Happy Friday everyone!
Welcome to another weekly round-up post from our growing community of bloggers, writers, vloggers, podcasters, and other fellow content creators. Each and every week we hand-pick five top posts from a pool of the highest voted user-submitted/created posts in the community and include them in this weekly round-up blog post, along with the newsletter for all of our e-mail subscribers.
Here are this week’s (July 14 – July 20, 2018) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. The Genius Study: What Determines Creative Success?
In Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s mind, it’s the process of creativity that makes one’s life fulfilling. In the 1990s, he interviewed 91 of the most successful people to uncover what it is that made them different.
2. The Content Path: Moving from Attention to Action
We work so hard to get attention. We craft our headlines to make them irresistible. We strive to display enticing images that make a great first impression. But what do we do with attention once we get it?
3. The Twitch Streamers Who Spend Years Broadcasting to No One
Starting a career on platforms like Twitch often means spending some time broadcasting to absolutely no one. Discoverability is an issue and the most visible people are those who already have a large following.
4. Motivational Art: Mistakes Are The Key to Success
Powerful illustration by Stephan Schmitz, brilliantly illustrating what takes many steps to get to the top (the stage) while symbolizing the mistakes that come along the way, using broken dishes to get the point across.
5. I Wrote 100 Blog Posts In 100 Days. Here’s What I Learned.
For the past 100 days, I have been writing a daily blog. When I started this thing, the idea was to make myself creative, make myself push my own boundaries and find a way to break the patterns. And it’s actually worked.
That’s all folks! You can view all the rest of the community’s top submissions (14 more) here.
