I may come across as a grumpy old ******* here but I'm not unapproachable. If you need any help with your copy or would like some resources sent to you, just drop me a PM or email me - or even pester me on Skype. I don't have a lot of time. I come here as a distraction to what I'm currently working on - usually half-a-dozen projects at once. I come here for the comeraderie, the laughs and yes - to stir things up. But that doesn't mean i don't like to help people. I started in this biz at 16. LOL. By door-knocking agencies. I scored a gig with J. Walter Thompson (at the time the world's biggest and best advertising agency) and began as a Despatch Boy - as you did back then - on take home pay of $16.20 - and had to do a lot of nasty tasks and take a lot of sh*t from advertising types.
I can't really speak for others here but I'm sure a lot of them feel the same - they love to help people up the ladder - if they have the time and if you're willing to learn.
Now back to my usual schtick - "Get out - no copy for you!"
The Copy Nazi
p.s. if you're going to Skype me at least write a brief message of what you want - not just "Dillbrain would like to add you to his contacts and know when you're available". I get a lot of time-wasters that just want to pick my brains, spam me or ask my price for "article-writing" or "copy righting". WTF? And here's a clue - make your Skype message funny or interesting - pitch me. Don't bore the crap out of me or I'm likely to ignore you.
