Happy77 was a Club Penguin Moderator. On Penguin Chat 3, she was seen as a snail. Many people believe that Happy77's real name is Rachael Leards — but it's not. Her real name is actually Holly Hildebrandt. Happy77 worked for Polo Field on blog and social media stuff with other known Moderators like Businesmoose, Daffodaily5, Chattabox and Tour Guide.
First Blog Post
Happy77 made her first post on the What's New Blog in December 2008:
Hello Penguins! Happy77 here.
I'm so stoked to say hi. Some of you might remember me from way back at the beginning of Club Penguin. Since Billybob announced I'd be writing blogs I know some of you have asked about me. Among other stuff, I do some writing for Club Penguin, love to play Mancala, and I've been told I'm a bit curious...
Lots of you say you want to know behind the scenes stuff at Club Penguin. So, along with some game updates, I'll sometimes be asking questions of the people around here. There's a new mission coming up soon, and I found out that soon Screenhog will be giving you a great sneak peek. But since we're all curious about missions, I talked to an artist who works on them:
What was your absolute favorite thing about working on the upcoming mission?
"All of it. Doing the storyboards are difficult, but the most fun."
What's your favorite candy?
"Hmmm. There's this candy that's kind of like 'breath perfume' that I like."
I want to know all the stuff you're curious about around Club Penguin, so please let me know! (And tell us if you have any fab ideas for new missions!)
Until then... Waddle on!
Leaving Club Penguin
In October 2012, Happy77 announced she would soon be leaving Club Penguin. This is her leaving blog:
|“|| Greetings Penguins!
Happy77 here. It's almost Club Penguin's anniversary. Hard to believe that Club Penguin is almost 7 years old already!
I'm writing this post to let you know that I'll also be moving on from Club Penguin. I'll be spending my time raising my children. Who knows? Maybe one day my kids will grow up to be bloggers, too. :)
I’ve had an amazing time here at Club Penguin. Like Billybob, you're the reason I've done this for so long. Polo Field and Businesmoose have been helping me since I first started blogging in 2008, so I know you’re in good hands.
Thanks for being so supportive, and for the great memories.
And as always...
Waddle On! :)
