A few weeks ago, I wrote about why I blog. In that post, I said — and I quote — “I blog because I want to share my true authentic self to anyone who would bother to listen.”
I also said that combining all my interests in one blog makes sense because doing so better reflect the true me. I still believe what I wrote then, but today I’m announcing that I’m no longer posting about music here.
Long story short, with the past system, I found myself blogging less often. Most of my blog ideas were related to music, but I hesitated to write them because I wanted to strike a balance writing about marketing, food, and music.
Secondly, music posts were cannibalizing my site’s traffic. I had to ask myself if I was okay with the fact that a blog post about Maroon 5 is on track to be my most viewed article for the year. The hard answer is no.
Finally, I’ve met some (not too many) people who mentioned that they’ve come across my blog somehow. I’m a proud pop music listener, but I also want to project an image that is as professional as possible. I didn’t want my music posts to overshadow my posts about marketing, which happen to take more time to research and to put together. I knew I had to do something.
A new blog! About music!
The end result is a new blog. I’m excited to introduce Filthy Pop, my new platform for all my music stuff!
You might be wondering about the name. I wanted the word “pop” there because I mostly write about pop music. And filthy? Well, most people think pop music is kinda trashy, so I wanted to play off that. “Trashy pop” doesn’t really sound good. (And frankly, I don’t write about trashy music…. not 100% of the time, anyway.)
I thought about “Dirty Pop”, but I thought “Filthy Pop” had a better ring to it.
Anyway, when it makes sense, I’ll cross post some stuff from that blog to this one. For the most part though, Filthy Pop will have all my posts about concerts, new music, and music videos.
So what happens to kcclaveria.com now?
I’ll continue to write about social media marketing, advertising, public relations, food, and Vancouver on this blog. I’m keeping the tag line “Eat, Play, Tweet” because I do believe it still applies.
In the meantime, if you liked my music posts before, please visit my new blog:
Hope to see you there! Let me know what you think of it!
