March 2022 Reader’s Choice Update

The vote was so very close. The stories were wonderful!

We did not get as many readers this time. TBH the stories were so good that this is very sad to me!

I do ask all of you, if this challenge is valuable to you, please push this challenge in “your” community. We all connect with the greater sims community in different places but the push cannot come from just a few.

The goal of this blog is to bring Simlilt out of the shadows and to bring it into the place it deserves (INMHO). This can only be done with a strong effort on all of our parts! So dear friends out there, whoever you are – submitter or reader – please help by encouraging the ones who create.

With that all said, here are your results for March 2022

Top three Reader‘s Choices:

MSSSC: Haunted Home

Novice:
