Happy Monday everyone, hope you all had a restful weekend or got yourselves a little caught up… I know we’re learning a ton. Within every challenge/task there seems to be more than one lesson learned. There’s so much amazing info packed into this little ebook, that I’m sure we’re all going to have to read it again to really absorb it all, anyway. After today’s challenge I don’t think I will ever look at a post the same way.
When updating an old post, if it’s a significant change, write a new post. Be sure to link back to the old post so readers know it’s been updated.
7 ways to update a post
1. Crafting your post title – Shouldn’t stink
2. Opening lines – Must be enticing
3. Call to Action – Get readers to do something
4. Add Depth – Illustrations, examples, etc
5. Quality control – Proofread, old links, inaccurate?
6. Polishing Posts – Great looking posts do better
7. Conversation – Readers continue to interact with old posts
1. By reviewing my old posts, this exercise helped me figure out where I need to improve as a blogger. When reviewing your old posts, did a majority of the posts fall into any of the 7 categories above?
2. Which post did you choose to rewrite and why?
Update: *I’d like to thank the lovely ladies of SITS whose site hosted our Problogger Winter 31 Day Challenge.
