A reminder, that if you would like to be involved, just answer the very simple survey here and I’ll consider your question for inclusion in this series of posts. You don’t have to answer the second question but if you leave your name and link I will link to your blog when I respond.
Question: Which is your favourite post to re-read? From anon.
This one is going to be short because the simple answer is I probably don’t re-read posts after they’ve gone out. Or if we’re talking about other blogs, I tend to read through something once and then I’ll move on. Which is odd when I think about it given how much I love re-watching and re-reading stories. I wonder why it is that I don’t feel any compulsion to re-read a blog post other than the transient nature of blogs and the fact that there is always something new to think about and discuss.
In regards to my own posts they tend to get drafted, reviewed and edited, a re-read before posting if time allows, and then after they go out I do another read on the site just to check formatting and catch those typos that have annoyingly been missed in all the prior checks. Depending on how much damage there is I may then do another edit. Occasionally I have to re-read a post to respond to a comment because I sometimes don’t get what they are responding to until I’ve read the post through again and then it makes sense. Other times I have to re-read a post because I know I’ve previously discussed an idea that I want to link to and I have to check what has been said or which post that comment was in.
Sorry it isn’t really an answer but it was an interesting question.
Now I’m kind of curious about whether people re-read posts or not. Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading.
