I applied three times; I never re-wrote older posts. I deleted posts that were really bad/just fluff, and I wrote a lot of new posts so that the old posts weren’t at the front of the blog anymore. I think a lot of the people voting won’t dig way into your archives (but that is just a guess, since I never did when I was voting).

Good luck!

I got accepted my first time, but what I would recommend to you is just working on new posts as opposed to editing old ones. Maybe delete some really bad ones and rewrite them completley. Focus on your blog being less of a “diary” and more of a story. Does that make sense? I would also say one thing that really helped me “find my voice” was to consider my audience. I try to ask myself “would someone who doesn’t know me want to read this?”
