Second Life Writing – Example Events

I thought I’d make a running history log of writing events, and meetings I’ve attended in Second Life, some with success, some not so much. Such is Second Life.

Second Life Writer III

This is the final part of my own newbie adventures into Second Life (unless anyone requests any further). In this, my fifth day as a second lifer, I explore the Writing Centres, my own home island, and learn to dance, and turn my music on. I also blow up my laptop.

Second Life Writing II

Today is my fifth day as a second lifer. When I say it like that – “second lifer” it makes me feel like I’m in jail or something. And in Second Life, sometimes I really do feel that way. I’m amazed by the range of feelings I can go through simply in one day. My [...]

Second Life Writing

Yesterday I joined Second Life. I joined because of the opportunities for writers within Second Life. Two days in, and I’ve found that I’m probably the most inept newbie at Second Life encountered for some time in the virtual world. Perhaps a second life is just not for me.

Social Media Dashboard MindMap

Writers online should be aware of the opportunities and networking potential (not to mention the distraction factor, and the all important fun factor) that today’s social media offers. As a Part 3 followup to my own series on Social Media, I would like to introduce you to how I now organise my own social media [...]

Social Media Strategies [Follow-Up]

Recently I posted a post entitled, “Social Notworking, with AlertThingy” in which I described the use of a free utility tool for keeping me informed of updates from Facebook, Twitter and RSS feeds. At the same time I started thinking about my entire Social Media strategy for my normal day. It seems I’m not alone [...]

Social Notworking, with AlertThingy

On Friday last week, I allowed myself to spend the entire day social notworking. Note: the term, “social notworking” is earmarked as one of the internet phrases to watch out for this year. And it certainly indicates something towards the intense distraction factor that the internet and social networking services offers to anyone who is [...]

LibraryThing and Twitter

Good news for LibraryThing users (like myself) announced on the LibraryThing blog today – there is now integration with Twitter. This will help me with my own lack of updates to a very worthy book catologuing and social networking site, I’m sure. It simply means messaging in my newest books…
