  • speaking of uncommitted, at the end of module six, ” how to get clients” your blog challenge is six years old and yet just under the challenge of 2010 you write ” sites where the last post listed is over a month old make you look uncommitted”.
    am I missing something?
    p.s. I have noticed many areas on the www web site where the last entry is from 2010. I would think that things have really
    changed since then. an I wrong?
    cheers.

    • Hi John,

      Nearly every category on the site has had material added in the last three months, most in the last month. Or are you asking about updates to individual posts?

      • Hi Heather,
        actually what caught my eye initially was in the sixth module of the twelve step road map, at the very end under the heading “platform specific tips” sub heading “Blogging” where it refers to the blog challenge of 2010.
        there is a note indicating that” a site where the last post is over a month old makes you look uncommitted”
        how would one characterize a post from over six years ago.
        don’t get me wrong, I am finding a wealth of useful information on the site but I find many references to 2010 which makes me wonder how pertinent some of the information might be.
        cheers

        • Okay. That makes more sense. I was worried you couldn’t see half the site! “Last” as in “most recent”. If your most recent post is over a month old, you look uncommitted. You don’t want to remove older posts. They help search engines and people see what your site is about and having years worth of posts adds credibility. People can see you’ve been at it for a while and that you post consistently. Some things do become less relevant over time, but a lot of information remains evergreen. Hope that helps. Thank you!
