Happy Friday 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 (Jan 5 – Jan 11, 2019) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. Podcast: ‘The Writer’s Brain’ on Productivity vs. Creativity: Part One
As busyness, the cult of productivity, and multitasking seem to take over our lives, it’s easy to forget that the origins of the word productivity comes from the Latin, productivitas. Translation: creative power.
2. 5 Timeless Ways to Earn Your Audience’s Time and Attention
There’s no way around it. To succeed with content in 2019, you have to go beyond the ordinary. You have to rise well above the sea of thin, mediocre content that floods our inboxes and Facebook feeds.
3. Why the Best Content Happens Fast
There is no correlation between the time invested in content and the performance of that content. This is either the best thing about content marketing or the most frustrating. It depends on how you look at it.
4. The Rise and Demise of RSS
The future once looked so bright for RSS. What happened? Was its downfall inevitable, or was it precipitated by the bitter infighting that thwarted the development of a single RSS standard?
5. Confessions of a Recovering Perfectionist
Barry Bonds hit 762 home runs in his career. He also struck out more than most other players. He succeeded because he picked the bat and swung a lot. Today nobody remembers his failures.
That’s all folks! You can view all the rest of the community’s top submissions (11 more) here.
Tune in next Friday for another great weekend reading list that will make you a better and more informed blogger, writer, and/or content creator! If you have anything awesome to submit that others might enjoy, feel free to do so!
