Yes m’dears the topic is back. Before any one asks – winners will be announced and the your views pages will be updated tonight, I’ve only just logged in on my blog since I had a really late night yesterday. Also a new Youtube video seems to be on the horizon this Saturday although I can’t say much since it’s another collaboration but I don’t think I’m actually creating any of the looks, by the sounds of it.
Well I’ve just been scouring other Stardoll blogs, looking at some spoilers – new Nail store in Starplaza will be released soon. Fingers crossed that the prices won’t be similar to those of Luxe. Get it? Fingers Crossed? I’m so lame. Well I came across another classified “Gossip Blog” and the newest post was just some screenshots of a Stardoll suite. Not just any ordinary suite, snapshots of astonishing LE collections and DKNY collections and even “Rare” Decor items. Feel my enthusiasm folks? I didn’t even know rare decor items existed.
People can post whatever they like – I’m not going to be the one that just sits here and points. You’s can all go figure out which blog/post I’m talking about.
What I see is a perfect example of what the glamorising or Rares on blogs out with the Stardoll website has done. I personally believe that Rares wouldn’t be such a big deal in our minuscule society if it were not for Stardoll blogs. When people think of Stardoll “Elites”, what do they really see? Minimalist Suites, Talented members of Stardoll, Cat fights, Thousands of Starpoints or Big collections of Rares? Basically all of the above, to be honest.
I’m sure I wouldn’t have heard about the DKNY Scuba, Skyscraper or RC Celeb Clothing if it were not for the infamous Loophole scandal that was written in several Stardoll Gossip Blogs in the early ages of 2008/2007.
The majority of Stardoll members strive to be noticed or to become famous. They seem to idolise members of Stardoll who really fit the bill of an “Elite”. Reading different styles of Stardoll blogs can really influence your perspective of different topics of Stardoll. When I first began reading Stardoll blogs, the only ones I read were Gossip blogs. There was no such blogs such as MDM. Many were just based on Fashion, Cheats and Gossip. That’s when I finally saw my chance but that’s another story. I’m sure everyone reading this will have completely different experiences.
I don’t find someone’s virtual clothing astonishing. I think it’s stupid. That’s probably because of my previous encounters although that is just my point of view.
Now the majority of you reading here will agree with me, well because you are my regular readers. If you didn’t agree with my point of view or my discussions then you probably wouldn’t be here reading this. So therefore as my readers and my views on Stardoll/Rants do I influence your thoughts and vice-versa through the comment sections? What I’m trying to say that blogs and other media projects can really influence your perspective on things. Now each one of us will have a view on Rares but I think it’s important to find out the real roots and the base of why these virtual items have become so relevant and noticeable in our Stardoll world.
I’ll only idolise someone because of their achievements and work/talent not because of their purchases and their money.
Quick post here – just wanted to get my point out there.
