First I'd like to offer my most sincere apologies about my large absence from the blogosphere. 'Real' Life has been quite busy, with new additions of sports, music, school, etc. It seems that I have been away from the realm of blogging for far too long, 3 whole months!
I'd just like to catch up a little and get back into the swing of things. I am sorry to say that I have officially quit Wizard101. After nearly 2 long years of playing, I find myself losing interest in the MMO phenom and think it's time to throw in the towel.
Over the course of my 'career' I have made over 100 great friends through the world of PvP, blogging, and the game itself. I'd like to thank my first-ever W101 friend Elizabeth Fairygem for helping thru nearly 4 worlds! Next to thanks is Dustin and David from W101 Info for giving me fantastic tips and helping me advertise my blog, I'll never forget that post you made about me! I'd also like to give some brownie points to the entire W101 community in whole! I've played numerous MMOs before W101, but never before have I experienced such a booming and welcoming community as Wizard101's. Wizard 101 Central is a great way to link up with your buds and the blogsphere is just fantastic! But really, my greatest thanks deserves to go to KingsIsle for creating this fantastic MMO and simply allowing all this community to blossom and explode into a beautiful flower! (Lol turd joke) If not for the community, I'd most definitely left the game years ago!
Now that I have announced that I am leaving the world of wizarding, I'd like to make ANOTHER announcement. Just a few tips to you MMO fanatics out there: Take a break from the game! I know you hear this ALL the time from family, friends, whatever, but really, taking a break allows your brain to settle in and really take in the beauty and possibilities of the world! For example, I used to be a W101 player ALL THE TIME. This didn't allow me to really look at the beauties of the world and such. Now that I have quit, I have already found new interests, like drawing and writing. I have even started reading more! Just my2cents, but I think it's not good to waste up precious time on the computer when you only have so long to live. (70-80 years might seem like a lot, but really time flies!)
Although I am quitting the gameplay world of w101, I'll still be checking in on blogs until I am very content with my decision. So far, so good! I'm going to keep blogging about things I think deserve recognition, so keep checking back for new posts! They just might not be about wizard101 anymore.
So, in a nutshell I'd like to thank the FANTASTIC! community of W101, the very game of W101, and the people IN the game. Thanks everyone! I hope to see you around!
