What's your friendship worth?

I admit it – I’m not the most popular. I don’t have any Facebook bumper stickers. I’ve only received 1 gift in my lifetime. I thought 366 friends was a respectable number… oh wait, 367 (thanks Meagan!). But I think...Read more

Word of the day.

As a copywriter, I rely on an array of resources to improve my communication skills. One of my favorites is a daily email I recieve from - Word of the Day. I’m addicted. Like caffeine in the morning, I now require a new word to jump start my brain. Sadly, I’ve learned a lot of words that I never get to use. I’m a writer in advertising so we usually stick with the basics. (We’ve also been known to make up some of our own.) Don’t get me wrong, in advertising, words are chosen very carefully, thoughtfully and strategically.Read more

I should preface this by saying I haven’t actually seen the advertising materials but I’ve seen some press on the campaign.Read more

A television ad that saved a life.

I didn’t think that a TV ad could save a life. But I wrote a spot that actually saved the life of my friend and business partner. The spot starts with a woman in the shower who then finds a...Read more

Please. I don’t care for a mug with your logo.

Is anyone else alarmed by the sexualization of M&Ms?

Or is just me who is befuddled by the marketing strategy behind the M&M advertising that been running for the past year or two? Where the candies are anthropomorphized with legs and eyeballs and hair... And often do shticks between some not-so-bright boy M's & a very vampy girl M.Read more

How a complaint became an advertising campaign.

That’s what happened when a guy decided to complain about a malfunction on his Tiger Wood’s video game where it appeared that Tiger was walking on water. Rather than take it back to EA Games in exchange for a new...Read more

The 2012 Presidential Race – will it require myspace?
