What was once merely an April Fool’s Day gag is now part of the real world of EzineArticles … and a reward for those who have already completed the #HAHD 4 Marathon Challenge!
Less than 3 months ago, we had a little April Fool’s Day fun at our members’ expense by running a Blog post featuring a mythical line of highly-caffeinated beverages called Author’s Brew. These beverages were said to be formulated for the unique demands of article writers and marketers and were guaranteed to help you write and submit more high-quality, original articles than ever before.
When we revealed the ruse, many people were disappointed. They had genuinely hoped for a line of high-octane beverages designed for the special needs of sleep-deprived authors. It didn’t take us long to realize that we needed to make Author’s Brew more than just a figment of our somewhat twisted imaginations. So we got to work developing a beverage that was just a bit more “tangible.”
Introducing: (The Real) Author’s Brew.
A generous blend of Kona and other medium-roast Arabica beans, Author’s Brew is a smooth, yet robust and flavorful coffee. Its delicious aroma and light acidity disguise its invigorating kick. With 135mg of caffeine per 8oz serving, it’s guaranteed to help prevent and eliminate many common productivity killers like:
- Writer’s Block …
- Afternoon Slump …
- Motivation Deficit …
- Garden Variety Laziness …
- Early Morning Hard Starts …
- and an Overall Lack of Ideas!
The first members to receive these coveted packets of delicious coffee will be those who have taken up the #HAHD 4 Marathon Challenge in a big way by already completing their first 100 articles! Those 75 members will not only enjoy the benefits of increased traffic, heightened exposure and awesome credibility, they’ll also get to enjoy a fabulous cup of Author’s Brew coffee.
The next batch will be sent out to all #HAHD 4 qualifiers – along with a mug and coaster to complete the set.
If demand is great enough, we intend to sell Author’s Brew outright to Members and non-members alike. So please leave a comment to let us know if you’re interested. And thanks again for the inspiration! :-)
Before wrapping up this post, I wanted to share the following free-verse ode to Author’s Brew written by Justin, a member of our Editorial Team.
by Justin P.
Ahh … coffee.
My morning friend.
My daily support which provides me with caffeine to gently accelerate my day and the antioxidants I need to feel better about my relationship with you.
I believe too much of you is a good thing, even though some might disagree.
The other day you seemed a little different, though.
You changed somehow.
You weren’t as bitter as you sometimes can be, as if a weight had been lifted from your shoulders.
You also had an extra kick that I crave more of.
Do I dare say “invigorating”, or would this offend the sensibilities of the company you normally keep in Folgerland?
Perhaps the gold and shiny new appearance you have is an indication that you are becoming more cultured, more refined.
There’s been a rumor that you are setting out for new territory, namely to enrich the lives of our authors here at EzineArticles and to put new pep into their writing efforts.
If this is the case, you are dressed up just right for the occasion!
Alas, if you want to make new friends and inspire others, you have my support.
Who am I to stand in your way?
With my head hanging low, I’ll try to enjoy the remnants of roasted awesomeness you’re leaving behind.
Back in Folgerland I will remember and savor the time I had with the newly blended you and await your return.
In my humble yet discerning coffee-loving opinion, what I’m trying to say is, I like the new you!
