Going Green - Recycle Your Old Blog Posts

It is never too late to go back and optimize your old blog posts - for SEO, for Pinterest, for better readability. After you put new work into those old posts, you want people to read them.

Adrienne and I are here to help you.

Or maybe you have an old post that is already perfect, but it didn't get the attention you hoped when it was first published.

We will help you with that, too.

Going Green - Recycle Your Best (Missed) Blog Posts

What goodies do you have hiding in your archives?
  • What were you doing one year ago this week?
    Two years ago? Three years ago?
  • How has your writing changed?
  • What experiences have you shared in the past that could spark a wonderful update?

Go through your archives and find an old post that you want to reintroduce to the world. Spruce it up if you want. Add our button. Link up your post. Visit at least two other links, and leave a comment.

We can't wait to read what the blog world missed.

You can also find us on Twitter at @themommymess and @fromtracie, and follow the hashtag #GoingGreen.

    1. Yay!! :)

      Thanks for letting me co-host with you again this month.

      So much fun.

  2. Can't wait to read these posts! :)

    1. Me, neither. We already have some great ones.

      .....I LOVED your daughter's reaction in the one you linked up. Good stuff.

  3. Sounds like fun! I'm on it...right after my run! These dogs are going crazy while they wait for me!

    1. Awesome!!

      Hope you (and the dogs) enjoyed your run.

  4. It's a great idea because I constantly want to look back at posts and see how I've changed. Time to find a good one!

  5. Love the idea of dusting off the archives. They get lonely. :)

  6. I've been doing that like crazy lately. I've been blogging for 7 years, so they didn't even have Pinterest and all this newfangled stuff when I started. Plus I have a whole new crop of readers now who aren't going to take the time to dig through my archives, so I've been going through month by month and dusting off my old posts, adding pictures, and new content to them and reposting them like crazy. It's really helped me keep my blog fresh and it's been kind of interesting to revisit my past.

  7. Thanks for hosting/posting this.

  8. I have linked up and posted something from my first year blogging on blogspot, hope others like reading it old post

  9. Thanks Tracie! I finally got it done and I updated two posts! Thanks for the inspiration!
