Happy Holidays!

Hey everyone!

Okay…I have a lot of explaining to do. So my Blog has kind of died for a couple of months. I guess it’s the same old story most of you know. Yeah, I am unpredictable! Stuff happens which means that I might not be here for some periods of time. It has happened a bit too often, though. So I am making this post to clear up the situation and obviously to wish everyone, reading, a happy holiday and a new year!

You are probably going to experience some déjà vu right now…

I am sorry, again. I left you hanging on this Blog and I have completely abandoned it. I apologise for not being able to read anyone’s comments for the last couple of months and it has given myself a bad impression for new readers. The only excuse I have for this is life. Basically, school, leisure and family. School has been very difficult for me because there has just been a heavy workload of education being piled onto me and it has taken up a lot of my own time too. This explains why I have not blogged on here for a while and even though it is technically a leisure of mine, blogging is something I consider fun but also a lot of work. To be honest, I have avoided blogging even when I have had the chance to return to it. This is because I have not been in the mood for it since it just reminds me of school and commitment. If I tried to do it, then I would have thought to myself how I would be able to maintain something that has just been rebooted. So, for me, it was almost impossible to start again as a result of family and school. I am not going to go into detail – at all – but someone in my family has fallen sick so it has been a stressful few weeks for anything else but support for my family. In addition, school has great dominance over my life right now and it is something that is far too difficult to escape from. This includes GCSE revision/mocks, general homework and autonomous activities that I am part of. Nevertheless, I care about my education and school reputation so it is just something to live with.

Therefore, what does this mean for ‘The Blue Blog’? I am afraid that I can not decide right now so I will endeavour and hopefully manage to start blogging again when there is not anything stopping me. Unfortunately, these occasions are rare (as I have just explained to you) but it is still possible – especially when it is the holidays!

Don’t worry; this post will not end on a sad note but a merry one instead! Of course, it is the holidays and this means that everyone should be riveted with joy and cheer for the special season and the new year. Did that just rhyme? Anyway I just want to clarify that I am not at all gone. If you want to chat, I am on Twitter @Blue21102. You can see my Twitter Timeline on the sidebar of this page. One thing I will try to do is check back on this Blog frequently in case of any comments anyone has to share. So because it is a very jolly time of the year, why not tell me anything that you are excited for? Perhaps: a present for Christmas, wishes for the new year or anything that will bring joy to ‘The Blue Blog’. I am all ears to anyone so please do not hesitate and comment below!

Last of all, a BIG thank you to everyone in the community and my readers for making 2015 a brill year! It has been especially this year when I have been able to become friends with a lot more people via Twitter and on this Blog so thank you for making my year a lot brighter through sunny and rainy times. The Blue Blog will continue its journey into a new and, hopefully, a better year than the last. Glad tidings to all of you…

…and a happy new year!

Blue Reviews: What’s New Page

Hey there!

Before I begin reviewing in this post, I would like to introduce you to a wider experience with ‘Blue Reviews’. Before I just reviewed monthly parties that come and go all the time. Now I have decided to review other stuff too! This could be a particular topic in Club Penguin. It could be an update to something. It could even be a Blog! I thought that expanding on this topic would introduce you to much more content because I review all sorts of things so I thought it was time to make this addition to my ‘Blue Reviews’.

In my party reviews, I give a score out of ten however other stuff I review will just be my thoughts to keep it brief and personal. You can feel free to write your thoughts on the ‘What’s New’ page since everyone has their own opinions. Now, here is my ‘Blue Reviews What’s New Page’!

After several weeks of waiting for the (postponed) update to the Club Penguin Blog, it is finally here! The ‘Club Penguin Blog’ is now just one segment of the What’s New page, where everyone can stop by and see the latest news. The benefit of this update was to organise posts into different categories so navigation is a lot easier; it also looks neat visually! Below is what the page looks like when you first arrive.

Club Penguin What's New Page

So what is new with this page? Well, now each post has a thumbnail so players can view an image preview on what the post is about. There are also new icons that show you what category the post is in. In this case, the pencil icon represents a blog post whereas the newspaper icon represents a ‘Club Penguin Times’ post. These categories can also be viewed in the new sidebar on the right along with ‘Latest Posts’ and ‘Video’ content.

I Have Joined RiffyCP!

Yes, it is true!

Hey there!

Today I have been very excited about my first post on RiffyCP. I had been recruited a few days ago by Riffy8888 and Happyblue128, and to me, it felt like an honour to accept the offer. I knew that they were hiring authors but I never knew that I would be one of the lucky few to be invited.

RiffyCP is a popular Club Penguin Cheats website so it is definitely a different experience for me. The Blue Blog is all about blogging from another perspective from any other website however what I will be producing on RiffyCP, in the future, are update posts that are relevant to Club Penguin news. It is good practice for me so I am glad that I took the opportunity to do something unique from what I usually do – all things unique!

I would like to thank Riffy8888 and Happyblue125 for inviting me and I hope that my experience will be awesome with an amazing team. Look out for my posts on RiffyCP and check out my introduction/news post here! I may also be responsible for some page updates on the website to keep it fresh. Hopefully I would get round to updating some of the fun pages on RiffyCP to make it an enjoyable visit for anyone.

Thank you for reading this little update and I hope you are as thrilled as I am!

Community Collab: #OurDisneyInfinity

Hey there!
Disney Interactive are currently holding a Players Pick where the community decide what the next Disney Infinity character should be. There is a poll on the Disney Blog where only a selection of characters are randomly chosen for people to vote for. However the vote is much more open as the team are also counting votes from social media. Using #OurDisneyInfinity will count as a vote as long as you obviously say who you want to join Disney Infinity.
A lot of the Club Penguin community (including me) are big fans of Disney since the game is amazing and some of the minds behind Club Penguin are involved with the game. As a loyal community to Club Penguin, we can use our support to help Club Penguin to be included inside Disney Infinity. Wouldn’t it be great to see Rockhopper waddling around with Captain Jack Sparrow to help defeat Davy Jones? Or would it be even cooler to see Herbert join forces with Darth Vader for the ultimate showdown in the toy box? There are endless possibilities in this game and Club Penguin could have potential in making it even more infinite with our voices heard.
If you are on social media, be sure to use #OurDisneyInfinity to help spread the word and suggest different ideas related to Club Penguin. This is a great opportunity to get creative since there is finally a chance for Club Penguin to join a game where imagination is only the limit. Retweeting on Twitter, liking on Facebook/Instagram can also make a difference so make sure you support the supporters with this campaign!
Lets collaborate and make this happen!
