If you are publishing articles elsewhere but then a visitor goes to your site and the blog hasn't been added to for over a year, surely that doesn't help you very much?
I am not criticizing that your blog isn't up do date, but if you are doing article writing as your post implies, just querying why you would give preference to your content appearing on other sites?
