I’ve been using the Computing category as a catch-all for anything related to computers short of video games for awhile now and it was getting rather lengthy. Awhile back I set up a Web Design category for talking about that specific topic, but hadn’t moved entries from Computing that were about web design over to that new category. Today I realized I talk a lot about Blogging in general so I thought I’d make a new category for that and shift some of my old entries from Computing over to it.
As a result, I’ve moved a lot of crap out of the Computing category and into the Blogging and Web Design categories so if you notice that there’s a new category that suddenly has a lot of entries in it (some of which are quite old) now you’ll know why. This is one of those times I wish MT supported sub-categories as both Blogging and Web Design are natural sub-categories to Computing. There’s a plug-in available that adds this ability, but it requires hacking the MT code and I really hate having to do that.
Speaking of old entries, in undertaking this little shifting of stuff around I realized that I have a fair number of entries that are not only old, but also no longer all that relevant. My posting of the release of MT 2.6, for example, is hardly news anymore having happened over a year ago. The trend among bloggers seems to be to keep every entry they write, but I’m curious if this is actually the case.
Do any of you other bloggers ever go back through your archives and delete stuff that you don’t think is all that important anymore? Or do you just bump up to the next bigger hosting account when you start to run out of space?
SEB eats up over 100 MBs in disk space at this point (though that does include quite a few graphics over the years) and I’m teetering on either bumping up to the next sized account Blogomania offers for more room, finding a different host that offers more space for the money (though I’m very happy with Blogomania), or trying to clean out some of the older entries in SEB that don’t seem all that important anymore. I’d love to hear what others do when faced with a similar situation.
