I know that quite a few of you like myself are fans of the 1,000 Splendid Dolls YouTube Channel so I’m sure that you are all as disappointed as I am to hear that the girls have decided to take a break.
I must admit that I haven’t visited for a while because I like to enjoy Shelly’s videos without other distractions going on so unlike most of my TV watching I don’t watch while chatting online, writing posts, or doing any other tasks. I save them up until I have a couple of hours to spare and then binge watch them.
When I watched the video and heard what Colleen had to say I was very sad to hear that the reason that they were quitting was because of negative comments from a small number of their viewers. People are so thoughtless sometimes, making personal comments or criticising their lifestyle choices. We are very lucky that our WordPress community is much nicer. I think it must be a lot harder to put yourself out there on YouTube for people to see you and hear you than to do a blog like this. I couldn’t do it. I don’t even like to share my photograph very often.
You will be glad to know that the channel and the Flickr stream will still be available for us to refer to. I understand that Shelly has turned off her doll email for now and comments are now turned off on the YouTube channel. I don’t blame her. I sent a message via Flickr but am not sure if she will see it. I hope she will see this post and know that people are thinking of her.
So Shelly and Colleen, if you see this, thank you so much for sharing your dolls and your lives with us. I hope that you will keep on enjoying your dolls and I hope that one day you will feel like coming back.
Take care of yourselves.
