It’s playoff time for the National Football League. Whether you like sports or not, this information is going to cross your path.

Here at Content Runner, we are constantly trying to reach out to both of Users and Writers to get constructive feedback on what we can do to make your experience even better.

Trendy in 2014: Finding an Audience for Your Content Using Top Topic Lists

Trendy in 2014: Finding an Audience for Your Content Using Top Topic Lists

One of the trickiest things after creating or purchasing content is deciding where to put it. Sure, it goes on your website, but how do you know which social media network is most likely to spread it around? Is it relevant to current or ongoing conversations on a specific social media site?

Google, Facebook and Twitter have all released their 2014 “year in review” roundups, and even […]

The Team That Plays Together, Stays Together

The Team That Plays Together, Stays Together

The thing with work is that even when you love your job, it’s work. I love editing with a shameless passion (and I will throw down over Oxford commas and dangling modifiers), but day after day of the same thing, no matter how enjoyable, can become tiresome. Luckily, I work for an awesome company, and we’re more like a team than an office. And, although I’m no expert on sports, I’m fairly sure teams generally like to play. To boost our spirits and give our busy brains a break during […]

Take a Tour of Our Office!

While many of our Writers and Users are constantly on-the-go, the vast majority of our team spends the week hiding out in our office located just a few minutes south of Seattle. In the spirit of factory tours that have come before us, e.g. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, we bring you the official tour of the Content Runner office, featuring Stacy Rost as Gene Wilder. In spite of the fact that we don’t have a chocolate river or a Bubble Room, we have a great space filled with […]

Pubcon 2013 Takeaways

After 48 hours in Las Vegas, I’m worn out – but it was a great time! This was my 4th Pubcon, but the first one that I attended with an exhibition instead of a full access pass. I don’t have a lot of feedback on the sessions as I didn’t attend any, but the word I kept hearing was that there wasn’t a lot of earth shattering information shared. For me the real value in Pubcon is connecting with old friends and making new connections and that came through in […]
