From DailyBap to Hangeulove After 7 Years

TLDR; DailyBap has moved to Hangeulove.

In a blink of an eye, it has been 7 years since I first created DailyBap on Tumblr, where I posted daily photo edits with their related Korean words, which was how I came up with its name. I mainly did it to help myself remember Korean words easily, and was glad when fellow Korean learners told me that it was helping them too. :)

However, personal life and work took over, and I found it hard to continue posting daily, which was why I stopped. Then one day, I had this genius idea that I wanted to start blogging again and thought I could turn DailyBap into a Korean learning progress blog, which till this day, I still doubt ever actually became one. ><; Anyway, I moved all of my Tumblr posts here and started updating more regularly, especially through Instagram posts.

Late of 2016, I came to the realisation that my blog name was no longer relevant to what I post and I wanted a name that would more accurately reflect the current and future of this blog, so I cracked my head and came up with Hangeulove! Because, you know, I love 한글 (Hangeul). Creative, right? (sarcasm) 🙄

In January 2017, I updated all of my social media channels to reflect the new name, but this blog was the hardest to do, as you cannot simply change the URL, WordPress would instead create a new blog with the new name and ask you to redirect visitors over from the old blog. I thought long and hard about whether I wanted to actually change the name and lose all of the analytics this blog had gained, and after months, I have finally decided that this would be the right move. If not now, when?

With this, I want to thank everyone who has visited this blog in the past years, even if you did accidentally stumble upon it as you were searching for B.A.P (true story, started happening after B.A.P made their debut, lol 😂 sorry for the disappointment!), and for leaving rare comments that let me know I am not always just talking to myself. I hope to see everyone over at the new blog, Hangeulove! 💕
