Spring cleaning extends to much more than your house- this is the perfect time to clean up/update your blog! Here are 6 blog elements to spring clean/update.
1. Your sidebar
For me at least your sidebar is such an important element to any blog. Clean up any/all elements within a sidebar that’s unkept or distracting-then move some stuff around/update the info provided (if it doesn’t do that already).
2. Your drafts
Who else has like 20 drafts that needs work/you swear you’re gonna post soon? Take some time to go through them and trash the ones you haven’t touched in months.
I seriously need to do this. Just delete the ones you aren’t really updating or using.
4. Clean up your plugins
I read hundreds of thousands of WordPress articles that recommended several plugins– and I downloaded sooo many plugins that I probably don’t use- time to purge and get rid of them!
5. Update and re-share old posts
Now is the time to re-read those old posts, update them, add or take out some things etc. Plus re share them!
6. Your appearance
Last, but certainly not least-update your blog design! Nothing huge, but edit some things/add others. Fix some links, change your call to actions, etc.
Do you spring clean your blog? What will you update?
