going on a kind of hiatus??

Hey marshmallows!

I’m looking at the calendar for April, and I’m totally overwhelmed. I’ve got school, Camp NaNoWriMo, dance, a ton of birthdays, holidays, events, trips, and a huge gala I’m being an ambassador for.

I thought, How on Earth am I going to do all that AND have time to upload a video and post a blog post every week?!

I decided I needed to cut back…but I love blogging and making videos so much! I was torn. What should I do?

But then, I thought…What if I didn’t take a full-on blogging/YouTube break? What if I just went on…a consistency break?

Basically, for the month of April, I’m taking a break from posting every Monday and uploading every Friday. But! When I have the time and energy to create a blog post or a YouTube video, I’ll post!

So this means you’ll still be seeing posts from me: just not every single Monday or every single Friday.

Are you gonna miss me? 😛 Just kidding! Head on over to the AGW YouTube channel to watch the video version of this post. Thanks for supporting me in my blogging journey. Love you!

Doing the Star Wars Character Tag…WITH MY DOLLS! (And Chewy, and Popcorn, and Me)

Hey guys! So I’ve seen the Star Wars Character Tag around the blogosphere…and it looks really really fun! I love Star Wars!

But the thing is, I don’t have enough characters for this or a blog that fits a niche that would relate to this tag*. So I decided, why not steal this tag and do it with my dolls?! I mean, there are no rules, right? (Which reminds me, I need to put the rules.)

*Well technically there’s The Realm of Writing/Write Away but WE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF THAT CRINGEY TRASH DUMP OF A BLOG.

1. THERE ARE NO RULES.

2. Refer To Number 1.

3. There is one absolute rule: You MUST use your own characters (OCs) for this tag. (Brownie points if you add pictures of your characters.)

4. The Sorta Rule: Scream a huge thank you to whoever tagged you for this whilst treating them to a pizza dinner at your favorite pizza chain.

5. The Kinda Rule: Include This Link In The Post So That The Penny Can Read Everyone’s Answers To This Smol Strange Tag: https://asouthernbellewithstoriestotell.wordpress.com/2019/02/18/the-star-wars-character-tag-i-made-my-own-tag-halp/

6. The Rule That’s Not Really A Rule But It Would Be Great: Include the graphic and tag at least three Jedi or Sith Lords.

I sound like a YouTuber everytime I say this, but…let’s get started!

Who’s Your Obi Wan Kenobi? (sassy, a great mentor, but can be a bit strict)

Let’s just pretend I haven’t used this picture super recently

This one SCREAMS Alexandra! Even though she’s not the oldest, she was one of my first dolls so she’s kind of like the mom who is mature, gives great advice, and can be kind of strict. But she also has a sassy, fun side: she’s a singer, author, and hairstylist, and loves creative stuff, witty comebacks, and generally having fun.

Who’s Your Leia Organa? (feisty, incredible comebacks, and does their own thing)

Definitely Jade! Have you SEEN Forever Season 1? Almost every single one of her lines in that (very cringey but an AGW classic) series is her being rebellious, sassy, or fiesty! She’s definitely Leia! (Ooooh, space buns would look good on her…)

Who’s Your Finn? (overeager, adorable, a cinnamon roll)

I know that Charlie is technically my sister’s doll, but he is definitely Finn! Seriously, his personality is so adorable and overeager. (You should’ve seen him when Z said she would go to a school dance with him!) How perfect is that? Oh, and not only is he a cinnamon roll, he loves eating them too. (It’s his favorite food.)

Who’s Your Padmé? (kind, loving, but also kick butt)

The lighting is a little weird in this one…

Probably Felicity! She’s so kind, compassionate, loving to everyone around her. She’s really shy, but when she wants to speak up her words are fiesty and blow everyone’s mind. She’s always thinking, sitting back and watching, observing everything around her.

Who’s Your Count Dooku? (deliciously evil, extra, and sick burns)

Okay this was REALLY HARD. Because none of my dolls are really EVIL or anything?!* So I just picked Logan, because he does have awesome burns and is pretty extra sometimes.

*That’s why this tag was meant for characters.

Who’s Your BB-8? (too cute, everyone loves them, can do no wrong)

Yes, I am aware that there are two. Yes, I am aware that these are not dolls. Yes, I am aware that just Popcorn here would make more since cause he’s an AG Dog. But Chewy AND Popcorn are the dynamic duo, and they fit this description PERFECTLY!!

(Also, this description is perfect for a baby unicorn in my first book ever named Steve, who liked to swing invisible nun chucks and could talk. Don’t ask.)

Who’s Your Yoda? (underestimated, extra, and wise)

Since Alexandra was already decided as Obi Wan Kanobi, I picked Z Crew News* star Ziana! She actually gives great advice and is so wise and mature. She’s been through a lot! She even has an advice segment on her channel. (Ooh, what if I did an advice segment thingy on ZCN? Thoughts?)

*What is it with me self-promoting referencing AGW series today? And what’s with the footnotes? I don’t know? *is confusing myself*

Who’s Your Anakin Skywalker? (bratty, rebellious, whiny)

THIS WAS EASY. I was wondering why Maryellen wasn’t showing up here yet, but that was because Anakin hadn’t been mentioned so far. She’s totally perfect for this, except for the whole turned-into-crazy-villain-psycopath thing. And the weird helmet and theme song and heavy breathing…so basically she’s Anakin Skywalker BEFORE Darth Vader, because she’s such a rebel, prankster, whiner, and can be bratty sometimes!

Who’s Your Luke Skywalker? (hero, has been through a lot, has their share of flaws)

THIS IS TOO EASY! Definitely Paris. I’ve learned a LOT about her character from her being the protagonist in the book I’m outlining (aka Trying for the Sky), and she definitely has a lot of flaws (has trouble prioritizing, can ignore her friends sometimes, gets easily upset, too competitive) has been through a ton (immunity disorder, insecurity, moving, worry), and a hero (saves the day, sacrifices, and fixes things in the end)!

And now…for the grand finale…

Who’s Your C3-PO? (always worrying, gives depressing information, constantly wailing)

YES. I PUT ME HERE. I KNOW I’m not a doll…but in the AGW world and all of the photostories and stopmotions and videos and stories, I’m the one calling them about something that happened? Delivering backstory? Worrying about new dolls fitting in?* Weird I put myself here, I know**. But there is no AGW Doll who fits this description, and I’m like perfect for this? TRUST ME, I’m not this depressing in real life, haha. And I never wail.

*I just discovered I’m a lazy plot device I throw into my own doll stories. Huh.

I had so much fun writing this, even though it’s a little weird, lol. So now…let’s see who’s been tagged for this awesomeness!

I tag…YOU!

Yes, I know, doing that is kind of lazy and no one actually does it. BUT! In my defense, I’m not sure which of you guys like Star Wars, minus those who already did this tag! So if you enjoy Star Wars, dolls, or write, then please do this tag (it’s a great post idea!) but don’t feel like you have to!

To continue the theme of YouTube intro and outro… 😛

That’s it! Thank you so much for reading. If you enjoyed, please make sure to click that like button and follow this blog by clicking the blue WordPress button in the sidebar! See you on Friday for an All My Dolls video on the AGW YouTube channel! Bye guys!

Okay that sounded so much like a YouTuber’s outro, it’s actually kind of scary. I guess technically I am a YouTuber…

Hey guys! I have some super exciting news (that you can already tell from the title but I’m going to tell you anyway):
MIXIEPIXIE7 IS HOSTING A MEETUP AT MY LOCAL AG STORE, AND I’M GOING!!!
Originally, when I asked my mom about it, she just said “probably”. Which everyone knows ranks high on the Mom-o-Meter of responses.

But just today, I asked her again for confirmation, and she said YES!!!!!!
In case you live under a rock (or just don’t subscribe to AGTubers), Micah/Mixiepixie7 is a YouTuber who is super famous in the AGTube world and creates phenomenal stopmotions and videos! 
This photo is from Micah’s Channel, so it’s not mine!
HERE IS THE LINK TO HER CHANNEL, WHERE YOU CAN FIND A VIDEO EXPLAINING DETAILS ABOUT THE MEETUP AND ALL OF HER OTHER AWESOME CONTENT!
I’m a huge fan of her channel and I’m LITERALLY SO EXCITED to get to meet her!!!! Ahhhh I just want it to be March 10 already. And my friend might get to come with me! 
So, of course, all of my dolls want to come too. But only one will be able to come with me! I’ve narrowed it down to my Top 3 options, and I have no idea which one to take!

So, I thought, why not let you guys decide?
I let each of the dolls put together a little “campaign”, where they will have a photo, short bio, why they want to go, and reasons to pick them! You guys will vote in the comments! The deadline is March 8, 2019, so you have until Friday to cast your vote!

What Doll Should Meet Mixiepixie7? | Vote Now!

Hey guys! I have some super exciting news (that you can already tell from the title but I’m going to tell you anyway):

Mixiepixie7 is hosting a meetup at my local AG Store, and I’m going!!!

Originally, when I asked my mom about it, she just said “probably”. Which everyone knows ranks high on the Mom-o-Meter of responses.

But just today, I asked her again for confirmation, and she said YES!!!!!!

In case you live under a rock (or just don’t subscribe to AGTubers), Micah/Mixiepixie7 is a YouTuber who is super famous in the AGTube world and creates phenomenal stopmotions and videos!

This photo is from Micah’s Channel, so it’s not mine!

Here is the link to her channel, where you can find a video explaining details about the meetup and all of her other awesome content!

I’m a huge fan of her channel and I’m LITERALLY SO EXCITED to get to meet her!!!! Ahhhh I just want it to be March 10 already. And my friend might get to come with me!

So, of course, all of my dolls want to come too. But only one will be able to come with me! I’ve narrowed it down to my Top 3 options, and I have no idea which one to take!

So, I thought, why not let you guys decide?

I let each of the dolls put together a little “campaign”, where they will have a photo, short bio, why they want to go, and reasons to pick them! You guys will vote in the comments! The deadline is March 8, 2019, so you have until Friday to cast your vote!

Bio: Hi, I’m Paris Kay Elliot! I love basketball and journalism, and recently, I’ve gotten into acting! I starred in AGW’s Christmas movie Flashback and I’m going to co-star in Forever Season 2! (Yes, there is going to be a Season 2! If you vote for me, maybe I’ll give you some hints! 😉) I’m the main character in Emmie’s book, Trying for the Sky, (previously titled Paris Takes the Shot), and I’m the newest doll.

Why I want to go: I’ve always LOVED Mixiepixie7’s videos and I would absolutely love to meet her and take my first trip to the American Girl Store (not counting the time I was bought!) It would be awesome to interview her. She works with incredibly talented doll actresses all the time. And I’m hoping that she’ll bring Sophie Claire and Cassie, because I’d love to meet hem too!

Why you should vote for me: If you vote for me, there might be a new stop motion starring me! And I’ve never been to the AG Store besides getting bought, and I’m the newest doll.

Bio: Hey, everyone! I’m Alexandra Kate Blakely, a writer, singer, and ballerina! I look so much like Sophie Claire, I could be her twin sister! I played roles in Forever Season 1 as well as in Flashback and various videos and photo stories, plus I’m a character in TFTS. I have T1D, just like Emmie!

Why I want to go: I would love to meet my twin Sophie Claire if Micah brings her, and I love Micah’s videos and I’ve been watching them for as long as I can remember! Going to the AG Store is one of my favorite things to do, ever!

Why you should vote for me: If you vote for me, there will be a short story written by me and a photo shoot posted on this blog! Plus, you’ll get the CUTEST pics of me and Sophie Claire!

Bio: What’s up, guys? I’m Ziana Joy Yang, but you can call me Z. You probably recognize me as the host of the popular Z Crew News series and from my YouTube Channel, Z Crew, that has over 100,000 subscribers! I love filmmaking, dogs, photography, and art. I co-starred in Forever Season 1, and I’m going to star in Forever Season 2 as well! I also played the doctor in Flashback, and I’ve produced, directed, edited, and starred tons of videos for AGW’s channel, including Isabel and Lea React to Blaire Wilson!

Why I want to go: I absolutely love filmmaking and YouTube videos, so meeting Micah would be a dream come true for me! I’ve watched her channel since I was fostered and then came to the AGW family and it’s been amazing to see her channel grow. I would do an awesome interview with her, because I love journalism and I have a lot of practice from ZCN!

Why you should vote for me: If you vote for me, there will be a NEW ZCN EPISODE! And, the vlog we will take at the meetup will be directed and edited by me, and you’ll get a photo shoot of me, too! And, there

That’s it for the campaign bios! (Is that even a thing? Oh well, now it is.) Now it’s your turn! Who will get to go to the AG Store on Sunday, March 10? Only YOU can decide by commenting below your vote by March 8!

Happy Valentine’s Day From Popcorn! (A Mini Photostory) + A Poll!

Hi, everyone! Are you surprised to see me here? Well, Emmie really wanted to do an awesome gigantic photo-story, but unfortunately she got sick and couldn’t do it! So I swooped in to the rescue and made this little post for you guys!

I hope you all have an absolutely fantastic V-Day (as I like to call it)! Also, do you like this little flower setup I did? It’s not much, but when your owner kept coughing into the roses, you have to make do. 😉

SELFIE TIME!!!! Do you like chocolate for Valentine’s day? If so, what kind? RUSSEL STOVER IS THE BEST. But since I’m a dog I can’t exactly eat chocolate, but from what I’ve heard from Emmie and her dolls IT’S AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! And I want it! *whimpers*

There’s gonna be a ZCN soon, so watch out for that! So, make sure to comment down below the link to your Valentine’s post for a chance to be featured in the episode! Oh, look’s like Chewy wants the camera – here you go Chewy!

“WHAT ON EARTH IS THIS THINGY?” It’s a camera, Chewy! “Oh. What’s a camera?” Just let Emmie take your picture!

*Poses dramatically and thoughtfully, hair blowing in the breeze* *Is thinking about bacon* Happy Valentine’s Day, guys! May it be full of lots of chocolate and bacon! But not together, that would be gross. Lemme rephrase that: May your day be full of bacon for dinner/breakfast/lunch and chocolate for dessert!

So, I’m wondering something: What are your favorite posts to see? So I can give you guys, my readers, the content you want to see, I created a poll to help me decide what to post more and see what you like!

CLICK HERE FOR THE POLL!

Thanks for reading, guys! Don’t forget to comment the link to your Valentine’s posts, and we just might be back Wednesday for an awesome photostory!
