Happy Friday (and National Peanut 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!
Drew Duboff leads us off this week with his insightful look into how to start an interview series, and provides us with the (many) benefits that come with it. As a host of his own interview series, he speaks from experience and genuinely knows what he’s talking about.
Back in April, in an attempt to combat the growing propaganda and “fake news” epidemic, Facebook first announced that it may be launching a revamped “News Tab” section, but didn’t really provide any further details. This week, in 2nd place, Laura Hazard Owen shares some more details that have been trickling out about how exactly it will benefit readers, along with writers and publishers.
Next up is Franziska Eichler, a self-proclaimed wellbeing coach who’s had the chance to work with world-class musicians such as Skrillex, treats us with some some personal “tips to nourish your physical and mental wellbeing while you try to do it all” in her post for The Creative Independent.
Just off the podium in 4th is Rachel Thompson with some self-branding advice for authors, insisting that blogging is a must in today’s extremely noisy landscape and simply cannot be ignored if you ever want to be found organically by potential readers.
Finally, we conclude our list with Pamela Wilson’s post on CopyBlogger, who takes the entire process of creating a blog post (or anything else creative really) and divides it into a completely do-able 4-day process that stretches out and simplifies all the must-do tasks that come with it.
