Silly is Published!

The day has finally come…Silly Avro…the account I had created as a junk account (She very nearly was Whatever Avro…lol) is now a published writer!  This avi of mine has done much.  As I said she had been made because I thought I had missed some kind of freebie in the avatar creation process.  I made her on a whim just to see if I had messed things up when I set up my original avatar.  Silly was never really essential, but I rather enjoyed her when I wished to be “alone.”  I could come and go into SecondLife w/o clingy “friends” inquiring about my every move.  Silly was the avatar I used to explore the subcultures of SL.  I remember the day quite clearly when I was on my original account, bored with terraforming and decorating a home few came to visit.  I remembered a class I had in college…it was cultural anthropology…and I decided then as I stared at my boring SL that I would become a cultural anthropologist in SL.  The subcultures in SL are numerous, so I knew I could be busy a while with that.  I started with the Furry community, then ended up briefly on an Anime sim, then a Drow sim, then Gor… *smiles*  Gor is where I found my home, but it was not meant to be for Silly.  My new main continues to live in Gor, and for a time in the peak of the Meeroo Craze, Silly was brought from the avatar storage closet to be used as a bot.  In time she was no longer needed for that, but in just seeing her from time to time, spamming away, I realized I missed having that escape.  The ability to escape my ever growing friends list and explore SL outside of role play.  I have been very pleased to be a part of the Avenue team.  They have given me just what I craved…assignments that pull me from my rp and into the other corners of SL.  I have met some very nice people I would not otherwise know and seen things I had no idea existed.

And now I present my articles….Enjoy! 🙂

Always Silly

Things have changed since I last wrote about Silly.  She was my All-Things Meeroo Alt for a long time, until the Meeroo Market crashed.  I could not justify putting as much Linden into advertising and rental space anymore with the dramatic drop in sales.  I had converted Silly into a bot for a time, which did help me keep a nice current of Lindens flowing for a while, but unfortunately I was never one of the lucky few to make that one huge roo sale.

I retired Silly again and found I rather miss her.  She is as close as I can get to my original avi, and her inventory is well stocked, so I had to find a new use for her.

My SL is largely composed of Gorean roleplay and Meeroos.  It is quite easy for me to keep to myself and do my thing.  I do find myself curious from time to time about the rest of SL, the SL outside of Gor, the SL I used to live in .  Silly has always been the quirky side of me, so I dressed her for a safari and decided to make her my explorer.  How has SL changed in the 5 years I have been a part of it?  I have now spent more of my SL time in Gor than out of it and I can’t help but be curious about what all the other avatars are doing.

One of the things that has fascinated me about SL is how creative people can be.  SL is definitely a medium for art…and not in only the traditional sense, but in sim design as well as the many facets of fashion.

My goal with Silly is to explore, and to write about what I see.  It would be awesome to connect with a SecondLife magazine to go on assignment for…I figure that is my next project.
