About ACarley
Joined November 2014
Hi there! My name is Alisha, and I am 27 years old. I was born and raised in southern Louisiana and still live there today.

When I was little, I wanted to become a doctor. In middle school to high school, that evolved into wanting to become a child psychologist. Then I finally graduated high school and while my interest in psychology hasn't waned much, I realized that if high school stressed me out that badly, then how was I ever going to handle medical school? Not to mention that many people in my family and some of my friends have their own host of problems. Coupled with having no mode of transportation, going away to college or a job outside of the home just isn't an option right now. But I still try my hardest to help out my family in any way I can, so I've been looking for ways to both earn money at home, and soon maybe take college courses from home too.

I'm going to come right out and admit it: I love dolls, and I collect them. I am just one in a surprising number of adult women that collect or are fans of American Girl and similar doll companies. I don't stop at American Girl; as a matter of fact, even though I've loved American Girl since I was much younger, the first dolls I collected were from a company called A Life of Faith, produced by Mission City Press. The company had closed its doors about six months before I discovered them, but luckily, there was a store that had the two dolls I wanted most and was willing to ship them to me.

It was during a year that my father had lost his job and we were very much struggling financially, so I had gotten the idea from seeing a cheap pattern at Walmart--what if I started making doll clothing to sell? It's still something I haven't gotten off the ground quite yet as I don't get to sew too often, but it's still something I love to do and hope to have more time for very soon. (If you're wondering, he did find work again the next year.) I would love to make clothing for dolls of many sizes, not just 18" dolls. I've also gotten back into knitting and crochet very recently, and hope to possibly get into quilting as well.

I am a music lover too. I tend to listen to more rock music than anything else (my favorite band is Seether), but I love just about all genres of music. I used to play the clarinet in marching band at school, but now I occasionally play the keyboard and the guitar, when I have the time and can get to them to play them. I also love to sing--not professionally, but because it's just fun! I just about always have music playing, no matter what I'm up to.

I'm glad to now be a part of the Wealthy Affiliate community and hope to get to know everyone better! I'm sure I'll have even more to add here later.

Hi Alisha, WELCOME!!! Wow, you have a lot of niche ideas already... I love rag dolls... and appreciate your passion for America Girls. You definitely came to the right place... and don't give up on the psychology part... but truth be told, as a Psychology major I can tell you, you can learn a lot on your own... focus on building your WA business and don't look back... do what you love. Rooting for your success... ;-)

ACarley Premium
Thank you for following me :) and I'm happy for all of the encouragement, I think I do have my niche figured out. Just have to determine how to make it work. I'm developing a fan site around a discontinued doll line, so that makes it a little more difficult, but even that could be made to work, I'm sure.

You're right. I'm just going to keep paying close attention to the lessons like I've been doing because I know that's how I'll figure this out. I refuse to let myself get discouraged by thinking I've gone too narrow.

Hi Alicia :) You are so creatively talented! I'm sure you would have no trouble being able to sell dolls clothes and any other things that you create, especially online. I make jewelry and sell on Ebay, and a friend of mine makes "baby born" dolls clothes..here in our town they sell like hotcakes at the markets and car boot sales! I collect dolls too, porcelain ones :)
Nice to meet you here Alicia, I only joined yesterday :)
Take care!

Another doll collector! That's so cool :D thank you for the praise, I don't know how creative I can really say I am xD I could stand to get just a little better with my sewing even though I'm decent with it. But it's a fact that I do love to create, and I appreciate all of your support.

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community Alisha. If you are serious about reaching success online, I believe you have made the right choice! I almost did regret all my praises in the chat just now....... you going premium now with full eagerness on top, makes me kinda partner in crime here and I am from the day forward obligated to make sure you do not fail but grow each day towards glory, fame and fortune! ;)=

Send me a PM once you have premium, and I will send you that special keyword for you.

Thank you so much! I thought I was just going to stick with the free account for a little while but maybe I'll start the premium account sooner than later. I'll have to see about it.

Wow, aren't you Ms. Popular! Had to scroll way down here to find my message, lol.

Sounds like you have a huge interest in dolls. Are you doing that for your niche? I think it could be a winner!
Reply
ACarley Premium
Lol :P Indeed, I have decided on that as my niche. More specifically I'm building an informative website around a doll line that is discontinued (A Life of Faith), which seems like it would be challenging, but from what I have observed the fanbase is still there and I will probably also have articles for how to care for those kind of dolls and find clothes and accessories for them.

nathaniell Premium
Coolio. Sounds like a plan!
Reply
ACarley Premium
Yup :) I'm pretty excited about it, I had the idea for a fan site in mind even before I discovered Wealthy Affiliate, just for fun and my own enjoyment.
