This is Ravalation being read by an avatar on a threadmill in Second Life. I'll have to infiltrate Second Life one of these days to find out what that means. Picture by Vaneeesa Blaylock.
Inspired by the NBI, Vaneeesa from iRez is organizing an Avatar Blogger Challenge in June. Yes that's right, that's now! So what's going on?
From iRez, June is Avatar Blogger Month!:
Any Avatar Blogger who blogs about their adventures in 1 or more virtual worlds. Any worlds. Gaming worlds. Building worlds. All that matters is that your avatar is the blogger.
30 posts in 30 days. It’s easier than it sounds! Don’t think you’re writing the great novel! Just a simple post a day. A short post. A photo post. Any post. 30 posts in 30 days.
I said to Van that it was a great idea, but I was still thinking about a format for my own participation. And then I unexpectedly ended up in the hospital for a week and now we're already way into June. But there was a surprise when I came back home: Van had secretly put my name on the participation list! Thus came to be that I was totally ninja'd into the Avatar Blogger Month.
Here are the 26 participants of the Avatar Blogger Month, who's avatars will all write one post a day. I'll update the list when needed. There are some late comers, so you can still join if you want. If you do, leave a comment to Vaneeesa here.

So, this was my last post of this month. From now on, I give this diary to my avatar Ravanel, who's name I've borrowed for such a long time now as a blogger. She's free to do with it what she wants. Pretty scary, I have no idea about what's going to happen. Promise me to be nice to Ravanel!
P.S. All posts related to the Avatar Blogger Challenge will be labeled "ABC" here on Ravalation. The number states which issue it is and will go up to 30 for each post in the challenge.
P.P.S. All pictures of this post are shamelessly stolen from iRez and produced by Vaneeesa Blaylock.
