Appreciation And Wonderment

I logged in to Second Life yesterday, and while sorting through inbound goodies, I stumbled upon a notecard.

Congratulations!! You have been nominated for a 2017 BVN Blogger and Vlogger Award in the following categories:

♥♥ Blogger or Vlogger of the Year (overall)
♥♥ Best Female Fashion Blogger

To say that I was stunned and honoured is an understatement of epic proportions. While I have been nominated for awards in the past, I was especially humbled by these nominations because I have had some real life issues in the last year which have affected my ability to blog. Without going into detail, it is harder and harder for me to compose and edit photographs. I still find pleasure in blogging, though, so I will continue as long as I feel I can do justice to the works of the wonderfully talented creators of Second Life. One day I will come to the decision that I no longer feel my work is up to my own standards and I will retire. I probably won’t stop taking photos; I just won’t publish them.

The categories for which I was nominated are tabulated votes by the judging panel. In other words, you won’t be able to vote for me yourself. However, there are several other categories that are eligible for public vote. I encourage you to visit the BVN website and cast your votes for some extremely talented vloggers and bloggers. You can click the photo below to go directly to the voting page.

The full list of nominees for Blogger or Vlogger of the Year, Best Female Fashion Blogger and Best Male Fashion Blogger can be found here.

I have copied the information card below to give you the full scoop on the awards.

Winners will be announced at our Bloggies Ceremony on October 14, 2017 at 12:00 pm (noon) SLT.

Between September 15th and September 30th, we will be opening the ballots to allow people to vote for all categories. Please encourage your friends and followers to vote on the BVN website before September 30th. The following image is attached for your convenience. Feel free to use it on your blog, social media pages, and anywhere else you would like to spread the word.

The ballot is restricted to logins only to avoid multiple votes from the same individual. Please be sure to log in to your google account before accessing the form. BVN does not gather nor retain your login credentials.

Five awards will be voted on or selected by a panel of experts. These include:
• BVN Member of the Year – hand-selected by BVN Founders
• Founders Award – hand-selected by BVN Founders
• Blogger or Vlogger of the year (overall) – tabulated votes by esteemed panel
• Best Female Fashion Blogger – tabulated votes by esteemed panel
• Best Male Fashion Blogger – tabulated votes by esteemed panel

The 2017 judging panel consists of Sophia Harlow, Skye Everridge, Strawberry Singh, and Garrete Moonkill. Please note that judges are eligible to win any category they are not judging. BVN Founders (Kess Crystal, Delicate Flower, and Trouble Dethly) are not eligible to win any category.

I am sitting here typing this truly in appreciation and wonderment; appreciation for all of my readers and wonderment that you thought enough of my work to recognise me. I also want to send a special thank you to the designers who have put their trust in me to blog their creations. You give me inspiration every time I log into Second Life.

Thank you all ♥
