New Babbage Welcome Box & Beginner SL Help

Since i have a few friends who after reading this blog & talking to me, now want to see this wondrous place of New Babbage, Caledon, Silent's Folly and Second Life...
here's a helpful box of FREE items that can be found in New Babbage Square!
Found Here:

(pray note, kind reader: the SLURL won't work if you don't belong already to Second Life)

What is Second Life?
somehow you stumbled across my blog somehow or want to know more....the BEST visual representation of the beauty of Second Life made by Oolon Sputnik
(might as well get used to the funky names of! LOL)

No One Likes Being a Newbie!

It just feels icky~ you feel stoopid, you don't want to stick out and you want to be in the know (fast!) and cool!....and SL does take a committment of wandering to IMHO
the most impt. thing to get used to SL is to just on your own at your own speed...spend time wandering in SL after going through orientation you wander you learn! find free clothes... walk, look, learn, explore and discover...get comfortable! it doesn't happen in one visit....or two...but once it "clicks" for you i think you will love it! i paid for most everything i have...i have a few free things...but i set up my paypal right away and bought linden dollars so i could go shopping!

To help you get started in SL...i couldn't begin to list here all the sites out there to help the new traveler to the in-world lands... but here are a few suggestions:
"You can learn Second Life in a fun and fast fashion! The enthusiastic Torley is your host, taking you on a tour through tips, tricks, and techniques that'll increase your confidence and make you smile. :) Whether you're a newcomer or longtime Resident, your inworld experience will benefit from these video tutorials."SL Bloggers
i'm not an official one (yet) but there are MANY who are~ and i've learned SO much from them!
check out the Ning started by Zoe Connolly called Second Life Bloggers.... not to join (yet!) but to find the links to those that are blogging on topics that are important to you. maybe if i keep up this blog (yeah, see how many posts i did since it was started 2 years ago!) eep~ i'll join SL bloggers until are a few....of a gagillion!
as i said, i could go on and on and on..... an advanced google search with terms like "second life" and your interests or queries will narrow your search....but each AVA must learn on their own first then have people in-world who are "mentors" and happy to answer silly questions.
i am one of those people...
