Inspire Challenge – Or where I get really mushy.

When I think about doing the Inspire blogger challenge from posted by Harlow Heslop last week I realize that I can’t just single out one person. Many of you inspire me in different ways whether you know it or not. I’m going to do ten. If you are not here it doesnt mean that I don’t love you but instead of doing just one person I want to kick it up a notch and share the love.

You inspire me in many ways every day whether you know it or not. You will probably hate that I wrote about you but you know that I love you. You are a huge chunk of my SL. When you asked me to blog with you on Coffeesmoke almost two years ago.. I thought “Yeah, right, Me? A blogger? No way.” But really it was just what I needed in SL. In a lot of ways blogging on Coffeesmoke was probably one of the best things that happened to me in SL because that is how I got close to you Marls. In the beginning I asked you for so many tips and advice and you were always so patient with me showing me things and you have always inspired me with just the way that you are. You are so strong and such a beautiful person. You’ve taught me so much and never doubt that your friendship is a gift to me.

The SLuicide Girls.
You all inspire me. When I first saw the blog hit the feed I knew that was something that I wanted to be a part of. I feel part of a family with you girls, less alone. You are all so different and unique and smart and wise and just so wonderful. Yes, I’m talking about all of you. You all have a special place in my heart. I love you all more than I can say and I am so glad to have been welcomed to the blog.

I love the way that you take your photos. You have become one of my best friends here and our talks inspire me and your photos inspire me to want to become a better blogger.

Your blog is amazing, your style is jaw dropping. Your photos are alive, real and exciting. Your writing is top notch and you are so smart and funny too! You inspire me to want to be a better bloger. You are awesome.

You are a beautiful person. I don’t know you as well as I’d like to but I admire you for so many different reasons. The way that you put together your posts are so crisp and professional. You are a class act, for sure.

I’ve been dazzled by your style for quite some time. I wont get all gushy and fan girl about it but I think that you have some of the best photos and styling on the grid.

You inspire me because you are so kind. Your blog seems so fresh and brimming with energy and life. You have this power behind you that is inspiring and motivational. You make people want to take notice and do something!

I love the way that you put together your photos and I love your honesty. I like how you don’t take shit from anyone and give your opinion no matter what. I admire you and I love looking at your blog.

Casja and Gidge
Your friendship inspires me. Having you both on plurk has been wonderful. You both are so different but seem so well matched on your blog. Your posts sometimes touch me and I think that your friendship is beautiful. You are both so talented and lovely.

New on my radar is Chance. He has a blog that I just love. His styling is so nice and unique and he seems to be one of the most friendly people that I’ve met in SL for a long time and he has a lovely lady named Gabby in his life and his romantic spirit inspires me.

In closing,
I’m glad to be a part of this community of bloggers. I’m proud to call some of you friends and happy to admire the rest of you.


  1. You’re so fuckin’ talented, my love. Thank you for the kind words and I am so happy that you’ve turned coffeesmoke into a forum for you to really bloom. You are a great friend, confident and like-minded weirdo. Thank god we found each other!

    *tackle hugs you*

  2. Sylvia you made me tear up. I was laid up in bed all day and did not see this post until now. I am honored and you are quite the inspiration yourself. Thank you from the bottom of my spicy Cajun heart. 🙂
