Happy Friday everyone!
Welcome to another weekly round-up post from our growing community of bloggers, writers, vloggers, podcasters, and other fellow creatives. 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 the following are fresh and recent!
Here are this week’s (Feb 2 – Feb 8, 2019) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. How to Be Creative
You know how you’ve got this image of the creator as a somewhat crazy, slightly unbalanced person lost in his or her own head? You are one, too! Everyone – adults and children alike – has a creative streak.
2. Three Writing Rules to Disregard
The English language is not so easily ruled and regulated. It has no enforceable laws, much less someone to enforce the laws it doesn’t have. Certain prose rules are essentially inarguable.
3. On Why You Must Keep Moving
Comedian, writer, and actor Yassir Lester on finding the rhythm that works for you, being present while moving forward, and being comfortable with letting ideas go. From a conversation with Rona Akbari.
4. Synchronicity: How to Create Your Own Luck
You can’t create luck but you can adjust your exposure to luck by managing your actions. The more intention you apply, and the better that intention aligns with reality, the less you leave up to chance.
5. FuckJerry’s Success Is Instagram’s Failure
Instagram, the billion-dollar Facebook subsidiary, has been aware of the account @fuckjerry, a “meme account”, that screenshots funny tweets and viral videos for years and has done nothing to curb its theft of IP.
That’s all folks! You can view all the rest of the community’s top submissions (15 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!
