It occurred to me last week while I was at Content Marketing World meeting people and sharing my ideas about how structured content lets you do more with less, that I may have new visitors to my blog. And they might think, "Why bother? She hasn't updated it since June 20."
There is a good reason for that: I'm writing a book! And that is taking up all my spare brainpower. Maybe now you're thinking, "Oooh, a book! What's it about?"
It's called Designing Connected Content: Plan and Model Digital Products for Today and Tomorrow. The short story is it's about modeling, structured content, and a content-first process that helps you meet today's challenges of a crowded marketplace and prepares you for whatever is coming. And you can be sure that the next generation of people and devices is different than any we've seen before – except in the movies.
Stay tuned for more announcements as my co-author, Mike Atherton, and I finish our writing and editing and we have a release date. In the meantime, you can see more about what we're talking about in this Roundup post (we previously called it "Future-Friendly Content").
I'm still sending out my newsletter on a semi-regular basis. Subscribe to that and you'll get the latest thoughts and announcements about the future of content.
