What's a content nerd win you had recently that other folks may not appreciate?

I like to say that I put the "information" in information technology.

I had a moment not too long ago where a blog title I wanted to roll with was exactly the character limit in HubSpot on the first try.

I threw my arms up in the air triumphantly and let out a little "woo!"...alone...in my wood-paneled basement...

I didn't share it with anyone because I didn't know anyone else that would appreciate that win in the process of what others may call "insider baseball" or "sausage making".

But we're a whole community of Content Managers and we know the satisfaction and the feeling of those types of wins!

Share yours and let's celebrate 🎉

Adam Stahl Great post!

It's Friday morning and I have all my content staged and scheduled for next week!  That's a pretty great feeling.

I'd be lying if I said a smile doesn't spread across my face when I open up the Calendar in HubSpot and all the days for an upcoming week have content publish boxes on them. 😁

Just like yours, I love typing a meta description and hitting the final period as the character limit gets to zero. Doesn't happen often, but when it does....

Love it, John Becker  ! It's almost the equivalent of when you're cutting wrapping paper and the scissors just start to glide.

I thought about this question over the weekend and there were two that came to mind. 

1. Finding that perfect image that both matches the topic perfectly AND is willing to optimize down to a scale that won't hurt your article's speed performance.

2. Going into search tools and discovering a new search term your industry hasn't written much about but customers are asking. That opportunity lights a fire in me and the clients I work with, which makes me even more excited to create that content!

Both of those are great feelings! I just experienced #1 again yesterday and with #2, there's also that fun, "really? no one else is writing about this?" moment as you see that opportunity before you.
