Sheesh, the last time i was here, wordpress looked very different. Have I been gone THAT long.. it’s been about 6 months I think.
Anyhow I was gone from Second Life for awhile, mainly because my laggy little laptop didn’t do a very good job of making it a pleasant experience. So, I’ve put together something a bit more decent.
I left the Wastelands recently. I loved the ambiance of the place but I decided to rent elsewhere… I get antsy from time to time and enjoy setting roots down in new places. I also decided to leave my parcel in LionHeartSL because I wanted to instead pay tier to the CDS (Confederation of Democratic Sims). They are a real community of people trying to actually nurture a virtual community. People run for office things are voted on (EVERYTHING – and although this can be a pain sometimes in the end it is an amazing process. Being part of making changes in a region, without even being actual Sim Owners is great. We get to discuss the Look, the Future and everything.
So, I have a full time space in the Colonia Nova Sim of CDS. Very good tier for a lovely parcel.
If you want a parcel of land, in an area that has a protected view, and with neighbours who won’t have unsightly builds that make you teleport to your nearest Screen and Privacy Hedge shop, you should really check it out. There are community events and lots of common grounds to wander and relax in.
Another little gem, one which I recently discovered is Chilbo. It too originally set out to do something similar. In their words they wanted to:
Chilbo is a community of artists, architects, educators, musicians, parents, hobbyists, students, and people from around the world who share a common vision that our interactions and experiences in virtual worlds can have a positive impact on our real world and our real lives.
Well, since their beginnings, they have gone through many changes, land acquisition, land sales, however they still have a nice town , very newbie friendly, and in the surrounding areas, they even have a few amazingly decent rental parcels. At first I was struck by the ‘old school’ look, but as I wandered around I got a sense of the spirit that went into the place, and that truly does still. I rent a parcel there at SUCH a good price I can’t believe it. It’s my actual home. My ‘just be me’ place, without being affiliated to my Divinaturist Fellowship headquarters – which in Colonia Nova I have available for people to drop in, so it’s more of a public place than a private Razzy place.
So I have to say I’m quite happy. Great community in CDS with people I have grown to know over time, and a new very nice little house in Kuwolt – part of the Chilbo community *grins*
Since becoming a premium member, I felt it might be time to get a little chunk of something on the Mainland. Many people see Second Life dying out, but really I see it picking up a bit in popularity. Yes there are still options like OpenSim available, which I DO need to reinstallmy version on my comp, and I DO hope in time it grows… I’m just not having enough fun yet. If you’re on OSgrid and want to say hi on there sometime, I’m Moonrise Azalee over there also 😀 I have a few Sims. OHhh the joy of ‘free’! lol
Okay, enough babbling for now. Must go. I will post some more pictures soon. Right now my comp doesn’t let me save SL snapshots to my hard drive – I can only email them to myself. And uhm.. that’s where they all are right now, LOL, sitting in my email.
