Good morning ladies! Well, it’s 3:12 am, at the time that I began writing this post, and I am unable to sleep. Grab a coffee because this one is filled with info.
Or, you could refer to this, as “sleep blogging”, as I have been known to do from time to time… so, sorry if it is not “perfect”.
In the photo, I am sharing with you, items from Laq, Wicca’s Wardrobe, Glam Affair, Avi-Glam and, a cute backdrop from Nomi!
I am blogging about this issue now because, I want to make something clear to everyone involved, or people that stumble upon one of these lovely issues.
I have a very vast inventory, and the reason for this is either, I love what I buy, and therefore it sticks around… if I had no intention of using it again, why would I buy it?
Or, I may have procured the item from blogging for a particular store, and if this is the case, if it is still in my inventory, I fully intend to use it again.
Now both instances above fall into the category of blogging items that may no longer be available, however, if I happen to do this, I -always- make a note of the fact that the item is either no longer available or, -may- no longer be available. If the store were no longer open, I would not add credit, or I would add in my post that the store is no longer open.
And then, I go on to explain as to -why- I may be blogging said item.
Be it that maybe I loved the item so much, that I wanted to share the quality of said item with the would. Or, maybe it was the only thing I had to go with a look that I was trying to “pull off”, or maybe I just wanted too.
No matter the reason, I always share if it is no longer available, and lately both readers, and some designers, have not been reading my posts, other than just looking at the pictures, and getting upset with -me-, like I have somehow done an injustice, on purpose.
As a blogger and an SL resident, I feel it is important to share the things that you like. To have fun with your posts, and your outfits.
You bought the items for a reason or held on to them, and it is well within your rights to share with the world the things that mean so much to you, that you kept them.
You would be -floored- if you saw how many old and new items I have from a store called, The Plastik. I am actually very honored to be an official blogger for them now, so that list will undoubtedly grow… and you know what? Over the past couple weeks, I have actually blogged some of their older items as well, as some new ones!
This is the thing though… people need to relax. I was not intending on insulting anyone… be it a reader or a designer… I was trying to show respect, show them that something that the designer made, was something I -loved-, and keep around… not for them to get upset with me because I blogged an item that was no longer available because it was a group gift… I mean, yeah… I knew that… that was why, during my video, I point blank said it was no longer available! Sometimes, I feel like I waste my words, on deaf ears… does that make any sense?
For those of you who are lost right about now… This is my reaction to a reaction to a previous post I did…
And I know people on Plurk are saying, “I care too much what people think”, and I know in a perfect world, I would not but, this is not a perfect world, and I am not a perfect human… And I would rather care what people think, than to be uncaring, and make worse mistakes in life. Maybe that makes me weak but, so what?
Anyway… the moral of the story would have to be… When reading my blog posts, -please- for the love of everyone’s sanity, read the description!!!
There you will find notes about the products, like if it was a limited release or, if it is no longer available, or even if the store has closed, or if the event is ongoing or ended, etc etc etc.
For the most part, I stay pretty current, except when I share something I love… or, loved in this case… Honestly, the reaction from all of this really hurt. And if that makes me weak, get me some Wheaties so I can build stronger bones. Sigh.
No worries, the content of this post, has nothing to do with anyone included in this post but, still please refer to the notes… they are bolded… like this: Note. Hard to miss… right?
Now that I have said my piece, I am sure that someone will be a bully, and spout off to me but, I stand my ground. I meant zero offense. I honestly thought I was sharing my love for the product, as well as the creator, and they didn’t see it that way. I feel bad that they seem to think me malicious but, what’s done is done… no going back.
One last thing… this one should be easy…
Store owners… be gentle with bloggers. They are taking their time to advertise your items. I am not talking about the people that take you for granted… I am referring to the people that do their absolute best not to let you down, only to feel as if they have… Show them some love. Maybe on blogotex, in the little note area, leave a comment, just to show that you are happy the blogger, blogged. Or, give them -constructive- criticism, just show that you are in fact reading their blogs, and paying attn, to what they are doing.
And Bloggers, don’t forget to appreciate your sponsors. They do not -have- to give you items, they do not -need- to add you to their groups. They do it because they are a fan of your work… so, be appreciative.
Now, I am going to go play dress up with my avatar, and hopefully, this post made sense… but, I suppose we shall see.

Blog Post – One thing leads to another!
Again, I meant ZERO offense for my post. I do not even see how it could be seen as offensive. Showing a creator that I have been a fan, and til that day, would have continued to be… I just don’t see how this is a bad thing.
And the reason I am not now… I have told you all that, I do not judge people on how they treat others since not everyone can mesh well. I judge people by how they treat me, personally. And this, I don’t know. It was a slap to me. And, I do not respect that. I would have respected it all more if they had not replied at all when I sent the link, as I do with all my posts because some of the stores I blog for, it is a requirement, so I send it to anyone I blog.
So… based on how I was personally treated, as it stands, I have lost respect for this person. Maybe one day, I will get over it, or it will be mended… but, as it stands, I am not impressed. I am sure others in my place, would feel the same way. xo
