How often do you re-share your older posts?
I used to re-share my older posts often because of the reason Sadje mentioned in her post:
Unless you are a celebrity, it is very likely that when you started to blog, very few people read or saw your posts.
After blogging for almost a decade, you’d think it’s time to repost some of the older posts to let some fresh eyes read what was written years ago. Honestly, I can’t bring myself to do it because in my perfectionist mind, in order to repost something, it must be edited. I don’t know why I think that. Perhaps my writing wasn’t as good then or maybe I wasn’t as wise as now? Who knows what the reason was.
Nowadays, I still re-share my older posts from time-to-time by linking with a current post when it’s related to a topic I’m writing about. For example, I re-shared a 2014 post a few weeks ago on Sunday Poser #101 as the post was relevant to the topic. I feel links work best as I’m not subjecting anyone to read the post, it’s merely a suggestion, don’t you think so?
