Five Hundred Blogposts!


Wow! It’s hard to believe that I’ve actually made 500 blogposts since I first launched this blog last summer! I never thought I would reach this milestone this quickly. Five hundred blogposts in less than eight months is an insane pace (especially since I am doing this in the evenings and on weekends), which I doubt I can keep up. But it’s been a wonderful adventure, and great fun (well, most of the time).

Here are my top fifteen most popular blogposts on so far:

  1. Pick of the Day: Aech’s Garage, the Ready Player One Movie Experience in Sansar (January 8th, 2018)
  2. Virtual Reality Vs. Real Reality (January 2nd, 2018)
  3. Why Women Don’t Like Social VR: Interview with Jessica Outlaw (February 17th, 2018)
  4. VRChat Pick of the Day: Club Transcendia (March 11th, 2018)
  5. A Few (Second) Thoughts About the Sudden Popularity of VRChat (January 4th, 2018)
  6. The Idea of the Universal Avatar (November 28th, 2017)
  7. Second Life Versus Sansar: Why Linden Lab Can’t Win, No Matter What They Do (March 9th, 2018)
  8. Stupid Pictures Promoting Virtual Reality (October 27th, 2017)
  9. A First Look at STYLY (March 10th, 2018)
  10. Pick of the Day and Outfit Outlay: 2077 (January 6th, 2018)
  11. Sex and Gender Issues in Virtual Worlds: “The male/female dichotomy was viewed as binary and the technology (literally) codified that concept.” (November 30th, 2017)
  12. UPDATED: Comparing Sansar and High Fidelity: A Few Thoughts (August 18th, 2017)
  13. UPDATED: A First Sneak Peek at Fashion in Sansar (December 14th, 2017)
  14. My Top Fifteen Sansar Experiences (Plus One!) (November 19th, 2017)
  15. Avatar and Camera Controls for Desktop Users of Sansar (August 5th, 2017)

Of my top 15 posts, seven were about Sansar, three were about virtual reality in general, and two were about virtual worlds in general. Other topics in the top 15 were VRChat (twice), Second Life (twice), STYLY (a big surprise!), and High Fidelity (once).

The kerfuffle over “the blog incident” referred to above actually led me to rebrand the blog and broaden my focus, which turned out to be a step that brought me a much wider audience, as I covered more social VR platforms and virtual worlds. So it turned out to be a blessing in disguise!

I hope you’ll stick with me as I work towards my next goal of 1,000 blogposts. As I said, I doubt I will be able (or willing) to keep posting at my current pace, but you never know!
