Kinda my job. I have been apart of IMVU since 2006 and have had the pleasure to watch it grow and mature to what it is today. I don't think I will ever completely stop developing for them, though I do take breaks more often than the average developer for life related stuffs. Here is a link to my catalog.

For those of you unfamilar to IMVU, it is an online 3D chat program. Essentially you have paper dolls (your avatar) for your computer where your paper doll can have conversations with other people's paper dolls. It is free to use, but if you want to upgrade your avatar and run out of starter credits, you'll have to poney up some doe. Yes, people actually pay money for this stuff. :P Read more at the IMVU ABOUT page.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway

As a few people have pointed out, I have a couple credits in my IMVU account. I want to do something nice with them this year. I decided the easiest way to burn through a bunch of credits is to gift products from non-pro devs to users who like free stuff. This way I will be helping out both the developers and the users! So this is what's happening. Every day starting Dec 14th to Christmas day, I will post an image of the IMVU product I will be giving away on my instagram account. The first 25 people to post their avatar name, or a friend's avatar name, will get that product. I will likely wait until the full 25 people posted before I start handing out the product so it might not happen until that evening. I tried to pick products from people with high quality catalogs, but have not yet received pro status. I also have not told these creators in advance that I will be making a rather large purchase from them, so I hope they will be slightly surprised. I hope everyone is as excited about this as I am. Christmas is almost here!

SBS 2019 Recap

Small Business Saturday was this past Saturday, Nov 30th. I followed our host, Gaf210, along with my sidekick and oldest spawn around to the different rooms in IMVU while I streamed the whole thing live on Twitch. You can check out the whole video on Twitch which is 3 1/2 or watch this condensed version which is about 23 mins. ;) I wish I could have visited a lot more rooms because there were several that I wanted to see, but unfortunately my time was short, but please enjoy the video! Next year I'll try to hit even more because I will (hopefully) be better prepared.

 

Check out Gaf's page here for images of the event plus all of the rooms involved. He visited 96 rooms! https://gaf210.imvustylez.net/sbs/

Small Business Saturday 2019

Have you heard of small business Saturday? It's the day after Black Friday where small businesses have the opportunity to shine! IMVU holds this event every year and this will be the first year that I will be participating. Why have I not done it before? Well, you see, I am terrible with time and once I realise the event is coming up, I don't have enough time to get anything done for it. This year I was reminded of a public room I already have available. So I fill that baby up with things from my shop and submitted it and here we are! Gaf210 is once again the host of this years event. so stop by his website to see all who are participating.

I will try to be around much of the day on Saturday, so stop by my public room! Everyone who stops by and says hi gets a free turkey leg! (from my catalog of course)

Twitch Live! Creating IMVU content.

It's that time of year again! Every Wednesday around 4pm Central time I fire up my webcam and 3DS Max and create live for all to see. I am free to answer questions and give tips to those of you learning how to create. This is the second year I have done this and last year was a huge success! Last year we build a snow globe together and affectionately called it The Fellowship of the Snow Globe. All who tagged along got the product for free as well as a nifty snow globe badge. 

This year we have chosen to make a music box similar to the one from the movie Anastasia. Only instead of the dancing pair, there will be a ballerina pose in the center.

 

Also, as someone was so kind to point out, I have an overabundace of credits. This year when our fellowship is complete, I will award one random winner 5000 credits after we upload the finished product and take our group photos. Everyone involved will still get the product as well as the badge. This particular product might be an easy project so look out for a possible 2nd fellowship before Christmas.

A big Thank You to Gaf210 for his continued support as well as Jazzkat and  JimmieRose ! You guys make this fun!
