What We've Been Up To
Some days you just don’t have it in you to write another article or blog post. You may feel as if you’ve exhausted every means of a topic, or you’re just burned out with content marketing. When this mood sets in, the last thing you want to do is cut back on content creation. You still have an audience to cater to, and they’re always hungry for information. Instead, recycle and reuse some of your older content. Many new visitors probably haven’t read it before, and it’s fairly easy to put a new spin on what you’ve already written. Here are a few ways to transform something old into something new.
While the 2016 presidential election is still more than a year away, Halloween is right around the corner.

One way to find out is to look at historically large changes, whether good or bad, in the Dow. We looked up the 20 largest gains, losses and intraday swings and plotted them against the backdrop of historical context. What we found is that the stock market tends to bounce back after every major decline, with the bigger dips taking longer to recover from, as you might expect. Take a look at the historical picture of the roller coaster that is Wall Street.
