La di da di da ~
With yesterday’s post, you may have realised the title had very little to do with the post. That’s because I kind of steered off track haha. Today, however, I intend to keep on track. You know when memories pour out? Yup.
I just noticed pretty much five seconds ago that tomorrow is the 24th of January 2011. At this time last year I was blogging away on the new Tinted Lens. This time in 2009 Raining Water was quickly coming to an end. On the 24th of January 2008, something massive happened.
I deleted my Club Penguin blog.
It was a big decision back then; sure, I was ‘past my prime’ in terms of my CP blog, but I still had a loyal group of viewers, some of which are still here today [:D] but I felt the time was up.
I lasted just over a year in the Club Penguin blogging land; a month or two on fylliperguuse.wordpress.com and 11 months on fylliper.wordpress.com. It was a long time.
But the times on Club Pengiuin – they were so fun! Sitting on the Dock with the ‘cool kids’…doing those sled races, secret agent missions, cooking pizza, throwing snowballs at innocent passers-by…ahh, the memories.
And the excitement when the parties started! I remember coming home on a Friday afternoon and logging onto Club Penguin so I could be the first to post about the items or the pin or the new secret and whatnot. Sure, I was rarely the first to do so, but the possibility of being the first was just too good to pass up.
I remember hunting for secrets in the clothing catalog, holding parties to celebrate milestones. One of the first parties I held was for reaching 25,000 hits…I almost missed that party but I met one of my best friends at the time. The parties kept getting bigger, and I remember one I had was actually pretty good. Ah, what fun we had.
Logging onto Mammoth server, or Big Foot, or whatever other servers us ‘cool kids’ used to hang out back in the day, heading down to the dock, talking to people. I recall feeling such excitement when I met Holagurrl25, Antras, and so on, and even more excitement when they accepted my buddy request.
And one of the best feelings was that feeling I got when someone actually recognised me. Someone who had never commented on my site, but had apparently read it and was a fan. That made me feel so…happy!
The CP days were good ones, the golden times, when practically everything was perfect. Nowadays, we’ve stepped into darker territory but we’re still having fun, right?
Without CP, I wouldn’t be here and many of us wouldn’t be blogging either.
It’s funny, to think Club Penguin is the thing that has ultimately brought us such joy and fun so many years after we shelved our penguins away.
PS, like the new header?
