update

so as most of you have probably noticed, i haven't posted on this blog in several weeks.

the reason? i'm just not interested in animal jam anymore.

let's be honest, animal jam is dying. no new content is being added to the game. new animals? we've seen this scheme before. returning dens? boring. spike sales? disgusting. it's the same old story every time. i've simply grown out of the game.

wildworks knows this too. like, you walk into typically heavily-populated lands (take aldan for example) and you don't see as many jammers in the area as you did in, say, 2014. ''famous'' animal jam youtubers such as aparri and wisteriamoon have begun to show less and less interest in the game they make videos about. the community of animal jam on all sorts of social media platforms is losing members. i've noticed significantly less attention being paid towards animal jam in the recent past, and instead, the attention goes towards play wild.

people just don't think animal jam is fun anymore, and as much as i hate to admit it, i am one of those people.

i've found other hobbies - marvel, fortnite, sports, movies, etc. heck, i still play webkinz occasionally because even though there aren't as many people playing nowadays as there were in 2007, the people at webkinz still find ways to make the game enjoyable by releasing new content on a regular basis.

during the last couple of months when i was posting daily, blogging felt like a chore, and a chore is never what i intended blogging to be for me personally. it started out as a hobby, and now, six years later, i've grown up and found other things that i enjoy doing.

i'm going to be a junior in high school. i have (and will continue to have) more important things to do in life, like preparing for college by taking the act test, working hard at getting good grades, and learning how to get by on my own. i need to focus on getting a job and furthering high school tennis career. it sucks to get old but that's just how life is, i guess.

i'm not leaving forever. i'll still be running my little movie review blog i created in april, so please, if you want to talk to me, talk to me there. here's the link: cinematic thoughts

i'll still be on webkinz and chicken smoothie, though not as often. if you need my username for either of those games, leave a comment.

i'm also on fortnite, so if you want to squad up sometime, leave a comment.

i'm still not sure what i'm going to do with this blog. i am 100% for sure not going to delete it - i'd never forgive myself if i did. i'll try my best to post every now and then just to catch up with you guys.

thank you for all the memories. you all have shaped me to become the person i am today. animal jam was a huge part of my life these past six (soon to be seven) years, but this blog was an even bigger part of it.

for the last time (hopefully not the official last time, but for the last time in a while)...

Dire Wolves vs Saber Tooth Tigers

Hi Jammers! I spotted something a little interesting the other day.

In the latest Jamaa Journal, the page that introduces the dire wolves concludes with two questions referring to the relationship between the saber tooth tigers and the dire wolves:

"How will these ancient animals fare together?"
"Will they be allies, or adversaries?"

After doing some quick research, I discovered that saber tooth tigers and dire wolves actually lived in close proximity while they roamed the earth.

Later on, I logged into Animal Jam and noticed that the new homepage has a peculiar detail...


See the two banners? One has a saber tooth tiger on it, and the other has a dire wolf.

Is AJHQ hinting towards a battle between these two creatures, or perhaps an event similar to the VidCon games? Since VidCon is coming up soon, it would make sense to revamp it in a way because the games were so popular among the community.

What do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Bye!

DEBATE: Is the Animal Jam Community Failing?

For a lot of people, the Animal Jam community, as well as the game itself, seems rather lifeless. There are not enough new and exciting things occurring to keep the community thriving - if you know what I mean. Give your opinion on the topic above by commenting on this post. I would love to hear what you guys have to say.

Contemplate Your Life

Which letter is silent in the word ''scent'' - the S or the C?

If you get out of the shower clean, then how does your towel get dirty?

Why is it called a ''building'' if it's already been built?

If tomatoes are fruits, then is ketchup a smoothie?

If you're waiting for the waiter, doesn't that make you the waiter?

Why is a pizza box a square, the pizza is a circle, and the slices are triangles?

Why do we get IN a car but get ON the bus?

Why is it called ''chili'' if it's hot?

Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

If you crash your car on purpose, is it still an accident?

If Cinderella's shoe fit perfectly, then why did it fall off?

Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?

Why do alarm clocks go off when they're really turning on?

If your hot pocket is cold, then is it just a pocket?

National Geographic Is No Longer Partnered With WildWorks

*via DoomyPanda of the Animal Jam Stream*

The following letter was a response to an email sent by DoomyPanda in hopes of receiving official confirmation from WildWorks whether or not WildWorks and National Geographic had cut ties between their partnership.

"Hello,

We're so glad you think our game is awesome - we try!

National Geographic and Wildworks have mutually agreed to end the
license agreement for use of the National Geographic name and trademarks in association with the Animal Jam virtual world.

We hope this helps.

All the Best,
Nicole
AJHQ"

Adopt A Pet Series 3 and 4 Unboxing

Hey Jammers! In today's post, I will be reviewing four Adopt A Pet products - two from Series 3 (the cupcake houses), and, most recently, Series 4 (the spring cottages). Let's begin!

I'm sure you all have an idea of what the Adopt A Pet boxes look like, right? Can you believe they've been around for almost two years? That's crazy! The Animal Jam merchandise variety has expanded a lot since 2016.


The first house I will be opening is the pink and white cupcake.


I got a green and blue hippo! He's rare, too.


In the other cupcake house, I received an adorable pink lemur! He was rare as well.

And now, for the spring cottages!


The first cottage was home to a cute, purple kangaroo.


The second cottage had a praying mantis inside.

I really like the spring cottages: the 96 new pets you can find in them are all so adorable. The only thing that annoyed me was that they were a bit difficult to pop open and screw back on.

Thanks for reading, Jammers! Don't forget to enter the spring fashion show over on the contest blog!

Bye!

Dear ''Logged Out Message"

Image result for animal jam you were gone for too long and got logged out

Dear "Logged Out Message,"

Thither is nay right way to beginneth a message such as this, but I can nay longer encave these feelings. For years, I hast tucked aroint these traumatic thoughts in the back of mine mind, hoping yond the emotional, turbulent storm would passeth. And yet, the internal quarrel I hast been facing hath been an extensive one. I wast unsure of which ideas to act upon. To possess such qualities as bravery and courage is sore for the natural sir. But, in all honesty, thou wot very well what I am about to declare.

"Logged Out Message, " thither is nay denying yond we art both very different people. Thou see the dress as black and blue, while I see 't as gold and white. Thou see the glass half exsufflicate - I see the glass half full. I wish to continueth mine adventurous journeys of playing Animal Jam, but thou disagree. Countless times hast thou did seek to prevent me from playing the game; for example, I wast just about to unlock a treasure given to me by the wise Cosmo at the end of an Adventure, and thou maketh shift to pop up out of thin air as if 't be true thou wast a pixie. At the time, I refrained from expressing how thou did cause me to feeleth in spite of fear yond thou would taketh mine words personally. I nev'r did want to did hurt thou. In fact, 't is clear yond thither is not one sir on this earth yond dost not hast the cabability of mentally wounding another, intentional or not. Yet somehow, thou at each moment did do to me what I desire I nev'r did do to thou.

In summarization, things art not working out between the two of us. Our relationship wast nev'r at a peak. Marry, our relationship wast declining from the moment 't did do beginneth. I cannot declare yond I ever did do believe in us, nor can I declare yond I ever did do bethink 't would receiveth better. Life hath truthfully been an emotional rollercoaster these past few years, and the sharp, steep hills art increasing with incline as long as we art still together. I would envy to see both of us falleth to our dooms.         

Truly, I doth not believeth for one second yond thou art a lacking valor person. May I suggest taking thy ''popping-up'' hobby down a notch to avoid further damage to not only myself but others as well. I would eke asketh of thou to allow avid Animal Jam players such as I to enjoy their experience without unnecessary interruption. We simply cannot tolerate thy miching mallecho anymore. 

I desire thou taketh this letter into account and ponder the things which I hast did do sayeth. If 't be true thou doth so, I gage yond thy level of maturity wilt only groweth.         

Good day,

Shakespearean Naffy

RIP Brady's Expeditions

Greetings. Today I have some very sad news.

There is a chance you might have noticed this earlier, but if you haven't...

Well, let's just cut to the case - Brady's Expeditions is no longer with us.


*cue the depressing background music*

Honestly, though, it's a bit sad.

To refresh your memory, Brady's Expeditions was a video series starring none other than Brady Barr himself as he adventures through the wilderness. By answering questions and helping Brady along the way (reminds me of Dora the Explorer... haha), you could win cool prizes.

AJHQ removed Brady's Expeditions on the update of March 15, 2018, and I see no good reason as to why they did that.

Unless... it was because National Geographic and WildWorks are no longer partners.

*dun dun dun dun*

Anyways, thanks for reading. Feel free to pay your respects and say your goodbyes in the comments to Brady's Expeditions. Let me know if you need a handkerchief.

Bye! Oh, and don't forget to enter yesterday's contest!

Random Contest! (CLOSED)

Hey guys! I'm in need of some help and would like to host a mini contest in doing so. In the comments, explain the power of positive thinking. It doesn't have to be very long. Whoever gives the best spiel will win a secret prize - and believe me, it will be a good prize! Thanks!

EDIT: THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST HAS BEEN CHOSEN. I WILL NOT RELEASE THEIR USERNAME, BUT IF YOU WON, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! EVERYONE'S ENTRIES WERE EQUALLY AMAZING AND I AM SO PROUD OF ALL THE PARTICIPANTS!

Has WildWorks Cut Ties with National Geographic?

Ever since Animal Jam was first launched, the game held a partnership with National Geographic. Although, it has come to my attention that this partnership may no longer exist, thanks to a post by the wonderful DoomyPanda on her blog, the Animal Jam Stream.

In Doomy's post, she explains why she believes WildWorks may have cut ties with National Geographic after receiving a thought-provoking Jam-A-Gram from another Jammer, and goes on to list several pieces of evidence to back up her claims.

For example, the HD Television, as well as the majority of the other televisions that currently prevail in the game, display a small variety of ''channels'' when clicked on. The first channel to pop up is an image of the National Geographic Kids logo.


However, this is no longer the case. The National Geographic Kids logo has been replaced by the WildWorks logo.


Suspicious, don't you think?

Also, where once was a collection of animal facts and what not sponsored by none other than National Geographic in Gabby's Animal Hospital now lies an un-interactive array of animal posters, as well as... three mannequins!?


What the heck? The mannequins are promoting items that are sold at the shop just meters away... wait a minute... is this... ANOTHER CLICKY THINGY?

Why do we have TWO CLICKY THINGIES FOR THE SAME SHOP!?

Laziness at its finest, folks. Just think of all the other things that could have taken that empty spot, but NOPE! IT HAD TO BE MANNEQUINS!

Anyways, you get the main idea, right?

Additionally, unlike previous years, where the copyright statement at the bottom of the AJ screen included National Geographic now just says the following:


Fishy...

Despite all of this evidence, the ''Cool Banner'' item with the National Geographic logo on it can still be purchased in stores, and the Animal Jam page on the National Geographic Kids website is still accessible, though not from the homepage.

What do you guys think? Did WildWorks and National Geographic suffer a breakup? I wonder who dumped who... IF they even dumped each other...

Leave your thoughts in the comments. Bye y'all!

Jammer Opinions #4: Magenta Items

Hello Jammers! It has been quite a while since I've last made one of these "Jammer Opinions"-type posts, so I thought it would be a good idea to do another.

In this episode, we'll be asking around Jamaa for opinions on magenta items - or, more specifically, glitched magenta items. It seems as though new versions of glitched magenta items just keep on popping up out of nowhere on a daily basis. It's become quite the controversy in the trading world.

With that being said, let's begin!








Whenever you are trading for sketchy items that are either glitched or unreleased, it is important to remember that no action comes without consequences. It's better to be safe than sorry!

Thanks for reading. That's the whip!

The Official Animal Jam Blogger Tag

Hi Jammers! My good friend Violet made a tag the other day called "The Official Animal Jam Blogger Tag", and since I'm an Animal Jam Blogger, I've decided I want to do it for today's post.

Here we go!

1. nafaria9.
2. I started blogging on June 26th, 2012.
3. I've written for many blogs in the past, but as of right now, I mainly write for this blog (the Animal Jam Whip).
4. Currently, I just have an Animal Jam blog.
5. I've been blogging for about six years now. Crazy, isn't it?
6. I was inspired by other Animal Jam bloggers to start my own blog. I also like to write, so blogging was the perfect hobby for me.
7. As disappointing as it is, I don't really HAVE any specific stories behind why I started my blog and why I named it what I did. I guess I named my blog ''the Whip'' because I like... creamy... foods?
8. I started playing Animal Jam sometime in late August 2011, so... seven years? Dang...
9. My favorite thing about blogging is just the overall experience, as well as you guys, of course! My least favorite thing about blogging is the pressure to post as often as possible, although I've managed to sort of control that over the past few months with the new posting schedule.
10. I think the day I hit 100,000 views was pretty memorable.
11. Eh... I usually just start my posts with a simple ''Hey Jammers'', and end with something like "Bye Jammers''. Pretty basic stuff, if you ask me.
12. I love all AJ blogs and bloggers!
13. All of you. <3
14. I love posting about the things people say in Jamaa - those are always hilarious. I also find unreleased items interesting.
15. Anything that makes me laugh!

This tag was lots of fun to do. If you have an Animal Jam blog, feel free to do this tag as well!

Bye everyone!
