Put Dates on Your Blog Posts

You probably learned in elementary school: at the top of your paper, write your name and the date.

It’s so frustrating when I find blog posts that don’t list the author clearly, and even more annoying is when the date is missing. Sometimes I find dates halfway down the page, sandwiched between the writing and the comments section. It should be at the top. Please help me quickly find out if what I’m reading is recent, old, and most importantly: is it still relevant?
