There is something I have noticed spreading its way across the SecondLife blog sphere. Recently people have taken to their blogs and written in a “rant” style. Expressing personal opinions and dissatisfaction with everything from attitude of creators; blogger styles; photographic quality; and general behaviour of folk within our virtual community.
At times I think I should express my views within their comment sections. Although some points I may agree with and see as relevant often I am left feeling that the writer has become nothing more than a spoilt elitist brat. Behaviour which I never encourage. My three-year old tantrum throwing toddler will attest to this as can a moody hormonal teen if anyone doubts the sincerity of my views on anti-social behaviour.
I realize however that instead of instigating warfare with a mass of supporters of that writer it is best to just stop following that blog. To avoid doing my own rant on ranting there are two things I’m going to say about what I’ve seen and read.
1. Just because something has always been done one way, shouldn’t mean new ways and innovations should be instantly dismissed. If we had stuck to the old ways we would all be scribbling with rocks on cave walls instead of adopting the wonderful technology of pencil, pen and keyboards.
2. Not all people have a high quality gaming machine with high performance graphic capture. Some of the world such as where I come from (country Australia) has very mediocre internet speed and function. We should remember and always be considerate that people usually do the best with what they have available.
As I am speaking of consideration I would like as a blogger to thank Katlene Niven and Annealyce Maertens from We Love to Blog and Chatte Management for their recent “Give A Heart” event.
Designed as a give back to bloggers, wonderful creators provided gifts and heartwarming notecards full of thanks and gratitude for what we all do here in blog world.
My favourite item was the wonderful Hugs locket from Stars!. With a special thank you engraved inside it is a reminder that when we appreciate one another great things are achieved and well … the world is just that little bit sunnier.
There is a reason sunshine is warmer than thunder storms.
Give a Heart runs till February 28th 2014. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Meadow%20Blossom/46/187/1002
Although not a official blogger for this event, in appreciation I wanted to provide a bit of a “CHEER” for the store’s who generously provided gifts for this event. Thank you for all you do, for without creations our photographs would be mighty boring.
Store names and SLurls.
