I’ve been writing on average one blog post a week since I started my business in November 2009. To me, that’s a lot of blog posts.
What I would like to know is:
How important is it for you, as a consumer of blogs, to know when the article was published?
When you read a blogger’s post, do you take into consideration how recently they’ve posted an article as a basis for their credibility? If it’s been a couple weeks since their last post, do you judge the author and accuse them of having “fallen off the blog-wagon”?
Sometimes, the date puts the content into context. If you’re looking for time-sensitive information, you will want to know how current it is to know whether it is applicable or not. Right?
If you write a blog, do you include the date stamp on your blog posts? Why or why not?
