There are many things that all blogger must do on a regular basis to ensure that their blog remain useful and functional. Some of the tasks you should be performing are listed below.
1. People expect your blog homepage changing. If your blog is static and unchanging there is no reason for someone to come back again - after all, they've already seen it so why return? One major way to get them to come back is to change the content constantly and to be sure that your visitors know it is changing.
2. Occasionally review your blog. When you look over a page, check your grammar, spelling and accuracy.
3. Subscribe to a service which monitor your blog on a regular basis. This is important, as if your blog is constantly "bouncing" you will find it being removed from search engines and your visitor levels will drop.
4. Learn as much as you can about internet security, and ensure that, to the best of your abilities and knowledge, that your blog is secure. This ensures that your visitors information remains confidential and safe. It also protects you and your blog host from harm.
5. Promote your blog constantly. Every single day you should do something, anything, which attempts to get people to your blog. This is extraordinarily critical in order to ensure that people continue to visit your blog day after day. You can leave a comment on another blog or use any advertising programs like adsense, adbrite, etc, to increase your blog visitors.
6. Another task that must be performed on a regular basis is checking for a "broken link". It is most common with external links (sites move, are abandoned or are modified all of the time) but can occur occasionally with internal links.
7. You need to stay up-to-date on new technologies which can use to improve your blog. In addition, getting certified, joining community is essential to staying current and active.
8. A task you should be performing on a regular basis is to review your statistics. At a minimum, you should check your page counts to be sure that your blog is being viewed. At best, you need to know where people are coming from, which browsers they are using and what they visited while they were at your blog.
