Truth About Old Posts…

I’m a guilty blogger who provides mixed information because of Old Posts which become obsolete. Bloggers unintentionally fill the internet with virtual trash. I do believe this is one good reason why critical thinking needs to be used for researching the internet. It was the comments of strangers which bought my attention to some old directions on my blog. After having the obsolete information pointed out I wonder should it be removed?

After pondering on the old obsolete information, I decided not to delete the posts. Instead, I view this as a teachable moment to point out how important it is to use ones critical thinking skills when reading blog posts. Blog posts tend to be dated and chronological. A good researcher would look at dates as well as a topic when determining the value of the information. My message provides one practical reason for supporting using both critical thinking and digital citizenship skills when reading blog posts.
