What I’ve read elsewhere about blogging, aka content creation, you start establishing reputation by writing how to articles that are practical, something I’ve done and continue to do.

At this point I think I have enough posts that I can just advertise my posts and update them a bit to keep them relevant and not worry about writing new posts. Yes, Google and other search engines may favour new content over old, but they mainly favour relevant content, some of my blog posts, like the one with virtual box links will be relevant as long as virtual box exists. Others like the ones on Angular.js will need to be updated or rewritten when the next version of Angular comes out. But that’s still far less work than trying to create completely new and fresh articles every week or every month.
