Happy Friday (And National Hot Chocolate 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 digital gold goes to Aytekin Tank, founder of Jotform, who shares his views of the fear of criticism, explains how it’s ultimately unavoidable, and points out five tips on how to effectively avoid being hindered by it in your own journey or venture.
Up next, Nicole Bianchi explains why great headlines are über important in today’s noise, and lays out her five step process on how to write them to be the most effective at capturing interest in the article itself — the ultimate goal.
Rounding off the podium is Tom Kuegler, prolific Medium writer, who shares with us the psychology into how and why he routinely (and like clock-work) manages to pump out written content more than almost any writer out there.
Monique Danao provides some tried, tested, and true methods of building backlinks to your blog and/or website, so that your efforts can become more discoverable on Google and other search engines, and finds herself in the fourth spot.
And finally, closing out this week’s list is Sola Kehinde, who details out how to get better at writing by utilizing various forms of feedback, and using it to identify and highlight the problem areas that may stand out. After all, we learn best from our mistakes.
