Sometimes I look at my dolls and wonder why I spent so much money on them. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
I think about all the other things I could have gotten with that money. I could have paid for most of one term’s worth of tuition. I could have bought a lot of books or a new laptop (!) or a new digital camera. I could have bought new clothes (for me!) or shoes or pretty dresses (wait a moment, I buy dresses anyways…).
But then I think about all the things that Blythe has drawn me towards.
It drew me more into uploading and participating on Flickr.
It drew me more into sewing (I did knit and crochet before, but now I do it on a smaller scale).
It drew me more into the Blythe forums (I was a member prior to owning a Blythe, but I certainly wouldn’t have been so actively participating if I didn’t own one… or seven.).
And Blythe drew me to create this blog (yay!).
So while I could have bought a whole bunch of other things (and, to be truthful, I still spend money on tuition, the occasional new book, clothes [not that often] and pretty dresses [possibly too often]), I don’t think most of those things would have done as much for me as Blythe has. After all, if it weren’t for Blythe, I wouldn’t have made so many friends online (or tweet so much!) and it’s definitely been worth it, making friends with people and being active in a community like the Blythe community.
What has Blythe done for you?
