Publishing several blogs is time-consuming, but rewarding. In addition to this blog, My BlogStop!, my other blog, My Pain, Your Gain on BlogJob.com (formerly Cmoneyspinner Keeps on Blogging), is starting to shape up quite nicely.
Curious about the blog's title? The story is:
This blog here at Blogspot was supposed to be my last blogging initiative. However, someone brought this blogging community to my attention. The sign up was free. They have points rewards system. The members are nice and the site owners are very responsive. The opportunity was irresistible! Why stop? Hence, the blog title "Cmoneyspinner Keeps on Blogging". Decided to keep on blogging. Then changed the blog name to "My Pain, Your Gain".
Just updated one of my posts published it during my first month at BlogJob. Found an irresistible picture and I just had to use it somewhere! It was perfect for the post.
Which brings me to my question for this post.
- How often do you update your blog content?

Once read the advice of Mike Allton, a social mediaexpert who is active on Google Plus and he says bloggers should update and/or recycle or "revive" their content regularly. He recommends: "... invest your time in past posts that you have actual reason and evidence to support the renewed interest."
Besides that, links get outdated and it affects your rankings in the search engine. Bad links = Poor quality content. That makes sense!
It's good advice to heed but to be honest ... my blog posts are reviewed and updated mainly because … eh! … you get a little older, you get a little wiser.
Gaining experience with dogged persistence and consistent publishing should … I said “should” … should make one a bit more savvy about better ways to blog. When I revisit my own content (anywhere from 3 to 6 months after the initial publication), more often than not my own impression of my own material is:
“Hmmm ... This material could definitely be presented better.”
Isn't it this way for every blogger?? :)
If not, it should be.
