Go back to a blog post you always thought could be better, or were unsatisfied with — now, fix it.
I would love to participate in this daily prompt however I just joined in yesterday! Yes, a newbie to blogging! I am having problems I can post a comment but for some reason I try to submit my writings to my blog and it won’t let me click submit post! What am I doing wrong? I only have a iPad to work on and it’s an older one my son bought me. I don’t have a home PC nor do I have a laptop to work on. Could this be my problem? Do I need a PC or laptop to fully enjoy blogging with world press? Any suggestions?
Maybe you could try and download the WordPress App rather than go on it from the internet? I’m not sure if this would make a difference, but it is worth a try! Otherwise maybe the settings are set to private? I’m a bit of a novice too, but I wish you good luck!!
Yes, I use the app and can post blog entries just fine. Well, it’s MUCH easier with a computer, but it can be done through the app. And I have the oldest model iPad, so it’s not that.
Hmmm, I’m stumped. Sorry! Best of luck
Thanks to all! I did try and download the app and the warning I get states it requires iOS 5? Lost, lost, totally lost! Well if worse comes to worse I will go to the public library to post on my blog. I can’t wait! Any other ideas I’m open to. Thanks again to all!
il tema è molto bello. chi non ha un post che rifarebbe? …
Io. Non ho sbagliato mai, tranne la volta che ho pensato che abbia sbagliato.
OK. I added a little more to this one: http://historyandwine.com/2012/12/04/kill-your-heroes/
I do this more often than I should. My posts could always be better and always improved. I require a large cauldron of will power not too.
All of them!
I tried but couldn’t. My reasons are here – The Moving Finger.
Highschool. I would have focus more on my studies, less on other trivial pursuits. I would have been more of a overachiever than a underachiever. Oh well…

I’ve reedited posts in the past when I thought of something new or a better phrasing.
I feel a bit like a naughty girl who had to go to detention – but I tried a little harder this time and got it done http://promptqueen.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/re-writing-my-alma-mater-speech/
Thanks for the suggestion but I see a bugger here. If I fix something you can’t compare it to the original slug, right? So maybe doing a version II of the same title with a link to the original may add spice to this challenge – that way we can compare the before and after. What do you think?
As a new comer to the blogosphere I’m cautious as to what I post and try to keep the mishaps and blunders on a low risk side – not that I haven’t corrected some of the posts after they are out! Mostly titles :). Will skip this challenge, thx.
Most any post or bit of writing can be fixed, so to speak. Generally, omitting the bits that folks are skipping over when they read, helps polish the writing.
This is, as many of my pieces are, a do-over. I think I got it right this time!
This is probably the third do-over on this, but I believe I got it right this time!

I post from a blog I have Onsugar was on WordPress. I wish I could fix it. It said title: Fun & Relation which should have been Fun and Relaxation. I was horrified.
i feel like i do this all the time… i have like 100 revisions on my posts at the end of the day. i’m never really satisfied with my entries, but eventually i just suck it up and leave it be.
I have just visited your Blog Annette, but the Page was virtually blank?.:(
Oh, my … I hope I’ve done this correctly. As a first time paticipant, I want to get it right.
If not, give me a shout out. Thanks,
Oh no couldn’t possibly do that! Did you not know I’m Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way! X
Sometimes I view major changes like jury nullification; something must really be wrong.
Please take me off your email, I am getting 100 an hour.
ok, i thought this old post about men vs. women deserve a make-over. got the facts straightened out and updated it. would appreciate to know what you think.
“and, to prove that he was smarter, finished it off to hide the evidence.”
thank you. glad you liked it.
Reblogged this on The Roads Taken and commented:
this one too.
How great to be able to have a Do-over on a previous post! I’m sure that many people who use social media or the internet wish that they could have a “re-do” and erase something unwise or unkind that they may have written. What were they thinking?http://lesliegumbert.com/2013/01/28/primarysourcedocuments/
I couldn’t get your link to work. Maybe you need to re-check it?
all best, Christine
Hi, Christine…difficulties of being a new blogger, so thank you for the head’s up. I’ve included the shortlink, hope that is the correct link.
Reblogged this on BLDs "B"log and commented:
Why are we as a society not using manners? I get so tired of using my manners just to have others not use theirs. Just simple courteousness like, Please Thank you, and Excuse me are the simplest use of common courtesy that is required when you are in public places interacting with other people. I know it would make a negative interaction with a stranger a positive.
I had actually scrapped a version of this, but kept thinking about it here and there and the DPChallenge was the last straw, so I dug it out and I think it might be the best thing I had written so far:
Thanks again, DPchallenge!
I really like this prompt. And: I do go back into my posts and improve them, often I add photos later, because it takes more time to work on them – i.e. I added a photo gallery to this post later
But my followers will have seen the first version only – how will they know I did a do-over? If I’m not fast enough they will probably never see the photos.
I just added some information and corrected typo errors. Here is my take to my former article: I wish I were in Nauru:
Daily Prompt: Going Back to Nauru

Weekly Writing Challenge: I wish I were in Nauru
Quick edit on this one! http://wp.me/p2M8yi-3x
Here is mine. I was already working on it for this week’s Photo Challenge. I wrote the article awhile back and wasn’t crazy about it. It’s still not quite there but I thought it was an improvement. The original is titled Kaleidoscope Collide. I like this title much better. I’m passionate about this topic and I hope my article handled it well.
I posted above, but did not provide the appropriate link…I call “Do-over!”

What an excellent idea…am joining this blog, glad to have found this!!
LUV BLOGGING…Always looking for ideas…… : )
I wrote this post about a year ago on another less adult-oriented blog. I like it much better in this spicier version. Check it out and see what I mean: http://offgothepanties.com/2013/04/10/baby-got-backpage/
Is it my computer, or is there no daily prompt today?
I’ve yet to ‘feel the need’ to make amendments to Blog Posts.
I daresay that that time WILL come though.
I don’t think I will do that. I want my posts to be the same as they were. I don’t know, some kinda nostalgia or something.
