EOTB: "Valentine’s Day in Second Life"

In the official Second Life blog this week, Linden Lab had a Valentine's Day themed entry, highlighting several topics. Among them, the Isle of View. 

The Isle of View is our annual tribute to all-things-romantic via four regions filled with forested walks, cozy nooks for cuddling, and romantic swan boat rides.

Visit one of the Love Pavilion gift kiosks to browse through a variety of gift selections that you can send to your friends and loved ones on Valentine’s Day. This year’s selection includes heart lollipops and balloons, an adorable teddy bear, a chocolate box with rings, cutesy cupcakes, love lanterns, and, of course, romantic roses. To select and send your free gifts, follow the directions on the sign adjacent to the kiosk. 

What are you waiting for? The Isle of View is now open

And they mentioned Linden Lab's event at the Isle, the "Hug-A-Linden/Dunk-A-Linden" event.

Are you feeling “some kind of way” about the Lindens? Show your love (or friendly aggression) for the makers of Second Life at our annual Dunk-A-Linden & Hug-A-Linden Event, held this year on February 12th from 1pm to 3pm PT. Come early or watch the live stream on our YouTube channel for some fun conversations and plenty of soaked Lindens!  

Also mentioned was the Valentine's Day-themed "Shop and Hop" that starts in a few days.

Ready to shop? Share the love and bring your friends to get big discounts and free gifts from over 160 of your favorite Second Life Merchants at the Valentine’s edition of our Shop & Hop event, held Feb. 5-17. This year’s event spans 8 regions filled with exclusive items you won’t want to miss!

Look out for a detailed blog post coming up on Friday at 9am PT (when the doors for Shop & Hop officially open) with a full list of participating Merchants accompanied by direct links to each store.

In the meantime, browse in advance the vendor and blogger pics being submitted to the Second Life Shop & Hop Flickr photo pool for this upcoming event.

The Lab also announced the addition of new items to their Second Life merchandise store:  mugs, masks, tote bags, and more with a teddy bear holding a heart with the Linden symbol. 

This stuffed bear is emblematic of the warm connections so many Residents find in SL. Give yourself a positive reminder that love comes in many forms with a coffee mug to start your day, or a pin on your backpack. Our furry friend will be available on a variety of custom accessories for a limited time, so hop over to our official merchandise store today.

By all means, Linden Lab isn't the only one planning something special for Valentine's Day in Second Life. And in the Destination Guide, they're featuring a list of several locations, one that will grow as people add to it (after some delays, it's been fixed so people can add to it again).

Finally, we have dusted off our Valentine’s Day Destination Guide category, too! You’ll find a few romantic Valentine’s-themed destinations in there already - so grab a loved one and go on a romantic date or just some friendly exploration.

The Destination Guide Suggestion Form is now working, so make sure to submit your Valentine’s-themed destination soon!
