Instagram is my new blog…

21 Jul

Who would have predicted? Well maybe Dr. Who and the emoji robots. But with the < millenials using social media as search and messaging portals, combined with a US president addicted to instant twittefication I realized that most of us are becoming instant response addicts. And the beauty of Instagram is that it’s visual so fewer pesky words to type, let alone spell correctly. I share more often but smaller tidbits. On the one hand it’s fabulous because I feel like those I care about can share whatever excites me at the moment. However it remains a tidbit, so shallow.

Don’t just embrace a channel because there is an audience if your message doesn’t fit. For those who know me, they know what they’ll find on my instagram feed.

Why do advertising people blog?

19 Aug

I was going to blog about hurrah! the end of summer. Because I don’t know if you know this but here in the land of milk & honey that is Amsterdam the dress code, which is lax at the best of times, is downright abysmal during the summer. If I see one more set of naked non-pedicured toes in Havaianas or shock horror grubby Jesus Nikes I will puke like the character in Little Britain. We shall leave my rant on dress code for another day. Because while trawling the blogosphere I stumbled across a few other rather interesting posts. Namely:

And

Now I’m an opinionated bitch at the best of times. Truly, someone once told me I’d be a great dictator, so what struck me was obviously like minds. But I also noticed something in the tone of voice and use of language. So go to the about and what do I find – expats in advertising. We are in the communicaton business, most of us addicted to social media so it figures that we’d blog. As a matter of fact I’m going to go one step further and say ‘we should blog’ how could, particularly these two heads of planning, advise about the modern media landscape without being a part of it.

I look forward to future posts by them both.
