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,

I’ve gotten to know you pretty well in the time I’ve been on here and I’m sure we’ll continue creating memories in the future. We’ll miss having you on the team, Sammeh, but I’m glad you’ll still be around.
May the Samzures continue forevermore. XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

I won’t forget you and the things you did to the PHB, buddy. Miss you. *shreds tear*
I marvel at the things I have accomplished on this blog. I never would of thought I could of done so many things looking back on it. With everyone’s support, I made it possible 😉
so heartfelt and compassionate, I love that comment ❤
It’s been cool getting to know you over these past few years- as co-bloggers especially. Thanks for your wit, and I wish you luck on whatever’s gonna come up next for ya. See you around XDD
It has been cool knowing you too :p. My wit will still remain in group chat, don’t worry 😉
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. 🙂
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
OMG I am going to miss you SO much!!! You were an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G author and I am so sad that you are leaving. Oh, and I am REALLY impressed by all of your achievements that you mentioned at the beginning of the post 😛
I’m gonna miss you guys too :(. Thanks! I worked hard for those achievements 😛

Without you , I would have been stuck in everything poptropica, I may be princess cool berry, but this brought an ocean of tears to my face. I wish you best luck on your journey. – Princess cool berry
I can’t believe two authors left the blog in one week. I really don’t want the PHB to go down.
Don’t worry, we have no plans to go down anytime soon, and we’ve still got a dedicated team. 🙂
I’m still sad although the two authors are not totally leaving.
plz comfort me staff
so you want us to completely leave? 😉
I just miss you so much.
I don’t like PHB authors resigning from the blog *sniff*
