the 5 days you’ll meet working from home

nine months ago, i started a new job. we have a Buckhead office for occasional internal and client meetings, but for the most part, everyone works remotely. it’s totally cool, but (like most things in life) it’s not exactly how i thought it would be. before i started, i imagined that my life would suddenly…

5 ways to make Mondays suck less

here i am at 4:00 on Sunday afternoon . . . working. ugh! actually, a really exciting opportunity has come up for my company and i am hard at work brainstorming and laying the groundwork for a proposal for a big, interesting, international (!) project that i’m totally psyched about. Spy and Miss Girl have gone…

5 on Friday: a(nother) Writing 101 mashup

(photo: thrillist.com) um. didn’t Writing 101 end like 6 weeks ago? you’re asking. i know, right? but here i am. still. did i ever tell y’all that i didn’t graduate college on time? yeah, somehow at the finish line, i still needed one more class and ended up hanging around Winter Park for the summer…

Friday favorites: procrastination edition

so today’s Writing 101 challenge asked us to write a post about one of 5 Tweets. this one obviously spoke to me. it’s been a weird, long short week. and i definitely believe procrastination is essential to creativity. here are a few ways i have procrastinated this week. and i totally feel more creative for…

Friday favorites

yay! it’s a big Friday around here: Miss Girl makes her acting debut this afternoon in a video we’re shooting for a client (free talent is good talent on this budget). i can’t wait to see how she does pretending to make popcorn and watch a movie with her fake family. speaking of fake families, i…

’tis the season for mailmen

i’m such a nerd. i well up when they play the Clydesdales ads on the Super Bowl. i never change the channel during commercial breaks because i might miss something interesting. i can get caught up in a 30-second story like it’s a feature film. i guess that’s why i went into advertising. blame it on…

NaBloPoMo: bonus post!

okay, okay. for those keeping score, this is less of a bonus post and more of a make-up post. call it what you want. with just 2 days to go, i’m officially caught up on this 30 days/30 posts NaBloPoMo insanity. whew. so, i usually try to stay as far away from work here as…

take back your time

happy Monday, y’all! after a couple stupidly over-scheduled weeks at work, i’m definitely hoping for a little less intensity and a little more productivity this week. i was not at all pleased when Apple recently announced one more way to make sure you’re constantly connected and now literally physically attached. no thank you. i mean,…

3% in ATL

last fall, this Forbes article about the mismatch between female consumers and agency CDs caught my attention. and shocked me. did you know that women drive over 80% of purchasing decisions, yet the number of female creative directors at agencies hovers sadly around 3%? i don’t often write about work stuff here, but obviously, this…

that’s a wrap!

i can’t count the number of times over the past 6.5 years that i fantasized about writing my farewell email to Razorfish. there were angry versions, sappy versions, breezy versions, short versions, long versions, versions that included video, song lyrics and animated gifs, versions that referenced inside jokes and ghosts of other fallen fish ….
