4:24 PMMaintaining Your Blog
|It's very important to maintain your blog. If you have links and banners on
your blog and they are not working anymore you should fix or remove
them. It makes your blog look very unattractive and it is very
irritating when someone goes to click on a link only to find that it
doesn't work anymore. I have seen many
blogs that don't keep up the maintenance of their blogs. If you have
started blogging and have found out that it's really not for you than
you should delete it. Don't keep it up and don't do anything with it.
Who wants to keep visiting a blog that has been abandoned long ago?|
Sometimes sites that we have joined go out of business. It happens sometimes, but if they do, remove or replace the links. You should periodically check your links just to make sure they are working. When people click on your links you want them to be able to go to the website that they are interested in. If your links don't work than that could be a possible customer that you are missing out on. Only because your link is not working.
Also, when you put up links back track and see if the link is working. I always back track. What I mean by backtracking is after you put up the links go click on them yourself to see if they are working properly. I have found on many occasions that links that I thought were working were not because I made a mistake and didn't type the correct html and thus, rendering the link unclickable. Mistakes happen, and that's okay. It's just nice to catch mistakes so they don't end up costing you visitors and possibly customers. People won't continue visiting your blog if everytime they click on links they don't work.
Keeping the maintenance up on your blog is very important. If something is not working make sure you fix it. You wouldn't leave something on your car that isn't working. You would fix it. You should do the same with your blog.
