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
Thor just came out in theaters and I saw it as a sign from Valhalla. Sometimes you have to do something silly, just like creating a second Thor movie. The only disappointing thing was they didn’t call it Thor II: The Thorarning.
9. Right Place, Right Time
Blogs 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
7. Say funny things about companies I secretly hope to work for
6. A Creative Outlet
It’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
According 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.
