Our 500th Post!

Around the Spiral with Edward Lifegem

I'm surprised we made it to 500 posts! I really can't believe that its been more than two years and 500 posts later and I'm still wanting to blog another 500-1000 for all of you :) So many great things have happened on this blog, Wizard101 and Pirate101 since I started this blog. Here's a year by year schedule of all of the things I loved since I started blogging :)

2010

I started blogging in 2010, and most of my posts were about Celestia (Wizard101) that would be released soon and I was very excited about that. Most of my posts that year were about Celestia, new pets and my first parties on Wizard101. I would love to go back and do it all over again :) 

2011

2011 was a huge year, it was my first whole year of blogging and I've had some downs during that blogging period but I've had a lot of ups too! I hosted my first contest thanks to Autumn Dreamwalker, I started blogging again right after my hiatus from blogging and made 270+ posts that entire year. This isn't my favorite year of blogging though... look at 2012..

2012. 
MY FAVORITE YEAR SO FAR!

Like it says, this is my favorite year of blogging so far! I've had so many accomplishments thanks to all of you, this blog reached 100 followers, then 150 and then 200 followers in one year! All three of these were huge goals. Another goal was accomplished that I didn't mention, to have fun with you all. This year has been a fun year full of excitement :) Oh and lets not forget to mention becoming an official Pirate101 blog, I owe a huge thanks to Friendly Necromancer and the community management team and all of you. I wouldn't have submitted this site if it wasn't for you :) This site will remain a FANsite :) One more thing... Contests. Wow, I've had a lot more contests this year than any other year! I have a end of the year contest going on, an Admiral contest, a 500th post contest.... SURPRISE! This is for you, thank you so much for all of the great years of blogging and here's to more years of blogging!

I liked the "Beautiful Mooshu Scenery" because I think the skyways between worlds really are beautiful and breathtaking. I also think that it could possibly be KI's way of giving us a break from the regular grind to just enjoy the beauty of the graphics that MAKE the game.

looking forward to this contest

I really dont have a favorite post, I loved reading them all. But if I must choose one, it would be Account security (W101 UK&US). You have always been a huge supporter of the family friendly aspect of W101 and online safety. This post is important because you not only stress the importance of not giving out info, but you also link to all the official gameforge and kingsisle sites. Anyway, congrats on reaching 200 followers, and your 500th post all in the same day :) I have always loved your site and I am so pleased at how far you have come. Keep up the good work. :)

I am not entering the contest, but I just want to thank you for all you do in this community. Edward, you are an amazing friend, and an awesome blogger! 500 posts.. You're probably the only blogger I know that have reached this milestone, and every single post is interesting.
Here's to another great year of blogging!

-Chris.
