2009 Revisited

One of the benefits of anniversary-ing yourself over the course of authoring a blog, is you can read back over time to assess if your writing has improved. I’ve been doing that periodically, which helps this week because a goal lurks in front of me and I need to focus on it rather than Middle Passage today. Therefore please understand as I link to a post from a year ago, which happens to be one I enjoyed writing then, and like reading now. Since it was written back in the days when I wrote to myself, oops, um, I mean in my days of limited readership, I’m hoping to you all, this will read like new.

With no further ado, please enjoy: Eat These Words.

If you find things you’d change in this old post, I’d love to hear your suggestions. How about you? Do you re-read your blog posts?

I really loved the old post. It was wonderful.

And yes, I read my old posts all the time. I amuse myself. :)

Loved that post. Sounds like a wonderful book, too!
I admit I haven't looked back on my posts. Maybe I should.

Sometimes I go back and read. Not often, though. If your early days are like mine, you can use those posts again. No one read my original posts.

It's an amazing post. 0 comments. No one read it. You can recycle those, Liza, on days when you have nothing. Go back to those early posts and recycle. You were an excellent writer then and now. If you want to edit a little, well okay. It's a shame for those to sit there unread.

I've not felt brave enough to read my first posts. I've not dug deep into my past in writing either. Then again, my past is rather calm, stable, and dull!

I write to myself all the time and that's ok because I'm really new at blogging and know that I have much to learn. Limited readership means limited scrutiny while I get my bearings.

I'm glad I found your blog today, and I'm glad you linked to your older post. I liked it very much, and I think I had my own ah-ha moment while reading it.

I loved the old post :)

I actually haven't gone back and read any of my old stuff, but now that you've brought it up, I shall do just that--I know they were quite different though.

I do not reread old posts...unless I can't come up with anything and then I just completely repost!
