This Week in Blogging, Writing, and Content Creation: Jan 18 – Jan 24, 2020

Happy Friday (And National Compliment 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, our top spot features an insightful piece by Tony Fahkry on on how to step out of our comfort zones (admit it, we all have one!), and face our fears, obstacles, challenges, and potential inevitable failures, making it a rare occasion to justify the use of “YOLO!” (Sorry! ?)

Just below in second place, we’re given a fresh look into recent new findings about the psychology of procrastination, as reported by Christian Jarrett over at the BBC. He recaps that experts in the UK and Canada have suggested (with viable proof) that procrastination may be more of an issue with managing our emotions, not managing our time. Worth a read if procrastination is an on-going issue for you personally.

Next, we get to Tim Denning, a familiar name here lately, who shares the writing schedule he swears by, and that’s worked for him over the years to build his name, portfolio, and most importantly, actual readers — millions of them.

Christian Mihai reminds us about reciprocity in his short and sweet piece on his The Art of Blogging blog, landing in fourth place this week. He makes an excellent point that mutual co-operation with other bloggers, writers, and creatives is a huge networking factor that many don’t put much thought and/or action into.

Finally, Ali Mese provides us with thirty awesome bite-size tips on how to write better with the use of superior grammar. Little things like this add up, and these useful tips can help you drastically elevate your writing to reach another level.
