Old Blog Posts On Active Rain. Reaching For The Utility Belt Tool.

The old blog posts when you have been steadily adding to the daily count on Active Rain.

You run into old blog posts you created, that need tinkering. Like sending up a group of astronauts in the burn proof tin can to space walk. Get out and add devices, fix old parts not working so hot. Or at all.

Blogging is not once and done.maine ice rink zamboni photo

You make it a daily habit to add to the library of local information.

To peddle the property listings you need to get to a real estate closing on time.

Lots of them to polish up, present.

So doubling back, to put the wrench on old blog real estate and local information  blog posts.

To add new links, tidy up the formatting, insert a new image or two. Because the way you blog now, has more expertise than it did when the original flow of recycled electrons were assembled for all the to see. Before the launch out into the wild blue yonder.maine jeep fun photo

Do you like a garden weed and feed, water your current blog posts?

Not neglect old ones already circling the blue and green marble?

Those literary, photo, video link creations hammered out, fashioned on Active Rain.

Your website blogs other stand along alone Wordpress posts or whatever real estate or social media format platforms?

Andrew I find my self looking at past blogs. New ideas, time changes or viewing thing differently. Not a bad idea rethin an old thought. 

Posted by Frank Rubi, FrankRubiRealEstate.com (Frank Rubi Real Estate, LLC) over 6 years ago

Good morning, Andy.... I often go to the archives of blog posts and redo the content....liven the post....and post it again....

I need to make this part of my routine. Mary blogged long ago that re-blogging the old post after corrections is a good thing.

Frank ... Sometimes in a search, you see the snippet and think this will be good, helpful and whoa. You wrote it back in 2008 or earlier.

Barbara ... Even formatting, more spacing, things you learned along the way. Before removing blogging post training wheels. Got to leave the yard.

TVBC ... You don't always plan to but run into earlier work. With 4000 blog posts it happens when you hunt and peck on multiple platforms. They show up. Keep doing so long after we leave the Earth. That is the eerie part. Former colleagues who die but their work, facebook page, all live on. Like ghost writers. Literally.

Rob ... Returning to a blog post from six months, year ago follow ups are a good idea to build on the theme. Reinforce and add to the SEO nitrous oxide horsepower Vroom.

Such a great idea and reminder Andy. I need to go breath new life into the bones of my old posts. Thanks for always inspiring us with your good habits, and success.

Debb ... You find old ones that rock in the search index when you do a search. But you can not just let them look ragged or miss adding something to improve them. Maybe a link to expound. But definitely better format, spacing out the paragraphs. Only takes a NASCAR quick pit stop to make them shine, more polished. Zamboni them! They all work hard, reflect on your brand, image, knowledge.

Andrew, Some good suggestions. I am new here, my second go around on Active Rain. I have a good library of blog posts and I ues  them sometimes for a point of reference. 

Its hard to figure out why the same post, a year latter, will draw so much better,, or draw so poorly. I think sometimes its the luck of the draw. 

I try to add value and then see what happens from there.

Andy, I do like to go back and refresh some of my old posts, especially those local events that happen every year. There is always need for updating, and sharing something new.

Posted by Jerry Newman, Texas REALTOR, San Antonio Military Relocation (Brown Realty, 210-789-4216,www.JeremiahNewman.com) over 6 years ago

Bryan ... Blog posts are the quickest way to salt and pepper emails with a sentence or two answer to the FAQ and then this link expands on that... makes the email shorter but actually with volumes on the subject so they get all they need. Links to them in website narrative and your blog posts there. All help save time and convey information. Write on a rotation of topics and keep adding more, linking back to reference. You are right about the ones that soar even though all wired SEO balanced make it timing, the headline, the audience and lots of little things. Some luck.

Jerry ... Good thinking! Thanks for stopping, popping in.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) over 6 years ago

Andrew- i've returned to my older posts to get fresh ideasbut I need to do as you said, and refresh the older posts as well. Thank you.

Sometime a recycled blog from the past could be just the thing.

Good luck and success.

Hi Andrew.  Great idea.  I am going to do that.  Thanks.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) over 6 years ago

Good ideas in here, thank you Andrew!

Posted by Shaffer Realty, Professional. Ethical. Caring. over 6 years ago

Kathy ... It was not so much a reminder to chide, to go back and re-wretch on the earlier posts. But when you have thousands out there working online, you bump into your own work. Can think this sounds good and find out whoa. It's your own stuff. But not formatted quite right or needs something added. A new link, tweaking. Fix them with a minute here and there when you see them.

LL ... Deja vu blog posts. Been there before.

CA ... Can't be the only one who bangs into their own earlier work. Your blogging expertise to write, wire them for SEO grows with experience.

SR ... Thanks for popping, stopping in!

Andrew: My brain has rusticated these days but yours never seem to be. I will recycle and revamp a bit...twist and twirl... older blogs. Polish it to make it look brand new and sparkling.

Maria ... Lots of reasons why you put the wrench to the old posts. One is links to new posts that expand on the topic. Just like we jettison new posts with updates on an older background news story. They build the exposure, expand on a topic.

Or you see a perfectly formatted, illustration post but look mom, no links. Like an airplane taking off with empty seats... tsk tsk tsk. Wiring it for SEO to help in the cross pollination of your media streams. Lots of reasons to apply what you know now but did not when bravely posting back in 2007, in history. Your brain is just fine. Woof.

Kathy ... (looking down at ground, one foot's toe back and forth slowly drawing line in the furrow, turning ten shades of red) Aw gee. Thank you! Funny how the best posts the author labored over are not the ones often that attract the audience. The ones already written inside that just gush out the ends of the fingers, that have to be out in the daylight and air and so easy work best. If timely presented. Keep blogging.

The real estate video posts should be the ones featured because that is one of the weakest areas in any agents, brokers marketing that is one big missed opportunity to spend a little time on the learning curve to save beaucoup time and expand your reach, have lots more sales, gain plenty more listings at the same time.

Video is the most misunderstood marketing child bar none. I wrote AR asking why the youtube channel does not have video play list for members to stock. To help that marketing arm along, or comment option on their own... nothing but dead air, static. No response. Everyone on the road and no one behind the green shimmering sequin curtain in the meet ups, blog camps?

Hi Andy,

I have found that when I go back to my old blog posts, there is so much to change and fix! I can take what was orginally a 100 word post and turn it into 200+ easily.  I guess it's all part of growth and knowledge.

Posted by Cindy Edwards, CRS, GRI, PMN - Northeast Tennessee - 423-677-6677 (RE/MAX Checkmate) over 6 years ago

Excellent advice. Thanks. I am going to put this on my to do list.

Posted by Gary L. Waters Broker Associate, Bucci Realty, Fifteen Years Experience in Brevard County (Bucci Realty, Inc.) over 6 years ago

Hi Andy, it's definitely worth taking a second look at old blog posts.  Some of them could use so much work, they warrant a total rewrite.

Posted by Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES, Florida Waterfront and Country Club Living (Tropic Shores Realty - Ich spreche Deutsch!) over 6 years ago

Cindy ... Making them tweaked, sharpened to shine brighter, pick up a few extra horsepower. Blogging like real estate, life is lots of little things. Passion helps too. That red jeep photo, could be you in the mirror with the shades. Looks like you.

Gary ... The minor league posts can become major league. Have you ever stumbled on to an old blog post on line and thought, that sounds interesting, right up my alley. And hey, the guy is me that wrote it. With over 3000 blog posts here, and other real estate blog post venues... it happens. Bound to. Unless all you post is reblogs, hit and run copy and paste market reports. Don't do those. All hand made hunt and pecks ... not for AR quick points.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) over 6 years ago

Silvia's Mother... that song sound always starts playing when I see your name... ha. And I think of not having enough change to keep the operator online trying to find your daughter. It is like they are stock blog post, but now like a muscian, artist. You know more than you did when crafted and give them a twist here, twirl there. To tighten them up or after market bolt on the SEO nitrous oxide bottle to boost the power from four cylinder to V-8. That's what marketing, the hokey pokey is all about. Hey.

Sometimes we are soooo sure you did it so well....,no need for "updates"....we all need updating with age..thank you Andy...have a great Sunday !

Posted by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, WI Real Estate Agents - Luxury - Divorce (EXP Realty 414-525-0563) over 6 years ago

S and D... Keeping it digital not analog and not like back in Cave Man Realty days. Always reinventing the list, market, sell. Makes it a sport, passion, some say addiction.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) over 6 years ago

Great tips Andrew and thanks to Kathy I didn't miss your post.

It's not always easy even to find time for new posts. But you're right - the old ones do need tweaking now and then.

Posted by Marte Cliff, Your real estate writer (Marte Cliff Copywriting) over 6 years ago

Marte ... When you study the logs you see the ones that are working hard, have traction. Those are the ones to tighten up. It is neat to see a blog post from 2008 that is still the authority on a topic. Well written and timely, helpful are the ones folks want, need, seek out.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) over 6 years ago

Andrew, thanks for sharing a great tip on going back into your archives to find blogging material.
