Hey there ad people of the world! (And I really mean the world, 'cause I'm in charge of visitor monitoring and you won't believe in how many places we get read) A year of WAS is coming soon... Just to think about how this all started... One Saturday I was bored and stayed home and decided to write something. Called up some friends of mine and boom! Now we have this wonderful place at the net that we lovingly call WAS.
This has been a place to do many things.
For RestrictionsApply, it's a place to leave all his wisdom (I for one consider this man a true mentor) and bitch slightly about the job he loves to hate. Without him, we sometimes we wouldn't go: shit, he has a point. He's the relaxed one of the bunch, since he has been doing this shit way more time than any of us. I could only wish you had the pleasure of having some drinks with the dude and listen to him talk business.
For Joker... well, let's just say I think he uses WAS to write all his fantasies about going postal on someone. Damn, dude. Do you kill for hire? Just kidding. Oh, and let's not forget all his wonderful dick jokes. Genius. As you might have read, he's the angriest of us and with a damn point every single time. He's the one who channels all our frustrations and pure evil anger, and damn it I truly respect that from him. He was the first to install extreme foul language in this blog and I for one applaud him for this. He taught me that this is how we talk, how we think and how we live. And if someone gets offended by it, so be it.
For TravisFckr... it's a place where he reads and silently agrees with everything we say, and once in a blue moon we get (well, I post them for him) cool stuff from all the websites he visits, daily. No, honestly, most of the things I write here are in some way what we talk all day at the office. What happens to us, what we endure day by day. If you knew how many times he bugs me to write about stuff and I don't have the balls to do it. You would be surprised.
And for Me? I think I use it to write whatever the fuck I want, with no restrictions whatsoever, without a worry that I might offend someone down the line. Honestly? I just think writing this blog for me has been a sort of journal (well, I do write about what happens from time to time), but all I think about is all the young dudes and dudettes that are starting out. I sometimes wish I can help them in some way to not make the same mistakes I made along the way. In all my time here I have had two major things happen to me: I got feedback from the girl who left her job (post's name is "Somewhere in this world there is a woman with balls") and learned that my post helped and made her feel happier. The other? Getting nominated at the Ad Blog Wars. I felt that we all had achieved something big, more than any ad prize there is.
Well, sorry for the sentimental post and because it's long. I'd just like to say thank you for reading and we truly hope to keep making you think, laugh and going "what the fuck?" once in a while.
Oh, and another thing? Should we quit writing in September or do we keep at it? Let us know...
