“For any immersive Resident, Premium membership is a must.”

Many of the benefits and perks of being a Premium member are especially useful for those looking to start or expand a Second Life business. Second Life Resident Blueberryxx, owner and creator of the incredibly popular fashion store Blueberry - gave us some insight into how Premium membership helps her continue to manage and run her virtual business.

SLBlog_PremiumBlueberry.jpg

LL: What do you do in Second Life?
BB: I own a fashion brand called Blueberry where I focus on creating mesh casual/chic women's apparel. It's my real life job and my most beloved hobby at the same time. It is an incredible experience to create content with the heavy influence, guidance and feedback directly from the customers.

 

LL: Why do you like Second Life?
BB: I am very passionate about Second Life, because it is the only platform in the entire world where a community constantly inspires each other to greatness. There is no going back once you have opened the doors to the kind of diversity, compassion and purpose Second Life has to offer.

 

LL: Why did you become a Premium Member?
BB:  I became a premium member the moment I knew I was going to be working full time as a content creator in Second Life. It is so crucial to me to have instant live-chat feature, not only for quick handle on account security issues if they have ever happened, but for regular billing hurdles that might come up as well.

 

LL: What do you like that the membership offers you?
BB: Honestly for any immersive resident, premium membership is a must. Group communication is essential part of the community and premium membership allows for a much, much bigger group space. Between events, land groups, friends groups, support/help groups, and store groups, this feature makes our lives so much easier. For a beginner content creator the weekly linden bonuses and premium sandboxes are going to be essential and a lot less costly in the grand scheme of things. The perks of having your land space and mainland building rights are the cherry on top.

 

LL: What advice would you give others starting out in SL?
BB: Take advantage of the freedom of expression Second Life has to offer and never be afraid to approach people. Second Life gets truly magical when you let yourself be involved and it's an amazing experience there after.

The Drax Files: World Makers - Episode 39: Sergio Delacruz

by Community Manager ‎07-15-2016 09:20 AM - edited ‎07-15-2016 09:25 AM

“When you play a console game, you have to follow the directions of the developer. In Second Life, you are the developer.”

Meet Sergio Delacruz - creator of the inworld multiplayer game “Susan’s Diary” and owner of Delacruz Technologies.

As a creative free spirit, Sergio discovered that Second Life was a wide-open canvas for exploring and learning the fundamentals of building, scripting, and design. After making his very first pair of shoes inworld, Sergio’s passion for creation led him to craft a first-person shooter game in Second Life.

Sergio’s enthusiasm is evident in  this episode of the Drax Files. Watch the video below or follow this link to view it on YouTube. Subtitles are available for this episode, courtesy of Draxtor Despres, and can be turned on by clicking the “CC” icon in the viewer.

Because no party is complete without a token to take home - and because of the long history of bears in Second Life - you’ll want to drop by the SL13B Community Celebration Regions and pick up this cute keepsake to remember the whole shebang by!

You can pick them up at kiosks across the birthday regions, from June 19th - June 26th. The special party favor is also available on the Marketplace.

We’re excited to spend time celebrating Second Life with our amazing community - and looking forward to SL14B next summer!

The Second Life community comes together in incredible, compassionate ways that serve as a badge to show what amazing, diverse, and accepting communities we have all over the grid. Love is love is love is love is love.

In light of the tradegy that struck Orlando nightclub, Pulse this past weekend, Casper Warden of CasperVend has set up a kiosk in his mainstore to collect donations for the GoFundMe set up by Equality Florida to benefit and support the victims of this horrific event.

You can donate to the GoFundMe directly if you choose, or donate inworld at the kiosk Casper Warden has set up here - which has already collected an impressive amount of L$s which he plans to donate to the GoFundMe. 

If you would like to add a etworked kiosk to your own location inworld that will get added to the donations - you can buy one off the marketplace here.
