Are you up for the challenge today? Today it is 7 posts to edit on our monthly Random Editing Day.
As explained in previous month during the series of Blog Exercises, this month you will need to edit seven random posts, one for every month of this series so far.
This monthly blog exercise can be done on any 7 posts on your site, chosen randomly or specifically.
If you are looking for ideas, look for posts with a July Theme. For some July represents summer cold or heat depending upon your location on the planet. For others, the theme of July is holidays and festivals, parties, vacation, and more time spent outdoors than in. Choose one or more themes and go for it.
If you really wish to get creative, play with the number 7. Have you used it in any of your posts? Why not choose 7 posts published in the past on the 7th month, July, or in 2007. Were you blogging then? If so, I’m sure your 2007 posts need some attention.
As described in the original exercise, your task today is to find seven random previously published posts and edit them.
In the post announcing these random edit blog exercises I offered an extensive list of things to look for when editing articles.
If you have been following along with these Blog Exercises from the beginning, your writing style has definitely improved, stretching all the ways you can explore a topic. Really push yourself to edit deeper and harder, finding the true intention of the article, its heart and soul. Let the world read that and be better for it.
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. 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!
