Wow, been a long time since I’ve posted on here..
Hey guys, hope you still remember me, as GA or as Hicoga.
Yeah, I’m leaving the blog, which probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering that I’ve been dormant on here for the past year.
Now don’t think this means I’m leaving, leaving. You can find me all the time on the PHB chat. ( xat.com/thephc ) I’m really not going anywhere I just think that it isn’t very fair for me to hog up one of the spots on here when I don’t even really care about poptropica anymore.
Although if Juyo wanted to make this the Poptropica/Minecraft Help Blog I’d be all for it. 😉
Now I don’t want this to be just like any old farewell post. I’m going to let you all join me while I reminisce about my time here at the PHB.
So sit down, grab some popcorn, and enjoy.
It all started at school in 5th grade when my friend Mark told me about this new game he’d found on the internet. So I thought I’d try it out and logged on to “Poptropica.com”. I made a character named Golden Axe and played around for a bit in this new virtual world. Poptropica had just opened up about 1 year prior.
I beat all the islands and soon became bored with the game after about a week. I started searching for hidden things around the islands and on the internet. Of course, I eventually found the Poptropica Help Blog. At the time I had no clue I would one day be part of the site.
My favorite author at the time was Codien and he held this contest in one of his posts to get a beard added to your poptropican. I entered the contest and actually ended up being selected as one of the winners. He said the beard would be added to your character about a week afterward and so I waited. A week went by, no beard. Two weeks, Three weeks, and then I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I eMailed Hijuyo about my conflict and she was very helpful and got me my coveted beard. After that, we kept eMailing back and forth and soon became friends.
Well, the rest is history.
Thank you to everyone on here and I hope this blog stays successful for years and years to come.
And by the way, going back to what I said earlier, I am starting up a Minecraft blog called “The Daily Block” Check it out by clicking the picture below.
