A Blogger Says Goodbye

Well, Kind of...
Here's the deal folks. I have been offered an incredible opportunity to work at an agency who's work I have admired for some time now and I'm moving to Boulder, Colorado (today actually). It's an agency known for big ideas, long hours, and late nights. So the little free time I'm going to have in the future, let's just say I don't plan on spending it blogging.

However, I've put a lot of work into this little ad blog. After two years of discussing work I think is freshly forward, I have built up a modest, yet noticeable presence in the blogosphere. And I would hate to see all that go to waste. So, I'm thinking about my options. I'm open to bringing on new writers. Changing up the format. Re-thinking how the blog world talks about advertising/ideas and seeing if some fresh blood can take this thing to the next level (whatever that is).

I'm most interested in exploring what you guys feel you're most lacking from the ad blogs. I've noticed a serious drought of insightful commentary (or any for that matter). We see lots and lots of ads, and read lots of random comments. But I'd like to build something that doesn't just celebrates great work, but also dissects it. A place we can all learn something and then push each other to do better work as an industry. I don't know what that blog looks like, but maybe you do. Maybe you're interested in building it. Let me know.

So, this isn't quite goodbye. But the future of Advertising for Peanuts hangs in the foggy air. Don't expect any regular posting for the next few weeks. But do expect something interesting to be happening here. That alone might be enough to keep you coming back in the short term. Thanks again to all you regulars. It's been fun. I'll let you know when I emerge from my work coma.

First, congrats on the new job. Sounds exciting!

Let's do it. I think that's one thing that is lacking in the advertising blogworld is pure conversation. Everyone is willing and ready to spread images but dialog is found few and far between.

I'm a marketer/designer/advertiser hybrid so I read a lot of marketing blogs as well. Conversation is all over that part of the web. It would be awesome to see the discussion in the ad world taken to that level.

I like a lot your blog, I try to visit every day and I wish it don't finish.

Congratulations on the new gig.

As for the blog, there's no law that says you have to keep posting to keep the blog alive. Maybe, as you suggest, someone else will step up. But even if that doesn't happen, you can just let the blog continue to exist as a reference archive, à la Miss Snark.

Well, congrats and good luck!

Crispin sounds really exciting, wish you all the best.

And I bet this isn't goodbye.

I agree... There are soooo many blogs that have tonnes of posts each day but throw up nothing more than the image and the link. That's all well and good but insight and opinion - over and above the usual "it's nice" and "great work" - is sorely missed across both design and advertising blogs...

I run a small blog myself that crosses many boundaries but is firmly focused on digial media. I try very hard to have a coherent opinion about what I'm posting about - check it out boredom is your fault - i'd love to know if you think the same and am very interested in becoming a part of advertising for peanuts' next phase.

congrats on the job at crispin!!!

I hope you enjoy the new job, and whilst it's a shame you're not publishing as often here (if at all) it'd be great to keep the blog alive.

Why are all the good bloggers also good creatives? You'll be missed dear friend of the blogosphere. There will be little co-dependant blogs that will collapse along with yours (I think I saw something like that on discovery channel about the delicate balance in the blogosphere).

Cheers.

The fact is that there are only a handful of reliable online resources, even though hundreds of sites, which is a beautiful sound, and ads making all sorts of promises. Common scams. It can be difficult to know a good site a scam site. Car accidents can have serious consequences for the victim of an accident, and can be physical, and economic aspects related to it.

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
