Starting on July 31, people were given the chance to answer a question, find the magic quill and be basically beta testers for Pottermore, before it opens for everyone in October.
I wasn't going to stay up all hours of the night waiting for the clue because I do have a toddler to care for and work to do. But today, the clue was suppose to drop somewhere between 11 am and 3 pm EST.
I was a little nervous that it would be live while I was putting Emily down for a nap, but thankfully it didn't. I got back on my laptop and started refreshing.
I nearly fell out of my chair when the clue finally arrived and I hurried to answer it. I was confused because it took me to Scholastic's website, but thanks to Twitter, I was instructed that the quill was in an ad on the top of the Scholastic site.
I wildly clicked on the ad, and finally it told me 'Congratulations' and took me to the page so I could put in all my information. My witch name is SandSilver128.
Then all I had to do was wait for the email to arrive. I had heard that is can take some time before the email does come, and that if you don't get the email you aren't really in. So I got up and did a few things before I went back to my laptop to stalk my email.
Thankfully it wasn't too long before I got my email letting me know that I was officially into the beta! Now it will probably be a couple of weeks before I can access the site, but I'm just terribly geeked that I actually managed to get in.
