Just starting on learning Blender, so my Blender-Fu is strong going into making Sculpties. Hopefully in the next couple months I will start to see the fruits of my labor.
Unfortunately without a venue for selling my wares I will be eventually making I have to save up any lindens I scrape up to rent out a space and hopefully the amount of sales I make will be enough to warrant a further effort.
At one time I handled SL casually. I can see now that to really be sucessful and enjoy some of the extra bells and whistles some have, you just gotta go for it.
