This Week in Blogging, Writing, and Content Creation: June 29 – July 5, 2019

Happy Friday 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!

You have set out on your looooooong creative journey! ? Yay!

Now imagine that at certain milestones, for every set amount of distance you travel, awaits better and faster hypothetical vehicle that you can hop onto — or into.

You, along with everyone else, start off in the very beginning on foot. At first, as you start strolling along, short distances seem to take forever to get through.

But after a few wins and met goals, you’re greeted by a tricycle. Then a few more and you get to a bicycle. Next up is an electric scooter, and so on.

As you keep moving forward and progressing in your journey, you keep upgrading via countless faster bikes, then cars, then planes, then jets until you finally–and I’m talking several years here–go far enough to reach a spaceship and can shoot for the stars.
