First of all fame needs a name, and in SL it's easy. Things to remember.
DON'T put stupid numbers in your name. Anyone remember Rebecca1976 Bergman? No.
DON'T, for the love of god, call yourself after anyone already famous. That's just silly.
DO make it memorable, being a household name is easier if people can remember it.
Place's to be seen and not to be seen.
Do hang around in pricey classy shops. Better yet, if the owner of the shop is there, strike up a conversation, tell them briefly (make sure no one is around) that you adore their stuff.

With that in mind DO start a blog, or better still. Join someone elses already well established blog.
DO things for charidee, not only do you get a warm snuggly feeling but you will instantly appear generous in the eyes of your public (WARNING: Do not give to charity after a scandal. It will make you appear fickle)
DO keep your old friends, you never know what secrets they may divulge, however dropping them can be useful for creating press if neccessary.
Stick to these guidelines and within weeks you shall find yourself laughing it up with the A-list and being bitched about on the forums.
