Keep on Smiling!

Hello, everyone!

Club Penguin has done a great job at entertaining its penguins for (more or less) eight years. The question is: what about the three remaining years? From 2014, parties have been noticeably lacklustre which means that, for us, we may not be having as much fun as we had back then. And that gives us the right to go wild about complaining, am I right? Not really. Did you know that Club Penguin is working on something big? I am sure you did know that! I’m afraid that big things like the project they are working on, currently, require some sacrifices. We are lucky that Club Penguin hasn’t sacrificed its life, but instead its quality. We can still play the game! The whole Club Penguin community have a massive online game still in grasp, and it has come to a time when we don’t know what else to do with it anymore. Maybe it is time to revisit some techniques that have been pushed away in history. Maybe it is time to grant your sceptical ego a rest while we keep on smiling, together!

In today’s Waddle Guide (it sure has been a while), it is time for me to share with you some tips and suggestions that may help you with your online experience of Club Penguin. To be fair, everyone – including me – has been getting bored of the parties lately. It doesn’t help when they are augmented over a couple of months either. Funnily enough, we don’t need these parties anymore. Yes, they may be Club Penguin’s most important and advertised feature of the game. Yes, they offer new experiences to the island. But anyone can conjure up new experiences, am I right? Indeed, I am.

Club Penguin players, I hope you will find this post helpful and hopefully you will be enlightened by my ideas that can make your Club Penguin legacy something to remember. Let’s begin!

Be the party animal!

Statistically, over 80% of Club Penguin’s audience, on average, log on to the game for less than 10 minutes (I totally did not just make that up). That is not a satisfying statistic. It proves that so many players are getting bored; all they do is log on, see what’s new and log off. Club Penguin is about waddling around and meeting new friends. Well, it was about that originally. Most of the older audience should still live by this motto so don’t be afraid to get the party started. If you see a penguin lifelessly present in your chatroom, get them to dance or tell you about their favourite things. In other words, act compassionately. You may not behave like this usually but, when you are living online, you can get away with being the best person you can be. On Club Penguin, you can exaggerate it even more because (why not?!) you are a penguin!

Club Penguin allows you to conversate with anyone! You have access to emotes and the speed chat function. You even have the will to communicate hand coordinated messages providing that they can bypass the chat filter (if you know what I mean). Club Penguin is not just a game; it is also a party that is waiting to be kicked off! How about you be the party animal? I am almost 100% sure that at least one penguin will join in with you. If they don’t, you are clearly freaking them out. Do not over-do it!

friends-2Unite the server!

What is Club Penguin without a little bit of roleplay? On Club Penguin, you have the chance to let your inner child run wild. If you want there to be a dark force awakening, let there be one and warn your fellow peers that they will come and attack you. Tell them to hide somewhere and convince the server to rendezvous in one chatroom. It may sound cruel but what is there to blame other than your “overreactive imagination”? Managing to gather as many penguins as possible is something impressive, and it will naturally influence other penguins to go along with the story.

Club Penguin Space do an excelling job at this so I thought that promoting it, even more, will result in more surprises for players online. It is something fun to witness. I guarantee that the conflicting imaginations from every penguin the room will progress the story in many, odd directions! It – certainly – brings a smile to your face and it makes you feel like you have achieved something. Moreover, other penguins are likely to appreciate it because we all know that nothing ever goes on in their average, penguin lives. You can be the hero and inspire other penguins to do what you do. Of course, you can even be the villain. Do whatever your heart desires!

Little acts of kindness!

Did you know that making someone else’s day also makes your day too? If you see a penguin with vibrant hair or a penguin with a cute puffle, remember that it doesn’t cost a penny for you to acknowledge and compliment on these things. Just think. Saying something kindwinter-penguin-female to someone can boost their self-esteem. You can save a person from having a bad day; all it takes is a couple of seconds! Little acts of kindness can make you
feel like a better person and, most importantly, it benefits the lives of other people too. Do not restrict yourself to online only. Be kind and compassionate to people you know in real life or to a random stranger who inspires you. Again, I am sure a smile will appear on their face. Everyone knows how contagious smiling can so don’t be surprised to find yourself doing the same thing.

Take a step forward!

I mentioned earlier that parties are no longer a priority to Club Penguin. As right as I am, that cannot stop a creative community from organising their own. Any tweeting penguins out there know, for a fact, that we love a good party. Almost daily, when I log onto Twitter, I see invitations going out to every single penguin. You may have seen ‘CP Around The Clock’, ‘Club Penguin United’ and birthday invitations flying around your Twitter Timelines. In the past, there have been extraordinary events such as ’31 Days of CP’ and the ‘Club Penguin Elections’. ‘Rare Records’ was an event created by myself; it was a celebration of music. Events like these portray dedication that the community is willing to give for its game. That is why Club Penguin has an amazing community.

Interestingly, it is not that difficult to prepare an event of your own. It would help you out a lot if you had access to some form of social media, like Twitter so that you can promote it to other players. You can celebrate anything you want. The more unique it is, the better! Taking this step forward and offering a new experience to players of the game is a courageous and scary thing to do but it will make a lot of penguins smile. Because everyone in the Club Penguin community is caring, everyone will support you. There is nothing to worry about regarding this since the community is appreciative of these events or parties. The key to an event is always the enjoyment. Sometimes, things may not go your way, but as long as it keeps the community entertained, you will have succeeded!

That is all of my tips, that I had in mind for this post, covered! I am hoping that at least one of them inspired or motivated you to become a happier penguin. Now, since this post is all about smiling, I cannot finish this post without leaving you with something that will bring a smile to your face. Are you ready for a little bit of magic?

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!

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!

Happy Earth Day!

Hello everyone!

I would like to wish everyone a happy Earth Day! It is a shame that Club Penguin did not host any event related to this – like they usually do – however I am really liking the Cave Maze at the moment! Instead, why not celebrate Earth Day by wearing the Monkey Costume or dressing up as an animal! It is lovely to see the support Club Penguin has carried out to help around the world.

If you haven’t heard already, we have managed to unlock over 50,000 Monkey Costume which does mean that Disney and Club Penguin have helped to raise $50,000 for the improvement of Monkey habitats in Cambodia, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka! That is amazing if you think about it!

Well done to the community for also making this possible! We have been very generous to the world around us and that is something to be proud of this Earth Day! Go Monkeys!

What are you going to do this Earth Day? I am going to pick up any litter I see and encourage others to do so! Let me know what you are going to do to help the environment in the comments below!

Thanks for reading and Waddle One!
