Ways to Recycle Your Articles
by guest blogger, Hope Clark
1. Create an Ebook
Categorize, edit, marry the topics into sections, and voila! An ebook. Give it serious attention, though. Your posts WILL need editing, trust me. Time tends to show us how our writing has improved, and some topics get a tad stale in the interim as well. You must keep your material fresh!
2. Fluff them up for recycling
Take your posts and connect them to current events or more recent changes, mantras, fads or lessons. Your
old material takes on new life with the latest added to it.
And you thought your blog posts were just free writing that had no financial worth!

Create a class
Whether a webinar, conference presentation, podcast or coaching, identify the subjects that address the same topic and see if there isn’t a thread of a theme there. If you have as many posts as I do, you might have multiple classes available.
