    It is possible to take a ho-hum article and remake it into a real killer post.

    Sometimes I will write an article that I know just isn’t quite on the money and instead of publishing it I will save it as a draft. I find that if I get away from it for a day or two, I have a fresh perspective on it when I return to it.

    My mind has kept working on the article even though I stopped looking at it. Then I can whip it up into the kind of post I want to be known for.
