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 21 – July 27, 2018) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. There Ain’t No Such Thing as Free Lunch in Content Marketing
Obviously, as the saying goes, “there ain’t no such thing as free lunch.” Someone always has to pay, it’s just that the cost can be externalized, indirect, or in the form of an opportunity cost.
2. Web Comic: Small Decisions
Cartoonist Guy Downes ingeniously illustrates how a small decision (like a 1 degree course change) made now can have a massive impact later on in the journey. This is also true of compound growth.
3. The History of WordPress
Today WordPress powers more than 31% of all websites on the internet. In this article, we take a look back at the history of WordPress and how it evolved over the past fifteen years.
4. Podcast: From 180 to 16,000 Subscribers in 4 Months
Anthony Moore is a top writer these days. After a career in career-counseling, he opted to switch gears, ditching the full-time jobs and traveling the world (and oh yeah, blogging!).
5. 9 Tools Every (Serious) Writer Should Know About
Michael Mulders is a software developer who writes about his work . He took the time to put together an extended list of useful resources that help him greatly along the way.
