2017, a fresh start?

My old domain used to be unnie.net. When I set up my blog I didn’t realise that since I’m not korean, I shouldn’t be using the word “unnie” as a domain. Also I revealed my true identity and ended up feeling uncomfortable with posting personal thoughs etc. This lead to my blog being inactive and me regretting my decisions.

{ I let all my Affiliates know about the url change – I’m really sorry for the inconvenience. }

I decided to go for redvelvet.cc because lately, I’ve been really getting into the k-pop group Red Velvet. Also, I love the aestetic of this domain and then there’s red velvet cake. Amazing. Originally I wanted to register jellyjoy.net, but apparently that’s a lube brand. So yeah, there’s that.
I thought about going back to my old nickname Ran™, but then I thought that a fresh start includes a new nickname as well. Since the whole concept of this website is inspired by Red Vevlet I thought Joy would be a nice choice. She’s my favorite member and since I wasn’t able to register jellyjoy that would be a nice alternative. 😀

I don’t kow if the Shoutbox works properly. If you are using WordPress, it should be fine. If you are a logged out user and try to leave a message and put in your website, the message won’t send for some reason. If you leave out your website it works though. I don’t know what to do about that 🙁 I hope I find a solution soon.

Other than that there’s nothing new. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

  • Hi Joy! Please to meet you 🙂
    I love RV as well 😀 Currently addicted to their Russian Roulette XD and RV domain is so cute!
    Welcome to your new fresh start! Hope you find comfortable with everything now 🙂
    And I added you as my affies! Yay!

  • Thank you for letting me know about your new domain~! Yeah, I can understand about privacy, but in the end, I’m happy you’re back! Glad you’re getting a fresh start, and I did update your link! Yay!

  • Congratulations on your new domain! I think red velvet is a great choice. I don’t blame you for changing your name, sometimes I question whether I should be using my actual name.

    I’m so happy for your fresh start

  • New starts can be refreshing 🙂 Though by you not being Korean, I didn’t think anything was wrong with you using “unnie” as your old domain. That’s like saying if you’re not from one of the English-speaking countries, you can’t have an English domain. As someone who’s part Korean herself, I didn’t think it was odd at all for you having Unnie.net. But I do understand why you want to change identity. So I hope this works out well for you!

    P.S. — My blog is at Aigoo.me — the old URL redirects it, but it will not always redirect it. 🙂

  • Hi Joy!
    Thanks for leaving a comment in my cbox. I wasn’t able to reply back in your shoutbox because the message wasn’t sending. But yes, I’d love to exchange links! I’ll add you to my blogroll~
    Are you able to use a third party comment box, like cbox?

    I love your new sitename! And your layout is absolutely gorgeous!
    I didn’t think it was weird that your old sitename was Unnie! But to each their own. 🙂
    It’s kind of similar to my situation — my old blog name was Faded Aeterna, but I felt like I needed a fresh start. Hence why I came up with 4am~

  • Yes, sehr gerne! Trag dich gleich sofort ein 🙂

    Auf eine schöne Partnerschaft!

    Irgendwie schickt die Shoutbox meine Nachricht nicht ab D:

  • LOL at your bio “*kim bok joo voice* swag!” I love it!

    As a Korean-American, I didn’t think it was weird for you to use “unnie” at all! But I like new starts as a way to refresh yourself and your blog and sometimes changing your blog name can help. I did the same to my blog a year ago.

  • No problem! I just used the embed code they provided and it worked for me. 😛

    Oh nice! I wasn’t sure people remembered me from my old blog!

    Thank you so much!
    You’re so sweet omg. <3

  • Congrats on the new domain!~ Not a problem at all!

  • Ohw, warum war dir das unangenehm, persönliche Dinge zu schreiben? >:
