Cleaning Your Blog Up From Time To Time
Are You Cleaning Your Blog?
Have you taken time to go back and clean up some old posts and images on your blog? Cleaning your blog is similar to doing housework. The work is never done and there is always something to clean up.
I had started with old images that were not showing on my pages as they were on blogspot from way back. So I had to re-save the images and put them in the media files here on the self-hosted wordpress site. You can now see them. I haven’t finished all of them yet because it takes a lot of time. I also made sure the images were okay to use and not picked up from anywhere on the net. If there were I changed them. And once I’m on an old post I am cleaning up the words with additional info and with Yoast to guide me through. Adding new h2 headers and making sure the length is correct. I used to post very short blogs.
Cleaning Your Blog, Again and Again
I have also cleaned up the widgets on the side and am trying to keep that area clean. It is not always easy cleaning the blog to remove things to keep it less cluttered. how do you choose? Some things I really liked but if it’s cluttered or slows down the blog, why keep them?
I had deleted the blogroll after reading reasons not to have a blogroll. I had to agree after reading about it and looking at other blogs for a while. I did not want to offend anyone by not having them listed and as time went one it seemed harder to do. Plus it saves time when someone changes their blog name or URL. You may guess which one of my favorite bloggers that does that. A blogger with guts can always make changes. I sometimes get sick to my stomach making them but am usually relieved after that I do. I’ve thought of changing up the pages as some show in the header area and others in the footer. I’m undecided at this point. Do you often change up your widgets and footers?
