Dear Second Life,

I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed blogging fashion. It's been an honor, and I had the most fun when I could write with other people.

I'm going to be focusing on real life writing for a while. I'm still going to be playing this game, but I'm just redefining what I play it for.

I'll leave you with a bit of advice from an old SL-blogging warhorse who's managed to blog almost every single day since I began in 2007: If you want to be a good fashion blogger, forget about metrics as a measure of success. Do it for your own satisfaction and for the love of what you do, or don't do it at all.

With respect,

Achariya Maktoum


So long, farewell...
Me and my trusty old horse photo sphere are riding off into the sunset.
