Well, where do I start? Oh, yes! When I, Magic Sinker had finally joined Discord due to some other awesome sites such as Tall Cactus’ Poptropica Blog, Clawtropica, The PHB, and the PSB. When I finally made my account, I talked to Purple Claw a bit, and on the second of January 2017, the idea of starting a blog was born.
I made poptropicanonpoptropica.wordpress.com, but that name didn’t really have a musical ring to it, and it sounded (to me) like a Poptropican’s son. People of Poptropica Blog also had the Pop Blog domain and site title name taken, and so did the POP blog by Mia and Lilly, so I deleted that blog. Then, on 10th January, I posted the first blog post on the Poptastic Blog!
I made names for all the days of the week, which I bet you’ve already seen, and on 14th January 2017, I posted about having the best Valentine’s Day party. Looking back, I was really bad at posting, and desperate, that I posted about Valentine’ Day a literal month before Valentine’s Day. I kept looking on other, more famous blogs for ideas, and looking at the Creators’ Blog for news, while also advertising the blog on Discord, and Twitter.
I was inactive from 15th January to 9th February, I still have no idea why. That was the time where I refused to continue alone, and had to hire someone. So I got one of my best friends, BraveBurger, to join the blog. Then, Greedy Clown joined after her.
It was April Fools’ Day, the day BraveBurger and I had been preparing for (IRL and on the blog) for two weeks straight. I made an awesome header for the day, and I hope I convinced you guys (other blogs also had wicked cool fools, such as popfeedz.wordpress.com), but meh, the past is the past, YOLO!
I was inactive until, like, the second-to-last day of April. Then, in the first week of May, I had an idea for a new FanFic (The old one was the Adventures of Magic Sinker, man, I was inexperienced), United Force! We got a copyright sometime after that, and nothing fun happened for some time. The leaks started coming out, I start falling asleep, jk. The, the POP blog had an amazing idea for PoptropiCon IRL!
Finally, Worlds came out! I was so excited, but there was a glitch that didn’t let me play Poptropica Worlds online, Firefox or Chrome, and on the phone and tablet, I was bleached. But, I didn’t let this put me down, I kept posting about Poptropica Worlds. Not much happened next, until I was asked to be an author on the Brainy Pop Blog! Thanks to the BPB team for admitting me.
Nothing much happened, and Brave Burger kept on filling in for me since I was really inactive due to excess schoolwork and NaNoWriMo, but we made it until the end of the year! On January 10th, it was our blog’s first anniversary. I was overjoyed! And I still am.
Since then, my Bleachy Boy of a Poptropican has been fixed, my art has improved drastically, and I can’t wait for what the future holds for us as a team! Thank you all for reading this page, and we hope you visit again!
