Are you a blogger or podcaster looking to save some time each week promoting your great content? Are you searching for a cost-effective way to share your legacy content across multiple social networks while you spend time with your family each week? Almost seven years ago, TeacherCast was built on a little website platform called WordPress and ever since then a little, yet massively important plugin called Revive Old Post has been the backbone of the success I've had as a blogger and podcaster. This month, Revive Old Post has completely updated itself that I'm thrilled to share this new version with you. It is with great pleasure that we announce Revive Old Post as a winner of our TeacherCast Best in Class Award for WordPress Plugins.
Why Should You Revive Your Old Posts?
For many bloggers, the process of content creation takes a very long time. You have to first come up with a concept. Next you have to research, organize and write (or record) your content. Once finished, you then begin the process of promoting your content.
What if there was a way of having your website do some of this work for you?
Enter … WordPress
Ever since 2012, TeacherCast has been built on the WordPress platform. By creating your website using WordPress, you have the ability to imagine and build any style website you choose. The reason for this is through a system of plugins that provide extra functionality to your website. Of all the plugins I have tried, tested, used, and recommended to family, friends, and clients, Revive Old Post is at the top of the list.
What does the Plugin Do?
Revive Old Post provides an automated system that allows users to reuse and recycle content on their website. There are several versions of Revive Old Post to fit the needs of the casual blogger or the largest team of social media marketers.
How do I set up Revive Old Post?
Like any plugin, you will need to visit your WordPress dashboard and in the Revive Old Post settings screen. The plugin is very simple to setup.

The settings screen is divided in six sections. The first thing you will do is to connect your Social Media accounts.
