Hellos & Goodbyes

Farewell my fellow Poptropicans

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.

tipic1I 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,

  7. Sam, remember the email I sent you two years ago? You’ve ‘owl’-ways been a great friend and one of the best authors I’ve worked with. I know you’re just starting your future and we have to give it our best when it comes to college. Thank you so much for your contributions to the PHB and maybe we’ll get to see each other someday, with all our plans succeeded. Make sure to keep those Samzures, we’ll miss those. 🙂

    1. I remember that email LOL. I remember this quote by Elbert Hubbard: “Responsibility is the price of freedom.” it is exactly that tbh. Hopefully we do all meet someday ;). You still would get a ton of random samzures from me ;p
