Looking for your opinions on page updates, and page creation

Hi all,


I'm looking for opinions on a couple different questions:

First, what do you think the pros and cons would be for updating a Wizzley page that reviews calendars (update to 2013 calendars) vs. creating a new calendar page and letting the old one slip into obscurity?    On one hand, I'd be adding an additional Wizzley page (I'm going along rather slowly right now with my writing, and additional page would be nice for me).  On the other, would an older page have more authority, and thus make more sense to update it?


Second, would there be any reason NOT to write a page now about a seasonal subject that has just passed, or is near the end of the season?   For instance, I want to write a page about a garden pest, but the gardening season is really just about over here.

I would revise the calendar page.

I would also write the gardening page, since you  have a keen idea, it will be poised and ready for the up coming growing, planting and gardening season if you will. I'd keep in mind you're writing it for the 2013 season. 

Plus, You can store it in drafts for as long as you like. I'd create it and leave it in draft mode for some time, but that's just me.

Thanks, Katie,

After posting my question, I was realizing it would be MUCH easier to update the calendar page rather than create a new one, since much of the copy could stay the same, rather than writing something brand new :-)    it would take a fraction of the time to update than create anew.

I'll probably get to the gardening page soon too, since I am "psyched" about it now (idea came from a friend who found a weird little beastie in her garden), and who knows if I'll feel like writing about it in 6 - 9 months.

About the gardening page go ahead and write it and publish it too. Give it time to mature, I have a series of 5 or 6 articles on tomato plants on HP and wrote them around November and December of last year. This tomato season each of them was getting at least a 100 views each day.

Thanks, lobobrandon,


It would actually be about a pest on tomato plants.   I'll write it (soon), and let it mature.

I agree the maturity date for any article is around 3 months to be really seasoned, safe and sound. :)K

Great, PM me when you're done with it. Probably I could link to it from my articles there.
