CP Around The Clock: Success

Hello, everyone!

CP Around The Clock kicked off at 12:00pm (PST), on server Marshmallow, and it ended 24 hours later. This 24 hour party was outstanding! That’s right; 24 hours – straight! Who knew this was possible?

In the Summer of 2016, Daisydoo14 created CP Around The Clock for the fun of it. Also, considering it was the Summer, she acknowledged that more people would be free to take part in this event. For its first debut, the event was successful! A lot of people found it fun, which is the main objective of this event. However, 24 hours of Club Penguin is as difficult as it sounds; not every hour was fully occupied.

To celebrate New Year’s of 2017, Daisy decided bring back CPATC. It was at this one, I became more interested. I managed to reserve and hour and everyone was pumped for it. Unfortunately, this particular event didn’t go far.

Bots. And a lot of them.

Someone wanted to ruin the fun, so they deployed several bot penguins across the party – and they were almost unstoppable. I never got to host my hour because of these bots. It was so cruel of them to do this because CPATC is not your ordinary event. It takes a lot of time to prepare it. It is such a shame that one penguin can just ruin that within a matter of seconds.

So, CPATC was officially cancelled during its run.

Daisy was devastated. So was I. I tried my best to keep it going but everyone was tired of the bots. We ended up giving in which made the bots the new worst enemy to our community.

A month later, I proposed an idea to Daisy. During January, I created the So Long CP project. I was determined to revive CPATC from its plunge and I wanted to make it successful again. Daisy and I negotiated and, before long, the event was placed into my flippers. At the time, I was very excited, but the fear of bots never escaped my mind. Daisy warned me about the stress this caused her; I started to feel a bit nervous. On the other hand, I was very determined and I believed that incorporating this event into the So Long CP project would make it even better!

Two months later, CP Around The Clock made its third debut. And it blew me away.

The stress of finding just as many people as last time was higher than I anticipated and there was a lot of drama involved before the event kicked off. I took on board that every host during this event had to be someone I could trust and rely on. For CPATC to be successful, it needs dedication from the community. It costed a few friendships of mine to find the dream team for this event, and it paid off -luckily! Continue reading

Operation: Shadow Annoucement

Hello, everyone!

An unexpected threat has been traversing the island, terrorising penguins. Some describe it as a shadow; something invisible; something invincible. The EPF are currently investigating the matter. We have already been warned about this threat. Ever since Camp Penguin, there has been some suspicious rumours about a shadow and a rumour about a penguin named “Be Ready”. 

He is – indeed – an agent… And he was warning us. Some of us didn’t care. Now, we face the consequences…

operation-shadow-official-logo

The EPF are initiating Operation: Shadow. To protect all penguins on the island, they have been negotiating with us (the So Long CP team). As of today, this operation lies within all of our flippers. The So Long CP project is now preparing for a mighty “so long” as we aim to capture the threat and restore peace to the island. All agents are being recruited to take part in this operation, although it is a dangerous one.

Over the next few weeks, there will be important assignments that will lead us to victory. Jet Pack Guy is the leader of communications, so he will be sending out Spy Phone mission notifications in the near future – and it is vital we complete them, for the island’s sake. Jet Pack Guy has already attempted to suspend Iggy Fest. Iggy Fest will actually be taking a detour. This is because there will not be many penguins, with a membership, to show off their igloos. The EPF suggested that we play a game of Hide-and-Seek to pass the time. Though, we will endeavour to visit as many igloos as possible too!

jet-pack-guy-message
EPF assignments will look like this. Most of them will include a date and time, corresponding to the mission. You can keep track of these on the blog.

For now, the EPF have assigned us to warn you about this peculiar shadow. The suspect was able to secretively infiltrate Camp Penguin last week, which is a risky warning. Be Ready claims that this shadow is watching us all – everywhere. Please lock your igloos (and your backyards), have your spy phone notifications turned on, be cautious of everywhere you go, and (most importantly) be ready.

Finally, we have a video to share with you all. Note: all content has been captured with island surveillance cameras. Please watch the video and share it with your friends; everyone needs to be aware of this.

Stay tuned for the launch of this operation in March. Make sure you share this post with your friends so that we can help save the island together! Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below. Thank you for reading.

Waddle On!

Being Blue

Hello, everyone!

Have you ever had one of those strange moments where you think about your future? When you gaze deep enough, you start to fantasise a future that is different, but realistic enough to make you want to start climbing a ladder towards it. I ask you this because I am curious about change and how much it can motivate us in life. Funnily enough, I have had one of these moments; it has lasted for a while, though!

As you know, this is a post on a website called The Blue Blog. It is a blog – that is blue? Sad blue? Or, just blue…blue? Well, that’s up for your interpretation. The fact is, this blog is meant to be something truly unique. I guess that is a generic term for most blogs in this world. Although, in the Club Penguin community, the way blogs are perceived is a lot more distorted. This is just an odd blog which explores an imaginative world of penguins. Funny.

Ever since I made this blog, I had a vision in mind. Such a surprise, I know! Now, let me ask you a question? Would you ever associate this blog with Club Penguin, if you saw the name of it for the first time? You probably wouldn’t. This is probably why my blog has ended up being a lost alien. My original vision was to be different and to make a blog that is authentic and personal. That didn’t really pan out. As you’ve likely noticed, 3 years later, I am still blogging about Club Penguin, even though it has no relevance to my blog.

Well, you have got to start somewhere.

I like to think that Club Penguin has been the first few steps of a steep staircase. The steep staircase is my unknown and great future. Club Penguin has helped me into the blogging world. I happen to be very passionate about it, so Club Penguin has always been a strong focus to keep my blog fuelled on. Within these last 3 years, I have seen my literature grow into something more mature and the metamorphosis of my posts has been fascinating to see. You and I have been witnessing the jump between a 13-year-old and a 16-year-old. And it’s really made a difference! Continue reading

Iggy Fest

Hello, everyone!

The next So Long CP event is going to be…

iggy-fest-logo

What is Iggy Fest?

Iggy Fest is going to be a tremendous event that is simply a celebration of igloos. Every penguin, on Club Penguin, has one and you can do a lot with them (if you’re a member). That is why they are such a big deal. Igloos are something personal and unique. I always love seeing the vast variety of designs so we need to visit as many of them as possible! Igloos deserve to be shared, which is why Iggy Fest is going to make that happen!

How will it work?

Everyone will meet up at the Snow Forts, to begin with. After about 5 minutes, we start to visit igloos. There is not a strict system, so the way it works is you have to keep requesting for your igloo to be shown. I guarantee that we will be able to visit loads of them! If this were the case, we need to spend around 2 minutes (maximum) in each igloo. 2 minutes is enough to take in the glory!

Is there a theme?

Funnily enough, you do not need to decorate your igloo in a particular way. If you have a really special igloo, that means a lot to yourself, share it with everyone. The whole point of this event is to witness how authentic the Club Penguin community is. However, Iggy Fest is not just a bland igloo festival. There will be an igloo contest (just like the old days)! It is not compulsory to participate in but there is an epic reward. If you win the contest, you claim 12 Club Penguin items! The theme of the contest is your “favourite memory” from Club Penguin. Obviously, you cannot judge an igloo by its purpose, but you can judge it for its creativity and authenticity. To win this contest, you need to be different.

How will the contest work? 

The contest will be taking place at the end of the event. After an hour of visiting so many igloos, you can decide to join us at the Snow Forts, again, where we will be meeting the contestants. To join the contest, you need to sign up in advance. In fact, you have to use the comments section below. Just state your penguin name! Anyone is eligible to sign up – as long as you do it before 00:00, 25th February!

Where are the details?

Iggy Fest has its own invitation which you are free to share on social media. You can also expect recent news and updates on Iggy Fest if you search up #IggyFest and #SoLongCP on Twitter. Official updates will be posted by @Blue21102 and @SoLongCP. Again, feel free to tag your tweets with these hashtags to promote the event. It would be greatly appreciated! Below is the invitation for Iggy Fest!

I hope that many of you will be able to come along to this event and celebrate how awesome igloos really are!

Camp Penguin – Highlights

Hello, everyone!

Camp Penguin was an interesting experience! A lot of you came along, which was fantastic to see, and I was able to connect with most of you really well. I think that the party was a definite success, so thank you for turning up and making memories with me and the team! In this post, I want to briefly discuss my favourite moments and share a few pictures with you all. Luckily, I also managed to record the event as well but this video will be coming later.

Firstly, I hope you all enjoyed Camp Penguin. There were no bots, except for a couple of mischievous penguins towards the beginning. As soon as I logged on, I couldn’t help but smile; all of the penguins were gathered around the campfire and it made the atmosphere cosy and friendly – which was what the event was aspiring to be! I waddled over to join you all and then I got my whistle out to get everyone’s attention. It felt awesome to use it! We all started off with a couple of stories and we even got to know penguins more. Even though this failed slightly, we “all said something about ourselves”. Yeah, it didn’t got perfectly but I was laughing.

Another key moment was the story time at the Forest. I took some inspiration from a recent ‘Megg Meet-up’ and told everyone to get in a line. The idea of it was to create a random and wacky story by inputting one word – each – into the story. I cannot remember it all but I remember there being an “apron ice cream strawberry”. Please, don’t ask – it was the magic of the chat filter! I actually really enjoyed this and had a laugh with a few of you.

Moreover, there was the marshmallow roast which went swimmingly. Okay, we burnt our marshmallows but that is only because we were getting to know each other too much! I asked everyone what their favourite things were; these questions ranged from parties to puffles. It was terrific to see the contrast in out views but there were some wow moments when some of us said the same thing. Now I know that someone else who misses the Medieval Kingdom… Continue reading
