/me jumps up and down excitedly.


OMG you guys - I am SLoving SLife. There is just so much good stuff going on. I am going to tell you about two of those things today. (There is party info for the second one so be sure to read that!)

First, I am now the Events Director of the SL Blogger Group. I am really looking forward to this new responsibility. In September, I'll take over the day-to-day operations of the in-world group from Zoe.

When I first started blogging, almost the first thing I did after my first post was to join the SL Blogger group. I have come a long way since hiding shyly behind a plant at my first Blogger Meet-up Party. The only person I even sort of knew was the wonderful Looker Lumet.

I have met some incredible people and had some great fun at group activities. And more than once I have IMd the group in a blind panic because of technical issues with my blog. People were so helpful (even though every other IM was someone trying to be funny - bloggers love to be funny).

What are in my plans for the group?

  • Coordinating Blogger Meet-Up Parties!!! - These are a group tradition! Held quarterly, they give everyone a chance to meet in person for some R&R. Watch this space and the SL Blogger NING Networking site for details about the first one! **Hosts are needed - IM or email me if you are interested in doing this!**
  • Helping the group increase it visibility and membership numbers.
  • Setting up an in-world group HQ office!! This will be a place for all of us to drop by, hang out, share information, etc.
  • Supporting and promoting blogger activities and challenges - like the Blogger Mix & Match that Vint Falken and ArminasX Saiman organized last year.
  • Planning for an SL Blogger convention.
  • Helping the group be an even stronger source of tips, advice and support for one another.
I am always open to your feedback and ideas. Leave comments here, IM me in-world or email me at tymmerie@gmail.com.

  4. Yay! I am looking forward to seeing everyone at both/either event! <3

    We have approx. 40 blogger pics and i am starting to run out of room in the gallery. It will take some arranging to get things to fit well but I can do it.

    The theme for the blogger party is "Blogger Wear." (I really need to think of a catchier name for that.) I have another host in mind for the October party - I just have not told him yet!
