I’ve noticed that I get emails and IMs with a lot of the same questions so I thought a FAQ page would be informative and an easy place for you guys to look up questions I get asked a lot. This page will be frequently updated.
I found you/your blog through Empire Avenue (or another social network) and I’m interested in trying Second Life. Can you tell me what exactly is Second life, how I play it and is it free?
I saw you wearing something on SecondLife.com and I’d like to purchase it for my own avatar, can you tell me where I can get it?
Anything I’ve ever worn for SecondLife.com or blog posts I’ve done for Linden Lab can be found in my Linden Lab category.
I saw your picture on SecondLife.com how did you get it there? Is there a contest or application process to get your picture on the home page or the marketplace?
As far as I know, there is no application process. Linden Lab emailed me and just asked me to submit a photo. I am not sure how they found out about me. One thing you can do to get their attention is, join the Second Life Official Flickr Group and submit your pictures there. But make sure to read the rules in the description before you do. They choose “the Second Life Photo of the Day” pics from that group.
All of my computer parts can be found on my Computer Specifications Page, which I keep updating whenever I replace or purchase something new.
Please click over to see my Blog Policy for all the details on how I run my blog.
You can see all of my Second Life affiliations on my about page.
Do you make or design anything yourself to sell inworld? Do you have a store? Do you have an ALT that has a store?
Everything I make or sell can be found in my marketplace store. I do not have a store inworld nor do I sell anything on any other ALT avatar.
I want to hire you to do PR work for my brand or work for my magazine or help me with this event I’m planning.
Due to my real life work schedule, I do not have a lot of time for SL much anymore, therefore I cannot add more to my work load. So no, I can’t do any of those things. I apologize about that and I hope you understand.
I am married in RL and not interested in dating in SL.
No, I’m not from India, never been there, but would like to go someday! I was born in Pakistan and grew up in the United States.
In my thirties.
Yes, I have a career in real life. Second Life is just a hobby.
Can I add you as a friend in Second Life? Can you come to my party or dance club or socialize with me?
In all honesty, I probably can’t. I’m kind of over the social aspect of SL and only use it as a creative outlet for my photography and blog. I really only login for business purposes and don’t like to socialize or chat too much inworld because I’m usually in a photoshoot and trying to focus. I also don’t like to add people to my friends list unless I need to interact with them for business purposes. Thank you, I hope you understand.
A lot! I am a social media enthusiast. This is where I like to get social, so if you’d like to socialize with me, you can check out my social media page to see all the networks I’m on and how I use them.
My WindLight Settings are available for download on my WindLight Settings Page.
I only login to SL when I am blogging, vlogging or doing some other work. Sometimes I forget to check my notecards and then they get lost in the sea of notecards and updates I get on a daily basis. I also lose IMs often, even when I am online because I will be in a photoshoot and then all of a sudden I will crash and lose everything. The best way to contact me is via email, I will usually respond within 24 hours.
I’m just a girl that likes to ramble in her blog and take pictures. I’m not a stylist or fashionista so I don’t feel comfortable helping people with their style and avatars. Sorry about that.
I am not affiliated with the designers of the items I blog (except for Zaara Kohime), therefore I am unable to answer any customer service queries. Please contact the creator or their customer service team. If you have CSR questions about content from Zaara, feel free to IM or email me.
No, I do not.
No, I’m sorry. I do not have time to do custom shapes.
No I don’t have any of that set up. I do have a support page where I list 10 other ways you can support me, this blog, my shopping habits and adventures within Second Life. Thank you for the thought though!
I do not offer any of these kinds of services, however I have a page of Photographers, Graphic Artists and Vloggers in Second Life that will be able to assist you.
I am having trouble with a mesh body or mesh head, can you teach me how to wear or use it one on one or write out a step by step for me?
No I can’t sorry, I don’t have time to do that for everyone. However, I have a video tutorial at this link where I show you how to shop and then wear a mesh body and mesh head. If you are still having difficulty, please contact the designers of the mesh body and mesh head for customer support.
If you have any questions that you don’t see answered here, feel free to leave them in the comments below or email me and I’ll answer it as soon as I can. Thank you.
