This is probably the second last post about the Livin’ It up Blogger Challenge. If you haven’t been following along these three posts will help you along. At first I introduced you to the Livin’ It Up game and invited you to join along.
The response wasn’t that great and I felt really lonely in my neighbourhood so the pot was sweetened by me saying I’d give away the iPad (when I win) to one of the people I’ve invited. Now that I had friendly neighbours I could gift plants to, the game started heating up. Badges were introduced allowing you to earn virtual money for renovating your home, landscaping your garden or tuning your car. Always update your insurance while you upgrade as a smash and grab or even an alien abduction could cause you to loose property.
After amassing all the badges and doing every possible upgrade I found myself between a rock(statue) and a hard(concrete) place. Nowhere to go and without any more virtual currency to afford the changes needed to win the blogger challenge I did an analysis of the game, doubting wether it was sustainable or not, and decided to start from scratch.
I couldn’t have picked a worse time to start over though as there are so many things happening in my work, academic, business & personal life that need all my attention over the next few days. I’ll only be able to log in daily but not really grow my home until Thursday leaving me only 3 days to catch up to the current leader, One Large Prawn before the blogger challenge end on the 24th!
