Big Bad Blogger Challenge: Entry #1

So, I’ve decided to take part in the Big Bad Blogger Challenge.  It will indeed be a challenge for me.  I usually take hours on a blog entry, from taking initial pictures in world, editing them, writing the blog, tracking down slurls, to finally making sure to promote it a bit.  So, to do an entry a day, I’ll have to really work on my speed.

I missed the first day of the challenge, as I was out of town, but I’ll answer those questions now. 

How long have you been a blogger?
About six months?  I’ve been blogging at this site since early February, and I blogged a bit at another site for a while. 

How has it enriched your life?
That’s an interesting question.  Thanks to blogging, my SLife is definitely richer.  I’ve become a part of a community, and made wonderful friends, whom I may not have known otherwise.  I’ve improved my both my in-world pictures and my PhotoShop skills.  I think consistently writing and editing has been good; it keeps the mind active, and keeps those skills fresh.  I continue to be inspired by my fellow bloggers to do better . . . to be a better blogger, to be a better designer.  As a new designer, the blogging community, through Plurk and blog entries, has been amazingly supportive, which means the world to me.

On the other hand, the time I spend as an SL blogger takes away from RL time, which I have a hard time with.   Frankly, I’d rather spend the day working on a blog post than taking care of RL chores, and have been working to find a balance between the time I spend in each world.  I suppose, in that way, it presents an opportunity to improve my time management skills.
