This is always a frustrating thought.  New thing now is longer posts also so depending on old it is you'll have to write how much to each one? 

Others say keep the info but mix it up. Leave older post alone as it's already been indexed by G.

I don't have many old posts to consider, but I think I'd likely review, consider relevance and then update it or use it as a basis for a new post. Lastly, make sure all links are working.

Fluff, rearrange, add a few five syllable words, copy, paste, publish as new blog.

If you are changing audiences, remove the five syllable words.

You can link to old blog at the end.

Remember 'content' is being scanned and labeled. You must decide if you are building authority by preponderance (or deep my including authority links - .edu/gov) or going wide through wider appeal.
