"Etamae signed up for Second Life on January 28, 2016. A life without art would be a sterile living space for Etamae. She has no standards for her work, but tends to be expressive creations. These arise from things she has seen, from the creations of others who have inspired her to transform them into something else." Read more on the blog.

"I was interviewed on Monday evening at Fantasy Faire 2021 by Saffia Widdershins. It was a wide-ranging conversation which I enjoyed very much, and included questions (both from Saffia and the audience) on why I choose to write under my avatar name, why I choose not to pursue ‘traditional’ publication routes (and the work that goes into self-publishing), the difficulties facing new residents in SL (and how my post last year for beginners was my most read post), what makes SL special, and how virtual worlders might differ in their perspectives from non-virtual worlders."

"Tutsy Navarathna signed up for Second Life for the first time on May 21, 2008. At a very young age, Tutsy understood that he needed a job that would allow him to live a little “outside the system”.

This is Bamboo, her art, all of her." Read more on the blog.

"My avatars online persona started with an email address. This way I could separate SL related, avatar specific, mail from other day to day RL stuff. These days such things can be acquired in just a few minutes for free. Then I thought it would be fun to tell people about my adventures in SL, so I bought a website domain for a blog, although I didn’t start using it for quite some time. When I actually started using that, a Twitter account to promote it followed as well as a Flickr account for photos I took inworld." Read more on the blog.

"Now I have seen some beautiful houses and villas in Second Life, but never such an awe-inspiring and prestigious palace complex as Crito Galtier's residence. I have been to Versailles some years ago, which is actually more of a city than a palace. You have to imagine something like that. While Crito was waiting for me on the steps of the palace, the clock in the tower struck eight." Read more on the blog.

"Harbor is strong stimulated by the colors. The way in which she constantly shifts colors, how she closes or opens the room with colors, gives colors to move slowly or quickly, forms that she creates with them and occupies them differently and touches us deeply on an emotional level. Colors and shapes are perhaps Harbor’s greatest fascination." Read more on the blog.
