Happy 6th Birthday, BlytheLife!

Six years ago, a little blog started off with a simple welcome message and the promise of an interview & giveaway – and now look at it! BlytheLife is my happy place on the internet to talk about dolls, and I think it’s important to have something like that in your life. A happy place among the chaos of everything else happening in real life. Six years ago, I didn’t even know anyone offline that owned a Blythe. I never met anyone else who owned a Blythe doll and never saw a Kenner or a BL in person and now I own both. The best addition I made this year to my Blythe family was Lottie.


Now, I had promised a really awesome giveaway if BlytheLife hit 1000 likes on Facebook and it didn’t make it (855 likes as I write this post). And with the impending Canada Post strike, it makes it difficult for me to get a pretty awesome giveaway prize into the country (who else is sad about that? I know I am!). So what I would like to propose is that if BlytheLife gets to 900 likes on Facebook by the end of July, then I’ll do a pretty awesome giveaway in August (provided that the postal service is working again, if not it’ll happen once the postal service starts delivering mail again).

It’ll be amazing, I promise. And worth the wait.


A lot has changed since July 1, 2015. BlytheCon Vancouver was a whirlwind of excitement and chaos in my life. I got a job, and then I got another job. BlytheLife HQ will be moving this month and I’m both excited and not excited about that. As BlytheLife turns 6, Canada turns 149. I will be taking my extended weekend to relax and have fun with family and friends before going back to work on Monday.

Happy BlytheLife Day!
