About The Torch: Entertainment Guide
The Torch Entertainment Guide (also known as The Torch SL Guide), was created in 2011 by Chris C & Kennie M. It began as a Second Life based teaching blog, showing new Second Life users an in depth look into “Life” within this virtual world. We explained what users did, how it was done and why it was done, doing our best to enlighten them about the weird yet fascinating user created world they now found themselves a part of. In Mid 2012 we began to write about more Real Life stories,such as music, technology, videos games and literature using Second Life as well as other social media as a platform for promotion, building awareness for a product, person or interest. In 2013 we have continued to do so and have partnered ourselves with among others Online Radio Station Audio Nation.
