Some Bloggers Use This Trick

Sometimes the hardest part of blogging is finding time to write. When I get jammed up and grow concerned I won’t be able to produce new content I pull out old content and share it again.

Sometimes I rerun an entire post and sometimes I provide links to old posts like I did below:

It is a cross section of some recent and older posts that I can guarantee not everyone has read. Often when I do this I’ll also encourage people to take a look at the About Jack page.

Why?

Because it provides more links and information about who I am and what this blog is about my stats show it is a popular page for new readers.

It also serves as a reminder to me to check out the page and make sure it is up to date.

And with that I have to run, but I intend to come back later tonight to provide fresh content. See you in 12 hours.

    I add internal links all the time to my posts, but I’ve never thought about re-running an old post that I know no one is going to go back to check. I’m going to have to think about that one, and maybe think about slightly re-writing them so they don’t look like exact copies. After all, I’m supposed to be known for my creativity… right? lol

      I have had success running old posts and links like I did here. New readers show up on a regular basis and not all of them dig through the archives.

      I try to change the headlines a bit and make a few tweaks here and there. I also try to make a point to mention that it ran before and provide a link to the initial post.
