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 19 – Jan 25, 2019) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. What is Concise Writing, and Why Does it Matter?
Have you ever lost interest while reading something long-winded and rambling? You aren’t alone. Concise writing means using the fewest words possible to convey an idea clearly.
2. Influencers Aren’t The Problem — They’re Just Trying To Make It In A Broken System
A writer and IG influencer who was recently selling $165 USD tickets to a series of creativity workshops was widely mocked online after struggling with the practicalities of delivering them.
3. Sam Altman: How To Be Successful
Although the post is focused more on entrepreneurship, rather than specifically blogging or creativity, Sam Altman lays out 13 points on how to build something important like a business or blog.
4. Your Time Is Running Out. Are You Wasting It?
“We’re all on time that we borrowed from the universe, and our supply is running out. So what do we do? What do we do, now that we feel we might have wasted more time than we have left?”
5. Study: The Most Effective Mental Strategies To Get Through Aversive Challenges
Researchers started with a pilot study in which they presented 100’s of participants with challenging scenarios, then asked them to list any strategies they’d typically use to push through to the end.
That’s all folks! You can view all the rest of the community’s top submissions (12 more) here.
