10 Reasons to Restart an Advertising Ratings Blog

It may be obvious, but I haven’t blogged in roughly 3 years. My absence was largely due to starting my professional career. But professional careers are so professional, yah know? I believe everyone should have some outlet for absurdity. Back when I started this blog (when I was actually an intern), I envisioned a satiric irreverent look at the ad industry, while giving that industry’s work a rating.

With that in mind, here are 10 reasons why you should restart an advertising ratings blog or any blog for that matter.

10. The Gods have called upon me

9. Right Place, Right Time

tumblr_mvbsssNrfA1sh0dsto1_500Blogs are in like a Subreddit Twitter feed. I figure I can capitalize on this trend. In the words of the kanesian philosophers, the Wu-Tang Clan, “Cash Rules Everything Around Me, CREAM get the money. Dolla dolla bills ya’ll”.

8. Grow a Larger Network

matrix_revolutions_fieldIt’s like virtual horticulture or something like that. I tried to water my computer so my network would grow, but that didn’t work out well.

7. Say funny things about companies I secretly hope to work for

tumblr_lxv7ou0lEE1r3bteso1_r1_400It’s true, I work for a good company now and I’d be honored to work with anyone or anything I would joke about. Life is great. Just Do it. and uh… Diamonds Are Forever.

6. A Creative Outlet

best_animated_gif_nuclear_explosionIt’s like a power outlet, but the only bill you pay is after you drink. A few beers and the ideas come as clear as a Scientologist; 6 beers and 12 hours later and you won’t have a creative thought outside of what headache medicine you should chose.

5. Rating an advertisement is all we do

4. Anyone can do it

giphyAccording to conventional marketing thought, most of our day is spent subconsciously accessing 1,000’s of messages. By that rationale, everyone (including myself) should be considered an professional advertising guru rock star.

3. It never hurts to try

2. All the cool kids are doing it

billnye6Are nerds cool now or are the cool kids hipsters or are hipsters nerds? Someone please clarify.

1. For Fun
