I have some excellent news! And yes, it is more exciting than winning a year’s supply of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
(Definitely have not won a year’s supply of B&J ice cream.)
I am now a fully-fledged, Copyblogger certified content marketer.
Thank you, thank you!
It’s a bad habit, but I’m pretty naff at acknowledging my successes — or I dress it up in copy that comes off as over-confident and jokey, because I’m awkward at admitting I’m good at my job.
Erm, Rose. Sorry to stop you during this heartfelt admission, but what is this ‘Copyblogger’ Authority you speak of?
It’s OK, I had to explain the significance of it to my husband as well.
In a nutshell, Copyblogger is one of the top dogs in the world of content writing, marketing and (to some extent) copywriting. They are up there with Copyhackers, Content Marketing Institute and Hubspot.
They run a certification course called ‘Authority’. It offers content marketing training and the chance to submit an application to become a certified Copyblogger certified writer.
The application means submitting examples of your work to their board of highly-experienced, content editorial team. They go check the quality of your writing and you either pass or…well, I assume, or you don’t.
I mean I passed.
With a really high score (*cough* only dropped six marks *cough*).
So I couldn’t tell you what happens for anyone who doesn’t make the grade. Hopefully they are notified by kitten gifs to help ease the pain.
What I really like about it though, is that being certified by these guys and part of their network means I’ll continue to push myself, broaden my skills, and keep learning. Education only makes the copy stronger, right? In turn this means a better ROI for you.

Of course you do. It means you’ll get content that’s the bees knees.
