Today is a sad day in the blogging and vlogging world. Katya Valeska, the founder and owner of Second Life Blogger Support (SLBS) has announced its closure on December 1, 2017. SLBS has been a staple in the blogging and vlogging world for many years, providing exceptional guidance, support, and the first large-scale community forum. It is always hard to say goodbye to an old friend, but people get busy and RL must take priority. Thank you to all the contributors and members of SLBS for making it the staple it has been for many years.
When Katya approached us with her plan for SLBS, she was looking for a home for the bloggers, vloggers, and contributors so that she did not just close her landmark group and provide no clear direction for a supportive environment. We are honored that Katya chose BVN as the new home for her many followers. At BVN, we strive to provide bloggers and vloggers with the most pertinent, up-to-date, and interactive information available. The website offers recorded tutorials, blogging and vlogging opportunities, helpful hints and tricks, windlight downloads, and a list of rezzable sims to get that perfect shot. In-world, we host live seminars, games, contests, get-togethers, and are very excited to introduce BVuNiveristy as another resource for honing your skills. BVN also offers a free sandbox to group-members only, so feel free to use that to set up a shot at any time.
The good news is that this will not be the last you have seen of Katya or her incredible team of contributors! Katya has taken on a special advisory role within BVN and will be helping us with her deep knowledge and years of experience. We would also like to welcome Asthenia Pinazzo, Ember Adored, Lucie Bluebird, and Lainey Thorne to the BVN team as moderators. We are developing some new, special features on BVN that this incredible team will help to support.
We would like to welcome the new SLBS members with open arms. Please feel free to get acquainted with us through our in-world group and on our discord channel. BVN does not have an application process; all are welcome to join, regardless of experience. Feel free to follow our wide array of social media outlets by clicking the icons on the upper-right hand side of our homepage.
Welcome to BVN!
~Kess, Trouble, Del, and the rest of the BVN family
