Writer’s Block

Every once in a while I get a serious case of writer’s block when it comes to this site.  Happens every year and a half or so.  And I’m waist-deep into a good bout of it right now, to the point that I even had to bow out of submitting a guest article (not something I wanted to do or am proud of, mind you).

So, I’m stepping away from it all for a few days.

Look for new news and updates to resume next week.

REMINDER: BAF Event – Meet the Judges

Two things:

1) A reminder — the Boise Advertising Federation’s Meet the Judges event is this Thursday, February 25th, starting at 5:30 p.m.

2) Perhaps lost in the initial notice was this: Submit your questions in advance for a chance to win free admission to the 2010 Rockie Awards.  The top four questions selected from those received by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 23rd will get free admission to this year’s Rockies.  Questions should be sent to JudgesQ&A@nootgroup.com.
