3. Addressing Content

If your blog has existed for several years, it’s likely to have addressed several topics and niches during its long run. It makes sense: keeping a blog populated with consistent content is no easy endeavor, and many bloggers often turn towards various subjects in order to fill this need. However, this tactic can also give a blog a cluttered, disorganized feel, and make it appear as though it is all over the place.

4 Stay Consistent

If its been a while since a blog has seen any fresh content, then old posts are most likely on the front page. Posts tagged with dates clearly convey the stagnant nature of your blog, and give it an old feel.

Allowing a blog go stale is the quickest way to let it collect dust and fall to the wayside.
