Another one of Berry’s Monday Challenges/Meme is about SL Groups.

“Meme Instructions: Answer the following questions about groups and share some of your favs with us. Don’t forget to leave your link in the comments!”

  1. Have you reached the 42 group limit? I have, it did not take too long to be honest to get there!
  2. Do you do a lot of group hopping to keep up with all the groups you want to stay a part of? There is a couple of groups (free) that I hop in and out of, for special events or temporary groups that I need to join.  Other than that, I am fairly constant in my groups as I have been in some for a very very long time.
  3. What makes you want to join a group? I am in a number of Blogger groups as I have been invited by the designers, like Berry they take up the most of my slots. The rest are Store or Event groups that I like or too concerned to leave just in case anything good comes up.
  4. A lot of store VIP groups have a group fee which you have to pay to join. How do you feel about paying group fees? I am not crazy about Group Fees, It feels like the designers are doing everything they can to get as many Lindens as possible out of us.  Considering that I am a huge spending and very loyal to my favorite designers, I hate the idea of having to fork out more money than I already do buying all their stuff.  Designer ought to reward loyalty, not make us pay for it!  However, I have paid Group Fees (when they are not extortionate) for some designers that actually take the time to provide Group Gifts on a regular basis or some good incentives.  I am not cheap, but I cannot abide people abusing my trust with greed!
  5. Name a few groups that you are a part of that you feel everyone should look into joining and share your reasons behind that:
  • Maitreya VIP group is fab, love the clothing and shoes, and is free to join!
  • Gos Boutique Group is usually and currently only L$50 to join, however when he sends group gifts, the price gets raised to L$500. Also, Gos Boutique group members get a 10% discount on all purchases. So this is a group you want to join and stay in.” quoted from Berry!!!
  • Mon Tissu Soiree is one of my favorite stores, and I am always looking forward for new releases, they do have a wall of Group Gifts, though not often renewed to my recollection.
  • Glam Affair certainly one of my Top groups and designer as Aida produces in my humble opinion some of the best skins in SL. Ever since I fell in love with the Layla skin, there was no going back for me. Though I admit to straying with other skin makers at times!  Aida does release Group Gift skins from time to time, so it’s not bad at all!
  • Then, you have Groups like Celoe and [Elikatira] VIPs that are also designers that create content I am always rushing to get my hands on… At the end of the day, its all about love!

I tend to prefer to use “subscribomatic” systems when they are available over SL Groups cause, well they do take less group spaces and less of a burden to opt in and out of.  I wish all Blogger Groups would switch to the PXL delivery system, cause it would sure free up a lot of my Group Slots and I would be able to join more!…

Google Plus

So the question for me today, is to whether or not you guys are considering investing time and energy on Google +.  I was invited and got to create a profile for my RL self as well as my SL avvie.

Strawberry Singh is already on, but now I am curious to see who else will be joining us…

From what I have seen so far, it is much nicer than FB to play with; I do enjoy the clean minimalist feel of it. Then I am guessing we will be swamped with advertisers and what not as soon as it is out of Beta!

However, as a business owner, I am curious to see how the business profile pages will look and feel like and we will be able to integrate them properly with our sites and feeds…

What do you guys think? Anyone tried it yet?

La Polemique du Jour!

Call me crazy but I went back again to the shoe fair for more shopping, could I ever have enough? And right by the Baiastice store was Pixel Mode. I frankly had never heard of it before, and when I launched a quick search on google while the region was loading, I found Gogo’s blog about the shoes and also the extra blog explaining that she had a hard time with the HUDs.

To be honest, I am with Gogo there 150%!!! I wear mostly Lara Skins and matching it with scultped feet is often times a nightmare, SLink is one of the few where it is easy with a few clicks. I think it is that extra Brightness slider that makes a difference for me; I also love Maitreya a lot, I never had problems with them. However N-CORE HUDs make me cry…  I was never able to match my Lara skins properly to them but no problem with LeLutka or Glam Affair Skins.

Back to those stunningly gorgeous Fae Wedges, well yes I love them… after reading the post I admit I was weary of them, but I was wearing my Glam Affair Layla skin, I do not know if it was sheer luck or not but I managed to get it as right as I could.

Plus have you seen the skin detail? I was really pleasantly surprised.

All Scultped feet hands and other body parts are always a challenge, some skins are likely easier to be matched than others.  What is the solution to his specific problem, I wonder!?
