Looking Back To See How Far You Have Come

Last Update: December 02, 2019

Hi there,

due to a new strategy that I am implementing on my blog, I have decided to look through all of my old posts here on Wealthy Affiliate. While I have to admit, that some of them make me cringe, and a big part of me, wanted to delete some of them, I instead decided to focus upon how far I have come over the years.

I am a lot less naive when it comes to online business, I have come to understand my strengths - and my many weaknesses -, and I learned that it is okay to make mistakes, because you can learn from them. And that is okay, even if sometimes a little (or very) painful for a short while.

So I am thankful for having learned these lessons, having learned what I should not ever do again, and I have learned that I will make more mistakes in the future, just as long as they are not the same mistakes I made before.

Question:

Does looking back over your older content make you cringe sometimes? Do you allow that to discourage or encourage you?

Blessings!

Yes I have gone back and read some of my earliest posts and they were embarrassing and cringe-worthy! It's a humbling but worthwhile to try and salvage some of them.

I think updated, editing, re-writing and such is just part of the game. I will never know all there is about this MMO niche and have learned to live with such a dynamic platform.
Hang in there, stick to the training and you will be fine.

I have done this for my websites a few times over, but never for the posts here on Wealthy Affiliate, like I did today. Yikes, it sure was time, blessings!

I was wondering the same thing - I read some posts, and I said to myself "Have you ever heard of spell check my dear?", lol, all I had to do is push that darn button on the top - oh and I have Grammarly installed in my computer as well, so there is that.
I was asleep on the job, lol

Blessings!

Some of my old blogs are worth deleting others just editing.

RewRiting a lot, editing a lot, adding a lot... and updating my dates when done
