If you are like me than your first blog posts probably ramble a bit. They may not have been formatted well. You probably have a typo or two in there. I know I do!
When I read my first blog posts I always get the urge to re-do them. I’d write a proper introduction, cut up long paragraphs, use bullet points for emphasis, no more links in a different colour, etc.
So, what to do?
Rewriting an old text can enhance its readability. If the post was too long or too short you can add, expand your thoughts or, drop the redundant parts. You may have a picture now that fits perfectly. After that, you share the posts again on your social media platforms and explain that you revamped that post. That might even get you some comments from readers who like your idea.
If you wish to re-do an old post, consider adding an afterword below the original post. Just go to the end of the original post, type Afterword ,and blog about your reflections on your first or old post. Add the present date in your afterword so readers can see how much time passed between the original post and the added afterword.
Have you ever done this with some old posts? Do you recommend it?
Tip: If you change the title on your old posts, do not change the permalink so you do not mess up the post’s search engine results!
