HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011! January 1, 2011

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!! Yep, it’s officially 2011!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYA! My BFF Abby (you may know her as pepperlot, Abby@CCGA) spent the night tonight and we aren’t planning on going to bed anytime soon! Haha! We gathered in my mom and dad’s room and watched the ball drop. Then, when 2011 hit, we opened a bottle of sparkling grape juice and gave New Years cheers! Then, of course, we went outside and banged pots and pans. LOL. Then I had the crazy idea to get out the iHome (the thing you plug music into to make it loud) , plug it in outside, and play loud music! Hahaha we are so dorky but it was fun anyway. Now we are waiting for AG, who is as slow as an old man, to update their site! Yay! My dolls are excited, too. They had fun eating cake and watching the ball drop! 😉
Well, Lanie now feels like old news. Melanie and Rebecca (Abby’s dolls) are trying to cheer her up, but inside they are praying that Abby will decide to get Kanani. XD

An Adorable Video! And some other stuff! December 12, 2010

Hi guys! Well, as you know, I’ve just opened up a new site, so I’ve been working on that over the last couple of days, so I haven’t been doing much work on here. Bu today I have a couple exciting things for you, and an adorable video I found that I thought you guys would enjoy seeing. 🙂

1. I have been planning some really fun stuff for you guys that I have been working on this week and the past weekend. It’s a surprise, but I will tell you that one is a music video and the other is a slideshow based on a touching song. Since theses are so special, I will be posting the video on both Youtube and my site, and the slideshow on picasa as well as right here! You really want some clues? Ok, here’s a few (for the video):
• Features a song by 8-year-old Rhema Marvanne (I’m making a post about her soon and letting you guys get to know her soon!).
• Based on a true story (not the song but the actual video).
• About a girl who’s AAD is in the RUAMSY (unscramble!) Heehee! Oh, and in case your wondering, it’s not sad. LOL. In fact, it’s actually pretty peppy and fun.
And the slideshow…..well, it’s touching and based on soemthing that’s going through my life now. NOW MY LIPS ARE SEALED! LOL! Wait, if they’re sealed, how can I tell you #2? *unzips lips*

2. I am going to NY (the state, not the city, LOL) to see family and celebrate pre-Christmas with them!  We are leaving in a few days for the 13 hour drive (I REPEAT, 13 HOURS!) to go up. I’m so excited! I haven’t seen my cousins up there in 1 or 2 years! I’m so excited. We aren’t staying for actual Christmas, but you can bet everything’s going to be snowy up there! We might get up to 4 feet of snow- meaning we might be snowed in for an extra day or two! I haven’t seen that much snow in my life! But pray we can get home before C-mas..LOL. Right now, it looks like I’m bringing Julie and Sam, and I may make a photostory based on the preparations for the trip. What do you think? 😀

Heheee! NOW I can seal my lips as I show you this adorable video!

Heehee! Enjoy!

HAPPY FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY! TO ME! July 31, 2010

Filed under: Message from Madeline,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 4:55 PM

TODAY MARKS THE FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF AMERICAN GIRL DOLL CENTRAL!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT’S BEEN A YEAR?!?!?!?!?!?! WOW!

I am so happy because I got back from the beach today, we means I AM here for the anniversary!!!!! I am so excited!

Here’s a little history of my blog.

As everyone says when their blog hits its anniversary, I started this blog having no idea what it would be like. I didn’t think it was too great, I didn’t know if people would like it or even view it, and I wasn’t sure about anything. Before I started this blog, I admired so many others and said one day, “Hey, maybe I could do that.” I asked my dad how to create a website, and he told just to punch in: “Make a Website for free.” So I did. I tried so many blog-maker-things-or-whatever-you-call-them, but nothing seemed to work for me. ( In fact, there are actually Blogger, Webs and more AGDC sites with nothing on them!!!!) I almost gave up, but then WordPress came along. It was easy, fun, and seemed very simple. So when I got my URL, I made a little post. It was just saying stuff like “This is American Girl Doll Central” and “I hope you like my website.” and things like that, along with a blurry picture of my dolls and my friend’s two dolls.
Then I got a little creative. I toyed around with my website and figured out how to tweek the appearance, add links and categories, and more. My very first photo story was, I believe, about Eva Grace celebrating Pink Day. You could barely call it a photo story, based on what I have now. But I thought it was pretty good, and I made adventures of my friend’s Kit doll traveling to my house.
I tried t0 get people visit my website. When  visited another site, I’d say something like “Please look at my site if you can! I love yours!”. This is pretty funny: When I would go to the Apple store at the mall, I’d go on one or two of the sample computers and purposely leave it on American Girl Doll Central.com. I thought a little girl would come by and see it! 🙂
Soon, lots of people started to visit my site! I wasn’t sure what did it, but people from other doll sites started to comment regularly. Soon, I was becoming a real website owner! It was so fun adn I would log on every day after school and enjoy reading emails and new comments. If you have a blog, you know how great it feels to get positive comments and emails. Some people now have even asked me for advice! I feel great to be someone that other girls can ask advice.
And, I’ve gained SO MANY FRIENDS!!!! I’ve never seen some in real life, but it’s pretty cool because I have some great online BFF’s (whom I really want to meet someday)!

Oh, and let me say another time: YOUR COMMENTS COUNT! I LOVE to receive comments on anything- my blog, my picasa, my youtube……and I will try my best to reply to them! So comment!

*HERE IS A FUN FAQ QUESTION!*

Q: The name of the site is American Girl Doll Central. Why is the URL “americangirldcentral” and not just “americangirldollcentral” or “americangirlcentral”?

A:  In the process of trying to create a blog, I created a wordpress. “American Girl Central” was what I wanted to call my website. Americangirlcentral was already taken, so I decided to make it “American Girl DOLL Central.” And at first, americangirldollcentral WAS  the URL. But for some reason I lost the password to it, so I couldn’t log into it. I just decided to make a new one. Of course, americangirldollcentral was “already taken” so I had to just leave it a d, apparently.

Thank you ALL for making this site possible. Yes, it’s you, the friends and fans, that make me love to blog.

Thanks,
Madeline and 11.

 

Hey! July 23, 2010

Filed under: Message from Madeline — Madeline@AGDC @ 3:26 PM

Hi guys! I just got back from camp, but guess where I’m going now-the beach! We were supposed to leave in a couple days, but a few days ago we decided that we’d leave today. We will be staying for a week. Here’s why I’m telling you- so that you don’t freak out when I’m gone, and American Girl Doll Central’s first year anniversary takes place while we are gone. 😦 I know, horrible, right? I won’t be here! Well, maybe I will…..my sister is bringing her laptop. However, we aren’t sure whether or not we’ll get internet where we are (were staying at a beach house, not a hotel.). We think we will, and hope so, but not sure. I’m telling you that if I suddenly disappear over the next few days, then we don’t have internet. If we DO end up having it, then I’ll make a quick post to say we do. Thank you so much and have a great day! Pray that we have internet! 😉

 

InnerStar U Starter Set July 20, 2010

Filed under: Innerstar University,Message from Madeline — Madeline@AGDC @ 1:25 PM

Hey everyone! My sister comes back from Nicaragua today! Thank you for all your prayers and have a blessed day!

But this post is mainly about InnerStar U. I just bought the starter kit! I earned the money and my mom ordered it, so hopefully it’s on it’s way! I can’t wait! You can check to see what InnerStar U is like on Liz’s website, American Girl Fan, here. I noticed that some of you had questions and complaints about InnerStar U, and I’m here to help.

From a parent on my website: “My daughter has purchased 3 American Girl dolls in the past three years, and I feel that it is a shame that she has to purchase another one just to access this InnerStar site.”

I’m sorry about how you feel! Actually, your daughter doesn’t have to purchase another doll. She can get the starter pack for $10 (free shipping). If she has only historical dolls, that is also OK. Historical Dolls are not featured on the site, but she can create a virtual MyAG. If you still are not sure, you can try out the free demo at American Girl.com.

From hew608: “When I searched American Girl, there was no starter kit. 😦 Where do you find it?”

Hew608, you can buy the starter pack HERE. Hope this helps!

IF ANY OF YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS, I WILL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM! PLEASE COMMENT BELOW.
