The other day I was at a pizza restaurant, mindlessly staring at the maximum occupancy: 160 sign. Today, I looked back on that moment and realized something absolutely CRAZY: All of my followers wouldn’t fit in that pizza restaurant!

You guys, I CANNOT thank you enough. When I started this blog I had NO IDEA how much it would grow – 200 followers seemed like a distant dream I could never achieve. I remember how happy I was when I got my first follower – you can only imagine how happy I am now!

Of course, blogging isn’t about followers at all. I used to get jealous of other blogs, thinking, I’ve had my blog longer than them but they have a lot more followers than me. I’ve definitely improved on that, and it seemed like when I stopped obsessing over follower counts and paid attention to creating and reading awesome content, my follow count started growing!

The least I can do to thank you guys besides this rambling ‘speech’ is finally post flashback.! I really, really wanted to get this up by Christmas, but due to several complications, I wasn’t able to. I’ve been working on it even harder for the past few days, and I just finished the final product today!

Without further ado… flashback: a christmas agsm movie!

Destiny Phillips hasn’t been herself ever since her diabetes diagnosis last year. When the anniversary of her sickness rolls around, Christmas isn’t what it used to be. With the help of Present & Future, can Destiny become herself again?

I’m so, so excited you guys can finally see this! I’ve been working on it all December, and I think I’ve filmed & edited for about thirty hours in total. Make sure to tell me what you think (and if you recognized some of Destiny’s backstory from this post)!

Also, one more fun thing: I’ve been on YouTube for 1 year and 1 day! I started it on the last day of 2017. Even though I don’t upload as consistently as I do on the blog, or have very many subscribers, I still love making videos and I’m so grateful to have my channel! Kaylyn’s live videos have also helped me connect with other AGTubers, which is so cool! You can check out the AGW YouTube channel here!

Here’s to an awesome 2019! I have so many great things planned for AGW this year, and I can’t wait for y’all to see them. Here’s to an awesome year!

Two Years {Flashback Trailer}

Two years ago today, a girl finally mustered up the courage to ask her parents for a blog.

The girl had been reading an American Girl Doll blog called Doll Stories and immediately fell in love with blogging. She would make fake YouTube videos with her dolls and friends but never uploaded them to anything. Maybe if I had a blog, she thought, I could share my creativity with the world.

When her mom replied with a “Sure,” the girl raced to her iPad and set up a Blogger blog under her dad’s Google account. For whatever reason, she decided to call herself the very random username of “Pheonix” (Phoenix even being spelled wrong.)

When her dad got home from work, he was a bit upset that his Google account and full name were now on the Internet for everyone to see, so he helped the girl set up her own Google account and her own blog.

But because the girl didn’t have a Google tablet, she wasn’t able to easily post photos. So, the girl’s dad researched blogging platforms, and found WordPress! The girl’s Blogger username, Pheonix, was already taken, so she chose the even random-er username “EmeraldPheonix”.

And since that first post, her blog has continued to grow. She eventually learned how to spell phoenix and gave herself the nickname of Emmie (short for EMeraldPhoenix). She met so many awesome friends, expressed herself, got the premium plan and a new domain, discovered a love for writing and photography, and started two other blogs.

In case you couldn’t tell, ‘the girl’ is me. Thank you all for an amazing two years. ❤

The Trailer

In honor of my 2-year blogaversiary, I created the trailer for my AGSM movie, Flashback! If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting much other than the Emmie awards, it’s because I’ve been filming nonstop to get this AGSM movie done!

Are you excited for Flashback? I know I am! I’ve been working really hard on it, and I’m a little scared I won’t be able to finish it before Christmas. And even if I don’t, I’ll get it up by the end of the year, so stay tuned!


Are you looking forward to Flashback: A Christmas AGSM Movie? Can you believe it’s already been two years? Did you watch the trailer? What did you think?

Love you guys! Thanks for following along this amazing journey!
