2010 in review

Posted: January 6, 2011 by Salvatore Otoro in Misc.

I want to thank my mentor Stacia Villota of VirtualNeko .com for her inspiration and guidance without whom this blog would not have been possible. We met through Plurk around March of 2009. As I was showing her around the City of Lost Angels and it’s surrounding sims, we stopped to chat atop a chunk of highway in Lost Wastelands where we ended the tour, and she proposed that I do a blog about role play.  With her help I created the blog and learned plenty of things but also helped a large segment of Second Life that is involved in role play.  I started out with a little knowledge and humble beginnings but with Stacia’s encouragement and my creativity and writing skills, I created not only a guide for novice role players, but a place to find role play sims, a place to find shops that sell role play related items,  and a place to post my own adventures in my role play sim.  Stacia also helped me get a job at Role Magazine where I wrote about role play sims from July of 2009 to December 2009 when the magazine closed.  All this has led to many great things.  I started my own role play magazine, SLRP, which Feles Seitan inspired and encouraged me to do after Role Magazine closed its doors, and currently I’m writing for avataRPlay magazine.  

Once again. thanks to all who have read in the past.  I promise more good things in the future and maybe a few surprises as well.  Now, without further delay, the stats.

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
