A few weeks ago, my friend Melanie suggested that I should set a date and challenge myself (and other Second Life residents) to delete their entire inventory. We have too many old things. Dated things. Things we didn’t even open or wear. And in my case, too many (nice) things in general. The date to delete my entire inventory would be by January 1st, 2014, that’s just two days from now!!
I’m a wuss. I’m really nervous about it, and I want to do it cos I also can’t bear with the thought of possibly deleting something I might need or worst of all, something I might miss. I’ve blogged since 2007, my inventory could be ~300K like a few bloggers that I know, but it’s not, it’s under control. Currently I have ~76K. I’m doing okay with that number, and I don’t have anything older than 2011 (or 2010) in my inventory. But still, even things older than a year old, I simply don’t want to keep anymore, cos I know I’ve probably blogged them too many times already (or won’t ever wear again).
My biggest reason for wanting to do this challenge, is a fresh start. I want my blog to feature the latest, newest, etc., I really shouldn’t keep digging back into my inventory and wearing things that are a year or older. This will also help me showcase NEW designers, and NEWER releases, if I’m not falling back into my comfort zones of “old favorites.”
There are some things I won’t ever be able to delete, so Melanie and I came up with a way to cheat. We’ll have a list of things (let’s say it’s 10) that will survive the purge. For example, for me that is my Pink Fuel skin folder, my shape, my lashes, my body parts, my ao, those are my essentials. The rest? Not that attached. I might miss them, but they’re all replaceable. That’s the point of this challenge, to replace old favorites, with new favorites and showcase NEW things.
Do you think I should go through with this challenge? Will you join me? Is this crazy? Let me know, Second Life!!!
