Alysha's Second Life

Where Fashion Is Too Good To Be An Obsession

JANUARY WRAP-UP: A Month of Sales & Fashion

So, as I poke around WordPress, I find that I’m loving my little blog stats.  And being that my RL job centers around advertising, I find it interesting to see what is popular and in demand for the public to read.

Hence the birth of “Monthly Wrap-Up”.  At the end of each month, I’ll show you what I look at – the top 10-or so posts and frequently clicked links – as well as any ideas I have of additions to this blog.  And I’ll be looking for your input.  Leave comments, tell me what you want.  If you like my idea(s) or want something different and I can do it, I’ll move forward with it.  After all, I do all this for you! :o)

I’ll break it here so that I don’t fill up unnecessary space on the feed. :o) (hopefully I did it right.  If not, I humbly apologize and quietly ask for assistance from anyone that can offer it!) But please feel free to click on over and visit!!

So let’s start, shall we?

Very interesting to see what people were into reading and learning about. 

Things I’d like to do in the relatively immediate future (barring my procrastination fever):

Reconfigure the SL Fashion page:  I know this got in the top posts for the month, but I look at it as a dead page.  It was the very first page I made when I was still trying to figure out what all this was.  What I would like to do – and let me know what you all think – is rename it “SL Fashion Directory”.  Kind of an offshoot to the various categories in the blogroll, I would compile all information for a specific content creator there (ie.  Last Call, website/blog address, SLurl, related blog posts here).  This way, if you were looking for someone/something specific, you could find it quickly rather than poke through the posts and the blogroll.  Might take me a while, but I can certainly start it.

SLurls in the Blogroll:  this might be redundant to what I have above, but I thought I’d throw it out there.  A lot of people have thanked me for including SLurls when I can.  And with a Mystitool, obtaining SLurls is rather easy (provided I’m in-world lol!).  Would you want me to add another blogroll category for SLurls?  Or again, is this just repetitive of the above?  I think I prefer the SL Fashion Directory to this, but let me know what you think.

Any More Features?:  again, I create things as inspiration hits.  But I will steadily continue with Fresh Off the Blogs, Reviews (when I get them), Cera’s Closet Combos (when I get her in the room!), Fashion posts (people have told me they like these because I do a full review from top to bottom.  I generally pick designers/content creators that happen to jump in my mind or stand out that day in my inventory.  I like showing people that there is more there than just the latest release), and FOotMs (because I like saying it!).  Randomness occurs….well… randomly.  And Recent Items may or may not make a comeback.  My inventory likes to laugh at me when I try to do it.  But I’m open for any other suggestions of stuff you’d like to see.

And that’s it.  Basically I’ve put flat out on the table what you are getting for your….errr…money! :o)  Hope to hear from all of you!
