Uhm wut?


So, shopping is fun, but not when sl is hating on you hardcore. I've had the worst lag in sl all week. But I find something so funny, so I'mma sort of rant here. Every time I tell someone I'm a blogger they say something to the effect of  "Oh! I've always wanted to try that, I would love to get free stuff." Or people get into it thinking they're going to get a ton of free stuff, or money, or whatever.

News flash: That doesn't happen.

And frankly I get a little pissed when people get into blogging with that kind of attitude. It's like store owners who only start making stuff because they want to make money. Or DJs that only DJ to get famous. What the hell? That's not right! As a blogger, I spend a ton of money, and I'm freaking lucky if I can get a store owner to give me something free. And the only time that I legitly ask for something for free is when I find something I absolutely need for a post that I can't afford. And even then I almost never get what I want and end up having to wait two or three days to buy it.

"If you can't afford it, then you don't really need it." A belt, a pair of shoes, a hat. Anything can make or break an outfit. People don't realize how much most bloggers put into every post they make. I usually end up spending anywhere from 1k to 3k on a single post just trying to find the right crap to make my outfits as perfect as they are in my mind. Most of it doesn't make it in the posts.  I won't even tell you how much of a disaster my inventory is. Let me just say I had 3k items before I started blogging, all nicely organized.... now I have 13k, all under all my system folders in my inventory. I really need to clean it.

I've had friends, and I've known people who start blogging because they want to get famous, or they want to make money or they want free stuff. Needless to say I didn't show them my support for their blogs. Just like I don't show support for DJs who only DJ cause they want fans. The point of blogging is to express yourself, and share your opinions and points of view. It should be fun, and you should enjoy it. Don't turn it into a job.

I love my blog, I love blogging. Sure I hate spending massive amounts of Lindens on it, but I love shopping. Everyone hates being broke. But it happens. You always have to compromise  Do you think the best store owners make the great clothes they do because they just want the money? No they do it because they like making cute stuff that I and everyone else in sl loves.

I love the stuff I buy. Like this! Ugh how I love this outfit so much. All up in my happy place cause of it. I love the tattoo. It took me over a day to find this. Like over a day of dedicated  "I need a full body tat but only the right kind of full body tat". I swear I looked at this one like 7 times before I finally said. I bought it, and loooooved it! It works so well with this outfit! :D Not to mention the back is cuteness in a little skin defacing package.

This outfit's from the 100 block fair thingy by depraved nation, the same people who have Razorblade Jacket... cause I luv that store so muches :3. (Even though I haven't been accepted as an official blogger for there yet. T^T) I am so far behind on posts again  and I lack the motivation to write. But I have lots of motivation to shop, so I'll get the posts up for the month I promise, and I promise they will be very.... probably not too chatty, cause this was my rant. Imma end it with another "I luvs this outfit so much! :D"
I shall be back today with more stuff for everyone! Including stuff for guys :3.

  1. I'd like to see more transferable items and a "second hand" market like in the Gacha biz. Great posts, keep it up.
