In Second Life, roughly 80% of
residents models are bloggers and belong to same circle of designers who are doing multiple events and releasing items for all these events while busy copying all the items from real life, what happened to second life designers setting the pace for real life pffff.
This post is about bloggers and blogger managers.
There have been whispers of allegations,bias and high handedness being displayed by blogger managers and the whisper is getting deafening.In the words of one of the whisperers who attempts to explain the nature of these allegations using a scenario:
“What can you do, when you are a new MG? Checking if all bloggers are doing their work like you have been contracted to do according to your job specification and you see a particular blogger you personally hate/dislike?
A good challenge is when such blogger cannot hold the high limit one month, you call the blogger and tell them that they have to do more or they will get kicked out of the blogger group.
In that moment the blogger is in panic, trying to be a better blogger and waiting expectantly for new items and things to blog, but there are no new things in the group. The blogger starts wondering and opens the group info; ok no new notice, he then assumes that maybe the creator is taking a break. Then blogger notices the creator had made some new items and is selling them at an event, and blogger thinks or assumes that the creator is not in the mood to share these items with the blogger and no need for the item to be blogged or posted. Blogger leans back and assumes all is right no reviews means no work. But at the end of the month someone kick the blogger from the group and blogger begins to wonder why?
Blogger then do the normal thing and ask the blogger manager and she tells that, there was in the past 6 review and you have nothing done. Blogger then defends with; but I had not seen any review. Too late, you are kicked.
Shocked you start thinking how can this happen, what was wrong?
Down the line, the blogger gets what was happening, the MG had simply changed the bloggers rule, the blogger can´t read any notice in the group and she might only wait until the end of the month. Good thing blogger has no proof, because blogger is already out of the group. The MG will be very friendly and happy about the elegant method to kick you! Kudos to the blogger Manager, but is that professionalism?”
Whisperers further noted that:
Rules are more hard for bloggers; they doing work without payment, the clothes, skin and etc are no payment. A blogger wears just a moment these clothes in the short time until taking a photo and the next is already waiting. Blogger just love to showcase fashionable pieces and also often buys things to show their reader on what is available and new trends.
Whisperers feels it is important that a blogger stay free, not blog things which are bad or not the style. A blogger work for his readers giving free information’s, work without payment.
Thats why I love the comments on Strawberry Singh about blogging “Because blogging is just my hobby and I do it sporadically, I NEVER request review copies, I do not fill out blogging applications or forms, nor can I follow any blogger group rules. Please keep that in mind if you are sending me requests to join your blogging team”
Is she less of a blogger? Nope and she is still doing very very well and lot of residents are still getting inspired by her blog post each time and mostly she is never been rushed to blog mutliple items at once.
We can´t say names, but we think its time to tell about bad methods!
