no copy of an old post

A very important skill down the line as a blogger/writer is to actually be able to find what is missing from a post for it to be successful and adding it.

A post "edit" can be just as valuable (if not more) than a new post.

For example with regards to SEO, that page already exists, Google already indexes it, but it's not ranking too well. With an edit and a "re-publish" (edit the date to now, because Google prefers fresh content), it might start ranking well.

Of course this is more on the SEO/marketing side than writing.
