    “Want to edit”? I take it you refrain? May I ask why?

      Oh no, I do edit older posts on occasion. More often than not, it is client posts, to improve their readability and SEO scores. The trick is to find the time, I’m afraid.

    I agree, there’s definitely something to be said for revisiting old posts, particularly to see if your views have changed. Writing is an ongoing process of learning and experimenting, and revisiting old posts can be a great primer for provoking a fresh conversation with yourself.

    I actually started blogging because I would often read or hear new ideas on a familiar topic, and remember that I had previously heard something related, but for the life of me I couldn’t remember what it was. So I began writing down my “understanding” of writing, revising it when I encounter new ideas, almost like an ongoing textbook for my study of writing and storytelling. I find it very helpful. The mind is a wonderful source of inspiration and new ideas, but that’s partly because the mind is always combining and changing the thoughts we “know”. Writing them down is a great way to ensure that some things remain consistent, until I’m ready to change them.

      Good point Adam. I like that I can see how far I’ve come with my writing over the years. Where some older pieces of writing seem fine on the surface, now I can’t help but critique and want to edit from where my writing skills are today.
