Happy Friday everyone!
Welcome to another weekly round-up post from our growing community of bloggers, writers, vloggers, podcasters, and other fellow creatives. To be straight to the point, 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 re-posts, or older than 1 month (30 days), meaning that all of the following are fresh and recent!
Here are this week’s (Apr 6 – Apr 12, 2019) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. How to Turn Failure into Success
People often say that “failure is the mother of success.” This cliché might have some truth to it, but it does not tell us how to actually turn a loss into a win, says Emmanuel Manalo, a professor at Kyoto University.
2. Confidence: 2 Reasons Most People Don’t Have It
Unlike motivation and other emotional states which are more surface level, confidence is deeper and more subconscious. I’m going to breakdown what confidence is and why most people don’t have much of it.
3. On Writing Stories With Images
Writer and artist Leanne Shapton on developing her own style of storytelling, chasing down your most resonant ideas, and working however you can, wherever you can. By Julia Alexander and Alex Castro.
4. The Golden Age of YouTube is Over
As YouTube battles misinformation catastrophes and discovers new ways people are abusing its system, it’s shifting toward more commercial, advertiser-friendly content at a speed its community hasn’t seen before.
5. How Gary Lineker and Luciana Berger Helped Me Take the Fight to the Trolls
Any time someone has an opinion on Twitter, they are putting themselves in the firing line. The world’s No 1 Twitter troll is the president of the US. It’s not going to get better any time soon. By Tracy Ann Oberman.
