I Revise My Blog Posts (sometimes).

Written By: Gary on October 1, 2007 4 Comments

So I’m always editing my posts. Generally, just in the first hour (or two) but occasionally (rarely) up to a day later. I’ll see little things I want to change/correct or I’ll notice typing errors. Sometimes I’ll remember something I left out and I’ll add it. I’m trying to make the blog post better, more readable and more complete.

I don’t change the slant or idea of something I had but I’ll firm up the idea sometimes. Sometimes I wonder how that info gets around the ‘net though. I know some people will read me via RSS or Atom or something, but once their software grabs my feed, if I change the article do they get the latest version if I don’t revise the date (and if I do revise the date do they have two copies?)?

I know sites start to index pages and RSS feeds and update Technorati and other sites like that and I’m not sure what version those end up with in the end, or how often it takes to re-index those files.I guess when people comment they see the full and latest post, but I’d have to assume they don’t really notice…

1 – minor correct.
2 – took out a short paragraph about my RSS feeds, I forgot they were dynamic now; that’s a bigger change than normal (see I was still thinking about it while cooking so I checked and corrected it).
3 – Minor structure and a spelling error.
(I think I’m done now)

    Hmmm… I wonder if the rss does update if you make it as “read.”

    I revise mine constantly in the first hour or so after I post. It kind of goes with what I do for a living.

    Ya, it beats me also. But i feel those that grab your feed will get only the earlier version of it because it is permamently posted on their blog.

    I try really hard not to revise entries… particularly for content. On rare occasions I will fix a typo or clarify a meaning when I’ve been foggy on something, but that doesn’t happen very often.
