Drake just announced that he’ll be releasing an “album” this Friday, featuring all of our favorite loose cuts. Songs that we no longer have to sit thru ads on youtube or shuffle thru Soundcloud for because they will be available on our favorite streaming platform.
Drake just widely exposed something I already knew and something you will know today. Old quality work can always be repurposed for a new gain. That album will surely debut on the charts and will be streamed religiously because people already love those songs and believe or not some Drizzy “fans” have never heard those songs before. Ridiculous!
Old work can only be repurposed if it is QUALITY and ORGANIZED.
As with myself, I do what Drizzy does with every LIFE LOGS release. Every article that is in my book(s) have already been published online. They are articles that already went viral (and still going viral) and are quality written works.
However, the book format organizes those quality articles. Someone who is a new reader or even an avid reader doesn’t want to shuffle thru my blog and/or website for all the articles to read them.
So every few months, I compile articles from a certain time period into book format. The book features the same articles with some minor updates if I have additional or a change of thought w/ an article that was previously purposed.
Do not fall into the trap of thinking “I must always be creating” no you don’t. Continue to create at a pace comfortable at you and think of how you can repurpose some of your old work that’s been overlooked in the past.
Once you’ve successfully done that people will anticipate your next move just like we’re already anticipating that next Drake album.
