So. I haven’t written a blog in a really. Long. Time. Sorry about that. But my friend (Summer, you’re awesome) convinced me to….so here goes.
So, in July of 2011, J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series (duh. What rock have you been under?), announced a new Harry Potter based website, called Pottermore. Being the Harry Potter nerd that I am, I had a mini heart attack. She said there would be a “magical quill challenge”, where 1,000,000 Harry Potter fans could try to get into the BETA testing. Unfortunately, I was at summer camp (BEST FRIKKIN SUMMER CAMP EVER) during the magical quill challenge, so I missed my opportunity.
I didn’t freak out though, because it was supposed to be open for everyone at the end of September. September came, and went. Pottermore status: still BETA. Oh but, yay! Pottermore will be open by the end of November! Only a few months from now. November came, and went. Pottermore status: still BETA. Oh look! It’s supposed to be open at the beginning of January! January came, and–you get the point.
FINALLY. FINALLY. It was confirmed that Pottermore would be open to the public at the beginning of April. I checked every day, until finally, POTTERMORE IS OPEN. I wasted no time in signing up. I got the conformation email, I’m all excited, and it says, “You’re on the first step to be able to explore Pottermore! Just wait for your next email!” I’m like, okay, I can handle that. The next email comes two days later. “Just click this link, and we’ll send you the final conformation email.” I’m like, THANK GOD. After that everything goes smoothly. But really Jo? Pottermore was 8 months late opening. I expect more from you.
Oh, and just to let you know, RAVENCLAW FAH LIFE.
