First of all, welcome to Second Life, congratulations on getting your account and taking your first confusing steps into this confusing as all hell virtual world. Now you are here? What do you do first? Some Residents of SL would say that nothing really interesting happens until you reach 30 days old, but that isn’t true. It is true that you can’t really do anything until you are 30 days, like apply for jobs but we’ll get to that when we get to the living in Second Life bit of this walk through. You can do anything you want before you reach your 30 days in SL and Linden Labs, the creators of Second Life, have happily done something to help newcomers find their way.
I always tell newcomers that the best way to experience SL in their first few weeks is to explore the places in the destination guid. Back to Linden Labs making the kind of easier for new residents to explore the world.
Seven places as soon as your land in world, introducing you to Seven part of Second Life.
Second Life is ripe with culture and very creative people, one of ways residents show their creativity is through art. If you are interested in seeing the amazing creations of Second Life’s Art community go through that Portal.
Second Life’s roleplaying community is large, with several different kinds of sims dedicated to Roleplaying. From Lovercraftian Horror to Medieval Fantasy to Futuristic Cyber, if you are interested in checking out Second Life’s Roleplaying Go through the portal.

These two Portals lead you to popular hotspots as well as social communities, great places to hang out and meet other Second Life residents. Go through the portals to meet new people and make friends.

Finally a portal that leads to the seedy side of Second Life, the adult sims.
Exploring Second Life will allow you to see and experience every part of Second Life before you finally decide on what you’re interested in doing, but what happens when you don’t have found that special thing and you’ve reached 30 days? Well how about we answer a few questions that we are always asked here at The Torch. About things that happen in every day Second Life, beginning with ‘How do I get a job in Second Life?’
