If you have a Facebook account, head there and take a look at this photo.  I’m not totally sure that this was done in Second Life or by a Resident, but it’s just too fantastic with its colors and its sense of motion.  The artist is named Debbi Lombardo; and I hope you’ll click Like on this one when you get there.  A thumbnail:

Pin Me!

In the eternal quest for Domination of the Blogosphere, Around the Grid offers a variety of share buttons at the bottom of each article that will place the piece on some of the many social networks available, from Twitter to Google+, to That Which Shall Not Be Named (but it’s big and blue and people spend more time playing Farmville and Cafe World than reading entries).  And now, I’ve included a button for the new kid on the block, Pinterest.  Starting today, it’s easy to pin any of my articles up on one of your Pinterest boards, even if you don’t use the bookmarklet thoughtfully provided by the company itself.  You get to show off your interest in Around the Grid, and I get a little ego-boo and free publicity.

Pin away, people.  I’ll love you for it.  I’ll even kiss you for it.

New Facebook Page

In light of Facebook’s recent increase in deletion of Second Life avatar accounts, I’ve taken the precaution of putting up a page connected to this blog.  All my readers are welcome to go to it and click the Like button.  Though I will say that I’m rather ambivalent about the whole thing.  Facebook is always proclaiming it values a user’s privacy, but then swinging around and doing something that compromises that privacy to varying extents.  This is one reason I refuse to link any of my Second Life activities to my RL persona — I prefer to keep the two separate and compartmentalized as much as possible.

Still, Facebook is a method of free advertising for this blog and my photographic work.  For someone with no advertising budget, you can’t beat free….  (sigh)

Alternatively, you can friend me on 2ndhub, which has become very popular as an alternative to Facebook — just not as famous (grin).  You can also find an updated SLurl on 2ndhub to my store location, if you’d like to buy any of my art prints or original photographs.

Finally on Facebook

I’m finally yielding to the trends, and I’ve reactivated my old Facebook account.  It’s primarily another way to announce blog articles and various other things; beyond that, don’t expect any world-revealing information about me on my Wall or profile page.  I’m always suspicious of Facebook (with some justification, based on news articles over the past year or two), and I don’t even reveal much about myself on my RL Facebook page — which I maintain only to keep in touch with my old schoolmates from Way Back.  (I will say that my 35th high-school reunion is next year.)

If you’re interested, I think I have the page set open enough that you can see some of my stuff publicly.  I won’t be accepting legions of friends right off just because I’m getting the thing going.  Of course, those I do know and respect as friends in world are welcome to let me know that they’re on Facebook as well (grin).
