How the Grinch Stole Your Authority

Every Who
Down in Who-ville
Craved authority a lot …

But the Grinch,
Who lived just North of Who-ville,
Did NOT!

Now, Authority Intensive is not until May,
But your wallet may suffer if the Grinch has his way.

Darren Rowse Joins Seth Godin as a Keynote Speaker for Authority Intensive

I call him the nicest guy on the Internet, and he thinks I’m teasing him. I’m not.

Darren Rowse is someone I’m proud to call a friend, but he’s way more than that. He was an early inspiration to me — and countless thousands of others — to get into this whole blogging thing in the first place.

He even helped inspire the brand Copyblogger, which was initially intended to complement and augment the term he coined for those who took commercial online content creation seriously — Probloggers.

Ah, the challenge of writing about Seth Godin.

The process: Write 12 paragraphs of embarrassing mush. Delete. Ponder.

Write 12 more paragraphs of really embarrassing mush. Delete. Despair.

Because “Seth Godin is awesome” is a terrible marketing cliché. And like a lot of clichés, there’s a good reason for that.

Around the Copyblogger Media virtual offices, we’ve been squeeing all over our shoes very pleased to learn that Seth Godin will be keynoting our first major live event, Authority Intensive, taking place May 7-9, 2014, in beautiful Denver, Colorado.

Save the Date: Authority Intensive, May 7-9, 2014

The month of May in Denver, Colorado is absolutely spectacular. And we’d like to invite you to come on over and take your content marketing game to a new level, while also having a great time.

Authority Intensive is Copyblogger’s first large-scale live event. We’ve had spectacular feedback from the smaller live events we’ve done, so we’re now ready to throw a bigger party.

But it won’t be too big. We’ll be limiting attendance so that we can provide something the “big box” conference can’t. And of course we’ll make it the best intensive education you’ll see in all of 2014.

No tickets to sell you yet. Just an FYI, so you can start planning your event calendar for next year accordingly. :)

More soon …
