Happy Friday (And National Caregivers 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!
We begin our list with Rosie Sherry, community manager at Indiehackers, who shares her secrets of how (and why) she curates all sorts of news, resources, and other interesting articles from outside sources to maintain a healthy stream of knowledge (and entertainment) to her communities on and off Indiehackers, along with her social media channels, and other online presences. A very useful and informative post that earns our top spot this week!
Next up, Divad Sanders provides his 5-part blueprint on how to structure and mass produce article after article using a systematic approach, ensuring digestible, linear, and easy-to-follow articles, earning him second place.
Rounding off the podium is Cristian Mihai, who reminds us that to blast through perfectionism, and to avoid or minimize the righteous fear that comes with the territory, we need to write fast, and edit even faster when producing content for your readers.
Just below, we find Kevin J. Duncan, Editor-in-Chief for Smart Blogger, who shares his massive guide on “How to Find (& Land) Freelance Writing Jobs” as the title suggests. It’s especially worth the (loooong) read for new-comers that can quickly catch up on the most recent information, strategies, and much more from the vast world of freelancing.
Finally, we get to Laura Wagner, who reports on Vice Motherboard the news of how an amateur sports blogger/reporter got his Twitter account “highjacked” by Vox Media, the company that employed him, even though it was purely his own idea and effort to do so on the side. As of today, the ball is in Twitter’s court to resolve this fairly.
