Please Read Carefully Before Applying:
Since the launch of the Definite Second Life Fashion Feeds and its previous incarnation as the Heartbeat Fashion Feeds, it has been our mission to accept every applicant’s blog to be added to our feed. It has been only special circumstances that blogs were removed, such as no longer providing content or were of a very poor quality.
However, with nearly a thousand blogs being featured on the Definite Feeds, it created a HUGE problem whereas hundreds of blogs were generated daily and the site became near impossible to manage, with tens of thousands of posts in the database. At first the idea was to split the feed into four (when we migrated), and that worked out great for a little while, but Blogger was not designed with that kind of behaviour in mind.
We have been working for the past months to bring back the feeds into WordPress, which is so much cleaner and easier to work with, but we could not afford to go through the previous cycle of the number of posts getting out of control.
For this reason, we have taken the decision to being more selective of the blogs we feature, and we will keep their numbers under control (Currently around 200 Max). So the priority was given to Designer‘s blogs, and then to the Men‘s blogs (since they are truly a handful) and finally we will populate the rest with the best Women‘s blogs available on the grid. Since we have in our database hundreds of blogs from previous applications, we will be going through them one by one and adding them to the site.
Please bear with us whilst we complete this, and we are hoping to add more blogs to the feed as we determine the stability of the blog. Do not apply multiple times if you have already done so, if you have done it in the past, then we have you already in our database.
In the meantime, any blog that we may decide is not up to the level of what we want to display may be added to our REVISITED site on Blogger. We will add your site feed there, but we are not “managing” it as we do this site. Blogger populates the feed and posts itself and it is not something we control. To sum it up, your site is added, you can consider yourself syndicated, but we provide no “Support”.

Jan-14 2014 – Due to the fact that applications are still pouring in without applicants taking the time to read the above instructions, we have had to close the thread. It is a distressing thought to see that people are incapable of reading and following simple instruction so this is the consequence. So previously stated, anyone who applied on the 8th and after will have their application deleted.
