One of My Favourite WordPress Plugins

I have played around a lot with WordPress plugins. Some of them are more useful than others. We have to be careful with how many plugins we use as they can slow down our site. We must choose wisely.

One of my favourite is Revive Old Posts.

I used to use it but for some technical reasons, I had to strip all the plugins from my site. It took me a while to reinstall Revive Old Posts but I’m so glad that I did. I have seen a noticeable jump in the hits on my blog.

What does Revive Old Posts do? It grabs old posts from your archives and reposts them on social media. You can decide how many posts, how often to share and what categories to share from.

One of the reasons I like Revive Old Posts is that reminds me of older posts that I had totally forgotten about. I truly believe that our archives are one of our greatest resources. But how do we keep track of them? This plugin will bring these to light.

Another good thing is that it gives me the chance to check out those old posts so I can see if I need to edit them. I may want to change the graphic or I may need to fix a link. This is a great way to find out.

Finally, it reminds me of posts that need to be deleted from my blog. There have been times something is posted on Twitter and I use that as the opportunity to delete it if the information in the post is out of date.

I find it to be a great resource. Go ahead and install it and try it out. You can always uninstall it if you don’t like it.

  1. Hey Stephen! Thanks for your post; I’m considering this plugin, too. A few questions:

    1) Do you use the Pro version?
    2) Can it re-post your social media posts, or, just your old blog posts? (Or, both?)
