Blogs and websites can grow stale, and when that happens the quality drops and readers start to disappear. When this happens it might be time for your website or blog to undergo some spring cleaning. Sometimes the site just needs a few touch-ups like a new theme or some fresh content, other times you need to plan for a complete pivot in what you are doing with your blog.
