How do you update your site after a relatively long break?
I got my site online, built with BlueVoda. The last update has been quite a while ago, but meanwhile I've been busy writing new articles and I've got enough new writings to finally publish an updated version of the site. Purpose is to update it more frequently in the future, but I got no specific idea how long gaps between updates would be. Depending on inspiration for new writings, there could be weeks with more than 1 edited page or newly added page, and there could be a few months before the next edit or added page comes.
How do you, after a relatively long inactivity, add the new pages without messing up the internal structure of the site with all pages properly sorted and with internal links (menu bars, internal links on pages etc) being messed up? I know from the tutorial and from my first site version how to make internal hyperlinks, however I am more looking for advise on adding new pages easily and publishing them without having to worry that it would make other pages unreachable for site visitors due to the structure and internal links no longer working properly. Especially if it's been a longer while since the latest update, the risk that you forgot about how everything was linked is high, and then if you edit or add a new page, you want to publish without making pages unreachable or dead links ...
Which tricks do other BlueVoda users use to avoid ever having the site messed up when editing or adding content after a relatively long time since the latest update?
