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 9 – Feb 15, 2019) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. You Don’t Need to Quit Your Job to Make/Create
I’m Steph. I’m an indie maker. I also lead a remote team of a couple dozen as the Head of Publications at Toptal. On top of that, I’m a self-taught developer, a woman, and identify with many more things.
2. How To Stop Overthinking Your Writing
Experimenting in new genres and mediums is one of the best ways to flex your writing muscles in the same way that when you try a new piece of gym equipment, you exercise different parts of your body.
3. New AI Fake Text Generator May Be Too Dangerous to Release
The creators of a revolutionary AI system that can write news stories and works of fiction – dubbed “deepfakes for text” – have taken the unusual step of not releasing their research publicly, for fear of potential misuse.
4. Creative Blog Topics for Every Month of the Year
You might understand the importance of running a blog, but the reality of doing so can feel more like running a never-ending marathon. Coming up with fresh blog ideas is one of the most common roadblocks.
5. Why You Should Stop Fearing Failure
Almost as soon as a brilliant idea arises, that annoying voice in your head starts yapping about all the reasons you shouldn’t do it, what could go wrong, how you can fail, how arrogant you’ll seem for trying.
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!
