First of all if you don't know what Pottermore is it's an online community for Harry Potter fans, there is nothing else like it out there. They started beta testing it on Sunday July 31st (Harry Potter's Birthday). 7 Books, 7 Days, 7 Chances is there slogan. Once a day The Magical Quill will appear and ask a question. If you answer it correctly and there are still slots you can get in to be a beta tester. Well the first day was Sunday and it happened sometime in the early AM, 2am I think so when I got up and went to the page it informed me that Day 1 registration was closed... it was only 7am and already closed.

So I was determined to stay up last night for Day 2. Well 1am came and I fell asleep. They don't announce the times but they seem to be more European times while it's super early here in the US, especially the west coast. Anyways by the time I got up at 7am Day 2 registration was closed. I was bummed, figured I wasn't going to be one of the beta testers and would just join in October when it opens up to the public.

Well I get on my computer and noticed a message from my buddy Jerod. he said "Oh by the way I signed you up for Pottermore, I hope you don't", "you're password is ******". I was in shock.. I wasn't sure which email account he used or anything so I quickly went to my Gmail account and there was the email informing me that my Pottermore user name is FireboltCrimson66 and all I had to do is click on this link enter my password and a letter(invite) would be sent to me with in two weeks. So I clicked the link and that's it.. I'm now part of Pottermore. Waiting for my letter with my official invite but I sat there with tears in my eyes. I couldn't believe how awesome Jerod was for doing that. I never mentioned it to him I only tweeted a few tweets yesterday about not being able to get an invite and here it is.

I truly have some amazing friends.. Thank Jerod.. you made this one of the best Monday in a long time.

  1. Congrats Kenny! I'm so excited for it. I was able to get in today but that was because I have a 2 month old that usually wakes up @ 4 am mountain time. He woke up 4:30 am yesterday & registration had been closed for an hour & I was crushed! Luckily it was still open today when little man was hungry!
