ღ About this Blog ღ
Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Lizzy Austen in Second Life. I like to explore SL searching for new and fun things to see. I love learning new things and writing about them in this blog. This blog has evolved over time. In 2015, I started this blog as a way to fulfill a goal my therapist had set for me. The goal was to go out and find new things that I like to do in an effort to rediscover who I am as a woman and person.
ღ How it began ღ
You see, I was getting out of a five-year toxic relationship with someone who stripped away all of my boundaries and essentially abandoned me halfway through. I stayed too long in the relationship, which was toxic and damaging my soul and mood. So much so, that by the end, those around me, both real world and SL family, were worried for my life. I was drowning in a spiral and wouldn’t stop spiraling until I left the situation and started a new life. I went through five years of no boundaries, a life of isolation, and no thoughts of my own. Therapy helped pull me out of it and one of the goals I listed was to rediscover “me” again.
ღ Evolution of a Blog ღ
In the beginning, this blog was an exploring blog. One where I just wrote about different places I visited. I didn’t even do my pictures well. I just took snapshots here and there and wrote about the sims I visited. Then one day my friend, Tirza, asked me what I was wearing and where I got it. After that, I started posting my credits of what I was wearing to my posts. I didn’t do much to my pictures because I was still learning so didn’t know much on how to create credits and so on. I basically listed the name of the store and the outfit…no hyperlinks in the beginning…just a basic list. LOL
Over time, my blog has evolved from exploring SL and what I like to including fashion and those likes too. Then it evolved to writing tutorials for things like RLV and how to adjust your shape, to unboxing videos on YouTube; even joke videos that I did for a friend. Now, it includes fashion, décor, home, and gardening or landscaping topics, tutorials and videos. This blog has a little bit of everything! If I can learn from something, it probably will end up on my blog. With each blog post, you can see a little bit of “me.” It is a journey of self-discovery, fun and more…
