SecondLifeChallenge for Willow Dion

Willow20170605

Strawberry Singh put out a challenge to post seven facts about your Second Life. I thought this was interesting project so here are seven facts about Willow Dion.

  • Fact #1 Since I joined SL in 2005 I think I’ve always had a “premium account”. I’m not sure but I don’t think there was what is now called a free account back then. If there was I started paying for my account within a few days. Since I found friends and started having fun within a few days.Willow Dion July 2005
  • Fact#2 One of those friends, Bob, is older than SL. He was part of the beta test of Second Life and has a rez day of April 2003 and SL’s birthday is June 2003.
  • Fact #3 Bob and I had daily or almost daily help sessions for newbies during the latter part of 2005. He would do the more technical help sessions and I would have the “fun” part by having a pool party and showing people how to dance, turn their music on, and other fun tips. I was really addicted and one day I danced for eight hours. We had these sessions twice a day, one for Europeans and one for the Americans. Eventually I burned out.
  • Fact #4 When I joined you could pick your first name. But you could only use a last name from a limited number of choices that Linden Lab gave you. So, I became Willow Dion.
  • Fact #5 During my time in SL I took an almost two-year vacation where I would just log in once a month. During the time I was gone mesh clothing got good. It was so different I had to learn to get dressed all over again.
  • Fact #6 It took me nine years to find my husband. Since we celebrated our third anniversary the past summer good things come to those who wait even in SL.
  • Fact #7 After some initial experimenting I have stayed with the same basic shape I made until January of this year. Except when I was expecting our daughter and I made appropriate changes. I tried the first mesh bodies and heads but didn’t like them because they were not me. When Bento heads became available I tried them with the Maitreya body. I modified my shape so the combination looks like an improved me. Now I have a mesh body and head I like and doubt I’ll make many changes unless something spectacular comes along.

    No, I’m not reposting each and every blogger who played Berry’s new Challenge. But Willow belongs to the innermost circle of Thar She Blows! readership, so I’ll reblogv her as well as ZZ earlier. Any more of my esteemed readers participated in Berry’s new meme?
