If It's Wednesday, This Must Be Columbus: Twelve Ways To Make Content InterestingAnother day, another marketing event!

I’ve been excited about this trip to Content Marketing World 2012 (#CMWorld) for some time. For one, it’s the largest gathering of content marketing professionals in the world. Two, it’s presented by our friends at the Content Marketing Institute. Three, I’m heavily involved in content marketing and am excited to meet so many other people who are versed in the same stuff.

I’m on the train headed to the Hubspot Inbound Conference 2012 in Boston.
