Good day everyone!
Welcome to the inaugural “weekly round-up” post from our ever-growing community of bloggers, vloggers, podcasters, and other content creators. Every week we will be hand-picking five top posts from a pool of the highest voted user-submitted/created posts in the community and including them in this weekly “listicle” blog post, along with the newsletter for all of our blog subscribers.
The primary goal is to provide exceptional value for our members/subscribers in the form of awesome weekly content, particularly so we can continue growing the community with even more awesome like-minded people.
But we’re also looking to demonstrate our point about the additional invaluable advantages our blog is getting by utilizing this awesome functionality never available before. By leading by example, we really hope we can attract some of you to get on board with the Snapzu platform and start your own community that will open up new opportunities for you as much as it does for us. If you see the value, you need to jump on board!
So without further ado, here are this week’s most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. The Inconvenient Truths About Getting Work Done
Humans are prolific procrastinators. People have struggled with habitual hesitation going back to ancient civilizations. It’s easy to make plans and throw dates on your calendar, and yet it’s practically inevitable that you’ll let some deadlines fly whilst you still have some tasks unfinished.
2. Should Writers Fear the Rise of Video?
Few things in human history have been as influential as the written word. Writing has toppled empires, built global corporations, and inspired millions, if not billions of people. For decades, writers have played a chief role in marketing. David Ogilvy once wrote, “advertising is a business of words.” But will it always be?
3. When Should We Ignore Criticism?
A fairly well-known and respected graphic designer once openly criticized something I had written and shared publicly. He did a poor job with his feedback however, as his only remark—in its entirety—was: “This guy doesn’t get it.”
4. WPCampus 2017 Will Be Streamed Live for Free
WPCampus, a conference focused on using WordPress in higher education, takes place this Friday and Saturday in Buffalo, NY. If you’re unable to attend the event, WPCampus will be live streaming the sessions for free.
5. An Overnight Success
I graduated college with a degree in creative writing—and actually, fiction writing, to be specific. For those that don’t know, creative writing doesn’t tend to be a very lucrative field, nor is that sort of degree thought to be very valuable. I remember sitting in multiple classes throughout my college experience, my teachers making jokes of the poverty that comes with writing.
That’s all folks! Tune in next Friday for another great list that you won’t want to miss! Be sure to subscribe our newsletter if you’d like them emailed to you on a weekly basis, and join the /t/BES community if you would like to participate with other fellow content creators!
