I sat on the floor of the living room, scrolling through random posts on Emmie’s WordPress reader.
But a post called Surprise! from Build A Bears Furever caught my eye. I clicked, curious.
What?! I thought as she read the post. Diamond is starting a personal blog? That’s crazy! I have to FaceTime the Stones!
The phone rang…and rang…and rang! Ugh, this is taking forever. I waited impatiently for a few moments, before Cloud answered the phone. “Um…who is this?”
“CLOUD! It’s me, Maryellen! From American Girl World? Helloooo? Remember me?”
“Oh yeah! I know you. Why are you calling?”
“Well…” I lowered my voice dramatically. “I saw that Diamond posted something very important on the stuffie blog. Something about…a surprise.”
“WHAT SURPRISE?” Candy butted in. “Who is this?”
“Maryellen,” I said. “I saw that Diamond is starting a new blog.”
“Oh, really? She hasn’t told us. Cool!” Cloud said.
“But here’s the thing – ever since Emmie started her personal blog, Emmie’s posted like two posts. TWO POSTS. And how many of those was I in? NONE!”
Candy gasped. “You don’t mean…”
“Yes,” I nodded solemnly. “Diamond is going to forget all about you!”
“WHAT?!” Candy shrieked. “No! No! That can’t beeeeeee!” She wailed. “That means less presents! How dare she?”
“Oh no! I love the blog. She can’t abandon us!”
“Sorry to break it to ya. But that’s what happens!”
Just then, Alexandra came into the room. “Hey, Ellie! I’m home!” Then she noticed I was on Paris’s iPad. “Ellie! You’ve gotta stop doing that! You’ve reached your device limit for today. Hand it over.”
“But I can’t! I’m calling the Stones to tell them that Diamond is starting a new blog and she’s going to forget all about them. See?” I shoved the phone in Alexandra’s face for emphasis. Candy and Cloud waved from inside the phone.
“Maryellen! Why would you tell them that? That is so not true.”
“But it is! Haven’t you noticed that Emmie hasn’t done any posts since like August? Which just so happens to be the month she started her new blog?”
“That’s not true – Emmie’s been working hard on transferring to the new website all weekend. Plus, she’s also been so busy with school and dance that she even missed last week’s post on her new blog!”
Alexandra took Paris’s iPad right out of my hands. “I’m so sorry, Cloud and Candy! Diamond still loves you, she’s just going to be spending a little time getting her new blog started at first.”
“YES!” Candy cheered. “More presents!”
“Phew!” Cloud sighed in relief.
“Okay, I’ve got to start packing. Maryellen, say bye to the Stones!”
“Bye!” I waved, and Alexandra hung up.
“But you do realize that Emmie hasn’t posted about either of us all summer, right?”
“We’re in a post right now.”
Hey guys! I had so much fun collaborating with Diamond to make this cute photo story for her blog tour for her new blog, I Have 12% of a Plan! I love the pictures she took – thank you so much, Diamond! I really hope you guys liked this photostory, Diamond and I worked super hard on it!
Do you like the photostory? What do you think of the little living room setup? The FaceTime editing? Maryellen’s new freckles? The little iPad I made? Diamond’s adorable photos?
And…hmm…what could Alexandra possibly be packing for?
PS. I FIGURED OUT WHY HER BLOG IS CALLED 12% OF A PLAN MWAHAHAHA (hint: it’s a marvel thing)
