SLers, got a cool event you wanna promote? Tweet the main details + time/day/SLurl/blog/YouTube/etc. link at me & I'll RT!— Wagner James Au (@slhamlet) May 17, 2016
Nice note from a fellow named Fred to come back to after a short holiday:
I like your blog or I'd not been around for so long. Keep it up. Keep politics out (or neutral) and the gamergate thing which I've not seen anything on lately, which is a good thing as it was a big divider amongst readers.
What I think would be interesting to read would be art, music and performances in SL. There is a lot of that happening, perhaps a interview series? We absolutely rely on your take on press releases from LL and different interviews by key LL people.
To the last couple points, I'd definitely like to do more interviews with great content creators. Far as events, please Tweet those at me @SLHamlet. I rarely blog about in-world Second Life events because generally, just a few dozen readers can attend -- plus a Tweet is also much easier for others to share. This is going to become even more the case when we start seeing High Fidelity and then Project Sansar-based events happening more often. (And as other readers have mentioned, we're also seeing a relative uptick of activity in OpenSim.)
I can't retweet all virtual world events, so here's some hints on making the Tweet more likely to get shared (by me and others):
- Include the official Twitter handle of the world (i.e. @secondlife) in the Tweet, in hopes whoever runs the account also retweets/favorites your tweet.
- Include a blog post/Flickr/YouTube link related to the event -- that helps convince me and others that this is a cool event worth promoting, and for the majority who can't come, spurs them to catch the next related event!
And as always, also feel free to post about upcoming events in the appropriate blog post -- like this one!
