Because SL bloggers seem to prefer ‘last minute signups’ ArminasX and me are postponing - with a few hours - the final closing of the subscriptions for the 1st SL Bloggers Mix’n Match to Sunday 2nd of November 1AM SLT. So if you have a Second Life related blog, now is the moment to sign it up! We have 47 subscriptions up to know, including Katt & Torley Linden and ‘their’ blog.secondlife.com. (Gratz on the great lobbying, Mr. ArminasX, they both turned me down! ;))
