From Identity Circus to Digital Playground
This blog began as a place to play around with ideas springing from active participation in avatar-based experience. Over the years it somehow transformed from the spontaneous and exuberant joy of a playground into the demanding grind of a deadline-driven responsibility. The main insight I gleaned from my month off is that I want to lighten up, have more fun and just post as the Muse moves me.
I also realized that although this blog began as an exploration of virtual identity, that territory is now pretty well charted for me. It's time to move on. Not by walking away from the Botgirl identity, but by continuing to open up the door to a wider range of expression here.
In honor of that shift, I decided to change the name. Again. The last name change (Botgirl's Second Life Diary to Botgirl's Identity Circus) reflected an expansion from Second Life to the larger universe of virtual identity. This time, the shift is from virtual identity to digital creativity. The new name is Botgirl's Digital Playground.
It's good to be back!
