Even putting the post (or other writing) away for an hour or two and returning to edit it can be beneficial.

It's the "fresh eye" view that's needed for editing. I sometimes get that by going for a walk or by cleaning up the kitchen or reading the New York Times for a half hour. Or I switch from writing one piece to researching another, and then circle back to edit the first.
