“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls. The most massive characters are seared with scars.”
Blogger and Vlogger Network issued a fun challenge Swap, as they say “to get into the holiday spirit”, that consisted of being pair up with another blogger or vlogger and ‘gift’ a blogpost.
Despite I’m not so fond of the #joyful-christmassy-atmosphere-at-all-costs, I decided to apply, ’cause I really loved the idea of the blog swap and experiencing something new is always welcome. After few days, the name for me was drawn from Santa Hat and hear hear, as predictable, I had to give my blog / gift to a girl I did not know: Violet Daffordil
Now it’s really hard to talk about someone you haven’t even ever met, and although I did some research on her I didn’t get enough stuff to work on. So I gave up the idea of a real surprise and asked her to meet and have a little chat.
– Why did you decide to create an avatar on Second Life?
Violet: I saw it on a university computer and I was curious. I didn’t know what it was. At that time, I didn’t spend much time on the computer. I lived in a world of books…too much time.
Her blog, Fashion status, is a beautiful diary, full of emotion and feeling, where you can find not only fashion but stories, thoughts and information useful for Second Life and also for the “first” life.
– And why you decide to become a blogger? You do it since 2014…
Violet: Yes, it’s a large part of my time in second life..blogging. I was introduced to Strawberry Singh’s blog by a friend and I loved it. My friend at the time, took pictures and taught me how too. I shopped a lot and people asked where I bought things. Honestly, I wanted to help people find events and clothing.
– You are very capable at opening your heart as you write…
Violet: I went to school and I wrote an awful lot. I enjoy writing and I like when there’s a connection with humanity and second life. Ultimately, we’re human and things in here are often inspired by real life.
– Is your second life changed through these years?
Violet: I’ve gone through many season here. I don’t think anyone in second life ever stays the same or experiences the same thing. Just like in rl, we’re always growing and learning.
In the end the real surprise was mine: I met a deep and wise girl, able to joke happily and then move on to serious matters with the delicacy of a sensitive soul. I spent pleasant and enjoyable hours in her company, which left a sense of serenity in my heart.
But I’m not very good with words, not like her for sure. I express myself better through the images, so I decided to portray the beautiful being she is… in my style and this, maybe can be the surprise for her.
