Hi, everyone! You guys asked some amazing questions last Thursday when I revealed that I had reached my 50th post. Today I will be answering all of your questions. And remember, even if you didn’t get the memo that I’m doing a Q&A, feel free to ask me questions in the comments, or you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through my contact page. 🙂
Without further ado, to the questions!
The Blog Dolly’s Questions:
Q: What made you want to start blogging?
A: Well, I first started blogging way back in 2014. I had to start a blog for my journalism class as one of my assignments. That was the last journalism class I ever went to, because it was a few days before we moved back up to Alaska. (Notice how I said “back?”) Anyway, I stil started my blog, which was a fictional story about a girl who traveled to twelve countries in one year. It actually took me two and a half years to write, though. It is one of my biggest accomplishments. When that blog was finished, I still wanted to have a blog, so I debated over what kind of blog I should start. I was going to do a pet blog, but Loren from Happy House of AG inspired me to start a doll blog instead! It kind of reignited my love for AG dolls.
Q: Who was your first subscriber?
Q: And what post did you get your first subscriber on (i.e. First post, second post, third post)?
A: My fifth post.
Emma – Dazzling Dollies’s Questions:
Q: What would your dream custom look like?
I would make her out of #24 with an English Toffee wig from Beautifully Custom.
Q: Who is your biggest inspiration when it comes to blogging?

A: The outfit Morgan is wearing here.
Q: What is your favorite outfit that you have sewn for your AG dolls?
A: This outfit.
Q: Have you ever gone to the AG store? (If you did describe it).
A: Yes, I have been to the AG Place in Los Angeles three times. It was AMAZING! The store is in this outdoor mall called The Grove, which you can find movie stars occassionally. (I was too young to know about any movie stars, but chances are there probably was one there when we went.) When you walk in, there’s a display of dolls and cute outfits, and further into the store is the hair salon, where you can get your doll’s hair done! Crystal had hers done in braids. Upstairs is practically a gallery of dolls; each one has a little “room” with their collection inside. There’s GOTY stuff up there too, and Bitty Baby. Here’s a picture of the first floor:
This is the only picture we have of the AG store that my face is not in. 😦

A: Nope, no Etsy shop. I don’t even know how those things work. (Someone please help!)
Q: What are you wearing right now?
A: A blue REI shirt that’s super soft and is actually made for camping, but I’m wearing it because it’s November in Alaska, and while it’s not snowy yet, it’s COLD!!! Also, I’m wearing American Eagle jeans with a brown belt.
Q: What did you eat for breakfast?
A: I haven’t had breakfast yet . . . I should go do that. I’m starving.

In the meantime, my BFF moved to the other end of the Lower 48 as well, but the summer we moved back she came for a visit. Halfway through her visit, her parents told her she was moving back to Alaska! It was a surprise for both of us, and we were ecstatic!

A: Read. Write. Blog. Repeat.
AG Doll Dreams’ Questions:
Q: If you could buy any AG doll, current or retired, who would it be?
A: TrulyMe #24. She’s gorgeous.
Q: Who is your favorite AG pet?
A: I really like Bonbon and Chocolate Chip. But the dalmation is pretty cute too.
Q: What is your opinion on Logan?
A: I DO NOT LIKE that AG has a boy doll. I feel like the words American “Girl” doll have been compromised. I just doesn’t sit well with me. I think they should have stuck to girl dolls.
Q: Big dogs or little dogs?
A: Little dogs are easier to snuggle with, but big dogs generally don’t bark as much. At least, in my experience, they don’t.
Q: Beach or mountains for vacation?
Sophia!! :)’s Questions:
Q: Beforever/Historical or GOTY?
A: This is a really hard question. I loved the GOTYs up until this year, so I’ll have to go with them. But Samantha is GORGEOUS.
Q: Limo or Race car?
A: Definitely limo!
Q: What is nurses run backwards?
A: Nurses run . . . oh, that’s funny! 🙂
Q: Favorite AG Mini?
A: Tenney is pretty cute. Also Kit.
Q: Favorite ice cream flavor?
A: French Vanilla all the way. Did you know that was Thomas Jefferson’s favorite flavor, too?
Q: What’s your favorite thing about your blog? (I.E. your design, your header, your posting schedule)
A: My favorite thing about the actual blog is the color scheme, but my favorite thing about having a blog is the comments. I LOVE your comments, guys. I get SUPER excited when I see them in my notifications bar and my email account. I smile every time I read them. 🙂
Q: What is your favorite YouTube channel?
A: For AGTube, that would be Mixiepixie7. For humans, that would be Studio C. (Who here likes Studio C???)
Q: How did you discover AG dolls?
A: The memories are foggy. I think my great-aunt got me a catalog and I found the website and played lots of games on it. 🙂
Q: What is the next doll that you want?
A: I would like #24. Or Tenney.

A: Willa is totally adorbs. 🙂
Q: Who is your favorite GOTY?
A: Grace, but McKenna is a close second.

A: I like bleeding hearts. I know that’s a flower, sorry. But if you want me to name a plant plant, I like those cacti that have the bright red bulbs on top.
Q: Do you like dragonflies?
A: They’re pretty cool. I think they’re a bit frightening when they’re buzzing around your head, but they’re cool.
Q: If you could be any plant or animal, (other than a human being) what would you be?
A: I think it would be cool to be a dog. I wouldn’t have so much schoolwork – none, actually! 🙂
Q: What is your favorite planet?
A: Saturn. 🙂
Q: Do you have a favorite constellation? If so, which one?
