Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: Do you ever go back to older posts and change things?
Basically, no. I only rarely look back at older posts, and when I do it’s to read, not revise. If I notice a clear typo, I might correct that (if it’s a moment when I have time and easy means to do so!) but that’s really just changing it to what my original intent was. I don’t change actual content.
I sometimes read a post and think I’d write it differently now…but while this is a chronicle of reading, within that category it is a bit journal-like, and I’m nearly compulsive about not changing journals at a later time (because then it’s not an accurate record of its original time!)
Once in a while I’ll do a Classic Post, putting an old review up again, but I don’t generally change things even then. I think I’ve occasionally taken something out, if a paragraph was really only relevant at the time (maybe it was more about blog business than the actual book, for example). I add things, but only as an introduction before the post proper. So what I have written, I have written!
Do you make revisions on old posts? Or are they a kind of historical record that you leave intact?
