Q: Are all the featured articles and blog posts in each issue relatively new?
Most of them will be. Occasionally, maybe even all. But it isn’t unusual at all to every now and then see an article or post that was originally published a year ago or more.
Good info is good info. If the info’s potentially useful and valuable, I’m not about to deprive you of that info just because it was written a couple of years ago.
(If you think about it, that’s actually a Wordpreneur Reader benefit, now isn’t it?)
As long as it hasn’t gone stale, that is. And that’s one of the things I check for, that the info is current, regardless of when it was written. Oh, I’m absolutely, positively sure I’m going to miss the mark sometimes, but I’d like to think I’ll have significantly more hits than misses.
Well, let’s see if we have a few hits this issue. Let’s do some reading!
