Happy Friday (And New Year’s) everyone!
Welcome to another weekly round-up post from our growing community of bloggers, writers, vloggers, podcasters, and other fellow content creators. In short, 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 (Dec 29 – Jan 4, 2019) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. The Surprising Habits of Original Thinkers
How do creative people come up with great ideas? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies “originals”: thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world.
2. Ex-Inmate to Keep Making Podcast That Helped Him Win Freedom
Inmates typically are granted parole by doing good deeds or showing they have been rehabilitated by becoming pastors, drug counselors or youth advocates. For one man, the path was podcasting.
3. The Psychological Toll of Becoming an Instagram Influencer
Instagram can be hard to turn off, and that’s on purpose. The platform is literally built for the addictive scroll, with photos of a particular size that allow you to view the edge of the next photo.
4. Drawing is the Best Video Game
I was captivated by Gameboy games because I thought they were endless. As I grew up I beat them and realized their boundaries. Then, I became interested in drawing as a way to find the endlessness.
5. What Will Writing Look Like in 2019?
Every year, the world we know changes and becomes something new. In 2018, we saw the meteoric rise of artificial intelligence as the technology was largely embraced and became a part of our everyday lives.
