At first, I included some of the business in a box freebies, since I didn't know any better, but quickly learned the difference between quality store freebies and business in a box freebies. My freebie collection journey continued alone until I was joined by Lorri (now showing as Sarah) more than a year later. We were joined by Claire, then Savvy. Claire returned to school and Havi joined us for several months, and there have been a few others along the way, but Savvy carried the bulk of the blog for most of this year, while I got busy with my inworld modeling career and agency management.
Hunting freebies on the grid these days can be a full-time job, and there are many other blogs doing a far better job of it than Virtual Freebies has been lately, as Savvy and I both became increasingly busy, and it's been difficult to find people to join us and carry on what was started 2-1/2 years ago.
Virtual Freebies has 43 loyal followers on blogspot, some on BlogCatalog, and even more on Bloglines. We've had 168,264 page views as of today, and there are 609 posts on this blog. It's been a fabulous run, and I've met some incredible people, designers and hunters alike, for which I'll be forever grateful.
But, with a great deal of sadness, I must announce that we've come to the end of the road. I'm allowing the virtualfreebiesblog.com domain lapse in January. I'm going to leave Virtual Freebies open at its blogspot address (http://virtual-freebies.blogspot.com) for historical purposes, and for whatever use people can get from it. Our sister blog, Virtual Fashionista, will remain open, although my posting to it will be sporadic, I'm sure.
Savvy and I want to thank all of you who have followed us. It's meant a lot, and your faithfulness kept us going at times when we just were't sure we could continue. Big hugs to all of you.
I could ramble more, but I'll close with - see you on the grid! Happy lives to all of you :)

MUA by Djinn & Tonic is being released TODAY at .44 Caliber's mainstore.
As part of the release, there is a free skin in the store as well as ways to win more free stuff!
There are 11 different prizes to be won, including some fat packs.
- 5 winners will be chosen from the in-world Djinn & Tonic group. Search "Djinn & Tonic" if you have a group slot left. (There is a one-time membership fee of 250L).
- 5 winners will be chosen from the subscribo group. Click the kiosk here.
- 1 skin set will be given to one of Glance Magazine's members as well! (To qualify you have to not only be in Glance's group but you also have to be in the Djinn & Tonic group in world.)
The skins are absolutely gorgeous. Makeup colors include, Apple, Pomegranate, Deadly Nightshade, Hazel, Pumpkin, Fern, Broom, Sage, Mandrake & Mint. All these "ingredients" are used in Wiccan rituals, giving the skins a dark, mysterious feel.
Skins come in 3 tones, pale, natural & sun-kissed. The highlights and shading on the skin are very natural, and not over done. Bravo!
Skin packs generously include 20 skins! Each skin is sold by brow/shadow color and comes with (5) amazing lipstick shades, a freckle, and no pubic hair variation for a mere 1500L giving you value for your hard earned money.
My personality allows me to wear the more, dare I say, outrageous make up, so for me, the heavy shadow & the prominent lips are win! Let me know what you think!
Shown above I am wearing the Brunette Brown option. From left to right, shadow colors are as follows: Apple [Sun-kissed], Broom [Sun-kissed] & the gift skin [Natural].
There are 1500 skins with this release when you consider all the options available. This has been quite an undertaking!
Congratulations & kudos to Babyhoney Bailey her first skin release. I am officially hooked!
Be sure to stop by the store and try on these demos! They are wonderful, and I am confident that you will love how they "fit" on you too!
