Sadje’s Sunday Poser — Funny You Should Ask

Today’s Sunday Poser from Sadje asks…

Do you re-share your older posts regularly?

Sadje then pointed out that “Fandango [that’s me] has a Friday Flashback prompt where he asks us to share a post written on the same date in the past.” Thanks for the shout-out, Sadje.

Back in 2019, on a whim, I looked through some of my old blog posts on this blog and on a few older blogs that are no longer online. I was struck by how I didn’t remember writing many of them. Even some of the more recent ones. And some of them, I thought, were quite good.

That’s how the idea hatched in my head to re-share these older posts. And so, I published my first Fandango’s Friday Flashback post with this opening line, “Time for something new…for me, anyway. Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.”

If you want to read that inaugural, May 31, 2019 Friday Flashback post, click here.

So, to answer Sadje’s question, yes, I regularly — every Friday — re-share an older post of mine and have been doing so for three years and five months. Please feel free to join in. It’s fun.

    It’s interesting when you look over an old forgotten post. You think gosh, this is good. Did I REALLY write this…….

    I used to do the reshare on Fridays but then I found out that I do tend to write on similar topics so when something strikes a familiar cord, I look it up and if I find a post written on the same topic, I share that instead of writing a new one. And like you I find that my older posts are sometimes quite good. 😂

    It is fun. I don’t do it as regularly as you. I don’t write everyday so I can’t always find a post from the exact same day, even after nine and a half years but you have inspired me to reuse and recycle old posts.

      Excellent. Your old posts are probably new to many of your readers.

        They would be as I had very few readers for the first two or three years.
