  1. Hey Cori,

    Glad to read your informative post. I’ve used Broken link checker plugins to remove broken links from blog and it works well and always helps me to fix such problems. We tend to get caught up on the design and functionality of our sites.
    The Jetpack plugin is an extremely popular plugin with a lot of features and extensions bundled together. Eventually, thanks for sharing your worthy tips as well as exploring beneficial services with us.

    With best wishes,

    Amar kumar

    • Hi Amar,

      I love the broken link checker. With the work-from-home job listings I post, I always have broken links because the listings expire. So I’m constantly checking it to unlink them.

      I removed Jetpack a while back and recently installed it again since CommentLuv is no longer supported, I’m ready to switch over as soon as I notice problems with comments. Plus they have other great features too. 🙂

      Thanks for coming by to read my post and for your comment. Have a great week!

  2. Hey Cori,

    Cleaning of your blog is the must to do thing. Many people come to me about the bigger size of their database.

    Just a few days ago, one of my clients asked me why is her database size 60MB with 50 posts.

    Apart from that, updating your plugins, your bio is really important. Make your blog fresh and attractive.

    Thanks for this wonderful post.

    • Hi there Ravi!

      We definitely have to keep up with the maintenance of our blog. The last thing we need is downtime due to an error that could have been prevented if we’d only taken the time to clean up our blog.

      I like to update my bio every new year, it reminds me to stay on top of it. 🙂

      Thanks for coming by to read my post and for your comment!

    • Hi Enstine,

      How have you been? I’m so glad you see you back and how thoughtful of you to consider me!

      I totally rely on broken link checker. With the work-from-home round up posts I do the links break once the listing expires. I’d have a lot of posts to read without it. 🙂

      Thank you for coming by to ready my post and for your comment. I will be by your blog tomorrow to say hello!

  3. Hi Cori,

    Wonderful indeed, and a much required post 🙂

    Yes, Spring is right here, in fact already arrived our end, so this comes very much in time! All of these things are on our to-do list, and we keep waiting for the time in hand before we get down to them – especially the old posts take a huge time of ours, yet they require so much attention, isn’t it? Good reminder about the author bio and profile pic as well.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice, rest of the week and a great month ahead 🙂

    • Hi Harleena,

      Updates are needed but it’s hard to close shop even for five minutes right? I know you have a lot of members on your site and they rely on your content. Have you completed all your updates? I still have to look at my categories but it’s still on my to-do list. 🙂

      I’m glad I was helpful with the reminders. 🙂 Thanks for coming by to read this post and for your comment. I hope all is well!

  4. Great suggestions. I’ve bookmarked this for later as I do need to do several of the things you mentioned, especially updating my plugins. I’m also in the process of deleting old posts and updating others to fit my current blog style better.

  5. When I checked for broken links on my blog a few weeks ago I was floored at the number! Mostly from comments but it still affects your SEO. So that took a bit of cleaning up. I’m also itching to change my layout, we’ll see 🙂 Awesome tips here!

    • Girl, when I checked my broken links this morning, I had 89! I realized I deleted old posts and images and forgot to check the links – I had some from the comments, too.

      I get the redesign itch all the time. 🙂 I’d love to work with you, email me so we can chat about what you’re looking for.

      Thanks for the read and for the comment!

    • Hey Joe (as I’m typing this I’m singing that Jimi Hendrix song, hehe)

      There is so much to do with our blog that chores like this often get overlooked – I’m guilty of it myself. 🙂

      I hope these tips helped! Thanks for reading and for commenting. Have a great rest of the week!

      Cori

    • Thanks B!

      LOL – I’ve already started spring cleaning the blog. I’ve deleted old posts and images and I’ve already changed up the categories.

      You know I’m getting the redesign bug again but I’m holding on to this theme for a while longer. 🙂

      Glad you came by gf. Thanks for the read and comment!

    • Thanks Renee! You are right my dear, these small changes can have a big impact on our blog. Now I have to practice what I preach and get to spring cleaning mine, hehe. 🙂

      Hope you’re having a great day! Talk soon. 🙂
