Today it is 6 posts to edit on our monthly Random Editing Day.
It’s June. It’s summer in most of the world, some switching from winter to summer while others are switching from summer to winter. It’s a time of change.
This month’s random editing day let’s focus on the word “change.” Run a search on your site for the word “change” or synonyms for change such as shift, vary, convert, transform, mutate (you might use that word), switch, adjust, difference, modification, revision, revolution, evolution, variety, transition, innovate…whatever words represent “change” on your site.
If you don’t talk about change and things changing, how about improving? How about reviews of things that changed, improved, or went the other direction. Anything you’ve published that deals with the concept of change.
If you can’t find six posts dealing with change and improvements, randomly find six posts and edit them to bring them up to standards with your fresh and new site you’ve been working on so hard for many months in these Blog Exercises. If you are new to the blog exercises, don’t kill yourself with six. Set the number lower and work your way up.
As described in the original exercise, your task today is to find six random previously published posts and edit them. Use the list in the original exercise as a review on what to look for when editing the article.
Show us your best edits by adding a hat tip link to the edited post(s) to this post to generate a trackback, or post a link to the two posts in the comments. Include an explanation of why you are proud of your editing skills and how your blogging has improved through this process of editing. If WordPress moderates the comment because of the links, be patient as I’ll be here as soon as possible to approve the comment. Thanks!
Coming Soon! I’m working on bringing all of the past six months of blog exercises together to create a draft ebook for you. Stay tuned for more news soon.
