Babychampagne Sass's Symposium of Fashionista is an SL fashion and interior design blog that's one of the Top Ten Second Life blogs nominated by NWN readers, and it's really great. Created by Babychampagne Sass, it's full of fantastic layouts like this, artfully arranged and photographed, and dramatic, gorgeously composed, dynamically lit fashion spreads like this one. If you don't follow Ms. Sass's symposium, I agree with my readers that you really should.
If she was to ask me (and I know she didn't), I might suggest a few things that'd likely improve Symposium of Fashionista for readers, while attracting many more of them:
- The blog automatically starts playing a song when it loads, a feature that many readers find intrusive (or if they're reading it in the office, like many do) embarrassing. Music might be better as an opt-in option.
- Many of the interior design posts don't have SLurl or Marketplace links for readers to immediately buy items featured in the Symposium, which is bound to frustrate some readers. The more links, the better!
- To attract more readers, it's a good idea to label all posts (and for that matter, the blog's name itself) with some variation of "SL", "Second Life", and "virtual fashion". That way, it'll be much easier for SLers and others who like virtual fashion to find the blog during Google searches.
