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. As per our submission rules, posts shared can not be older than 30 days, meaning that all of these are fresh and recent!
Here are this week’s (Jan 12 – Jan 18, 2019) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
