Goodbye, Club Penguin. Hello, Club Penguin Island!

3 02 2017

Holy smokes. When Snowy Owl made this site 10 years ago, I figured Club Penguin would be here forever. I never considered, given how popular the game was, that CP would go away, or become something different. But shows what I know, right? Club Penguin is closing March 29, 2017.

So goodbye, Club Penguin and all the penguin friends I made. Thanks for the parties and snowball fights. Especially, thanks for all the Connect Four games in the Ski Lodge.

Most important, thanks to all you penguins who visited and commented on our site. I swear, our mission guides are still the best you can find on the web! We spent so much time playing and replaying and replaying those missions just so we got everything right 🙂

Thanks to Snowy for letting me help him with this site, and thanks to Frothe Farkle for always checking in!

I look forward to seeing what Club Penguin Island is. It better have Connect Four!

Waddle on!

I worry how much I look forward to our blog snowing. It’s my favorite blogging time of the year!

Happy Holidays from behind the snowdrifts of the Abominable Times!

Waddle on!

I love when WordPress snows!

Probably more I should …

Happy Holidays from the wind-swept Abominable Times!

Waddle on!

Yip! One million hits!

11 09 2015

In 2007, when we made our first post, who knew our blog, originally about a then-empty server occupied by an upstart Club Penguin army, would one day get one million hits? Not Mr Snowball3, that’s for sure.

But we did!

Thank you to everyone who has visited and commented and made suggestions for how to make our blog better. Thank you, Snowy Owl/John/White Weasel, for allowing me to help on your Abominable blog. Thank you, Frothe Farkle, for always checking in. And thank you, Rebel Penguin Federation, for deciding it was a good idea to defend a server no one at the time visited!

After all this time, I still believe we have the best-written and most-helpful Club Penguin mission guides you can find on the web.

Waddle on!

“Well, way up north where the blog gets cold …”

It’s snowing on our blog? Woo hoo! Must be time to post!

This is my most favorite time, when WordPress snows.

Happy Holidays from the snowed-in Abominable Times!

Waddle on!

You’d think I would get tired of this. But no … I don’t.

It’s December, and our blog is snowing! Again! Who doesn’t love a snowy blog? Not Mr Snowball3!

Waddle on!

I look forward to December on WordPress more than any other month.

Why?

Our blog snows! And we don’t have to shovel it!

Move your pointer around to change which way the flakes drift!

Happy holidays to the penguins of Abominable!

Waddle on!
