I am often asked where the title of this site “Hard in the City” came from, usually after someone has mistaken it for a porn site. I didn’t really set out to create a website with a porny name. The origin of the term came from a song I wrote, which is not actually even called “Hard in the City.” When I created my Twitter account, that seemed like a good name for that as well. And then when I was creating my website, I figured it would make sense if it matched my Twitter name, because I will be tweeting a lot of articles from it. And so it was christened.
My entertainment and pop culture-related site really has nothing to do with either hardness or softness in any particular metropolis, but the site was called “Hard in the City” on a whim and so it shall be, forever and ever. Amen.
