Proud of Old Posts? These 5 Widgets Will Help You Get New Eyes on Your Archives

Have you put your heart and soul into many of your entries, only to watch them sink to the bottom of your blog and eventually disappear on to the second page, where they’re now collecting dust?

These 5 widgets will help bring your old posts back to life by making them more accessible to your readers:


The Archives Widget organizes your previously published posts by month, making it easy for readers to browse your old content.


The Categories Widget organizes your posts by category. This makes it easy for readers to discover other posts that interest them.


The Tag Cloud Widget gives your readers an at-a-glance view of your favorite subjects, and can be handy for those who want to find more of your posts about specific topics.


The Top Posts Widget displays your most visited posts as of the last 48 hours. This widget provides a great way to showcase your most popular work.


The Pages Widget displays your blog’s pages in your sidebar, which can help encourage readers to spend more time checking out your content.

  2. Dear Erica-

    I’m kinda new so my “old” posts aren’t collecting dust, but these tips will be great for me moving forward. Now if I can get these widgets in correctly, I’ll go play Lotto.
