Blogs and blogging have become very important recently to Second Life.
I've seen groups and "clothes" shops giving away samples to bloggers for them to review the items. One good blog that post item reviews such as SLFashionJournal.com said that they get some of their items from such groups. CutsyPixies get her items as well from shops in exchange of a review.
So... do you blog?
If you do, prepare for next weeks' 1,000 Linden Dollar contest here at SLlindens.com
