Look Good, Feel Good

It’s true what they say, “If you look good, you feel good.” I don’t know how many times I’ve been able to turn my day around just by doing my hair, makeup, and putting on a cute outfit. I so rarely leave my house, but when I get fixed up a bit…well, suddenly I want to walk the dog all over the neighborhood. I’m more apt to run errands and sing along to the radio in my car. So, the next time you’re feeling a little blah or just run down, try to muster up the energy to fix yourself up and get out into the real world for a bit. It really is amazing the way it will boost your confidence and your spirit.

Almost Time

It’s almost time for us to break out the summer clothes and the swimsuits. This year, I’m planning a big spring cleaning project. I’m going through my RL inventory and decluttering my life. Clothes I haven’t worn for more than a year…GONE! Knick knacks with no sentimental attachments or things I don’t LOVE….GONE! Then I’m redecorating my bedroom. I’m going to paint it and rearrange the furniture. I might do the same with my bathroom. As for the pool? Yeah, I’ll leave that to SL, cuz my ass does not go out in public in a swimsuit….*laughs*….there are children there and they will be scarred for life.

My Hands Are Tied

Being a blogger, myself, I know how devastating and frustrating it can be when a blog post gets rejected. I don’t always agree with the reason, but regardless I respect the decision of the creator and their blog manager. I immediately set out to correct my mistake. Perhaps that’s because I prefer to maintain a certain integrity with my work, but I also know that they have the final say in the matter. Arguing with my blog managers will get me absolutely nowhere.
As a blog manager for four stores, my hands are often tied when it comes to rejecting posts. If the item for that store is not being showcased properly, I simply can’t accept it. Trust me when I say I absolutely hate rejecting posts, because I know how hard we all work on our blog photos and sometimes we’re quite proud of how they turned out. However, if I do reject a post, there’s nothing worse than that blogger coming at me to tell me how to do my job or running to the designer to complain about me. I have never rejected a post for personal reasons…EVER. Nor is it ever my intent to hurt a blogger’s feelings. I’d say that most bloggers understand and are usually apologetic. Like me, they rush off to correct the issue straight away.
*sighs* Every once in a while though, I have bloggers get far too defensive and thus begins their attack. I’ve had bloggers threaten to quit if I’m not fired. That NEVER works, but it does amuse me….especially when none of them have ever quit like they threatened to. I recently had a blogger IM me inworld just to tell me that I was an idiot and there was absolutely nothing wrong with their post and they would NOT be doing it over. Sadly, that just means she’s going to lose her spot as a blogger in time. I know none of us are perfect and that’s why I try my hardest to be gentle when explaining why I have to reject a post.
Something for bloggers to remember when they argue with their blog managers or creators is that we often know other designers and blog managers. We talk. We share horror stories. So whenever a blogger makes a scene with a creator or a blog manager, word gets around and it becomes increasingly harder for that blogger to be taken on by other stores. So, to my fellow bloggers I say, “Don’t take it so personally.” We obviously liked you enough to bring you on as a blogger. The fact that one or two posts weren’t up to par, doesn’t mean we don’t like you. It doesn’t mean that we doubt your talents or abilities, it simply means that we need something that wasn’t done with that particular post. Please, don’t shoot the messenger, attack blog managers/designers, simply fix the issue and resubmit. Take responsibility for your mistake and learn from it.  If you honestly do not have time to fix the issue, then you’ve probably got too much on your plate and should cut back.

Do These Shoes Make My Ass Look Big?

Whenever someone asks if something makes their ass look big, I can’t help myself, nor do I even try to stop myself…I immediately answer with something random, “No, its your elbows that look fat in that.” or “No, you ass just IS fat.” Something along those lines, because let’s face it….its a no win situation. You might as well have some fun with it. They say there’s no stupid questions, but I disagree. I think there are lots of stupid questions, but I love them. Stupid questions, get stupid answers. *grins*

Sweet and Innocent

Why are you already laughing? You don’t even know what I was going to say! Stop it! *sighs* Let me know when you’re done laughing and I’ll continue…hell, I didn’t even get started. *narrows her eyes* Hey, we were all sweet and innocent once upon a time, except Tracy…she clawed her way from the womb and starting sucking the souls of the hospital staff. Creepy little ginger baby crawling the walls at night….yeah, that was her. Okay, I knew you would laugh at the title. I don’t really have anything to say except that this Becca set is so cute and versatile. You’ll want the fatpack, because the possibilities here are damn near endless. See? I made myself look sweet and innocent! You know better, but I can pretend….after all, isn’t that what we do in Second Life?

“C’mere, I want to tell you something,” she said as she crawled across the bed towards him. She curled her finger to motion him closer. As he moved closer, thinking he was about to get a kiss, she whispered, “I don’t give a fuck.”
He stood up, a look of shock washed over his face, “What the…”
She laughed, stood up and grabbed her purse and phone.
He was thoroughly confused as she walked out the door, until he walked around to the side of the bed she’d been standing on and saw two condom wrappers on the floor.

Squeal Worthy

I don’t think guys do this, but I can’t be sure. I am pretty sure they wouldn’t admit it. However, almost all girls I’ve ever known has done this. Oh, I’m sorry, what is THIS? Well, its all about that message we received or perceived. However, I have been known to throw myself across a bed and flail my legs about as I squeal over whatever fortune has befallen me. Whether I was squealing about having completed my final exams with flying colors or the guy I’ve liked forever is finally looking my way. Oh it could be as simple a new pair of boots that I’ve wanted for a very long time and I don’t want to take them off. I just want to swoon over them for a while.
Either way, I’ve had a few rather rough days lately, nothing I really want to talk about. However, I’m hoping we all get some squeal worthy moments as we approach the weekend. I think we all deserve it, don’t you?

Generic Post

The latest round of Uber is too fun. There’s a theme this month and its MOD. Oh my goodness, so many cute things. So, I’m sharing three with you today. We’ve got the Lamb hair that comes in two sizes, just in case you got a fat head. *giggles* The style hud offers three styles and each is as cute as the next. Then you’ve got the Bueno Grace top, I just don’t know how anyone could just settle on one. With just a peek of under boob, its sexy enough to make you feel sassy, but nothing is revealed, so you can wear it anywhere. Fortunately for me, I was able to match this up with the new Fina skirt from LYBRA that’s over at ULTRA. The asymmetrical hemline and zipper, made it too obvious to pair with the top. At least to me, the pose I’m using is actually in this Bird Nest Hideout from Consignment that I have set up on my patio. That Hideout was FaMESHed in February, so you’ll have to wait for it to find its way to the main store.

Dear Bloggers…again

So, this is directed to bloggers from me as a blog manager, not a fellow blogger. I can’t speak for all blog managers, but I know more than one that feels the same way I do. Time to put things in a little perspective. Here’s the deal based on my limited experience and I’d love to hear from other blog managers on this, as well. Feel free to disagree, but please keep it polite-ish. *laughs*

Bloggers, please don’t argue with your blog manager. It’s fine to ask questions, but when you challenge your blog managers and insult them? Well, guess what? We are human, too. We are not perfect and we make mistakes. Guess what else we do? We talk to each other. If you are a blogger and constantly arguing with your blog manager? You are going to get a reputation for being difficult and as word spreads, you’re not likely to get as many gigs. I’m not saying kiss our butts, that’s ridiculous. However, as a blogger you must be receptive to feedback, both positive and negative. Oh, and if you go running your mouth about the blog manager to the designer, they usually tell us.

Bloggers, please don’t hunt down the blog manager after your application has been rejected to argue about why you should be on the team. There was a reason you were not chosen, its fine if you want to know how to improve, but please stop begging for a spot. It’s not going to work and blog managers talk to each other about that stuff, too.

Bloggers, please refer to the brand you’re speaking about when reaching out to a blogger manager, because some of us work for more than one brand. So, especially if you’re dropping notecards on us, pretty please say which brand you’re talking about.

Lastly, its important that bloggers understand that when a blogger manager gives you feedback or rejects a post, its because we’re doing our jobs. We care about the brand we represent. We are human and make mistakes, just like you and most of us are bloggers, too. Just so you know I’m fully aware that I’m not perfect, I will tell you that I’ve had posts rejected by both CandyDoll and Cynful. They were fully within their rights to reject my posts for whatever reason they wanted, but I knew they were right about those photos. So, I simply did them over and that’s all we want…showcase the item, because remember it is a bloggers job to show off the items being blogged and hopefully make someone else want to own them as well.

Most importantly, we love most of our bloggers…MOST, because without you…we wouldn’t have a job and it is with you that we work together to make the brand the best it can be by sharing their amazing products with our own personalized perception. Don’t ever get discouraged, we all started somewhere and if your heart is in it, you will succeed.
