New to "Never Grow Up"? Here's a basic intro to the site. :)
"Never Grow Up: A Mom's Guide to Dolls and More" is a blog that is dedicated to giving detailed reviews of dolls and doll-related products. I focus mainly on the popular 18" American Girl dolls and other compatible play doll lines, as well as Disney fashion dolls, especially those from the movies "Beauty and the Beast" and "Tangled". While these are the dolls I usually post about, I also enjoy branching out to other unique or beautiful dolls when I come across them.
This blog also features reviews of other dolls and toys, doll photography, movie reviews, thrift store finds, thoughts on my faith, stories from my life, and whatever else strikes my fancy. :)
So if you're just getting started, here are a few basics.
Since you've found this spot, you've obviously noticed the page tabs at the top of the blog. This is the best way to find things quickly. Want to know a little more about "Beastsbelle"? Check out the About Me page. You can also find posts on some of my Past Doll Projects and Thrift Store Finds.
For those of you looking for my reviews of dolls and doll-related items, such as clothing and accessories, be sure to stop by my Doll and Toy Reviews page. I've done my best to list every single doll or toy-related review I've done to date on that page. I've grouped things by category and have listed each doll or item alphabetically within their category to make it easy for my readers.
I've added pages that link to my posts on Movie and TV reviews, Relationships, and my Spiritual Life. These are a bit off-topic from the normal blog subjects that I cover, but I thought some of you might enjoy finding them in one convenient location.
The other pages are pretty self-explanatory. Most of these pages are a work in progress that will continue to change and grow as I add posts to my blog, so you'll want to come back and visit them again as time passes.
If you can't find what you're looking for, or if you have a question or conversation that might be too long or involved for the comments, you can click on the Contact Me page to get my blog email address. :)
On the main blog, you can enjoy my latest posts. My goal is to have at least one new post up per week. Of course, sometimes life happens and I don't make that goal. Then, other weeks, I have so much to say, I'll post 2 or 3 times. :} Being a stay-at-home mom of 3 definitely keeps life unpredictable! ;)
My right sidebar includes blog buttons which will link others back to my blogs. I'd love it if you felt like adding a button to your blog or website.
Just a little further down, you'll find a "Search this Blog" bar, which can help you look for a specific doll or post. You can also use my list of Labels to find what you're looking for.
On the left sidebar, you'll find links to my Flickr account, my eBay, my Facebook page, my YouTube channel, and my Pinterest account. I'd love to hear from you any of those places. :)
If you'd like to check out some of my most popular posts, you can find a list of them at the bottom of my blog.
I think that about covers everything. If you have questions about anything I've discussed here or anything else, feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, kick back, relax, and enjoy your stay. :)
