So. It’s been a while.
It would be disingenuous to say my absence from writing has exclusively been from moving, although that has been taking up a good chunk of my time and attention. Part of it has been moving from part-time to full-time at my job, and another part has simply been burnout and poor mental health.
But, more than anything, it was my frustration with my chosen platform. Blogger was a fine enough start, but I realized the site didn’t have the tools or flexible customization I was looking for. So, I made the jump from there to WordPress with the intent of making it a unique domain.
Additionally, I’ve been starting to feel quite restricted by the name of my blog. I love Pop Punk Daebak, but the name makes it it feel a bit awkward to write about anything but pop punk and K-pop. I will continue to, and hopefully recruit other people to, write about these genres, but the aim of this rebrand is to expand to include other related sub-genres, movie reviews and alternative fashion.
The original blog will remain active so existing links still work (for now). But, all future articles will be posted here and the posts from PPD have been imported; I’m not only extremely proud of the work I’ve posted there, but wanted that content to be posted here without losing the original post date.
So, I look forward to building this website more and expanding the kind of content I can create. Thank you for your patience and I’m excited to show you what irons I’ve had in the fire.
Everyone is welcome to The In-Crowd.
