Wow. I seriously can’t believe it’s been one year. Time goes by so fast! I remember¬†my first like and follower was Kaitlyn and my first comment was from my very nice Aunt. I would’ve never guessed that I’d be where I am now.¬†I’ve grown so much and have found out my hidden talents and passions that I would’ve never thought of, if it wasn’t for blogging. I used to hate writing but now I want to write a book. I used to think photography was ok but now I want a camera and am considering that being my career. I didn’t used to know a thing about graphic design but now I know a ton and am also considering that being my career. My computer skills in general have greatly¬†improved too. When I first started, Rae asked me for¬†the link¬†for this blog and I was like “How do you do that?”

I would say my faith has grown as well. I mean I’ve stood up for my beliefs a couple times and I’ve lost people who I thought were my friends. But because of that I found real friends ūüôā¬†¬†So, here’s a big shout out to the following: Rae, Abby, Doll dimensions(Grace), Kayla, and Skye!¬†I really appreciate all of¬†your comments, emails, and Skype calls! Now, since I’ve said my peace let’s get on to the winner!

Congratulations! I hope you have fun with Kamille! And if you don’t I’ll probably get a letter from her in the mail!ūüėā No, I’m kidding. Kamille is a sweet and¬†loving doll. I blame myself for her self centered and mean attitude.

She’s also pretty! The contrast of her striking blue eyes and long black hair are unique! It’ll be a little weird to see her go but I know if I would’ve kept her I’d be preventing her from a girl who really loves her!
Thanks for reading this post!

The Holocaust Center by a Special Guest!

Hiya! I’m Ember Taylor but can call me Emby. Welcome to Emby Making a Difference(EMAD)!¬†I went to a Texas, Holocaust center a couple weeks ago and took tons of pictures! I even met a¬†Holocaust survivor! Cool, huh? Since Friday was¬†Holocaust Remembrance Day I got this idea to start a blog so that people will never forget what happened to the Jewish people. Well, what are we waiting for? Let’s see the pictures!

Hey, Guys! It’s me, Kiki(and Kiki means me! :D)! The day I posted about Ember(Jan 11) was actually the day I went to the Holocaust center and that was my inspiration for her story! Well, I was going to post the holocaust pictures but then I got this awesome idea to¬†make it look like she’s posting on her blog! This might actually be a series! Comment down below if you’d like to see more of Emby posts!

Konnichiwa, Again! Anyway, I got nominated for Blogger Recognition Award(5 times!) Thank you, Abby, Liv, JoT, Faith, Julia! So, Lets get started!

THE RULES!

Thank the nominator! And give a link to their blog or blogs

  • Write a post about this award
  • Give a short bit about how/why your started your website
  • Give some advice for bloggers.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers(Who makes up these rules? 15 is WAY to much!)
  • Tell those 15 bloggers via comment!¬†

  WHY I STARTED BLOGGING!

Well, when I just turned eleven my Mom told me about this blog, and I thought “Oh that’s cool but what would mine be about?” Then I remembered that making a blog was something I had to do for school in fifth grade(I was in sixth at the time) so I went back to fifth and found where I was supposed to make one. I made an account(with my parents Gmail) and named my¬†blog *Cringes* Minty plaid.¬†I didn’t know how¬†to make a post, customize, and stuff so I gave up.

Five or Six¬†months later I randomly looked up “American Girl blogs”. I found Happy House of AG. I didn’t read any of her posts just the “Meet the Dolls” page.¬†At that time I¬†didn’t think about blogging.

One year and One/Two months later I looked up “American Girl Blogs” again. I found Happy house of AG(again) and Little house of American Girl. I would read some of their posts and pages. I really liked Loren’s photo stories especially Victorian beauties.

A couple Days after that I was at Italian restaurant and I told my Mom that I’m thinking of starting an AG blog. She thought it was a good idea but she just couldn’t help me because she doesn’t known anything about blogging. I set up my blog AG by the Cape( later renamed Kiki’s Doll Hut later renamed Kiki Through the Looking-Glass (This is my last name change :D)¬†and deleted Minty plaid for good ;). The End!

MY TIPS:

1: Don’t let getting internet famous be your goal. I know a girl and that all she talks about is followers and wanting to get popular! It sucks the fun out of blogging when you do that. Don’t get me wrong followers are great just don’t let that be your focus:)

2: Don’t advertise your blog. It’s nice if someone ask “Hey, what’s your blog called?” But some people just go overboard.

3: Work hard. Blogging to me is very serious and important. I think about when I get up and when I fall asleep about how to make it better.

4:Grammar. Blogger think that abbreviations are “trendy” but Newsflash people¬†they make you look sloppy and uneducated. Now sometimes I’ll do abbreviations in comments but it’s rare just try not to do it in your posts.

5:Comment on those smaller blogs. Most bloggers comment on popular blogs. I’m like why? They won’t get back to you they are to busy. The smaller ones¬†are¬†usually much¬†nicer and you could make a friend. Not saying that all popular blogs are like this.
