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 (Sept 22 – Sept 28, 2018) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. 24 Things I’ve Learnt About Creativity
I never pursued what I was passionate about, I just wasn’t someone who made things. I aspired to perhaps be a photographer, writer, designer, musician, etc, but never put in the work.
2. How to Get Traction With Your Creative Work
You’ve been creating, making, doing and stressing, and STILL, the traction isn’t there. What is traction? Traction is when increasingly more people engage with your creative work.
3. YouTube is Failing its Creators
YouTubers feel compelled to make nonstop videos, afraid to take breaks for fear of losing momentum, or worse, being reprimanded by the algorithm that decides what videos people see.
4. A Lightbulb is Not an Idea!
Creativity is the ability to imagine something that isn’t there — yet. Its core ingredient are ideas. An idea is a new thought that springs up from existing knowledge. Thoughts collide — something “clicks”.
5. Is the Podcast Bubble Bursting?
Podcasting was supposed to be one of the saviors of digital media—inexpensive, addicting, profitable, and popular. But now it’s like the old line: “That place is so popular, no one goes there any more.”
That’s all folks! You can view all the rest of the community’s top submissions (10 more) here.
