Another question for the blogger bees!
For those of you who got rejected the first time around, what did you do differently on your blog/in your application the 2nd time that got you accepted?
For example, I know a lot of blogger bees have said that they “tried too hard” their first time around, and the second time around they blogged true to their voice and that’s what got them in. I think I had that problem big time, so my posts since getting rejected and realizing that have been in what I feel is a better, more accurate “voice” for myself.
But what did you do with the posts you’d written before that, in the “trying too hard” voice? Did you go back and rewrite them ALL the 2nd time you applied? Did you leave them as-is and just hope they judged your newer posts?
I ask because I want to reapply but I don’t know how to handle the old posts that got me rejected last time. I have almost 70 posts and I cannot possibly go back and rewrite them all. I’ve rewritten the more important ones (dress, vendors, rings, etc.) and I’m happy with how they’ve come out, but I can’t possibly do that for every single post on my blog. Should I hide the less important posts and just rewrite more of the important ones? Should I just leave the old posts as-is and hope they judge me on my newer posts only, which I’ve been conscious to write in my own voice as opposed to trying too hard?
Those of you who got rejected once or more times, what did you do? Is there anything else you did differently on the time you got accepted?
