bbc43-dsc08688It’s been forever.

I don’t know what to post, guys, I know that’s not an excuse for abandoning you for the last 2 months, but I really don’t. I want to focus on life and on my other blog for right now. I won’t say how often I’ll be posting, but I’m not waving goodbye just yet.

AG, We Want You Back.

Do you know what a breakup feels like?

I don’t.

But I’m starting to get an idea.

So many of us in the AGBC are “breaking up” with American Girl.

AG is trying so, so hard to make their products more “modernized”.

And I really, truly, hate it.

I do.

Here’s a list of things they are changing:

-sewn on underwear

-squishy vinyl

-selling them at Toys R Us, Kohls, etc.

-awful packaging

-new dolls that don’t even look like they’re from AG.

So, AG, you caused this breakup. And if you want us back, make your company go back to how it was. Because right now, I’m not an American Girl Fan.

In fact, I would’ve stopped loving them a long time ago, if it wasn’t for buying Brooke. I’d wanted her for so long that I just couldn’t resist, so… I bought her, and that revived my interest in AG. But now it’s dying again. I have zero motivation to play with my dolls, and I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting old or whatever, but I know that I don’t want to be a fan of them right now.

To be honest, this started when I saw the new mini dolls. They. Are. Creepy. And it hasn’t gotten better.

And if you’re thinking, “Maybe it’s for the best, maybe some people will like the changes they’re making…”

Stop.

Just stop.

And think it over.

Because, if YOU picked up an AG catalog for the very first time TODAY, and you saw all these dolls with curved hands and squishy vinyl and sewn-on undies, would you be first in line to buy one? Or would you not even be in line at all?

Exactly.

OK, Christmas is over people, it’s official.

And in the world of the AG fandom, we’re officially excited for the GOTY, the GOTY release on January 1st, and the sales, Sales, SALES!

I’m going out on a limb here and guessing you’re going to the AG store sometime soon, most likely in 2017.

I’ve been to the AG Place a few times, and when it is really, Really, REALLY Crowded, it can get stressful, and you can even get anxious to leave!  

And that should never, ever happen.  The AG store is an American girl fan’s DREAM!

So I thought about some tips and hacks to make you and you doll’s experience at the AG store a great one!

So let’s just get right into this post!

Before you go, you should…

Before you go to the AG store, it’s a great idea to have a plan.  I mean…

Guest Post: Too Young to Write?

I know I JUST posted something, but this post was too good to NOT reblog. I knew I had to do it “write” away. 😛 Okay, I’ll stop with the puns! Now read this post.

Reveries

Hello guys! Today we’re having another guest post. It was written by Miss Libby Beth, who … I just met. I mean, I feel like I just met her, but I kinda know her from YWP NaNoWriMo.

At least, I think I do … but I keep getting people mixed up. I even mix up ‘famous’ NaNo folks. I suppose that’s because I’m not on there often enough anymore to know who’s ‘famous’!? XD

Anyway, you can find her blog (The Author with an Allergy) here. Be sure to check it out for more posts like this one.

{Oh, and I added some comments in … just like this! Sorry, Libby. I’ll remove them if you want!}
