Old Commentaries become Timeless

By on August 6th, 2014 in Content

With over 2500 articles written over 10 years there are many of my commentaries that have faded in their significance, and the points made are no longer valid, however, that is easily remedied, with some judicious editing.

Many of my investing commentaries over the years leaving up to 2008, actually are becoming quite relevant to the current market situation, however, simply trying to pass them off as current commentary would be lazy and lacks a level of panache. If you add a simple preface to the post something similar to:

Do note the date of this original post, just before the great EXPLOSION of 2008, interesting the parellels eh? (When is next market crash 2007)

Suddenly that article becomes a foreboding warning, is it not?

Another simple tactic is just reading over a commentary about Debt and such and add in exact dates on when the commentary was being made, and remove any specific mention of coming current events (at the time), as I did with Great Canadian Debts, it had a reference to a coming provincial/federal election.

I am even following my own advice with this collection, updating Paypal Donation Buttons, which was previously a little short and didn’t really mention Paypal by name either. There are many similar posts here that really do need a bit of a clean up as well, and maybe some SEO work.
