Updating Old Blog Posts | Do I or Don't I?

Do you think old content should be updated to match the standard of your current content?
This is something I've been going back and forth over for quite a while now! On the one hand, I love the fact that my blog shows how much I've improved and changed over time, and I love being able to look back on old pictures and posts and remember what life was like when I wrote it! It feels wrong to go back and add current pictures to a blog post that was written in a different part of my life, I feel like the text and pictures wouldn't match up.
But then at the same time, it makes me sad to think that the work I put into all my old posts won't be seen by anyone because they don't have pretty pictures. I'm proud of the content I've produced over time and it's nice to know that someone else has enjoyed it too. 
Blogging is my favourite hobby. I started this blog as a way to talk about all the things I love, as a way to improve my writing skills, and as a way to document my life so that I would have something to look back on in the future. I love that I can look back and see how much I've improved over time, but at the same time I don't want those blog posts to be forgotten about. I've seen multiple blogs that have updated their old content and are now picture perfect right from the beginning, but at the same time I've seen blogs that have kept their old pictures and still do just as well. 

What are your opinions on updating old content? Do you think it's something that everyone should do or is it best to see our improvement over time?




  1. Interesting topic to discuss. I would leave the posts as they are. I think that adds a lot of personality to one's blog. :)

    One thing I'm happy about - I don't get to see my old, over the top, blog design :D That I gladly updated! Haha.


    1. I do think I'm leaning more towards leaving them as they are! :) Oh yeah I definitely like updating the design, I'm thinking of doing a new one in the new year! xxx

  2. I think of post kind of like mile stones, to look back on and see how far I've come.

  3. I personally like to leave my blog posts as they, no matter how bad they are! It's better to put the effort into brand new posts.
