As I'm sure everyone knows, blogs are a lot of work. Constantly adding new content can get old. However, there are a lot of blogs for sale for this reason. Many have great assets. What are some ways you've transformed a blog after buying to lower the maintenance of the site? I'd love to hear about successful full transformations of the site not simply tips like "outsource your writing" or "find guest bloggers".
P.s. I'd rather this wasn't a discussion on why you should or should not buy a blog.
