A Farewell From Kingdom Pen

Dearest community members,


It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that Kingdom Pen has reached the end of its life. As of tomorrow, we will be shutting down the website and disbanding the team. We, as the staff, simply cannot continue on. Not only is time scarce due to many of being enrolled in college, but, we also have no money; many of us are working two or three jobs to make ends meet. pitfallsandstrengthspost-200x300 (2)

I’m sure you’ve noticed that the graphic for this post is somewhat lacking. Laurel went on strike earlier this morning after demanding payment for her services. The cookies just weren’t cutting it anymore. We also apologize for any errors in this article. Both our editors left a few minutes ago to go beg for food in exchange for publically correcting peoples’ grammar mistakes.

I hope my pirated internet connection will hold long enough for me to get this message through. I’m pretty sure the Jittery Joes people are going to notice the new cardboard box soon. It’s not a lot, of course, but its home. A little wet when it’s rainy, but not that bad after you get used to it.

We have really enjoyed our time together these last few years and wish you all the best.



Your Now-Cardboard-Box-Indwelling Secretary Sarah


PS—Happy April Fool’s! But seriously, we really do depend on y’all to help us keep KP running. *cough* Swag yourself. *cough* Sorry, this weather is really getting to me. Cardboard boxes really breathe a lot, y’know?

  1. Oh dear! Stay warm sweet Sarah.
    Suddenly I feel the urge to buy a new cup. 😉
    P.S. I hope Laurel returns soon. Her graphics are a-mazing!

  2. Happy April Fool’s, y’all! I’m not going to lie: I enjoyed writing this. XD

  3. “Both our editors left a few minutes ago to go beg for food in exchange for publically correcting peoples’ grammar mistakes.” – that line is hilarious.

    So glad you’re not closing.

  4. Wow, you really scared me there for a second. I’ve never felt more naïve and gullible than at the moment I found out you were joking. There were some tears averted. So glad KP is still going strong!

  5. Nice… I knew it was April fools and you still scared me. 😛

    I’ve been waiting for something like this from you guys all day, actually. I knew it was only a matter of time. 😉

  6. I’ve been watching my wordpress reader all day looking for something like this. Thank you for seizing the day, Sarah. XD

  7. Oh, phew! I almost cried. I’m so glad this was just a joke. 🙂 Nice job, Sarah.

  8. I had a heart attack and then fainted from relief when I found out is was only Aprils Fools. (I wasn’t ready for it, since Aprils Fool had passed for us.) Don’t do that to me Sarah! 😛

  9. Gee, I thought to be on guard all day yeaterday, caught all the tricks without being had, and then BOOM. I forgot about Kingdom Pen 😛 You had me there for a second.

    I want to make some sort of Jittery Joes joke in here, but I can’t think of anything 😐

  10. This literally almost gave me a heart attack!!!! Good one…!

  11. Oh. My. Goodness. This scared me so badly!!! It also made me realize how much you all do for us KPers. So thank you KP Staff for all you do! 🙂
    “Both our editors left a few minutes ago to go beg for food in exchange for publically correcting peoples’ grammar mistakes.” By this point, I knew that it was a joke. XD

    • Do not underestimate the desperation of broke college students. 😉 I did live in a cardboard box for a little while though. When I was like four. For a couple hours. In our backyard. I cut windows and painted it. I thought it was pretty great. xD

      • Haha, that’s awesome! 😛 I need to live in a cardboard box for a while. Hopefully it wouldn’t rain. ‘Cause then I’d be wet, and it wouldn’t be so fun anymore. XD

  12. I just saw this. It was unfortunately completely wasted on me, since if it had been true I would never have seen it.

  13. Y’all did a post like this last year, didn’t you? I felt a sense of Deja Vu and looked at the date. Oh, maybe it was the Rebelution that played a similar prank, and that’s why it didn’t fool me. At any rate, I got a good laugh out of this! Thanks, Sarah:) (You internet pirate;)
