A few friends suggested I start a digital marketing blog (or something like it) where I can explore and demystify the digital landscape – from emerging technologies & platforms to creative advertising & media tactics, digipop culture to performance measurement. The good, bad and ugly. Sometimes very ugly.
In the future, I’ll recruit a few of my industry friends to make guest posts. Also, I’ll add a few educational pieces to help those interested in learning the ways of the force.
To mark the occasion, I dug up a few pics of some of the first incarnations of my personal blogs (2001, 2002, 2004). Pretty pathetic. I was rather obsessed with Flash.
My favorite remains the entirely flash-based custom Alice in Wonderland theme, with images likely stolen from Getty. I remember spending an inordinate amount of time animating wisps of light to dance around the fairies and transparent smoke plumes from the caterpillar’s hooka. Check them out below:
P.S. Yes, I know I’m using a free WordPress template. To be honest, I haven’t coded since 2007, thus my skills are quite diminished. I’ll monkey with the template over time, though it certainly gives me more empathy for the good folk at MRM Worldwide who take care of GM’s global Web platform.
