Or “Why not to play with firecrackers!”
So today is the second anniversary of my little blog and this will actually be my 423rd post. Somebody do the math! I look back and smile at my posts for the first few months…I really had no direction or goal…I just knew I wanted to share. My best 2 friends in the world, Jarath and Darth, encouraged me (egged me on really) and were…and still are…always up to my requests to dress up and be my patsy/dolly/zombie/voyeur/etc. They are the best support system ever and I couldn’t be luckier, honestly…I love them muchly ❤
I was reading an article from a well known and respected blogger a bit ago about how to pull readers in and the ingredients of a good blog…picking your audience and consistency was a big plus. I do neither…which could be why I don’t get 100 hits a day (or more…I’m amazed how some SL bloggers get hundreds of hits a day)…but I wouldn’t change a thing. I don’t want to have one look or one theme…I don’t want to do just fantasy or just fashion or just home and garden…or hell…just chicks (yep, love the malt). I like being eclectic (that’s a fancy word for not having any direction) and I like not fitting into a pidgin hole. I love doing pics with my dolly, with the zombies, being silly, being serious, being sexy. And if anyone’s curious, I get squat (Linden wise) for all this work. I do get the stuff, don’t get me wrong…stuff is nice…but I put out lindens a lot of times to make the picture work. Luckily, I blog for designers and events that I love, truly love, and I love every minute of the process. Figuring out what to do, setting up a shot, getting the shot, editing, posting and Flickering….easily and usually a 5-ish hour process from start to finish. I’d like to point out that I have a full time job and children and a 1st life….and this is what I choose to do for my recreation… for my tiny little bit of a creative outlet. When I first started…and easily throughout the 1st year, I used to joke that my friends were the only people reading my posts, but I’ve finally hit the mark where I have a pretty decent number of subscribers (over 100 but under a 1,000), I’m on other bloggers blog rolls and I get a steady number of hits (which is so funny…some days it maybe 11, the next day it’s 130…go figure). I’m comfortable in my little world and now I feel like when I say “ya’ll” I am actually speaking to people other than my besties (who are required to read my posts according to the bestie agreement) ❤
So anyway, this day means a lot to me and I do wish to express my appreciation (‘specially if you actually read all this and don’t just look at the picture) for sticking with me even if I’m not always your cup of tea.
This was our picture from last year…but hell….zombies and firecrackers…what’s not to love….. it’s so funny it bears repeating. I used to do a lot of funny zombie posts…I haven’t in a while…but I think I feel the need coming on for some more humor…the world needs more humor ❤
Zombie Jarath yelling “My head!!! Somebody grab my head!!
Zombie Darth yelling back “Screw your damn head…its the 3rd time this week you’ve blown it off….stop eating the damn firecrackers!!
Zombie Jarath yelling while spitting out seawater ” Well if you would go get us more brains I wouldn’t have to eat the firecrackers!”
Zombie Darth yelling back while looking for his arm “Why should I have to do the shopping, why can’t Roxi do the shopping, she’s the girl after all…what else does she do….SOMEBODY please find my damn arm before the octopus gets it!!
Zombie Roxi steps over, puts her foot on Zombie Jarath’s head and pushes it under the water to shut him up, then without taking her foot off the head, reaches down, picks up Zombie Darth’s arm and beats him senseless…wait, he’s already senseless…beats him brainless…no, that ship already sailed….beats the dead daylights out of him with it. Then beats him some more just for fun.
“THAT”S what else this girl does” she mutters as she hitches her bra up over her nonexistent boobs and goes in search of cake.
You can dress ’em up, but ya can’t take ’em out….
HAPPY 4th of July from Jarath, Roxi, Darth and Charlie!
Boudoir – Lift my Flag outfit w/hat (and shoes, but they don’t fit the zombies)
