I just wanted to make an official post to my blog to announce that I will be writing articles & reviews covering all aspects of pop culture for popculturebeast.com. Everybody has been very cool welcoming me in, especially Editor Garon Cockrell. I will still be posting some content here (mostly about writing/teaching), some just on PCB, and some shared between both sites. This is a pretty great opportunity and I can’t wait to write some more stuff!

Thank you everybody who has been following my blog, liking my posts, reading what I’ve been writing, and so on and so forth. All of a sudden I go from listening to Garon Cockrell on Never Not Funny to writing for his site to interviewing Jensen Karp, host of Get Up On This, for his site all in a matter of days. Stay posted for all the new stuff!
