Looking Back on 2015 in Second Life


The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It's the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared. 

Lois Lowry



          Yes, that time of the year has rolled around once again!

          When I prepare my last story for the year and look back on what my year in Second Life (SL) was like.  (Significant Other walks away saying once was enough!)  This is my time to see what I’ve accomplished or not.  Then to reflect on it.  (You’ve been warned!)

          This year began for me shortly after the loss of someone who was close to me in Real Life (RL).  I wanted to be more positive and upbeat because of this.  It would have been too easy to slide into despair and negativity.  (Kudos for Significant Other’s help here!)

          Trying to be positive, my primary goal for 2015 inworld was to be less of an obituary for closed sims and to focus more on the communities there. 

          Other goals were to keep my series like Sex and the Single Avatar going, try to meet someone from Antarctica, experiment with social media, and most importantly, have fun! 

          How’d I do?

          Well, even if I do say so myself, pretty good! (Significant Other always said I have a healthy ego!)

          Some of my highlights were blogging more about people helping other people inworld, I got a job, wrote about maintaining balance inworld and who are our friends in SL.  Not only did I continue series like Sex and the Single Avatar and Erotic Art in Second Life but I started a new series, The Great Castles of Second Life. I also kept current with all the happenings with Perryn Peterson and his crew over in Mieville.  My readership on my blog is up thanks to social media.  And, I finally met someone from Antarctica who visits SL regularly! 

          There were many more great people with great stories too! 

          What did I miss?

          Not too much in my opinion!  (Significant Other is still unsure if my glossing over the
negatives is a good thing.)

          I still haven’t made my voyage across the seas inworld but my excuse is my crew jumped ship on me.  (We won’t explore Significant Other’s question about why they jumped ship.)

          Overall, I feel I had a good year in SL having fun and I hope my readers enjoyed my journey as much as I did!  I went to new places, met new friends, and had new experiences!  (You’ll have to read my blog for all the details!)

          I’ll still be blogging as I go forward and another story will tell about my plans for 2016 in SL!   

As always, I’m grateful to all inworld for their kindness and time in stopping to talk with a stranger who was passing through their lives
