HELLO, Pixel Pioneers & Virtual Virtuosos!
AmyNevilly's Gold Rush blog about writing blogs suggests that you write a lot of information and then make your pitch at the end of your blog. She has very helpful advice in this article, which I am following with glee, so I suspect she knows just what she is talking about. However, as the founder, owner and Governess of Cherry18 (est. 2006) I am going to do it a little differently this time just for fun.
At Cherry18 Girls School we teach by example, and I think the best way to provide meaningful information is to describe exactly what we have been doing that makes our sim so fun and fruitful! Nothing does that better than our annual newsletter. So here are a few fun snippets to give some idea of who we are and what we do ... and who we do! If you like what you see please join us anytime - we are open 24/7 and traffic comes and goes in waves...
Cherry18 Girls School Mission Statement:
From Rabelais: Do what thou Wilt!
Our own: Merry , merry, take a cherry!
Cherry18 Culture and Image
We are an Adult community so you have to be 18+ to visit. We value integrity and objectivity, manners and friendliness, and a professional and casual atmosphere. The ladies @ Cherry18 are known as the cutest and sweetest in SL! The Cherry girls love Chat, Voice and Cam. It is a family from a global community that plays SL as a game for FUN!
We at Cherry18 have the experience of over seven years in this business. We have seen literally hundreds - maybe thousands - of other clubs come and go. Cherry18 is a place of prestige and possibility.

Cherry18 DEPARTMENTS and BUDGET 2014
We are choosing a program to track the Cherry18 Budget for better transparency and better spending decisions. Every department will help determine its budget and the distributions will be finalized by Lolita.
Accounting & Finance
We have established the mentor system @ Cherry18, as a pyramid shaped network of Cherries, from the most senior Cherry girl to the newest trainee. This organization allows us to define staff positions and pass on responsibilities to experienced proteges. We know that Cherries each have their favorites on staff that they talk to, and we just want to be sure that EVERY cherry has ONE on staff they can always go to, and who occasionally checks in with her.
WWW.CHERRY18.NET is being created and will be fully operational in 2014!!! It has great forums, profiles of the Cherries, virtual tours of Lolita Park Sim and all our secret nooks and crannies, and many more features you will not want to miss!
Advertising is a big part of our marketing campaign. We advertise on several fronts and in 2014 our marketing will include:.
Group notices and IM shout-outs
Our PG Parcel in Yongchon is our outreach to the PG world in SL! (www.secondlife.com)
SL Destination Guide
In-world club advertising
In-world media and publications; magazines
SL advertising networks/ ad agencies
Do you know who translated all of our material from English to serve our growing international community?
To those who volunteer precious time and labor to the cause of Cherry18, we all offer our sincerest thanks:
Alizee Latour translating for French speakers
Sophie Parnas translating for Dutch speakers
Monyka Barrett (monyka.nishi) translating for Spanish speakers.
Our German translator has gone missing so the position is open!
OUR OTHER GROUPS:
So that is a quick peek at Cherry18! There is sooooo much more to learn that it is hard to decide just what to include here and what to leave out. We are a sisterhood, a family, a community, and we welcome anyone who can get along with others. We have many languages and people from all over the world. We are college students, tech geeks, CEOs, bankers, farmers, nurses, lawyers (but dont let that turn you off!), laborers, teachers, bums, poets, schemers, dreamers and screamers and we all are different. Come and be yourself. Find what you are looking for here.
Thank you for joining us @ Cherry18 GIRLS SCHOOL!!! and being a part of our community!
