Out with the Old, In with the New Contest

Here's a new one for you! You don't have to write a post every day for 30 days. Just revamp one you have already written! Check this out! You can do up to 6 remakes for credit in this new and exciting challenge! 

Out with the old, in with the newOut with the Old, In with the New Contest. As we come to the end of the year everyone is thinking about how to do things better in 2013 and how to make our businesses grow. We have learned so much through ActiveRain this year in the way of technology and how to improve our blogging.

There have been Rain Camps, SEO and Link Training, discussions about how to get noticed and how to get better position in the Google Rankings. We have learned how to write better posts, include graphics and photos, create links and provide pertinent information that will be picked up by Google and better than that the public.

Now it’s time to put what we have learned into action. One of the things we have also learned is that we need to be refreshing our old blogs and keep the information current and relevant. So now you have the opportunity to do just that with the Out with the Old, In with the New Contest.

Here’s how it works. Go back through your old Activerain posts and pick six that need updating. By updating I mean that when you originally wrote the posts, you may have not used good photos, added links, had an attractive layout or font and it generally lacked pizzazz and relevant information to get much attention.

Now using these six old posts as your basis this is what you need to do to write some brand new posts.

  1. Keep the basic same idea or theme of the original post but write an entirely new post for each one.
  2. As Bob says to get our point across and show our knowledge on a subject, the post needs to be at least 300 words so we are going to do what Bob says.
  3. Add at least one photo or graphic but no more than 3.
  4. You must have good relevant information that relates to your topic.
  5. Add a Link to your old post in the blog so the judges can see how you have made improvements.
  6. Plus have at least 2 other different links that take the reader to other supporting sites relative to your post or that give added value. Your general home page of your website cannot be one of them but it can be a specific page giving specific information to the reader.
  7. Make the post something people will want to read by choosing a good title and a good layout.
