I’m doing a bunch of cleaning up behind the scenes here on Mommy of a Monster. I’m renaming categories and getting rid of ones I never use. I’m trying to improve SEO on old posts. I’m going through and cleaning up blog posts and getting rid of ones that have nothing to do with anything, and sprucing up posts by getting rid of irrelevant information. I’m just trying to clean the place up.
I’m also trying to figure out if I should keep posts that really don’t ever see the light of day, and wouldn’t even if I cleaned up the SEO for them. Posts like my old Monster Likes (round up of favorite blog posts I found throughout the week) and product reviews that never get any traffic.
Which leads me to asking this question: How do you decide which posts stay and go when cleaning up on your blog? Or am I being crazy by going through and getting rid of posts at all…should I just leave them alone?
I know it sounds a little anal, but I really don’t want a bunch of clutter, you know? I want my readers to only find stuff that is relevant and interesting…not a post about a giveaway that ended two years ago. Help!
