I’ve received a lot of great feedback in the comments about yesterday’s post, Mastering the Trap-Bath Split. With that in mind, I’ve made some minor revisions to the post to eliminate points of confusion.
I’ve sensed there is an unwritten rule in the blogosphere that you aren’t supposed to revise posts once they’re done (outside of crossing things out, which I find to be a clunky convention).
This is a rule I am going to break, for a few reasons:
1.) Blogging is a medium conducive to mistakes.
2.) I don’t want to leave inaccuracies uncorrected.
And most importantly:
3.) I really like getting feedback from others, and putting that feedback into practice.
With that in mind I’m working on developing something of a “revisions” page that explains what has been changed in various posts. But that’s still in the works.
Anyway, I’m really thankful for all the kind words and great tidbits of info. Keep it coming!

I think a revisions page is a great idea! The only thing I might add is that if there are already comments referring to errors/things that you change, you may want to add a note at the beginning or end of the updated post to note that it’s been updated and link to the revisions page.
Your blog looks awesome; I subscribed =)
Thanks, Keri! You make a really good point: I’m going to try to make it clear if I’ve changed anything.
