Syndication!

Today I finally achieved what I have been calling the “magical three.”  Since beginning my fashion blogging journey, I have been honored to have Marshmallows, {MUA}, Legal Insanity, On A Lark, and Charltina’s accept me into their blogging families without requiring syndication.  I am grateful to each one of them for sharing their designs with me and helping me grow as a blogger.  I have enjoyed styling their items tremendously and will continue to do so.

I have found that most designers require that a blog is syndicated on at least 3 feeds to even be considered.  I completely understand why that is a requirement for many designers.  If they are going to be giving you items to promote, you have to have an audience, if there is no audience, why give items away for free?

Once I began to learn the ins and outs of fashion blogging I made it a goal to achieve the “magical three” and hoped my blog was good enough to be accepted into well known SL fashion feeds.  I wanted to do right by the designers who believed in me, and get their wonderful designs as much exposure as I possibly could. I have to say this process would have taken much longer had it not been for SL Blogger Support.  Being a part of that blogging community has been invaluable and helped shorten my learning curve significantly.  Thanks to SLBS I achieved my “magical three” in what I felt was record time, and because of that I feel I have earned my SL fashion blogger merit badge.  Who are my “magical three?” The Grid Syndicate, Feed.Me!, and the SL Daily Wire.  Thank you for deeming my blog worthy to appear in your feeds, it means a great deal to me.

With school starting again in my RL, my time for blogging has been greatly reduced, leaving me twitchy at times as I crave to style and share all the goodness the designers have bestowed upon me.  So without further ado, here is my latest styling featuring the work of my wonderful SL mom, Discovering Destiny from On A Lark along with some striking eyeliner from {MUA}.

 I have continued to enjoy my Slink hands and feet very much (thank again for the unintentional nudge Shanty!).  I used the Deesses Skins Slink Avatar Enhancement Natural Nails set for my fingernails and toenails.  I love having perfectly matched hands and feet and a variety of nails choices available to me at a click of a button.

I found Lark’s outfit to be not only sexy but powerful, and as with many of her designs it has a rather earthy feel to me.  I opted to couple her design with a rather striking hat from Chic Zafari.  It suited my mood on many levels…the thrill of being syndicated and the desire to blog only to have RL slow me down…this hat symbolized to me the boldness and freedom of expression I enjoy.

The hair is from Eaters Coma and I have to thank Strawberry Singh and Farrah Helendale for the tip.  I discovered Eaters Coma at Hair Fair and had not gone to the main store to pick up more…talk about an oversight!
