I tend to make edits after my blog posts are finished and posted. However, I read in Blogging for Dummies that this is not desirable. I understand that readers pick up the info quickly, on the other hand, I enjoy editing and polishing the copy, or adding thoughts. Sometimes I have to fix errors, like misspelling Dr. Seuss (groan).

Do you edit after posting, and how bad is it and why?

I edit if I find any mistakes or misspellings. Otherwise, it will bother me every time I see it. I don't see anything wrong with doing that.
I edit like crazy within the first 10 minutes of publishing. I really need to start another blog where I can get the kinks out before putting them on the main one!
I definitely fix my post if I see something wrong. Although, I think that the original version is sent to RSS readers, so my RSS subscribers don't get the benefit of the correction.
It's not necessarily an error, but more futzing w/ phrases and wording.
Do the readers re-publish it after each edit? Or do they just post the first one? I often go back and fix any mistakes that I spot - and since I blog late at night, they are leigion! Anyway, I guess it would be a drag if the readers re-published the same article every time you tweaked it, but otherwise, I don't see a problem.
I hope not because I do it all the time?
I'm so glad to see the responses to this post! I always worry about it too because for some reason, I just don't see alot of things until it's officially published. I usually edit all of my posts.
Oh I think editing is just fine:) But I'm pretty much of the school of thought that if it's your blog, you can do whatever you want!
yes I've edited after posting- I'm a horrible typists, making an incredible amount of typos. Don't worry I'm sure we're not alone!

For some reason I tend to find the errors after its already posted. So I try and go back right after I post something and make the corrections quickly.

Whatever makes you happy do, that's what I say!
It's okay for spelling/grammar or layout errors or any editing for the first say 10 minutes after posting but I wouldn't change to much around later. Most people read the post after it first comes out and won't get the best. If you need to do that, don't publish the post at first but save as a draft. After a night's sleep or something, go back and fix anything you need to and then publish.
I do it all the time. I always catch typos or phrases that need clarifying after I publish a post. I guess seeing the words in a different format (live in the blog as opposed to in the editing screens) helps you catch things that you just didn't see before.
