Cait or Caity, as I am called by my friends, was born in Second Life in August 2007. Those were the days of Casino’s and adfarms! After having worked in pokerpalaces, being Hostess in a Zyngo-arena and Hostess in Hard Rock clubs, I discovered the world of Katana-fighting, using the C:si Combat system.
Together with my friends Rattus and Pilar The ImperiuM Katana was founded on 9 August 2009, a school for Katana fighting and lots of fun! The clan was a succes, with its ups and downs, but to all good things comes an end…and in April 2012 the ImperiuM was put on inactive. Maybe one day we will sharpen our blades again…
After the fighting days, I dedicated my Second Life to exploring and blogging about cool places to share with you! Besides that I also like to shop for fashionable clothes and accessories, and indulging in taking ‘arty’ pictures for the fun of it, most of which you will find on my Flickr stream.
In 2014 I was honoured to be the ‘Behind the Scenes’ Reporter for the immersive and impressive theatre production ‘Paradise Lost’ by the Basilique Performing Arts Company and as such I have done a series of posts on the Basilique blog.
In addition to that I am proud to have been a guest-writer/photographer for the Fantasy Faire on their official site during the event in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.
Since November 2014 I have been a contributor on the [SL] Blogger Support site, on which I write articles on how to improve readership and audience on your blog and focus on the use of various social media platforms.
Per October 2016 I took over the ownership and general Management from founder Katya Valeska.
I have had a great time in this role and was happy to be part of the SLBS Support Team. I have learned a lot and awesome people. Alas, as things can go I had to step down as Manager/Owner of this magnificent group, mainly for Real Life reasons, per the 1st of November 2017. A decision I found hard to take – and handed the group back to Katya.
Per 1 december 2017 SL Blogger Support stopped to exist and closed its doors, all memberswere (and are) welcome to join the BVN (Blogger and Vlogger Network) to be assured of continuous support in blogging and vlogging.
Per 1 january 2019, I am proud to be the Socialmedia and Blogger Manager for Dutchie. In this role I will be responsible for the online presence on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr for Dutchie and will also be actively looking for bloggers/SL Photographers who are able to represent the Dutchie brand online. Also I am the contactperson for event organisors who are inviting Dutchie to join their event.
(Are you interested in blogging for Dutchie or are you an Event Organisor looking for Dutchie? Drop me a notecard or use the contact form on this blog, so we can see what we can do for eachother!).
In February 2019 my friend Huckleberry Hax asked me to pose for a short video clip he had in mind, and so I did. This was the beginning of a rather huge project, resulting in a full feature length movie, completely shot in Second Life – taking us 18 months to finish: STÖMOL.
STÖMOL premiered on Thursday 23 july 2020, on YouTube and with a small private event, followed by a big live screening in Second Life, in a 4 region venue, in collaboration with Linden Lab.
Huckleberry and I have been guests on Second Life’s Live Talkshow Lab Gab on 17th July 2020 to talk about STÖMOL with host Strawberry Linden.
