Being and Doing:

Have you ever thought about the difference between being and doing? One time someone accused me of being a merchant. I thought it was odd because I've never thought of myself that way. Selling virtual items is just something I do and not something that I am.

Blogging is something else I do, but not something I identify with. I've never introduced myself to someone and said "hi, I'm a blogger."

I guess at some point, when you spend enough time doing something, you began to use that activity to identify yourself. From the amount of time that I've spent in SL I should introduce myself as an avatar.
