Do you ever have one of those weeks where you feel like you've lived an entire year in the span of three days? That's how I'm feeling right now. And whenever I get this way, I have a tendency to burst into childish temper tantrums over inconsequential things.

For example, today, I find myself irrationally angry at Ludacris:

ludacris

Did his bops dominate most of my mix CDs in the late 1990s and early 2000s? Absolutely. Did I enthusiastically applaud his inclusion in The Fast and the Furious series, one of the most prolific movie franchises of all time? You betcha.

But none of this changes the fact that — thanks to Ludacris — it took me six whole minutes of staring into space earlier today before I finally admitted to myself that I needed to Google the right spelling of "ludicrous." 

I already feel like a word nerd fraud because I have to say "Connect-icut" and "Wed-NES-day" out loud every single time, in order to spell those two words correctly. Now this? 

I appreciate that you taught me how and when I need to "stand up" and/or "get out of the way," but this is a bridge too far. To make amends, Mr. 'Cris, I humbly suggest your next LP's featured single be a spelling lesson, vis-à-vis your name and its origins. 

Thank you in advance for your consideration — now, let's get into the latest in digital sales and marketing news...

The topic of website accessibility is back in the spotlight as a result of a 2016 lawsuit from Guillermo Robles against Domino’s for not having an accessible website for blind or visually impaired visitors. But when a federal court sided with Robles on the case, Domino’s petitioned the Supreme Court to hear its case. In this article, IMPACT Content Marketing Consultant Jolie Higazi explains the particulars of the Domino's website accessibility case and what business website owners need to know about site accessibility.

⏰ Throwback Thursday

Late last year — after many, many moons spent writing into the wee hours of the morning — I finally published this pillar:

how to create a content style guide

It was a momentous occasion for me to two reasons. First, this was the topic of my talk from #INBOUND17, my very first big speaking gig. Second, it outlines a process I spent years developing and testing on my own, and then I wrote the pillar entirely by myself. 

In short, it's as close to an "act of love" as you'll ever get from me, in the professional sense. And I hope you enjoy it.
