Linda's How-Do-I Series? Why Would I Want To Create Generic Posts?

If you've been blogging for awhile and created hundreds of posts you must be wondering about all the writing and whether or not you can reduce the amount of time required for all the writing that you are doing?

Well, you can. And, here's how:

Create what I'd like to call generic posts. In other words, posts that can be used over and over again. These could be posts on any subject that are not date defined. They could be posts for a particular holiday that you can re-post year after year. They could be research posts, historical subject posts, craft idea's and how-to's, etc. Anything that you could post at any time without it looking out of place.

The reason to do this is to save you time and help you with the search engines. They save you time because you don't have to write something new and they help with the search engines as you have current posts, which they love.

If you limit the time span for re-posting to no sooner than 6 months to one year you should be fine as far as your readers go.

Why re-invent the wheel over and over if you don't need to.
