Recycle A Blog Post Day

I love a good Twitter trend, and #rabpday is no exception. Recycle A Blog Post Day is just that and as such I've spent the last few hours going through some of my older posts.

I'm surprised at how ignorant, arrogant and down right stupid I've been (although many would argue I still am) with some of my posts. But I'm also surprised at how insightful, humorous and engaging I was with others. I'm not actually going to recycle a post or pointpoint out anything in particular, but you can find them all on the right hand side of this page. It's certainly interesting to see how much things have changed over the years I've been blogging, gotta love a good session of reflection.

Also, I've finally come to my senses and will no longer be posting pointlessly linking to articles hosted externally. Or at least the regularly appearing ones anyway, especially if I'm not adding value here. ;]

  1. I found it hard to find a post i would be happy to post again for this exact reason. It was all "Oh wow this" and "Ooh that" nothing meaningfull.

  2. Doesn't that come down to the style of blogging.
    It's strength in being so current and quick on an issue, providing a perspective that hasn't yet been heard or read yet.
    But with time, hindsight and the benefit of several viewpoints, you see that really, a lot of the content is quite disposable?

    Some blogs/posts are exceptions and thus exceptional.

    It's kind of like "old news is old news" or "instant gratification" - buying that chocolate bar at the register and then 10 mins later feeling hungry and having forgotten about that sugar fix.
    And then we become junkies searching for more fixes forgetting about the last one. The last never being as good as the previous.
