So how do you revamp an old post? Like everything, this will depend on your niche. But here are some ideas:

  • Update your ‘best of’ other bloggers post from the previous year
  • Revamp a post on technology with tips for the current version
  • Turn old tip posts into ¬†an infographic (bonus tip – these are very ‘pinnable’)
  • Collate your old posts into a “best of” series for each category that you blog about
  • Update the information in an old blog post and republish it using a different format, such as a vlog


You can even take your best posts, update them and turn them into an eBook!

  1. I really think bloggers underestimate the power of this one. It is such a handy thing to do, update old info or reformat it.
    A great thing to do is check out your most popular posts in the past and build on that topic in a new way for your readers – you know I love the vlog idea!

    1. Especially if you’re a blogger in a niche where the topics change often – something like technology blogging would be able to update posts frequently.
