How to Republish Old Blog Posts – and Why You’ll Want to
 
Problogger Darren Rowse has some tips for republishing old blog posts:

...Instead of struggling to come up with brand new ideas, look at the ones you’ve already had.

Are there posts buried in your archives that new readers would find helpful? Have some of your best posts become a little dated?

This is a great opportunity to update and republish your posts to get them in front of a fresh audience (or remind long-term readers they still exist)....
How to Republish Old Blog Posts – and Why You’ll Want to

I have followed Darren since way back when he started and respect his work. However I'm not sure changing the publication date and rescheduling for in the future is a smart idea. Some other long time professional bloggers have done this and when I click on the notice in my RSS feed I am disappointed that it is republished content. I think a better approach would be to update the article and let Google reindex the newer version.

Anyone that is not a popular blogger tried the reschedule idea?

This works good with evergreen content, in other-words content that is good all year long ;)
There are several plugins to republish your content, some will even help by changing a few words or the date.
Here is one I've used successfully.

What do you specifically mean by "used successfully"?

Republishing old posts is a great idea to keep them worthy of the time. You can make them detailed add some researched content, or also use infographics.

You can update existing posts and accomplish the same thing without republishing it. ;)
