Blog Maintenance To-Do List

I did a blog makeover back in February of this year but I still have a lot other things I have to tweak that I've been putting off (bad blogger over here). The next few months, I'm planning on doing some housekeeping with this blog and update a few things to keep things current. If it's been a while since you've done some blog maintenance, you can use my to-do list as well! 


  1. Update my header and logo: I used to have a really great header created Jen but I've been working with her on a new one to go with this updated layout. I have been dragging my feet on wrapping this project up but I'm going to prioritize this one.
  2. Fix or delete broken links: I have a ton of broken links on this site. Not because I'm purposefully adding them, but it's usually the links to items featured on this blog that get deleted on the other end. I used a broken links checker and I apparently have over 900!! That's ridiculous and I am working on getting those links removed or updated. 
  3. Update photos to make them SEO friendly: I found out way too late about making images on my blog SEO friendly. There's a whole article on this exact subject but I'm planning on just taking an afternoon or two to make sure all of my photos have an a title and alt text.
  4. Delete old and irrelevant posts: I'm not exactly a fan of self scrubbing the internet but some of my posts are just not relevant any more. I think this is a good time to get rid of those posts.
What are some items on your blog maintenance to-do list?

  3. Hello dear, are you sure that deleting old posts is a good idea? I'll check it up again but I think that SEO-wise you'd better edit than delete them. N. 2 is on my list too! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose NEW BEAUTY POST

  4. Some of the points in your to do list are in mine as well! I believe I have thousands of broken links which need fixing and I never have time to fix or delete them, but hopefully soon I'll have the opportunity to do that! Thank you for reminding me and good luck with crossing each point out! :)
