The ancient art of bragging while admitting a flaw... you must rock at job interviews =^.^=

Admitting I've been a sl*t is not actually bragging, it is confessing! But you are right. The "humblebrag" is similar.

I've had the same job for 20 years.

The barter system rocks! 

I've never had much luck with it. But then maybe what I was offering was not worth much lol. Like yesterday I had an idea to make a sl video based on the song Mrs Brown You Have a Lovely Daughter and I thought ok I need an avatar for Mrs Brown to film. I went to old lady avatar stores and asked owners if they would give me some stuff and in return I'd advertise them in video.... nobody wanted to. A good sl video can get a lot of views so I thought was good offer. One time a guy offered to pay me to make a video of his sl business so I made it then when I asked him for payment he handed me some bad chairs he had made! I'm bad at bartering I think.

You are a shame for whole gnome-kind. If you keep up like this, the fabled Gnomes of Zurich will never accept you as one of their own.

The concept of begging isn't that new after all. I see that every day in the subways of Berlin.
And yes , it seems to work.

Not my thing though, I rather prefer to get paid for performance.

Getting gifts in SL is not necessarily begging, SL is a form of entertainment, do you live your SL in a way that entertains others? Don't entertainers get paid? Just because there is no set price for a particular performance doesn't mean it is not payment received for services provided. I seek to enhance the SLs of others, and now and then they give me linden because of it. That is not the same as sitting in a subway with a cardboard sign.

In RL I provide a professional service - I charge private clients a very high price, negotiate a mutually beneficial business-to-business rate for less private work, and also go out into public spaces to do my thing for free - 1) because I don't believe certain services should be the preserve of the wealthy, 2) because an active presence in my environment generally feeds back into both the creative and commercial aspects of what I do.

You get the wrong idea about all furries then and just lumped us all together in one spot

Everyone else: Feel free to skip this part. It's off topic.

And just what do you think my idea is exactly? Did you even ask?

Completely off topic, but fine, if you want to go there let's go there. Since you're going to be like this about it.

I got the right idea about a lot of furries (at what point did I ever say all?) of which is fine and dandy because I'm one of them and have spent a great deal of time around many others and seen it with my own eyes what the "most common" public type of furry is (note: I'm saying most common while also stating minority matters as much as majority). That's right, I was talking about noting more then being a nudist (more none erect ones then erect ones. But if people are "always horny" that's still being themselves too. Can be a strange concept when you don't engage with strangers). Did you even know my idea at all before telling me it's wrong and is a not only my own viewpoint of which I'm entitled too but also a boneified fact? Go to any adult human club and compare it to a furry club. Speaking as someone that gets on SL every day for hours on end. If anything I was trying to hint at humans which might struggle to adapt to naked furries around them (because, you know, difference can be scary for some people). The reason for my earlier comment of "Even furries getting the wrong idea" is because BOTH furries and "humans" can and will assume stupid things and be judgemental idiots about it. Not about just each other but also "their own kind" (I think you overlooked that part). I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt this time and trust this is a simple misunderstanding, but I'm also pointing out there's just no excuse for telling anyone they're "wrong" and take that approach with them (let alone me). It doesn't make people want to listen. Either way I'm moving on from this part of the conversation in the interest of keeping the thread on topic and will not be replying to future comments on the matter. Not to mention I'm tired of people assuming instead of asking without acting like they know better and telling me what to do (G sims my ass), which is only going to lead to drama (even my loving owner won't put up with me if I do it and vice versa). With others as much as myself at that. I don't care if you're a human or a furry, that approach will never end well and sparks drama. How does it make you feel when others do it to you? For others reading I decided to leave out most of the rest of the quote. Frankly, if they're going to talk to me that way I don't care enough to "listen" to the rest of what they say, even if I did read it all. Consider this making a point.

Everyone else: Moving back onto the topic at hand.

I would guess you can still make money in breedables if you can find a popular one and know what you are doing.

So THAT'S why people breed them. I thought they were just doing it for the fun alone. Never occurred to me people would be doing it for lindens. I'll probably skip on this one though. I imagine it's a bit like a simplified version of those "Make a farm" games with livestock. I remember just such a game but forgot the name of it. Still a curious subject however. Let's say someone wanted to start up in the area. How would someone start up, and end up... I dunno. How do you you "sell them" I guess? I don't know much about this. Personally I'd rather "Have one from scratch" so "Raised by a stranger" holds no appeal for me. So I'm trying to see this from the point of view of someone that wants breedables raised by strangers. I'm going to go along the lines of "Decoration to be viewed when bringing others over to hang out with them" or something. I can't really call it company because the breedables themselves aren't sentient. Seen them around a bit and I guess i can see the appeal from a none personal viewpoint. Maybe they are kind of cute too... But I'm an evil being of fiery fury! Must not fall for those cute charms... Ok, maybe I can give them a belly rub. It's not like they're making us slaves to look after them, right?

If you have a good computer and can make use of the "ultra" end of the graphics scale, and you have some basic skills in Photoshop or something similar, you can do SL-photography. Many people will pay upwards of L$500 for a good profile pic.

Good idea. I actually very briefly considered it once but I'm not sure how good I'd be at it. my comp can handle it for sure but I'm wondering about things like having to get the "green screens" to set up the backgrounds (which themselves would cost a bit I imagine). There's also "In the real environment" though. May or may not be able to do something in the area. I'd probably keep my price cheap too, even if a pic is good. is there a way to get in some "free practice" in the area? A "Practice Photoshop sim" or something? Probably won't end up doing it but could be worth giving it a shot. All I can really think of is getting someone you know and heading to locations with a certain style (cliffs, volcanoes, etc). Maybe if I get some practice in I'll feel more confidant in the area. Can be so tricky to get a picture to look good when you're both at a different distance.

 

DJ's can make good tips by the way. Seen someone get tipped 5000L in one go once. Not my area but could be for others. Tips are more commonly in the double digits though. Normally you can end up with a few hundred if you're upbeat and engaging enough. That's the way I win contests. Actually... I know someone that wants to do DJ again. So any information there could help them. I can pass it on.

I actually decided to escort myself recently. I used to be very put off by the money side of it strangely enough. Mixing money with pleasure, you know. In the end I figured "It's a donation, not a mandatory payment" and "I make people feel better after talking which often happens to lead to sex". It might not cover my sub needs much (not from females anyway. Males are way more common) but I talked people into treating me in ways I like when I look out for them before. Talking and listening is an escort thing too. I'm REALLY good with posts (long and short alike) but I don't want to make people feel like they have to pay me either. Or otherwise need to "keep up". I'm adaptable.

Been trying flesh and fur a bit and there's been some nice chats with people. I'm not sure if the roleplay tag means less people approaching me due to thinking they might need to post "good enough" when I can actually do "Small posts" and even "just posing". At the same time if I use the AFK tag I worry about people thinking they can't post with me. Maybe I could put on a group/collar tag with text of doing both or something. Anyone else had problems like this and found solution for it? I also have an owner to be around for on a daily bases so I'd rather not be away for too long if possible. Can head out today though so going to see what I can do. I'm actually getting lindens to get something custom made for her (my idea, not hers). Might take a while but it's going to happen. I guess I cooould try my hand at making avatars myself, but yea, zero experience there. And this will need a skilled hand. Speaking of which I will need to find someone to do something eventually. Any group for "custom avatars"? Specifically warframe. More specifically Valkyr. Don't mind if it costs, I'm after the best. I'm guessing really good custom avs costs between 3-6k? Depending on how different it is (different meaning not normal species).

Making money in breedables is about a lot of things. The basic thing is buy low and sell high. Look for ones that have some trait in demand...(go to a lot of auctions to see what is in demand) buy a mating pair with that in demand trait and make babies, sell the baby's at auctions. It's a lot of work because "what is in demand" can change in weeks, days, or hours. So you are always at auctions keeping up with things. Then you have to be an expert in what things sell for. This also requires going to auctions all day. Then the breeadble has to be popular with at least 5000-10,000 people in the group. You can also make money in this by creating items for others into this breedable.... furniture, huds, genetic charts etc. I made close to 60,000 lindens making a few charts that showed breeding techniques when I was into it. 

I remember once I bought a breeding pair for 10,000 lindens in the morning, a very good deal as they were selling for twice that nornally.... and by noon the price was already dropping hard on them...I quickly spammed some groups and in 2 hours I had sold them for 20,000 lindens making a 10k profit,.... the next day they were selling for 5000 and just went down from there everyday until nobody wanted them anymore. It can be a hustle and most people lose money in this game. But then a few get rich while they are popular. I remember this one person bought a couple for like 500 lindens.... got a new rare baby.... and then quickly sold the baby for 120,000 lindens. Good luck there!

Is there such a breedable anymore? Perhaps Amaretto & Kittycats come close but Meeroo, fennux and fawns seem to have crashed entirely or at least that is the impression I have gotten. Some breedables vanished entirely during my absence.

I'm actually thinking of getting a couple Meeroo again for nostalgia's sake and breeding them just for fun without selling the offspring, though if there is still a breedable worth getting into I wouldn't mind having another jab at that. Auctions are fun and its been far too long.

Way to go right back off-topic. xD 

That's such a specific thing that you'll probably need a 3D modeler. Offering them 3-6k (I'm assuming lindens) for a custom avatar job is going to be an insult. Double that number -- at least -- and let them sell it on Marketplace if you can't afford to go higher.

I don't know. I put my remaining meeroo nests in my second life market place store and am busy with other projects. I think some version of cats was popular after meeroos died out...but that was like a year ago as well. I just got a new piece of land yesterday and the person behind me has 100's of some cat breedable on his land. Hope he don't lag me out lol.

Hmmm

The only advise I can give is (because it works for me):

Have an exciting Second Life and write about it on your own blog. Then sell advertising space or make an affiliate deal. Doesn't  work for everybody, but I make a quite serious amount every month with that (between 200 and 2.000 USD* depending how lazy I am). But in my case: If your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

50 L$ an hour? Seriously?

Flipping burgers at Mc Donalds makes you a lot more (Which you can exchange for Lindens)! Come on don't waste your time and go have fun instead!

 

*yes that is united states dollar not Linden dollar

Hi. I actually have a blog and I couldnt actually understand how you make money out of it.... Would you please explain to me in detail? Real.life money and Linden dollar too. Thanks

Since at least 6/14/2018 - "Crystal Collector: I'm sorry but an error occurred." malfunction has been tossed out so until that gets resolved no more L$ from Realms. I'm hoping this is temporary as I used to use LR for a little extra spending cash too.

Nobody here in the forums can do anything about such errors.  I'd suggest putting in a Support ticket.

For starters let's get one thing clear. IRL money too tight, real money not an option for me any time soon. Not after £400 being stolen and rent going up by another £60 a month. I actually got most of my stuff as gifts for being a nice enough person. 

"gifts" for being "nice" is the easiest way to earn Lindens

If you do something of value, put a price tag on it. If you can not put a price tag on it, it is either:

1. Begging

Or

2. An invitation to abuse you,

Or

3. Not worth much,

Or

4. All of the above,

I am sorry but many good creators give their stuff for free. And also in RL many good inventors have donated their work to benefit humankind. Thanks God for them!!!

We need to tell that to whoever thought there were no non-capitalists in SL!
