Re-Publish Old Posts?

birdmandesk

I was just going through my posts, starting with the first and working my way up, to fix any errors, dead links, dead photos, or whatever I see fit. I was also putting ads in, because I’m poor. I mean really, why not? People buy shit from Amazon all the time. If they click on a link on this site, Amazon sends me a small chunk, and it doesn’t cost anyone anything extra.

Anyhow, I started reading these old posts and getting all nostalgic, when I came across one that ruffled some feathers. I had forgotten about this post, but when I read it again, I wanted to republish it. It’s one of those ones that I wouldn’t dare add any photos to. It’s not funny, and any photos would either diminish it, or rip a hole through my soul, for lack of a better word.

I started looking into republishing old posts, you know, to recycle content that some people might not see, or to post something to fill in the gaps. I just don’t know if it’s a good idea or not.

If I go through with it, what would be an acceptable amount of regurgitation? Once a week? I don’t want to make people hate me my self promoting doppelganger. Fucking attention whore.

I also applied for a job with the Canadian Census 2016 today. It seems like it would be alright, judging from the little flyer they put in the mail. It’s from early March to the end of July, so that’s pretty reasonable weather for banging on doors or whatever the job entails.

I’m also going to be selling some of my composting worms for bait. This is good, because that will help recoup some of the cost of getting them, and setting them up. I also hope to be able to build some flow through bins and sell some composting packages to locals as my red wiggler population grows. I really love these worms. They are so cool and hungry. I’d say they have tripled in population since I got them around August. They could be a blog on their own, really. A boring blog that nobody would read, but a blog nonetheless.

Anyhow, I guess I need to know if one old post a week would bother anyone, and if anyone has ever worked for the census and what it was like. Let me know in the comments or by whatever means you have available that would tickle your fancy.

  1. Never worked for the census but it’s a short term commitment so I say have at it. Nothing to lose. I like the older posts idea. So if we are having a vote similar to the Sons of Anarchy sitting around that big old wooden table it’s a ‘yay’ from me. 

    Sent from my Bell Samsung device over Canada’s largest network.

    • Yeah, I figure that it can’t be too bad, and it says that the schedule is very flexible. I watched one SOA, but couldn’t stand it, so that was it. It was the first one, and I know that everyone says to get through the first season and I’ll be hooked, but do I really want to be? I still haven’t finished The Office, Breaking Bad, or Lost. Actually I did finish Lost, but I have been trying to forget that piece of shit ending for the last year.

      Thanks for your vote!

  2. I definitely think you can bring back old stuff. You don’t even have to schedule it, just use it as you need, or if you want to hear some up to date comments on it. Or, if you didn’t get many comments, and feel it has an important message. For example: the post that “ruffled feathers” about the mis-treatment of native Indians by churches. Just be sure not to re-post that one on a Sunday. Or do that, just to be a dick to God. Cheers!

    • Thanks for the input. I have tons of other good Sunday posts, but sadly, people aren’t sitting at their computers and awaiting my every word on Sunday. I would say that they are all at church, but it’s more likely that they are out drinking and praying to the Hopi sun spirit, Tawa. Winter is almost over here, and I know it’s the praying that did it.

      Anyhow, thanks for taking the time to email me your comments, and I hope that some day your phone and my blog can get along.

      Peace
