⛰️ WordCamp Denver [This Weekend] & Sharing My Processes ✅ | The Blogsmith #120
By Maddy Osman • Issue #120 • View online
Hey Listies,
I have a lot of business news to share.
I also have a few different resources to offer you that dig into some of the important processes that help me to find business success.
I’ll be talking about:
  • Virtual WordCamp Denver — this Friday and Saturday
  • Bluehost’s Blogger Playbook & my contribution
  • 2-minute quick tip videos to skill up in content marketing for Kinsta

WordCamp Denver 2020 (Virtual):
Friday - Saturday, June 26 & 27
I’ve been helping to co-organize WordCamp Denver since I moved to Colorado.
We started planning for this event in early 2020 and had to shift things entirely after COVID-19 hit the US. Since that happened, many WordCamp events across the world have decided to test out virtual events — which is what we’re doing for WordCamp Denver this year.
As such, our audience has opened up significantly. We usually expect about 300 attendees in person — this year, we’re on track to surpass 2,000 tickets redeemed.
Join us — for free! 
Every year, I volunteer for a different organizer role, to try to understand different aspects of event management. This year, I was the sponsor wrangler and I’m really excited about the different ways our event was able to provide value to them — and vice versa.
I’ll also be doing a livestream session for WordCamp Denver:

Bluehost Blogger Playbook
My SEO Chapter
I recently started working with Bluehost as a client.
At the very beginning of our relationship, they asked me to contribute a chapter to an upcoming book they were adding to their Blueprint series
It was such a cool opportunity after snagging the last book in the series at WordCamp US 2019. Part of the deal we struck up involved them sending me several print copies.
It’s always exciting to see my ideas in print. I’m really excited with how my chapter (and the rest of the book) turned out. 
We’ll be digging into the content on a webinar with other chapter writers today at 2pm CST. Sign up for the webinar.
P.S. Speaking of books — I’m working with my friend Jeromy Sonne of Moonshine Marketing on another campaign to launch a book to Amazon bestseller status (Recruit Rockstars was our first success). 
Our latest project: promoting a graphic novel called Unrig: How to Fix Our Broken Democracy. It launches on July 7.
If it looks interesting, show your support by pre-ordering a copy.

Feeling grateful for the opportunity to work with @bluehost to contribute a chapter about SEO to the latest book in the Blueprint series. It's always a trip to see my words in print.

2-Minute Videos to Upskill in Content Marketing
Partnership with Kinsta
I recently struck up a new partnership with my long-time client, Kinsta.
We worked together to come up with three topics that could help people skill up:
  • How to do keyword research: watch video
  • How guest blogging can help you build backlinks & authority (plus, how to be effective): watch video
  • How to identify your audience and find content ideas they’ll appreciate: watch video
It’s been fun to go a little outside what I normally work on.
