Happy Turkey Day everyone! Did you know that the average thanksgiving turkey weighs between 14 and 28 pounds!? Neither did I! As you know, my contest for the Ninja Pig companion codes has just ended and I will be announcing the winners later on in the post as well as some thanksgiving stuff and final words as to why I must leave the community again but this time for good...
Thanksgiving 2012. What an amazing year it has been thus far. I have made many new friends in the community as well as gotten to learn so much from our amazing leaders. I am sad to say this but I must leave the community once again but this time, for good. I have finally decided that it is more important to work on my schooling and focus on my IRL life so I can be successful in life. Don't get me wrong, I loved Wizard101 and Pirate101, but I just don't have the time for them anymore. This thanksgiving, I want to say thanks for a few things.
Thank you for this amazing community of ours.
Thank you to you, my blog readers, who have stuck with me for 2 long years.
Thank you to all my friends who have stuck by my side through my time in the community.
Thank you to each and everyone of you for making the community what it is today.
Thank you to KingsIsle for working hard on Wizard101 and Pirate101 and making them the best MMO's ever!
I am so lucky to have been a part of this amazing community for the past 2 years and I am so honored to have worked with so many of you on many different things and it really has impacted my life for the better. I don't want to blabber on forever like I did in my first Closing Down & Quitting For Good post, but you all have impacted my life in one way or another and for that, I thank you.
As I am typing this, I really don't know how to put my feelings into words because the way you have all impacted me is just so strong and has shaped me to be the mature person I am today. You have all taught me leadership skills, management skills, and people skills which I know will help me for the rest of my life.
I just wanted to take this moment to thank you for the amazing ride and the great times we have shared.
Now, onto the contest. As you know, I was originally giving out 5 exclusive Ninja Pig companion codes but then I added a $10 Pirate101 Gift Card when I reached 200 followers but seeing as I am now leaving, I decided to spoil you all one last time and I added a $20 Wizard101 Gift Card! The winners have been chosen and they go as follows. (Note: the first 5 get a Ninja Pig companion code and the last 6th winner gets the $10 Gift Card and the 7th winner gets the $20 Gift Card.)

Congratulations to all! You will be emailed your codes today. Thank you all for helping me reach 203 followers and allowing me to hit a whopping 69,000 views! Anyways, I really appreciate all you guys have done to support my blog and other blogs and when I leave you with this final message, I bet you to take it to heart.
There are other bloggers out there. New bloggers with amazing talent but no one recognizes them. Please go check out all the amazing blogs in the community and follow one every now and then or leave them a nice comment because trust me, it will make their day. Also, if you blog, remember that as a blogger, you should blog because you enjoy it. Not because you want to gain something out of it. Remember, you can't spell fansite without fan.
I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving and that you all continue to enjoy gaming for years to come.
For the last time, this is Blaze Shadowhorn signing off.
