I Have 12% Of A Plan Blog Tour: The FaceTime Fiasco! // A Photostory Feat. Diamond @ Build A Bears Furever!

Get outta that reader and onto our brand-new site! Click meeee!

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!”

“Oh…”

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.”

“Oh.”

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?

Here’s What “DD” Really Means | I’m Launching A Lifestyle Blog!

It took months and months of planning. Writing. Designing. Brainstorming. Organizing. Changing. Creating. And now, DD is ready for the world to see.

But what does DD even mean? What’s this secret project, anyways? Well, you’re about to find out.

But first, here’s what DD doesn’t mean. 😂 (Awesome guesses on the survey, guys!)

“I think that DD means uuuuuuuuuuum………*thinks for 10 minutes* something?”

“Nope 😝 maybe a new doll? I have no idea”

“No earthly idea lol”

“Either a book or an impressive video.”

You’re releasing one of your books??? Nooo idea. XD

“DD… does it have Doll as one of the words?”

“Hmm, another doll??”

“You’re going to publish a book?”

“Videos of your dolls dressed as tap-dancing rainbow llamas? (no idea)”

(I’m 99% sure that last one was Natalie. 😂😂😂)

And here’s some guesses that came pretty close to what DD really means:

“Is there a new blog or business?”

“Hmmm, a new blog maybe? A blog design service?”

“Giveaway?”

But, there’s only one guess that got it spot-on:

“IT’S A PERSONAL BLOGGGYYYYYY”

Yup, you read that right! (You also read the title which completely gave this all away, but oh well 😂) I’m finally starting a lifestyle blog – an idea that’s been bouncing around in my brain ever since I first started AGW. It’s been my dream to have a lifestyle blog – and now that dream is coming true!

But wait – what does DD even mean? What does that have to with anything?

Here’s the deal: My new blog is called Diary of a Daydreamer, which is what DD stands for!

The name Diary of a Daydreamer came to me like a whisper in the middle of the night. I kept flipping back and forth between different names, trying to decide what fit DD the best. But then I came up with that name – and I knew it was perfect. I set up some polls to see which one my audience liked the best, and Diary of a Daydreamer won by a landslide!

This new blog is a place where I share my ideas, stories, tips, tutorials, life, songs, and daydreams. At Diary of a Daydreamer, every Saturday you’ll find posts on Blogging, Dance, Fashion, Lifestyle, Music, and Writing. Make sure to subscribe and follow on the new blog so you never miss another post!

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT DIARY OF A DAYDREAMER!

But here’s the best part – to celebrate DD’s launch, we’re hosting an epic giveaway with amazing prizes! And here’s the best part – the giveaway is COMPLETELY virtual, meaning the only address you’ll have to give me is your email! 😉
