Hello, everyone! My name is Gentle Dolphin, and — man, it’s been a while since I posted something here…
It’s hard to believe that I left this site untouched for such a long while. I haven’t written a blog post here since last October, and the last time I posted art on the Pop Art Museum page was this past February. In case you don’t know where I’ve been, let me give a brief explanation of what I’ve been up to for the past few months.
Back in May 2018, I began my blogging journey here on this very website. Like a lot of other pop bloggers, blogging was just another way of expressing my love of Poptropica and interacting with other fans. I updated the site semi-frequently with posts about game updates and contests, along with some of my fan art.
Later that October, I was invited to become an author for the Poptropica Help Blog. This was the opportunity of a lifetime, so I accepted the invitation and joined the team. During my time on the PHB, I learned a lot of things about blogging and working with a team. I even got to play a big role in 2019’s April Fools Day prank. You can read my PHB posts here.
When I first started writing for the PHB, I originally planned to continue writing for GDPB (Gentle Dolphin’s Pop Blog); however, a mix personal events and waning interest led me to abandon the website for a while. Now, I am bringing GDPB out of hiatus and will start to update it more often! Maybe I’ll get around to adding content to the Fan Fiction page.
Now, let’s get to the big announcement: Gentle Dolphin’s Pop Blog is turning one year old this Sunday! To celebrate this occasion, I’ll finally post my “My Place in Poptropica” story. I’ve actually been writing it on and off for the past few months, but I figured that the anniversary would be the perfect time to post it. I hope you guys stay tuned for that when it comes out!
I didn’t want to have this post be all-text, so here’s a drawing of Gentle Dolphin and her cat Amy (short for Amethyst) ready for springtime.
I hope to keep this site going for a while, so leave some suggestions for what you would like to see on Gentle Dolphin’s Pop Blog. I’ve got a few things planned, but I’d like to know what you want to see in the future.
Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
