My Favorite Photos I Took in 2008

I saw the post 30 Favorite Flickr Photos from 2008 by Steve Garfield and I wondered if I could narrow down my favorites. Instead of trying I just went through every photo I had posted in 2008 and tagged the ones I liked as a favorite. I think this is something I might try...

Starting the New Year

A new year is upon us. What will go down in the history books as the year of ______ has just started. Of course that blank will be filled with numerous different photos, headlines and names. Some we know, some we don't. Ten years from now what will be the biggest thing remembered about...

The Honeymoon is Over for Social Media

On my latest episode of Managing the Gray I made the statement that "the honeymoon is over for social media." I said it as an off hand comment that came to mind, but the more I think about it the more I firmly believe what I said. I don't mean that social media is dead,...

A Chapman Family Christmas

In case you haven't figured it out, I'm very much a family guy. I love spending time with members of my family both here at home and anywhere they may gather. We stayed home for Christmas day, but then headed up to New Hampshire to see both Laura's parents and mine for the weekend. It...

The Bloggers Have Won

I must have seen 5-10 different versions of this video clip from Valkyrie that people have replaced the subtitles with a variety of things. Now, the gang from Age of Conversation 2 have had some fun with it. As an author in this book I want to encourage you to buy a copy of...

2008 Chapman Holiday Photo

This is the photo we used in our holiday cards this year. I'm really psyched how it came out with even Roxie looking at the camera.

The After Christmas Chaos

Christmas was great in the Chapman household. There is a living room full of boxes right now that we'll have to leave out by the curb tonight in a nice organized pile of chaos. Garbage men must HATE the holidays because of all the extra boxes and crap they have to pick up. Only weekend...

On The Day Before Christmas

It is the morning before Christmas in the Chapman house and that means the kids are off from school and I'm trying to finish up a few tasks I have left before taking some well earned vacation. The end of the year always gets me reflective. Yesterday I asked on Twitter what accomplishment people were...

Snow Filled Family Weekend

The snow started falling on Friday afternoon and didn't stop until long after dark last night. In total we got somewhere around 15-17 inches in total. Everything is white and we had fun playing out in the snow. Of course it'll be slush by the end of the week as the forecast is calling...

A Great Birthday

Thank you to everyone for all the birthday wishes. Between all the social networks and other fun gathering spots on the web it reminded me of just how many great people I've connected with. Then this morning I noticed this video from DJ Steen. I just watched it and I'm still laughing. The family and I...

Sketch of C.C. Chapman by Hey Instigator!There are many aspects OF who I am and what I do. Putting together THIS PAGE is one of my least favorite things to write, because talking about myself is not my idea of a fun time.

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 head shots can be found below.

Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…

Marketing Consultant

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 constantly writing and always working on my next book. You may have read some of my published works including Amazing Things Will HappenContent Rules or 101 Steps to Making Video Like a Pro.

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 Samsung NX1 and a Chroma 4k Drone.

My photos can be found on InstagramFlickr and 500px.

Keynote Speaker

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.

Advocate & Volunteer

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.

I’m currently the President of the Board at Wediko, a member of the ONE Girls & Women Advisory Board, serve on the board of The Hockey Foundation and recently joined the No Kid Hungry Social Council.


I’ve developed and taught courses for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and Treehouse. I’m also an Adjunct Professor of Marketing at Bentley University and hoping to do more teaching in the future.


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.

Fun Bio

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:

9 C Medway Road #117
Milford, MA

Current relationships include:

  • Verizon FiOS provides me with service in exchange for a monthly post on technology of my choosing
  • Member of the Verizon Wireless VZWBuzz Influencer Team which means I receive electronics to review and experiences to take part in.
