Davearama also mentioned that the name paid homage to Bananarama albums Pop Life and True Confessions. He even modeled the Poptastic Confessions logo after Bananarama’s album WOW!
Over the past 7 years, we’ve used social media to drive viewers to the blog. We have a Facebook page, playlists on Spotify, and this past week we opened an Instagram account. Today, we announce our official Twitter page, which will be run by Sausi O'Sullivan. Please follow us and like and share our posts!
Our mission is to highlight music that isn’t heard by the masses. Sometimes that means indie pop, other times it is artists who were popular in the past, or dance pop. Although pop is our first love, we feel that it encompasses many musical styles. We have featured R&B, soul, deep house, country, and even rock. There really is so much good music out there.
We were asked this last year if we get paid for promoting the music. We don't. We do this for free out of love for the music. Sometimes we get to know the artists, and that is really cool. Although we also have to remain objective, especially for our year-end countdown.
One of our proudest legacies about the blog is that the delicious deep house duo Glass Slipper formed because Davearama’s friend Brad read the interview with Lisa and saw that they lived in the same city. He contacted her and the rest is history. Lisa calls Davearama their fairy god mother. He loves it!
