Bye

Hi.

I want to first start off by saying that this entire American Girl journey has been amazing- and I'll never forget the amazingness of every comment and e-mail from a reader, but y'all, I I'm moving on.

I don't really like American Girl anymore. I haven't sat down with my dolls in a while and I haven't had any interest to continue Take the Stage or do my dolls' hair. I don't like the American Girl company.

I will never forget any of the readers I've met online, but I honestly believe that I can't continue with this blog. I love my dolls, but not in the same way. I will treasure them forever, but not in the same way.

I'm moving on from this blog.

I'm sorry if I disappointed any of you, please don't be mad, I'm honored that I'm the one who inspired you to create blogs, but it's not like I'm stopping blogging altogether! I will be posting more often on Rhymes With Fargo and I look forward to seeing you there.


Goodbye,
Gabby

Farewell Gabby! <3 I don't want to make you feel bad, but my heart stopped when I saw the title of your post, because I knew what it would say. That's too bad that your leaving, but I can't hold you against it. Thanks for the fun contests and posts! I hope you don't delete this blog because I will want to look back in the archives. Anyway, thanks for the memories!!

Katrina said...

Ohh, I understand! I haven't played with my AG dolls for ages but I very much so enjoyed coming and checking your blog EVERY day! I'm glad you aren't done with blogging though! Bye (the old) AG lover-amazing blog poster-like a friend (in a way...feel like I know you through your posts)-awesome person-Gabby. Hello I love names-Gabby! See you there! We'll miss the AG you though!

Oh mai gosh, you're going to kill me, Gabby! You're the SECOND person to leave the AG world. :( All the good bloggers are going away!
But since I might be leaving my own blog soon, I really understand.

Gabby- We'll all miss you so much! You know, I've never actually sat down and thought about the quality in the AG things! And i agree 100% on what you said in this post and the last. AG products used to be made with quality! I'll miss you blogging here and I'll miss AG because it's time for me to move on as well. All I can say I guess is bye Gabby, bye American Girl! I'll miss you!
Sincerely
Your biggest fan
Katrina

Well,
I'm sorry to see you go and all, but I respect the fact that you admit that you are just not in blogging about the dolls anymore.
I understand that you want to move on too.
Good luck with your other blogs and thanks for blogging this long!
A fellow doll blogger,

I understand, Gabby. We all sometimes get too old for things. I mean, would you still want to play with your baby toys? Well, anyways, I just checked out The Name Princess and loved it. Can't wait to see more posts!

Kellee said...

Aw, we'll really miss you! I wish you weren't leaving, but I can understand how you feel. :)

Alyssa :) said...

Please reconsider. I completely agree with you, but dont let American Girl win! Maybe you should get in contact with AG and tell them excactly what you said.

Emma said...

Oh no Gabby!:( I am so upset! Please don't go.:(

Aww this blog inspired me to start blogging + loving American girl dolls as much as I do now :(

geridil said...

Oh sigh. All of the American Girl blogs I read decided not to post anymore. And I understand, Gabby. Eventually, us girls will get tired of the American girl, as we age.

Talley said...

I agree. You know why it changed? Because Mattel bought it and renamed it, making it just a money business. When it was Pleasant Company it was a family wanting to make dolls for little girls, and was exactly what you said it used to be.When I found out about their old history I was like 'Wow, that truly sucks, and is sad that they let mattel buy the company.'

Ro said...

wow.
I guess all good things must come to an end...
I just want to say you are amazing and I love your blogs!
You should be a journalist or something when you grow up!
:'-)
I'll miss your blog!

Maya said...

Contact American Girl from their website and tell them how you feel. Make sure to leave your email address so the can respond and tell you what's going on. I will miss you sooo much! When i saw this, I immediately posted a tribute to you on my blog, dollgirlsmaya.blogspot.com.
Again we will all miss you very much!

winkie said...

i am so said to hear that you are leaving. but i totally understand how you feel. i'm feeling some of those "moving on" feelings too. i have made a blog that is not about ag, just about myself now (called: winkiesgarden.blogspot.com, just incase you want to check it out.) i checked out your new blog and i love it! you were a total inspiration to me.

I can understand other interest becoming more important. Hang on to your dolls, though. Someday you may be interested in them as a collector's item, or possible just to pass down to a daughter or granddaughter.

Gabby, although I am not a follower, I sometimes "stop in" to see your blog. Gabby you have 190 followers. No one wants you to go, you'll be greatly missed, and you have a fantastic blog! How about staying just a little longer? Please?

Katie said...

Your blog was pretty cool. But if you do want someone to take care of your dolls I would be happy to do so. I love AG's even though I am a middle schooler. My closet is my doll house, I have a school for my dolls, and I make 3 meals a day for my dolls( I have an AG and an our generation). I am sorry if you are thinking: Katie, you want my dolls? You are just like everyone else! If you are thinking that please don't respond, if you are thinking something else please email me at Katie4Rain@gmail.com . If you are totally ready to like send your dolls or something we still need to email each other.
Thanks,
Katie
