ACK! I know, I know, this photo looks eerily familiar 😉 I was actually going to make my previous post a double-shot for Avatar Blogger Month and Single Frame Stories, but then I remembered Whiskey asked us to use a landscape format. So…I went back and did some more editing on the same raw shot to make sure my entries don’t cause her grief!
I’m getting this in a bit late – the post for this week’s prompt, “Community” has already been published, but we have a grace period, since this is part of the display for SL10B. If you want to participate in Single Frame Stories, you can get in now with any of the three selected prompts: Identity, Community, and next week’s, Creativity. Just upload them to the Single Frame Stories Flickr group by Friday of next week.
While blogging is often a solitary endeavour, there is a huge number of bloggers in Second Life. Many may never meet another SL blogger. Yet there is a true sense of community through blog comments and other social media platforms. A blogger’s words can be nothing more than a personal online journal, or it can reach hundreds of thousands of readers. But no matter where on the spectrum yours sits, it’s a bit frightening – yet empowering – to realise that once that post is published, even if you delete it, there is still a copy cached somewhere on the interwebs. It’s a connection we all share and links us together.
A gaggle of bloggers – a group of individuals who face the same hurdles with every post they write – constitutes a community where I am happy to belong.
Just as an aside, neither thesaurus.com nor synonym.com have another word for “blogger”!
