Hey everyone, I know what you guys are thinking: “OH MY GOSH A POST FROM SAMMMM!?!” Yes, it is a post from me, but sadly it is probably my last.
I still love Poptropica and it is a huge part of me… but life is tough and it gets in the way. College, school, clubs and friendships have taken precedence over blogging matters. I have a 3.9 GPA in high school and a 98% average in my college class. Also, I have been nominated by my district for the Best Treasurer of Key Club in my region (3 states) ;).
So you guys now know I haven’t been goofing off at all and just have been super busy. I just feel the time has come for me to resign and give someone else a lucky shot at being an author. I know I have been taking up space as an author and I regret that. I remember being one of you guys striving to be called one of illustrious “PHB authors” and make world renowned posts for all to enjoy. I achieved that goal and have enjoyed every single passing second of it.
For all who strive to be an author – don’t give up! I was just about to give up when Fishy emailed me and changed my life. This blog has changed me for the better. I have met so many people and have made so many friends (some life-long) doing what we all enjoy: Poptropica blogging. Believe it or not, but by supporting me, it made me want to post more and I was never much more eager to post than the last few months. It’s really heartwarming to know that people on here take time to say: “Sam, I miss your posts. Can you please post again?”. Those people motivate me to do better as a blogger – and sadly, I have failed my Poptropica family in post quantity.
I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me through everything on here, my blog, and the chat personally such as: Serious Shadow, Tough Raptor, Elphangor on my blog. Super Thunder, Icy Comet, Angry Wing, Shaggy Tornado, Fuzzy-B, and Blake as former authors that helped me with posts and inspired me. Obi, Pixel, Flamez, and Rue as owners/mods on the chat. I’d really like to thank BT, GH, SR, Paul, Andrew, Syd, and Fishy for being sensational coworkers and a big help with my posts; especially Andrew shh ;). But most of all, I would like to thank every single one of you for reading, liking, and commenting on my posts. I wouldn’t even be here without you guys. Every single one of you is amazing.
I’d also like to say that I am just resigning from the PHB, I will be still as active as I was and I will be on the PHC frequently. I might make a few guest posts in the summer too ;’). I will also be a consultant with all the PHB authors on decisions for the blog – so I will still be around! All of you guys are a true blessing and a joy to have worked and talked with. I will always have a spot in my heart for the PHB and you guys!
For possibly the last time,
