My week began with an early morning viewing of the new show American Gods. Last year, two trusted friends insisted that I read the book before the show came out. I do what I'm told (sometimes) and in this case am better for it. Sipping my coffee, I savored every minute of the episode even though...
Time is flying by and while I refuse to start counting days, I know there are not many left. Dylan begins college in the fall and the emotions that come with preparing for it have been hard and swinging. We are a tight family. I hug and kiss my kids goodbye and good night every day....
The moment you add an event to your calendar titled "Dylan & Dad's College Road Trip" you know that emotions are going to be a bit messy. Not as messy as last week when an entire week worth of Senior events was added including one titled "Dylan Graduates." We even had to go and buy him...
Words have been hard to come by lately. No, that isn't exactly true. There have been plenty of words, but I've been writing them down elsewhere. Leaving this spot alone. They've been anger fueled and tinged with a layer of neon orange slime. Not the words I want to share. Not the energy I want to throw out...
Men and women are different. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be treated equally. Around the globe this weekend, on all seven continents, millions of humans marched. Each who chose to show up did so for their own reasons. My reasons were simple. As a father, I marched to show my daughter that I support her. I wanted...
It is a proud moment in any parent’s lives when their child is accepted to college. The moment our son received his acceptance letter to his first choice will never be forgotten. You get to check off another accomplishment proving that you did ok as parents. Soon after the hugs and fist bumps were done...
I've been outlining my keynote for next month's IzeaFest and one of my scribbles reads "stop creating only to satisfy an algorithm." The more I pondered it and how I might represent it on a slide, the more I realized I wanted to write about this specific epidemic because it bothers me to my core. There...
The calendars have been flipped and 2017 is upon us. A fresh start and we don't know if the car is going to crash over the cliff, handle all of the curves or keep on driving off into the sunset. I'm full of worries for the world around me. Anyone with half of an open mind...
Letters pour off the hallway walls as you walk to the elevator. Typewriters hang on the wall and hold menus for you. You are not in some hipster gin infused dream, but find yourself at The Press Hotel in Portland, Maine. I awoke there recently and noticed that the desk chair had the familiar "The quick brown fox...
Out of all the things I create, I enjoy pulling together my year in photos the best. Scrolling through all of the photos I take and share brings back memories of the little things I forgot. The trips that blend together. The faces, places and meals shared. These roundups are not of my "best" photos, but...

When asked what I do my current answer is, “I create, teach and motivate people to do more good in the world.”
Of course, that doesn’t cover all that I work on professionally and personally, so that is why I created this page.
Official bios and headshots can be found below.
Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…
Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.
If I had to choose a style, I’d say my photos are a mix of documentary, travel and lifestyle photography. While I may not enjoy taking head shots, I love to shoot faces. I rarely go anywhere without a camera in my hand and I’ve been fortunate to see my photos on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
I’m currently shooting with a Canon 80D, an iPhone 7+ and a Chroma 4k Drone.
With over twenty years of marketing, online media and community building experience I have the skills and experience to help your organization no matter the size. Previous clients have included The Coca-Cola Company, American Eagle Outfitters and HBO.
I focus on social good/impact marketing, content marketing and brand strategy. My favorite clients are NGOs, nonprofits or brands looking to make a difference in the world.
Feel free to double check my credentials on LinkedIn.
I’m happiest when on stage educating and inspiring an audience of any size, anywhere in the world.
I have spoken at everything from large international events, corporate retreats and at special gatherings of unique individuals. If you need someone who will inspire, educate and entertain your audience I’d love to chat.
I believe in using my skills, time and voice to champion causes that are important to me. I’m especially interested in anything military, dogs or children focused.
On top of all that I’m a proud life long New Englander who was born and raised in New Hampshire, but now resides outside of Boston.
I married my high school sweetheart, have two amazing kids and love being a dad.
I’ve been online since 1989, began blogging in 2002 and podcasting in 2004.
Previous endeavors I created include Accident Hash, Passion Hit TV, Digital Dads and The Advance Guard.
Tattoos, travel and the outdoors turn me on. There are fewer things more perfect than a well-done cocktail, a delicious meal or live art of any sort. I love my GORUCK, Field Notes and am a proud Misfit.
To understand me is to understand that I try to live a purposeful life every day that is full of adventure, love and making the world around me a better place for all.
C.C. Chapman describes himself as a New England raised storyteller, explorer, and humanitarian. Others have described him as a thought leader in the online marketing space, a grounded futurist and one the nicest guy on the Internet. Over the years of his career, he has worked with a variety of clients including Nike, HBO, American Eagle Outfitters, ONE, Verizon FiOS and The Coca-Cola Company.
He is the co-author of the International bestseller Content Rules and is also the author of Amazing Things Will Happen. He travels the world speaking in front of audiences to do more in the world and how to understand content marketing better. C.C. has taught classes for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and now as an adjunct professor at Bentley University (where he also graduated from).

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more multi-faceted or enthusiastic creative/strategic partner in the marketing and content creation fields. This greatly hails from C.C.’s unstoppable combination of marketing experience and savvy (which a great many professionals claim to have), and incalculably valuable “on the ground” knowledge and insight as an influential content creator himself (which a great many professionals do not). The result is a best-of-both-worlds mashup of marketing expertise.
C.C. Chapman sports the pro cred to be a talker (working closely with such clients as American Eagle Outfitters, Coca-Cola, HBO and Warner Bros.), and the passion and gumption to be a doer (creating content for the emerging Online Dad market, marketing professionals, music fans and more). He’s helped create, manage and execute ambitious online and offline marketing campaigns for startups and multinationals — and has the invaluable good sense to know which outreach strategies work with audiences, and which ones fall flat.
He authoritatively speaks your language. He speaks your CMO’s language. Most important, he’s fluent in your market’s language. It’s a killer double-chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination. Contact C.C. to learn how he can help your organization achieve its business goals. There’s, even more, to know about C.C. Chapman if you want to read it — and you should. C.C.’s skills are an embarrassment of riches.
I’m involved with a lot of organizations and clients. I believe in being completely transparent and open about everything I’m working on. I’ll do my best to keep this updated and of course, will clearly disclose relationships in any post that require them.
I am open to being pitched and invited on press trips.
Companies do send me items in the hopes that I will review it or share with my community. If you send me something it does not guarantee a review.
With that in mind, my mailing address is:
