It'll be of no surprise to any of you who know me as a #PersonalWebsite and #blogging advocate that I would be very much looking forward to Pauline Narvas's talk at #WiTNotts this Thursday! And as it's remote, hopefully more of you can join!

Also doing NaBloPoMo (https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/11/01/national-blog-post-month/ ) helped lots as I got used to publishing pretty quickly, which was kinda the point of it, for me at least
I used to refine things lots, but it meant spending hours on a post that took 5 minutes to read. Long posts I do still refine over time, but generally want them done at most a few days after it's finished being written.
If it's a Blogumentation post (https://www.jvt.me/posts/2017/06/25/blogumentation/ ) then I'll actively not refine it too much as a long post as the point is that it's for me in the future so if its not as readable I'll just edit it then

An interesting idea, but surely you'd not want to break existing links to your articles, and instead have it update the article to say "this may be outdated, we're reviewing this"?

#10MoreBlogPosts sounds like a great initiative - hope that it'll help get more folks into blogging.
I've found it's really helped me personally since starting to work on blogumentation (blogging as a form of self-documentation https://www.jvt.me/posts/2017/06/25/blogumentation/ )
