Happy Friday (and National Simplicity Day) everyone!
Preface: 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 (31 days), meaning that all of the following are fresh and recent! Tune in every week and you will gradually become a better and more insightful creative over time!
This week’s top spot is claimed by Tim Herrera, founding editor of Smarter Living, who writes a piece for the New York Times about the psychological complexities of dealing with perfectionism in our creative works, and looks into ways of snapping out of that nasty fallacy.
Following at 2nd place is Lucy Davies who provides 5 excellent and helpful tips on how to speed up your writing to get more pumped out in a shorter amount of time. It ends up being a lot of extra content over a long period of time.
Rounding off our podium spots is Adam Connell from Blogging Wizard who takes an insightful look into the art of leveraging social proof to make your profile(s) and website(s) look as authoritative and trustworthy as possible.
In fourth is marketing veteran Lorie Loe with her seven step outline of how to streamline and scale the process you use to create your content. Setting up a system will make it easier to be consistent, which is an absolute must in all of today’s noise.
Finally, wrapping up the list is a piece by chiropractor Dr. Brent Wells, that focuses primarily on the well-being of writers (and other professions that require lots of sitting), and provides tips on how to stay as healthy as possible to get the job done.
