It’s Hard For Bloggers To Write Timeless Content
Many blogs write about software tutorials and using websites guides but then the next version of the software comes out and the site gets or kicks out some features that it had added which often happens with Google Products and this kills off the Content Duration of your posts. Soon after they will be seen as outdated and no longer relevant by search engines and you will see a decline in traffic and not know what to do about it. How long content will last is something many bloggers forget about when writing posts but at the same time thinking too much about the length your content will last can also lead to less writing and even long periods of bloggers block.
In some cases you can try to rewrite your older content to become more relevant in the current time but sometimes this is not always that easy and even worth the effort. This is where you have to reinvent your blog and that can be a problem if your blog is a time niche blog such as a blog about a pacific model of computer, camera or phone like many gadget blogs out there in the blogosphere, I dont’t know if people still use that word I am not sure since I do not get to read many blogs anymore mostly because I can be a little lazy if I see something is not really worth spending the time doing like reading the same stuff with new words.
This is why it’s kind of important to have a second or 3rd blog at least but keeping them all updated can be a problem without a content plan but as you all know plans never seem to work out but planning gets things done.
