Tired of repetitive blogs

June 2, 2009 4:17am CST
Maybe it's just me but do you ever feel that due to the nature of blogs that some end up posting rehashes of something which they had already posted. For example I found a personal development blog at the beginning of last year which was about a year old and had amazing content. But now a year on I get frustrated when I find that the latest post is basically a rewrite of what had already been said in at least 1 earlier post. In fact it has now caused me to unsuscribe from said blog. So does anyone else get frustrated by this and do you reckon that this is one of the biggest negatives of having a blog, once you have covered your niche you are forced to just do rehashes to keep the content flowing?

Yesss, I have seen this. I am a blogger and I do understand that writing content that is always fresh and new becomes more difficult with time. It helps if you have a niche that can easily handle more than just one, same old same old, topic. There is a point to be made about taking old content and putting a fresh spin on it time to time for people new to the blog. Good question. : )

Oh I agree, once in a while revisiting an old post and adding a new spin to it is something which needs to be done. It's just frustrating from a readers point of view when this seems to be an ongoing theme instead of posting something completely fresh.

Yes, i agree that this is one of the biggest problems out there with bloggers. However, this also means that you have not learnt well about niche. You can not fill one blog with all the info about one niche! Knowledge is endless, just take a look at other sites/blogs in niche, you will find something new every time!

This is the most common problem bloggers deal with daily.Basically, all the blogs when run out of content they will head over to article directories or other same blogs and use whatever they like.
