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!

Make sure to click here to like the video and subscribe to the AGW YouTube channel and click that notification bell so you never miss a video!

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!

Now, for a photo for the bonus challenge, which is Sparkly!

I hope you enjoyed this random and fairly short post! Speaking of random…

In Which My Dog Reacts to AG Stuff…

As you can tell from the title, this is going to be quite the interesting post. XD

So I tried my best to get the lighting just right, put up most of the choking hazards, and then let Chewy roam! (Right now the dollhouse is in-progress of the two-story update, so the hallway is FILLED with doll things!)

I’ll let Chewy take it from here!
