Update The Content

Revive Old Blog Posts Report

We've done the planning and figured out what blog posts need updating. Now it's time to get to work. The first thing we'll focus on is the content. Start by reading through your blog post. Is the content still valid? Have some things changed?

 

Make note of any major changes you need to make to what you've written in the past. I find it helpful to grab a notebook and pen or open a word document and jot down what changes I need to make. 

 

Somteimes the content is pretty evergreen and not much needs to be fixed. Other times, there's a lot of rewriting to do. The key is to have a plan and then just sit down and rework the post. 

 

Something else worth thinking about is if you have learned something new to share since you first wrote the post. If so, you can either just rewrite the post, or write an update section to the post. Depending on what makes the most sense, you can add it to the top or the bottom of the post. 

 

Last but not least, take a look at the comments the post has gotten since you first published it. Are there any great tips or questions your readers have shared? If so, you may want to highlight them within the updated post. 

 

Make your changes, do your re-writing and save your work. Go get some coffee, go for a walk or work on something else for a little while. Then come back and read over your rewritten post. It's time to do a little editing to make sure no spelling errors snuck in and that everything makes sense and flows well. 

 

A Word About Saving Changes 

 

Before we move on, let's talk about saving the changes you are making. If you are working in WordPress or other blogging software, once you hit save, the changes will go live on your website. 

 

If you want a chance to go back and edit first, or finish making all the changes we will talk about in the next few steps, do your re-writing in a word document or a new WordPress draft and paste it in when you're ready to publish.  

 

However you choose to do this, be sure to save frequently so you don't lose any of your hard work. 

 

Are you ready to move on to the next step?
