Today at 10am SLT Linden Lab will be revealing the brand new 5th theme for Linden Homes as part of the Home & Garden Expo 2020. The Reveal region near the American Cancer Society Island will open up to the public. Yay.
The LH themes so far are traditional, trailers, houseboats and more recently Victorian homes. It will be most interesting to view the new theme.
At 11am SLT today tune into Lab Gab episode 15 featuring Patch Linden and the Moles. Find out more about the new Linden Homes and SL17B preparations.
For more details about the new 5th LH theme see below…
“We are always grateful for our relationship with Linden Lab and are honored to host the Themed Home Reveals,” says Stingray9798 Raymaker, American Cancer Society staff Director in Second Life. “We hope to use this opportunity as a way to educate the residents of Second Life that the American Cancer Society is here to help cancer patients and caregivers from around the world, and to give our Second Life community a means to fight back against a disease that has taken too much.”
This marks the 5th Linden Home theme that will be added to the Bellisseria community, alongside the previous 4 themes: traditional, trailers, houseboats, and Victorian. Residents of Bellisserria are sharing theories with one another in the Bellisserria forum and a queue of avatars has been sighted on the American Cancer Society island.
Lab Gab Episode 5 airs today from 3pm SLT/PDT over on the official Second Life YouTube channel hosted by Xiola Linden and Strawberry Linden. They will be exploring some “de-frightful spots” around Second Life and sharing top Halloween themed things with some scary stories.
Here is the full blog announcement on episode 5…
Scary movie rules state that no matter what – there must always be a sequel! Xiola and Strawberry are back this week for another chilling and thrilling episode of Lab Gab – with more frightening fun and spirited excitement!
We have some de-frightful spots to explore and need your help to make sure we survive the trials of our adventures in – The Spooky Side of Second Life Returns!
We’ll also be sharing some of our top Halloween themed things and scary stories – there’s a ghost story in there somewhere!
We might need to take a trip to a lovely autumnal experience after the bone-chilling venture – good thing there are so many scenic spots for us to lighten the mood and recover after our journey into maniacal madness.
The big news from Epsiode 3 is that the launch of the new SL Blogger Network (SLBN) will either be announced later on today (26th September) or tomorrow on Friday 27th September on the official Second Life blog. Details will be released on the requirements needed to join SLBN along with terms and conditions. This will be one centralised place where everyone can find SL bloggers.
Kess Crystal talked about the history of the blogger network and ways they help bloggers connect with the Second Life community. Sounds very interesting indeed and this is a great opportunity for all bloggers to reach a wider audience.
> This will be a Opt-In
> Basically It’s going to be a feed, where bloggers can sign up and the lab will put your blog on a list. Hopefully there will be categories for the different types of blogs etc.
> The lab have said they will take the first couple of sentences of the blog post and the image. People can then click through to the full blog post. Content will be on Second Life social platforms. Phrase 1 starts this week.
Are you a Second Life blogger looking to expand your reach to a wider audience? You’ll want to consider joining the new Second Life Blogger Network (SLBN). This new initiative will promote high-quality independent blog content to the Second Life community.
