Onwards Into Round Two!

Hello everyone!

Right now I am so delighted to have been informed that The Blue Blog has made it into round two of the TKCPCheats’ exclusive, annual ‘Penguin Talent Awards’! While it lasted, I think round one went really successful for me with some fluctuation within the top three of my category – ‘Best Blog’. Never did I ever think, before this event ever started, that I would be voted for in this category. I find it so shocking because I just never realized how much support a lot of you give me and that has made me so happy. Just to let you know, I always appreciate every single on of you who support me and I am thrilled that you enjoy what I do on this blog.

So now that we enter round two, I just want to wish everyone – who has made it – massive amounts of luck! Lots and lots of people deserve to get awarded for their efforts in the community so all I can do is wish you all luck. It feels good to be in round two, huh? Well done to everyone who has been nominated and for the people who didn’t make it to round two, you still have your supporters and I am so glad that you got the chance to be a nominee so I am proud of you all! It is such an honour to even be in this competition so well done and keep up the hard work with whatever you do!

To end this post, I am just going to say one thing. I would appreciate it if any of my supporters would vote for me in the competition. I would hate to force anyone so I understand that you may have other blogs (you think deserve the award) in mind. Even if I don’t make it to the finals, I would still feel honoured and so happy to have discovered how supportive you all are to me. Round two may not seem that special to you but it means a lot to me and to get this far, in the competition, is literally unbelievable! If you want to vote for my blog, then please go here and vote for ‘https://bluesblogcp.wordpress.com/blog/‘.

Thank you for bringing me this far and good luck to everyone who remains in the Penguin Talent Awards.

Is this the “Best Blog”?

Hello everyone!

I have some exciting news to share with you all. So last night, I was surprisingly greeted by TKCP Cheats. They announced that I was an official nominee for the ‘Best Blog’ category in their fifth annual ‘Penguin Talent Awards’. Firstly, this is my first time – ever – for being nominated for an award so I am so happy and excited. Secondly, I am shocked and surprised. When I looked at all the other nominees in that category, I found some of the top blogging legends out there in the community such as: Trainman1405, Riyita and Saraapril. And then there was me.

As well as feeling honoured, I felt overwhelmed by these amazing people and I thought “do I really deserve a spot?”. It has been two years since I started this blog and it has been an amazing journey. Though I have strived for different things unlike other bloggers in this category who always post updates, when they can, and that is why they succeed. I, on the other hand, would love to do that but I just cannot race with time; there is always so much going on in my life that I am always unsure when I can blog. That is why I am never a frequent blogger but when I do get the chance, I love it and I hope that every post I do is of high quality. So I feel so honoured to have even been nominated in this category even though my blog is sometimes at rest.

Very recently, I have tried to post as much as I could in the holiday but the next several weeks consists of exams and revision so you may not see a lot of me until late July.

So what I would like to say is that I would appreciate any of your votes. I dare to be forceful because I know that a lot of the other nominees in this category are so talented. Tech70, for example, produces very interesting posts once or twice a month and that is someone who I can relate to. Then there are the BIG bloggers who I cannot imagine competing against. I also know a lot of other people in the other categories who I think deserve awards but there is so many of you that I know. So I support you all! I wish you luck to everyone who has been nominated for an award.

If you like reading what I create, if you like the videos I make, if you like any of the content I produce then I would really appreciate your vote. You can vote for ‘The Blue Blog’ right here!

I have also created a banner that you can use to support The Blue Blog!

Best Blog PTA

If you have twitter, you can also use the hashtag: #PTA2016 to tune in to the latest news and feed on the awards.

Thank you very much for all of your support over these last two years. I am so surprised and it is all because of you. I had never been nominated for these kind of events – ever – so you certainly cheered me up and you made me feel special. You are all the best! 😉

The Blue Blog: Two Years

Hello everyone!

730. This number defines how many days it has been since I first started Club Penguin blogging. I find it hard to believe. I am thinking about how things have changed; my attitude, my goals, my perspective. Two years. That is 730 days of my life. I was 13 years old and now I am 15 years old. Things have changed. Unbelievable. I am so happy.

The Blue Blog - Two Years 2I find it productive to look at the past. It’s a well known thing to focus on just the future and to forget about the past but the past hold so many treasures. I look back to 17th May 2014 when I just joined Twitter; I was anxious, overwhelmed and shy. Then I think of a day after that – on the 18th – when I was hired on LegoPuffleCP Cheats. Within a day, I was already beginning a career with potential. And so a couple of days after that I was inspired. ‘Blue’s Blog’ was born. Within 4 days, I leaped to new heights. So glad I did that now. I am still on my journey to progress as a Club Penguin blogger but if I could have warped to the future back then, I would not have seen something this good. In fact, I most likely would have given up on the way to this height. But now that I am here, I have a perfect understanding because I am living it. It is nothing exceptional when you compare it to other bigger things. That doesn’t matter to me because I am proud. What I have achieved over the past two years is something very special to me. I sailed through thick and thin, rain and shine but – most importantly – through an adventure that has had a huge impact on my life.

I am not talking about money at all. Not a single penny have I earned for 730 days. But that doesn’t matter at all. What does matter, is what I have created and how it has influenced the community. That is what leads to success, in my eyes. Although there are huge amounts of people who have never even heard of this blog ever, I know I have strife. I know that there are a few of you who read my posts and I hope that they have inspired you.

Coin Bag

Blogging from a dissimilar perspective is a bit weird, especially if you are a penguin from the Club Penguin Community. Therefore I understand how differently people may treat my blog. Whereas other Club Penguin sites tend to orbit Club Penguin news and updates, my blog orbits deeper and with more depth, comes imagination. That is the core. It is how I conjure up my posts. They may not sound convincing but they are unique; difficult to define. And I like that. It gives me identification and freedom to write anything I want, when I want. Lucky enough for me, it has driven me this far but the fuel is you. The people who have supported me on my journey have granted me access to execute new levels of blogging.

So what have been the results? Several new categories such as Island Discussion (which has exceeded 25 posts), Waddle Guides, Community Collab, Blue Reviews and Coffee Break. New features and pages that have added more content to my Blog. My own YouTube Channel which is currently about to step up higher than it has been for a while. Personal achievements that have acquired me new skills and responsibilities; these have all made me a better person, socially. New friends that care about me and help to create memories together.

A life that has become much tougher – an achievement that has taught me new things to do with responsibility. Even though it may sound negative, turning it into a positive thing breaks down the barrier! And blogging for two years has involved a lot of barriers. Some of them I have broken, some in which I am still stuck behind, and those bigger ones in which I have had to patiently climb. Journeys are littered with these barriers and they keep coming when you least expect it. It’s a generic thing and so you have to prove your strength by overcoming them. Since I have surpassed many in my continuous journey, does that make me a stronger person than I was two years ago?

Well, I have more internet friends than ever, more experience to assist me with further barriers to come and a whole blog for me to smile at and cherish every time I look at it. So, I would say that strength is another achievement and the only way to gain it is to work for it. Two years ago, I would have shook my head if I had known about the stress and the struggles. Practically, blogging has changed my life in some way so I can’t imagine myself as proud as I am now. That is why you should just go for it even if you are unaware of what is ahead of you. It makes it even more exciting and exhilarating. Basically, it’s the definition of a blogger’s journey! It’s rewarding, I promise you.

So thank you very much for changing my life. I feel so privileged to have been playing a larger part within the Club Penguin Community for the last two years and it is you who I rely on. Thank you got being the fuel of my journey for two years and I plead you to never run out. As long as there is spirit and some fun, good work can be done. It has taken me two years to prove that because, now, I finally realize the crazy amounts of stuff I have been able to achieve and it is literally unbelievable to me. No, I am not talking to a crowded audience and no, I am not economically rich. However I am becoming rich with experience and further I shall journey on to gain more experience. And maybe one day… I will reach an end that I am happy with.

But I find the journey the most valuable part. Let it continue…

Sharing Creativity

Hey everyone!

Today I have a Waddle Guide for you to read and I think it is an interesting topic which will, hopefully, inspire you to open your minds more. One of the best things about the Club Penguin team is that it allows such creativity to be noticed and showcased. For example, they offer everyone in the community to submit fan art for monthly ‘Featured Fan Art’ videos. There is also the legendary Club Penguin Times Newspaper which encourages talented penguins from around the community to submit in their own jokes, fan art and a question for Aunt Arctic. I find that the Club Penguin Times is another way to help people get involved and this is yet another method from the team. What does this tell us? It tells us that Club Penguin care about it’s community and try to find many way to value everyone the best they can.

Let’s think about more examples. There is the Penguin of the Week award that is given to one lucky penguin who was nominated by one or more of their friends. I think this one is special since it shows everyone how valuable friendship is and helps the community to appreciate things more such as helpful penguins who do something special in aid of someone else. Another example includes recognition for Club Penguin Blogs. I do believe that the team check out as many Blog as they can to receive feedback and to take in any notes on anything we blog about. This helps to motivate people (like me) to blog more to you and to still keep on producing posts that are fun.

If we think more about in-game, some great hobbies to help share your creativity would be music making with SoundStudio and Igloo Designing. SoundStudio is an amazing game that helps you make music by using sampled tracks that are pre-made. However the combinations can be different every time because you can do a lot with SoundStudio. After you finish recording some music that you are proud of, people can like it which shows peer support online. Everyone loves visiting the Dance Club – thanks to SoundStudio – because there are some awesome tunes out there for people to hear and dance to. I recommend using SoundStudio more often if you love music!

Igloo Designing was covered in my last Waddle Guide however I think it is worth stating again that igloos are there for personality and creativity. Igloos show visitors what your penguin is like and your igloo is your own piece of land on Club Penguin where you can go wild and create anything you like. Again, you can gain likes from igloo decorating which is something great to be more aware of as it makes you feel proud and more recognised in such a BIG community.

Update – 15 . 05 . 15

Hello everyone!

I really apologise for the week absence on this Blog. It was not at all intended because I was one of the unlucky few who could not access Club Penguin for quite a while. I have emailed Club Penguin Support but before receiving a reply, I can now log back into Club Penguin! Yay! So now I can post again and I am happy to confirm that the One Year Of Blogging Party is still on! I am so excited! We are 3 days away until my awesome year with the Club Penguin Community started.

I am sorry again for the inconvenience. Stay tuned for more party related posts and perhaps a new Island Discussion too! Thank you for your understanding.

Waddle On!
