Hello 2020!

As we say good bye 2019 I’m thinking about what a year it’s been for me, in “both lives”. Well, I’m one who doesn’t separate the two, but I’m not going to talk about that right now.

What a year it’s been! I’ve only two years as a resident; a year and a half ago I started taking pictures and getting familiar with the viewer camera tools. I did a couple of blog post at the end of 2018, just for fun. Then in the beginning of 2019 I decided I wanted to give blogging a serious go so I found a couple of sponsors that were willing to give a total newbie a chance and the ball started rolling.

After seeing each other online for 8 months, M and I met up and went on vacation together in June. It was wonderful and the most significant thing that happened in my life in 2019 but I’m not going to talk more about that here.

In August I celebrated reaching 1K followers by hosting a photo contest, which was awesome fun for me and I got nothing but positive feedback from those who participated.

Blogging takes hard work and dedication, from the start. I pride myself with having a quality blog and a high Flickr engagement. What’s the use of having 5K followers if you’re not engaging them? Will they remember your picture? Will they notice the brand you’re showcasing? Will they read your blog? Click on that Slurl? No, no, no and no. Ok, now I got derailed for a bit. Or maybe not, because..

In October I was nominated for The Bloggies. Being nominated was a great honour and it told me that I had managed to successfully enter the SL blogosphere and that my blogging was being appreciated by others. To those who nominated me, I’m sending a big big thank you your way.

So what’s in store for 2020? There’s a trip to the US in the very near future. I’ll of course continue blogging and I’m sticking to my all-round style because I love the freedom it gives me, the versatility. Every product is different, every picture lives its own life and sometimes it has a story to tell. What else? Whatever happens, happens. I’m approaching the new year with a positive mindset and my dreams and hopes for the future intact. I truly hope you can say the same. If not, then I wish 2020 is the year of positive change for you. Make it so.

Oh, and today I’m blogging the 2020 Photo Booth by CHEZ MOI! A perfect addition to any New Year’s party, with single, friends and couple poses ready for your guests to take memorable pictures.
