Well the "dollies" have finally had their way!
They'd been angling for this for over a year now and decided that the day after Christmas was the best time to ask Linda for their own blog.
They figured that after the mad rush and craziness of the holiday season when Linda was finally able to relax was the best time to attack. She'd be in such a good mood that she wouldn't be able to refuse them.
They all agreed that was a good time, but who would do the asking? None of them wanted to get on the bad side of Linda. No, no that was not a good place to be.
So, they thought about it and decided it should be someone so sweet and kind that Linda wouldn't have the heart to turn her down.
They decided it should be "Patience Is A Virtue." Linda just loved her and loved her wonderful carefree attitude. With "Patience" anything was possible. Including a new blog for the "dollies."
"Patience" decided that she would hop on over to Linda's study and ask her when she was reading some of her favorite blogs. She knew that was how Linda unwinds from a tiring day and figured it would be the perfect time to ask her.
Before she got to the study she could hear Linda laughing and knew that this was the perfect time to strike. Laughter was the best medicine after all.
"Hello, Linda," Patience said. "You seem to be enjoying yourself."
"Well, hello Patience," Linda Replied. "I am. What's up?"
"Not too much," Patience replied. "I wanted to know if this was a good time to talk to you about something I've been thinking about for a long time."
Patience decided to get comfortable first and hopped up on the sofa next to Linda. Then while giving Linda her sweetest smile she said, "Well, you know that your blog readers just love the stories about the "dollies" and I thought that it might be a really good idea to showcase them and life in "The Dollie Storage Room" within their own blog."
When Linda turned to look at her she smiled the sweetest smile you'd ever want to see and said, "The "dollies" blog could be called "The Dollie Storage Room" and would be about them and their lives in "The Dollie Storage Room."
Linda was listening so she continued, "It could be a fun blog for children and parents to visit. It would be filled with everything and anything concerning the dollies - doll stories, doll graphics, doll stitcheries, favorite "dollie" books, favorite "dollie" movies, FREE E-Coloring pages, FREE E-Book, FREE E-Doodles, FREE E-Patterns, FREE Craft Projects and ideas, etc. "
Linda was still listening so she continued, "The dollies would be in charge and the content to include would be up to them. They'd do all the work. That is, all the work they were capable of doing. So, what do you think, Linda? Isn't that a wonderful idea? It is, isn't it Linda?"
Patience was really giving Linda her sweetest, kindest, perkiest smile ever. She couldn't get any cuter and Linda loved her for it. Linda, of course, already knew that Patience was going to ask her this. After all you don't live in a house with 1,796 dolls without having your spies amongst them. She'd never tell who it was, but it was more than one doll. And, one of them was a male doll.
In any event, Linda had been secretly working on the new "The Dollie Storage Room" blog for awhile now with Helena as she loved the idea of the "dollies" having their own blog.
She'd already started filling it up with some of the stories that she had written about the "dollies' on her Linda's Blog.
She also included her FREE “The Dollie Storage Room” E-Series - A Children’s Doll Story E-Book E-Series Introduction and Book One that she had written and stories about the "personalized" dollie graphics. And, she included some of the "The Story Behind My Doll Series" of articles from her blogs, too.
Linda had already consulted Helena on this and they had so many plans for fun things for everyone to enjoy. Of course, all the fun things Patience mentioned to Linda were the ideas Linda and Helena had talked about. Helena, of course, being a wise old senior had talked to Patience about this before she hopped over to ask Linda.
She figured that Patience wouldn't give it another thought and would think it was her idea. Patience and the rest of the "dollies" would think that they would be in charge and, to a degree, they would be. Helena and Linda both thought that the "dollies" involvement should make for a very interesting and fun filled blog.
So, she replied, "Okay, Patience. That's a fabulous idea."
"It is? Oh, Linda," Patience said, "I'm so happy that you agree. The rest of the "dollies" will be so happy to hear that. I just know they will. Why, I'll just hop right over and tell them"
"They already know, Patience," Linda replied. "Just turn around and look and you'll see what I mean."
Patience didn't realize it but all 1796 dolls had sneaked over to Linda's study to see what Linda's reaction would be and to support Patience if need be. Linda, of course, had heard them. There was no way 1,796 dolls could get out of "The Dollie Storage Room", down Linda's hall, and into the study without making a racket. Linda just hoped that her husband hadn't heard them as well.
Patience was so focused on what she was doing that she hadn't heard them at all.
Patience turned and with the sweetest smile you'd ever want to see said, "EVERYONE! I have wonderful, wonderful news. Linda has agreed that we could have our own blog. It will be called "The Dollie Storage Room" blog. Isn't that wonderful? Isn't Linda just the BEST?"
With that last remark all the "dollies" tried to enter Linda's study and hug Patience for asking and hug Linda for agreeing. Of course, 1796 dolls can't all fit in the study, let alone all through the doorway at once.
So, Linda said, "Okay, everyone. I know you're happy. I'm happy, too. Here's what I want you all to do. Turn around and go back to "The Dollie Storage Room" and start to think about what else you want in your blog. I'll need lots and lots of ideas for fun-filled articles and things to do."
"Oh, great idea, Linda."
"Yes, great idea, Linda."
"Let's see. I want a story about me, first."
"Hey, I'm the oldest. It should be me!"
"Well, how about some dollie interest stories. Or dollie news. Or dollie events. Or............
"No, I want.....
Linda knew that this would keep the "dollies" busy for weeks on end and give her time to finalize all the details of the new blog. Ah, just what Linda needed. Another blog. Ah, but what fun this blog would be.
