PGP bet practices when key expires?

I just noticed that my GnuPG key expired today. I ran "gpg --edit-key",
extended the expiration date another year, and then pushed it out to
the keyserver at

Is this the correct way to update a key? Are there any issues I need to
address, that might arise because the key had expired before I extended
its expiration date?
