Modeling is a lot of work for not a lot of linden. Yes, there are a lot of avatars looking to be models and a lot of agencies hiring or educating models. I personally have been involved in a lot of aspects of modeling including agencies, pageants, contests, etc. I've had a lot of good and bad experiences.
So why am I bringing this up? Alaska Metropolitan posted a blog post regarding her experiences running the Metro agency which she closed down awhile ago. I was not a part of the Metro models but I liked what she had to say. I agree with pretty much everything she wrote and thus I wanted to give any readers that are interested a quick link over to her blog post - click here.
