I haven’t blogged here in a while. I got a bit bored with it, if I’m being honest. Once I reached a certain number of followers I was kinda like *shrug* “That’s cool, I guess,” and started looking for the next challenge, because really, it’s a Tumblr blog. Hardly something to brag about.
I started some other blogs, got a bit of that sunlight everyone has been yammering on about, and actually tried to enjoy my college experience for a while— what’s left of it, anyway. And more importantly, I took some time to work on my own portfolio, which I desperately needed and still do.
But I’ve re-gained a little bit of steam this summer with social networking, and brushed off some of those insecurities that were nagging like, “Omg what happens if someone actually reads this?” or worse still, “What happens if someone I want to work for reads this?” But you know, if that agency is the kind of place where everyone needs to be told how awesome they are all the time— I probably don’t want to work there anyway… Ha, look at me being cheeky like I actually have options and we’re not in a recession.
That being said, I think adland could use a bit of honesty from time to time. And really, I’m not too much of a critic as much of an amused spectator, so I’m throwing my hat in the blogging ring again to offer my opinion for whatever it’s worth. Expect a wee bit more consistency, not much more maturity, and as much personality as I can muster in future posts.
Also, I twat. Follow me so I can feel popular and make up for not winning Prom Court in High School. My brother won 3 times. Not that I care… obviously… totally over it. You know, the way that everyone else in advertising is “totally over” their past grudges, because we’re grown ups now, OK!
We were talking in my advertising class on Monday about guerrilla marketing and are required for our portfolios to come up with a guerrilla campaign idea. However, we had difficulty trying to identify what counts as a guerrilla idea and what is just a brilliant outdoor/ambient media idea since the lines tend to be a bit blurred.
So I’ve decided to ask some of you clever people of the internet:
What exactly is the difference between Guerrilla Marketing and Outdoor/Ambient?
