Why Blog?

Many people, especially the highly educated, see pop culture as a detriment – it distracts us from the real world. So why blog about it?

The answer is simple: pop culture provides us with an outlet. It can inspire, or it can be used for humor. It’s a distraction, but a much needed one.

Blogging about pop culture will raise awareness for this outlet.  We care about who’s performing at the Grammys or what went down on AHS: Coven last night because we desire entertainment – it keeps us sane.

A blog highlighting all the different aspects of pop culture will be a one-stop source for the distraction that keeps us all happy.

Personally, pop culture gives me a break from the chaos of my college life. As a political science and communications double major balancing an internship and studying for the LSAT, my life is full of nonstop seriousness.

Pop culture is my release from all of that. I believe it is of great value, and that’s why I’ve chosen to blog about it.
