As Inara Pey, I’ve been blogging about my SL times since the end of 2007. As I post rather eclectively on both D/s and Second Life in general, I’ve now split my blog up. This one deals with living in a virtual world in general. My Devices and Desires blog deals with all matters relating to D/s relationships and D/s in Second life.
Within these pages you’ll find an eclectic mix of news, reviews, commentary and opinion – all presented from my own perspective. As such you’ll find them laced with elements that are vey much part and parcel of whom I am: passion, frustration, annoyance, a sense of fun and frivolity – and very occasionally, something that might be considered thoughtful and decently presented. All I ask is that you be aware that the comments, thoughts, ideas and even frustrations expressed here are my own and should not be taken as an endorsement of any particular platform or product.
I’m quite approachable in-world, and enjoy looking at the dynamics surrounding Second Life almost as much as I like spending time in-world doing things and having fun. I’m notthat into games and stuff, but I do take time – when available – to dip my toes into other worlds as well, so you may find ramblings on other places here as well as SL.
My real life is not a totally closed book – but neither is it open for all to read; some of it will get mentioned here and there, and I hope this doesn’t detract from things.
I hope you enjoy reading this and my other blogs, and that you’ll leave any comments that come to mind!
