The Art Of Self-Promotion: 6 Tips For Getting Your Work Discovered

The Art Of Self-Promotion: 6 Tips For Getting Your Work Discovered | Kids | Scoop.it
The subtitle of the writer and artist Austin Kleon’s new book, Show Your Work! is “10 Ways to Share Your Creativity and Get Discovered.” But that subtitle could just as easily be, “How to Self-Promote Without Being a Jerkface.” It’s an incredibly useful and compulsively readable short book about how to use social media and networking if you’re a creative person of any stripe.Kleon, who gave the Keynote speech at this year’s SXSW, isn’t giving the same tired advice. The key to his method is to continuously share your work, whether or not you think it’s absolutely perfect, or absolutely finished. In fact, he encourages writers, artists, and musicians to pull back the curtain on their work and show the process. “By letting go of our egos and sharing our process,” Kleon writes, “We allow for the possibility of people having an ongoing connection with us and our work, which helps us move even more of our product.”...

Why Children Need Ongoing Nurturing Relationships

Why Children Need Ongoing Nurturing Relationships | Kids | Scoop.it
Although consistent nurturing relationships with significant adults are taken for granted by most of us as a necessity for babies and young children, we often do not put this commonly held belief into practice.Pioneers, such as Erik Erikson, Anna Freud, and Dorothy Burlingham, revealed that to pass successfully through the stages of early childhood, children require sensitive, nurturing care to build capacities for trust, empathy, and compassion. Supportive, warm, nurturing emotional interactions with infants and young children help the central nervous system grow appropriately.======================We can feel empathy only if someone has been empathetic and caring with us. =========

Studies: Digital media thriving, but press releases still most trusted

Studies: Digital media thriving, but press releases still most trusted | Kids | Scoop.it
Pew’s State of the News Media report and an Inkhouse and GMI study each present a portrait of the media that’s increasingly becoming a digital world.That may be the overarching theme of Pew’s latest State of the News Media report. It also revealed that most Americans now get their news through a digital platform, with 82 percent using their desktop or laptop and 54 percent saying they get news from their mobile device. Daily newspapers shouldn’t be discounted quite yet. Subscriptions make up 70 percent of audience-driven revenue for media outlets, totaling $10.4 billion last year. Inkhouse and GMI conducted a similar study recently, and found that 73 percent of news consumers turn to TV for their news, followed by news websites (52 percent), print sources (36 percent) and radio (25 percent), which barely beat out social media (23 percent).
