The Pop Blog is a blog about Pop Culture and Entertainment, and we are based in the Philippines.
Despite our main pop culture and entertainment blogger being based in Davao City, Philippines, we cater to readers worldwide. Our contributing writers and guest authors come from different parts of Asia and the world. Some of our articles and reviews have been translated into foreign languages.
The Pop Blog is also one of the Top 20 Pop Culture blogs in the world and Top 10 Music blogs in the Philippines, according to Feedspot. It was also hailed as one of the Outstanding Davao Blogs 2021 by the Davao Bloggers Society.
We have also been tapped by brands including Telum Media, Netflix, ICS-Digital, Branded, Sony Music PR, iNexxus, MusicPromoToday, and more independent and mainstream companies, record labels, brands, and artists.
We blog about Pop Culture in General, including Shopping, Lifestyle, and Technology–everything related to pop culture and entertainment.
So what is Pop Culture? According to Dictionary.com, the basic definition of Pop Culture is “cultural activities or commercial products reflecting, suited to, or aimed at the tastes of the general masses of people.” The Pop Blog is not about that.
Through the years, Pop Culture has evolved. ThoughtCo listed a total of six definitions that embody Pop Culture today, and The Pop Blog epitomizes the sixth one, which is, “in the postmodern world, in today’s world, the distinction between “authentic” versus “commercial” is blurred. In pop culture today, users are free to embrace some manufactured content, alter it for their own use, or reject it entirely and create their own.”
The Pop Blog adheres to the idea that Pop Culture is both authentic and commercial. It is democratic and diverse. The Pop Blog features both avante-garde and popular art. We also incorporate pop culture with Lifestyle, Fashion, Technology, and Shopping. An example article is this blog post we wrote for a GrabFood campaign: GrabFood Restaurant Picks, Based on Your TV Series Marathon
NeP-C Ledesma, the main blogger, devours both pop culture that has a mass appeal, like pop stars and blockbuster films, and pop culture that is a niche, such as garage band kings and arthouse films. And again, in this generation, there’s a thin line between the two.
From time to time, NeP-C chronicles her life, style, and other nitty-gritty on this blog. She’s also more than willing to feature anyone who deserves to be written about, especially indie and unknown talents. Contact her to be featured.
