I was passed the URL to Fabulously Free in SL in 2010 when I was fairly new to Second Life by a friend that noticed my enthusiasm for SL bargain shopping, and after that it became my daily ritual to check the new posts from Renee Lowenhart, Whisper Swansong and Farah Palmer before I logged on to locate the items they had blogged that day.  I didn’t need any men’s items, but always enjoyed reading Carson Caiben’s goofy posts too.  I was over the moon excited when I was chosen to be a part of the Fab Team and blog along side them in 2011.  Now…  half a decade later I am still committed to and enjoy blogging my fabulous finds for our readers and look forward to do so for many years to come.
What do I enjoy the most about blogging for FabFree?  I am not sure I can pin it down to just one thing, but it is a relaxing creative outlet for me.
Love’s Random Fact: Loves milk chocolate and the colour blue.

I don’t recall a specific instance that introduced me to Fabulously Free in SL. What I do remember is being a completely clueless and utterly broke when I first started Second Life. (The utterly broke part is still true!) This prompted me to try and find ways of looking the way I wanted to without having to spend very much linden. I’m fairly certain a fated Google search led me to the Fablously Free in SL website and I was instantly hooked. It became more than just part of my routine to check the blog, I was inspired. Fab Free and the writers at the time showed me that there was an entire world of fashion and creativity to experience and explore without spending a fortune. Then in 2013 as a seasoned Second Life resident but an utterly inexperienced blogger, Love Trill took a chance on me and the rest as they say is history. Of all my personal experiences in Second Life, my involvement in Fab Free has been the most lasting, and the most rewarding.

What do I enjoy most about blogging? I enjoy sharing the items I find, I get genuinely excited. I also enjoy the creative process of putting items together and taking photos.

Back when I was a still-wet-behind-the-ears newbie, someone passed me the link to the Fabulously Free in SL website, and I’ve been a loyal reader ever since.  My days start with sipping a cup of coffee, opening up the Fab Free blog, and reading all the latest posts.
Putting together outfits on a budget, while still looking spectacular, is my #1 past-time on SL.  Inspired by the Fab Free writers, I began long ago to take pictures, and upload them to my flickr account.  Boy, have my photography skills improved!  I shudder when I look back at my first photographs!  I began posting the details of my outfits on flickr, but longed to do more.  I really enjoy writing, and when I saw the best blog *ever* was looking for writers, I jumped at the chance to apply.  The day I found out I was chosen to join Fab Free, I think my cats must have thought I was a little crazy as I whooped around, and did a happy dance.
From the early days of my childhood, it has been a family tradition to tell stories, so in my blog posts, I decided to combine sharing my “Fabulous Finds” with tales of my adventures with my pup, Ripley.  I hope you enjoy reading them, because besides helping others find fabulous outfits, creating my stories is my favorite part of blogging for Fab Free.
Kat’s Random Fact:  My sidekick Ripley is based on my real-life dog.

For those who don’t know me, I’m Carson, FabFree’s oldest vintage blogger. I was originally hired By Renee Lowenhart in March of 2010 as the male blogger for FabFree, writing alongside Renee,  Whisper Swansong , and Farah Palmer. I also remember helping pick an upstart blogger in 2011 named Love Trill.  I spent over two years writing over 1000 posts about free and cheap finds in Second Life before I retired from blogging and SL in 2012. I returned to Second Life in October 2016 and found myself once again seeking out fabulous male freebies. I’ll be sharing my finds with you once or twice a week (Who am I kidding, I post way too often) and tell a few of my goofy stories along the way.

I joined Second Life in 2010 at the request of a colleague who was organizing a real-life business group in-world. Not satisfied with the “new avatar” look, I eventually discovered the Marketplace and began searching for free and inexpensive items to spruce up my look. Not long afterwards, I found the Fab Free blog while surfing the ‘net one day and have been a regular reader ever since. An amateur photographer in real life, I quickly developed a fascination with Second Life photography, and in December 2012, I applied to write for Fab Free. I blogged alongside Love and Pru (and various others) for 2.5 years before taking a break. I’m happy to be back with the amazing Fab Free Team, and with YOU, the fabulous readers!
What do I enjoy most about blogging for Fab Free? Well, I really like creating scenes and new looks, as well as enhancing my photography techniques. But my favorite thing is being part of the Fab Free family.  🙂

 

Serena’s Random Fact:  I’m a blonde in real life, but Serena always “felt like” a redhead to me. Oh, and my favorite color is pink, and I have 2 little dogs (yes, only 2).

I remember being introduced to the FabFree blog by a friend perhaps five or six years ago. Since then, I have been a loyal follower… finding bargains and freebies and creating styles for myself from the various posts that inspired me most. I remember often wishing I had time to apply but my Second Life and Real Life were both very busy and I didn’t think I could make the commitment. In June of 2015, my life shifted a bit and blogger applications were open. I had free time and I really wanted to be a part of the team. I remember being thrilled at the chance to be a part of the blogger process. The best part of blogging for FabFree for me is that it offers me a not only a chance to help other residents find great bargains, but also that it is a wonderful creative outlet.
Astrid’s Random Fact: I love good coffee and early morning walks with my Service Dog.
