The End Of An Era

Hi everyone!

Phew, four weeks since Jackson was born and I think Frankie and I are approaching some kind of routine now. It’s just as well, because I go back to work on Tuesday!

I know I’m very biased, but how gorgeous is my boy?
Anyway, today the day has finally come to close down, with a caveat.

I began this site as a place to write freely all the way back in 2012. In the almost seven years since, I’ve become a published writer for numerous websites, moved house, released music, settled down, and had a little boy. This site has been a huge part of my life for that entire time, and I’m so thankful for the hundreds of people that check in on a surprisingly regular basis to see what’s happening in my ever-busy life.

Hundreds may sound like an exaggeration, but it really isn’t. This site has never been about the numbers, but since it began all those years ago I’ve had over 26,000 views across 139 posts (including this one).

I’ve poured my heart into so many of these pieces of content, but the time has come to change things up. With my writing career snowballing into a potentially full-time endeavour, on top of my day job, and my new little family, I feel it’s time to let PopPunkPanda wander into the sunset.

The caveat I alluded to earlier is that my new site is now live, and while it focuses on my writing and musical endeavours, the blog there will be my new focus. Less scattershot than this one, but with plenty of discussion about fitness, parenting, mental wellbeing and more.

With all of that in mind, this is me signing off for one last time and urging you to head over to The site is a little barebones at the moment, but it’ll be updated on a nearly constant basis over the next few weeks.

To everyone who has been a reader of this blog, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and hope it has helped you in some small way.
