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 (Aug 4 – Aug 10, 2018) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. The More You Can Do Hard Things, the More Success You’ll Achieve
It is by doing hard things that we become “harder” ourselves — more resilient, resourceful, and creative. This will increase our influence, which increases our affluence.
2. 25 Lessons I’ve Learned After Writing 100 Posts
I’ve been writing seriously on Medium for about a year. I’ve written about 100 posts since then. I’ve also gained 25,000+ new email subscribers. I’ve been writing for 5 years.
3. How to Make Students Care About Writing
Pirette McKamey, a veteran English teacher, spent 30 years investigating what helps young people to view themselves as writers. This story is the second in our series.
4. How I Maintain a Strong Belief in My Creative Work
Isn’t there enough art in the world already? Why would I need to create yet more content? How can I stay motivated if there are thousands of people out there who make amazing art?
5. How to Give and Receive Constructive Criticism
Giving and receiving feedback is an important part of being a writer—or any kind of artist, really. But that doesn’t mean it’s always fun. It might be just as essential as raw writing talent.
That’s all folks! You can view all the rest of the community’s top submissions (13 more) here.
