thank-you-from-agdollawesome

Don’t miss the end. I have something special to share with you. 😉

I can read your mind.  In your mind, you’re going, “UGGH.  Another award post.”  And you’re yawning in complete boredom.

However… This one has the potential to be something great!  You guys have been SO DARN SWEET to me, and you guys nominated us and tagged us!  Who knows, maybe I’ll tag YOU.  And then you get to learn a little bit more about the author of this blog, (moi), and more about my dollies!  Sound good?  Great, stick around, because at the end I have an announcement….

MY TAGS:

2. The inside joke tag

YAY!  I’ve been waiting to do this for so long!  Thank you Rutvi for tagging me!

What you have to do is list 5 of your inside jokes that  you have with your friends, family, or anyone else.  (because, let’s face it, everyone has an inside joke with someone.)

Then, in the comments of your blog, the first 5 people to try and guess what the inside jokes mean are AUTOMATICALLY TAGGED to do the Inside Joke Tag!

Rules: If the person guesses what the inside joke is about CORRECTLY, you must respond to their comment with the tomato emoji, or just type, ‘tomato.’

OK? LET’S DO THIS!  I LITERALLY HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS FOR MONTHS BUT JUST FORGOT THEM ALL.

  1. mr.Geese will solve the mystery
  2. Colorado Famous Chicken
  3. Uh.. My name is Caroline?!  (This one’s hard, so I’ll give you a hint, I was taking a tour with my friends at the middle school.)
  4. If you wear Jumbo Jeans you’ll never be able to support a family
  5. I eat ALL the bagels

OK!  So comment away, and if you get one of them right you’ll be nominated!

Thank you Abby!

How I started my blog

Well, this is a long one…

I have loved AG since I was 6, and I got a MyTwinn right before I turned 8.  She’s in my closet though, I don’t use her anymore, her name was Samantha Jr.

Then, when I heard that Molly was retiring, I cried because she was my favorite.  So that Christmas, I asked for Molly, but I also loved Emily and Saige.  Boy was I surprised when I got Saige 6 days after Christmas on my B-day, and both Molly AND Emily on Christmas!  That’s 3 dollies in one week!  Then, I took all my $327 in savings and bought Kit with my Mom and the AG Store on March 4th.  I was inspired by a bunch of bloggers to start an AG blog, and the rest is history!

Advice for bloggers

MAKE A SCHEDULE!

Have fun with it, of course, but it really helps you to stay organized if you have a calendar or schedule of some sort.  Fir example, I write all my posts in my planner AND calendar AND to-do list.  I’m a perfectionist though. 😛

BE YOURSELF!

Do not try to compare yourself to other bloggers.  Your blog is unique, remember that and nobody likes to read 2 blogs that are the exact same from different people.  I tried to model myself after a blogger once, and it utterly failed because I started to enjoy blogging less.  So yeah, you and your dolls are awesome just the way they are!

THANK YOU JULIA!
