All Our Copyblogger Posts on One Page!

Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 9.16.43 AMIn the summer of 2011, I went to New York for the first time. I was impressed. The city was huge. The bridges were huge. The subway system was huge. 

But then I ran into this Sean Platt guy, and I realized that those things were nothing compared to the size of his nose. 

(Waits for ironic applause.)

What was interesting, all jokes aside, was the way Sean and I immediately clicked. We’d literally never met in person, but in truth we knew each other already. We shared a bond and mutual respect right away, thanks to

Copyblogger, in case you don’t know, is a hugely popular blog and our favorite writing and marketing site on the Internet (even Dave considers Copyblogger as “one of the good ones”). 

When I first started out, getting a coveted guest post on Copyblogger was one of my biggest goals. It was something I considered necessary in order to gain the authority I’d need to make the impact I wanted to make. Sean, who started out online at around the same time, had the exact same plan. 

Copyblogger doesn’t settle for less than best. They do everything top-notch, down to the platform we built the Sterling & Stone website on (Rainmaker) and the conference we recently attended in Denver (Authority Intensive). If you can get a guest post on Copyblogger, it’s one way to show the world that you’re worth listening to. 

To be heard and make a difference as we built our businesses, we needed authority. And if we wanted authority, we had to prove ourselves worthy of Copyblogger.

At that first meeting in New York, Sean and I had the respect we needed to make an instant friendship possible. We had F-List internet fame — enough to know we’d get along. So we went to lunch. We talked about how to write autoresponder emails, and how awesome they were. (Seriously.)

If it weren’t for Copyblogger, Sean and I would never have met. There would be no Realm & Sands. There would be no Self-Publishing Podcast. There would be no Sterling & Stone — at least, not in the form you see here today. 

Below, we’ve listed all of the posts we wrote at Copyblogger over the years. Each of them has stood the test of time. Each is jam-packed with great information that (and it was amazingly awesome to see this) is still totally relevant and important to us, today, here and now, as we build Sterling & Stone.

  1. I saw the list earlier today as I couldn’t resist clicking that big button in the sidebar. Didn’t get time to read any posts though, since both my kids dropped by 🙂

    So I’m very much looking forward to reading them over the next couple of days (or more, if they’re long), and both get a glimpse of the things you wrote about then, and the useful information that I’m sure will be found there too.

    But it’ll have to wait until tomorrow, because my night reading is devoted to Unicorn Western right now, and since it’s bed time here, I’ll hug my Kindle, and try not to highlight the whole book. But there are so many awesome passages with Edward, that they should have their own hall of fame. I literally laugh out loud at times! I love reading it 😀

    • Oh, it turns out, that the “then” wasn’t that long ago 🙂
      I didn’t know you still wrote for copyblogger from time to time. But a great response you get there. Good marketing value in itself.

    Hey Guys, these articles are fantastic. Just finished reading Johnny’s “How To Write Your Ass Off” and loved it. I will defiantly read the rest. Thanks for including them on Sterling and Stone.

      That one was a coup because I totally didn’t think I could get them to use “ass” in a headline.
