Every tragedy needs a beginning

I feel compelled to explain why I now have a second blog. Yes I know it’s incredibly egotistical to think that you even care, but having a fragile ego that needs to be constantly fed is a pre-requisite for being a blogger.

First, for anyone that’s having any premature celebrations, no I am not leaving BMA. In fact nothing will really change there from my end. I’ll still be posting as always, and still making everyone wonder how many free Sarah McLachlan CDs Nettwerk is hooking me up with for blogging about them every day.

The difference will be that here I’ll get to prattle on about whatever I like. It will still be heavy on the marketing side, with a dash of ad talk thrown in, but I’ll also talk about whatever else catches my eye that day. Stuff that really has no business being on BMA, because it wouldn’t be fair to the other writers to get off-topic, which is something I love to do.

Some of the stuff I post here will be cross-posted on BMA, especially the marketing-related posts, and especially early-on. After that, we’ll see what happens. Oh BTW, I still need that high-paying marketing job, so if you have an extra one of those you aren’t using, I’ll be much obliged if you’d throw it my way. I’ll even link to you, hell I’ll link to you from here *and* from BMA! If you know anyone that has such a job, I can also throw in 34 cents and a used copy of The Simpsons Season 1 on DVD (but don’t tell them that at first).

What else…..hmmm I guess that’s it for now.

Mark, I got here via Beyond Madison Avenue, which is already one of my regular reads. You're off to a great start. :)
