Best way to display older posts
You could feature an older post as a “sticky post” and then switch them out, say, weekly.
Adding the Categories widget might also help.
Link to them when appropriate in your newer posts.
It’s easy to post a link in a text widget in your blog’s sidebar that when clicked will display a random post found in your blog. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/02/13/wordpress-create-a-random-post-icon/
You could also create a static page for Popular Posts or Selected Posts. Mine gets a lot of traffic. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/popular-posts/
And a very fast way to display those popular posts in your sidebar is by using an RSS widget and the feed from a special Category that you create, such as “Popular”.

Happy new year everybody!
Thanks so much everyone! I will give them all a try :)
I agree hope everyone is having a great start to their new year.
I have over 4000 posts and can tell you that no matter what you do, new stuff will ALWAYS outrank old stuff. Hardly anyone reads my old stuff, even though it’s prominently featured on my site.
Focus on writing great new stuff.
