Challenges and other news

So, just to break the silence a bit here is a relatively short post.

Avatar Blogger Month

This is a cool challenge that I found about while visiting the blog Ravalation. It was started by Vanessa Blaylock of iRez and the idea is basically for avatars who blog to write 30 posts in 30 days throughout June. If the idea sounds interesting to you but you feel like it is already too late to join, don't worry. It is just something for fun so if you feel like joining now you can do so and just make the posts throughout the rest of the month. Or just extend it a bit beyond it if you feel like doing so. šŸ™‚

For more information you can check this page. On this other page you can find a list of all the participants.

Myself I was going to participate but then I had a bad case of foul mood and now I just don't feel like I would make any good posts for it. Instead I am thinking of doing something else for the remainder of the month...

The Sims 3 - Immortal Dinasty Challenge

Another expansion for the Sims 3 will be released very soon. As usual there is already a pre-patch that adds some of the upcoming functionality to the game. While waiting for my usual mods to update IĀ  decided to take on a challenge: The Immortal Dinasty!

The basic gist of this challenge is to create a brand new Sim who then will have to complete a series of requisites before they are allowed to eat ambrosia thus gaining immortality! After that the Sims' firstborn must also complete a series of requisites to earn their immortality. This goes on until the 8th generation.

Before this postĀ  I had a very short lived attempt at it so I am not going totally clueless. With that attempt I made some accidental right things as well as a couple of fatal mistakes that prematurely ended it. Still I don't know if this new attempt will suceed or not. In any case I hope it makes for some interesting blog posts at least. šŸ™‚

Other news

I finally enabled the option to receive blog posts via e-mail. You can find that option in the sidebar to your right. Still looking for a good option to do theĀ  same for comments though!

I am pondering about what to do as far as update notifications goes in Twitter though. So far I have been using my personal twitter account for it but since I barely use it I just would feel bad to spam people with blog post notifications. The only reason I just didn't do one just for the blog yet is due to silly cosmetic concerns of mine and Twitter's character limitations even for names! This will teach me to give pompous, long names for my creations!

Anyway, I will keep looking at these issues and let you people know when I come with a satisfactory solution.

Now, to finish this post off, I leave you with this!

I enabled updates by e-mail for anyone who would like to receive the blog posts that way. You can subscribe to it via the sidebar to your right. I haven't found a similar option that I like for the comments yet but I am looking into it. Same thing with twitter but in this case it is more due to stumbling on some silly cosmetical issues. I blame it on Twitter character limits and my penchant for big, pompous names. I could use my personal twitter for it but I use it so little that it would easily turn into spam forĀ  the blog which I'd rather avoid. We'll see! - See more at: http://shardsofimagination.com/content/avatar-blogging-month-and-other-news#overlay-context=
