Since knocking together this little site and HUD system, it strikes me that something really cool is happening. I somehow feel more ‘connected’ with people. It’s a great feeling and I wonder how many other HUDslingers feel the same.
As the posts go by on bloghud.com, and also on Tao Takashi’s WorldofSL.com, from RL I can watch the news and stories of experiences or issues just keep on coming. I love it!
It’s a ‘River of Life’ – teaming with RSS. I get to connect with people who share my passion for virtual worlds, coding, creativity and innovation. Priceless.
Also, there was this magical feeling when I got my head round learning how to connect to other blogging systems – something I had avoided doing for ages – and realising what could happen here. I know I’m not alone in doing this process too, btw. There are all these SL blogs out there , where the authors have to leave SL and go to post back in RL. Surely, that must be a pain. You might lose the moment of inspiration which triggered you to post in the first place.
So, I have to say it was incredibly cool to just get more support for external blogs working. Cool because there are people out there, already posting about SL, on their own blogs, hosted on their own servers, who can now say something in SL and have it suddenly appear on their RL blog. When you try it – and you see that first post, I think you’ll see what i mean about that magical feeling! 🙂
Happy HUDslingin’! 🙂
