Something I learned early on during my past few years going through the self help and personal development phase was this idea of the Pareto Principle aka the 80/20 Rule. This was a principle that would come up over and over again in any community I got into, and it has to do with trying to optimize one’s effectiveness using the right amount of leverage in the right areas using the least amount of energy and effort.
What I am talking about it this. There is now over 650 posts on this website/blog. From the statistic analysis programs that are used to track the traffic and visitors of the website I can see that in terms of the numbers, a small percentage of the writing posts get most of the visitors, as well as comments. This is why I have decided to rewrite, edit, improve, and add upon 20-300 of the top visited and commented posts on this website. Now that is only about 3-5% of all the posts but that is where most people who are searching on Google, Bing, Yahoo, and other search engines are getting to first when they arrive to the site and I do want to make the website an attractive place for visitors. First impressions do matter a tremendous amount, and this effort in making the most popular web posts even better will only help the website and the future readers later on.
For the current readers you will not be effected in any way since the changes are invisible for people who only read the most recent articles. I think this is a good investment of my time and a smart move to make the website better. So Work Smarter
