I'm a Discovery Girl

Well, this is a milestone for me in the blogging world, my friends. I'm about to show you a little bit more of my identity.

Often, bloggers don't mind sharing pictures of themselves and a little bit of their identities, but from the start, I thought I'd keep mine completely private and not tell you guys about DG. But after a lot of discussion with my family and myself, I've finally decided: I'm going to share my DG experience with you.

Discovery Girls is a magazine for tween girls, dealing with issues about tough friendships, bullying, peer pressure, self-esteem, and other important things that girls go through this day and age. They feature girls from all over North America, and this year, they're going worldwide. I had applied to be in DG because I fell in love with the magazine from the moment I read it. It's a truly wonderful thing, and to be a part of it was an amazing feeling. The friends I made there, including Jollygirl, were incredible and we still keep in touch. And we'll still stay in touch for the rest of our lives.

I am in this December/January issue of Discovery Girls, which can be found here. I'm the one with the brown hair, in the sparkly red hat. I had a blast at the summit, the most amazing time ever. I miss the girls there like family, and love them like sisters that you have never fought with.

This whole sentence is the link to a snippet of my profile (I'm the first one with the brown hair). I'll also get a web diary similar to this one, and I'll definitely share the link to that with you guys as well.

I decided to finally share these links with you because this is an amazing opportunity for you to find out more about the blogger behind the screen. I still don't think I'll post any pictures of myself, but that may change also one day. But for now, I'm happy remaining Oakstar, the girl you read on this blog, the one who gets excited about tagging her blog posts and posting about something fun.

Thank you for reading my blog. It means a lot to me!

  1. It must have taken a lot of courage to say that. I'm still not sure about telling everyone which person I am, but it's awesome that you did. I'm sure that everyone will only like you more when they see your profile.

  2. who you are. I get what you mean about some bloggers being open to sharing their identities; that is something that some people who read my blog wish for me to change my username into something else more personal, but since I can't share what I look like and much of my identity, my nickname, however obscure it may seem to many, is personal and is something I wish people would get to know me by. You're really pretty, by the way! I love your profile. ^.^ And I'm absolutely excited to read your web diary!!!

    xoxo Morning

    1. Thank you so much Morning! It would actually be strange thinking of you with a different name, I'm so used to thinking of you like that! I'll post the link on my blog as soon as it goes uP!

  3. Wow, you are brave, and very pretty. I think it took so much courage to do this and I am a subscriber to Discovery Girls so whenever I see your face on the cover I can go "Hey, I know her!" I loved your profile by the way.

  4. Aww you are so beautiful! And your posts are so mature... I could easily misinterpret you as a 17/18 year old person from reading what you write:)
    Keep going, congratulations! You are amazing <3
