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 16 – Feb 22, 2019) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. Endure Long Enough to Get Noticed
There is so much content being produced that we can’t possibly discover it all. If step one in building an audience is to create great content, step two is to endure long enough to get noticed.
2. 4 Ways to Create (And Maintain) a Writing Habit
When I wrote my first book in 2013, I was newly married and working a full-time job. While writing, that dream of every writer’s heart whispered to me every morning: What if this is what you could do to make a living?
3. The Science of Developing Mental Toughness
The research studies that I have found say that intelligence only accounts for 30% of your achievement — and that’s at the extreme upper end. What makes a bigger impact than talent or intelligence? Mental toughness.
4. Why I Deleted All of My Social Media and 60,000 Followers
Yesterday morning, I woke up and deleted all my social media. My Instagram, Twitter, and personal Facebook accounts (I deleted my Facebook business page a year earlier), all gone. I ghosted from the party.
5. How To Create Interesting Long Reads
A recent survey found that bloggers who invest more time in writing their blogs — and also write longer articles– generally have a higher number of readers and interactions. How do you keep a long read interesting?
That’s all folks! You can view all the rest of the community’s top submissions (12 more) here.
