I have over three years of blog posts on our website. There's a TON of stuff there...obviously! I have countless recipes, a lot of great, interesting info (or not)...basically, a lot of my writing that I don't want to just throw away!
So what do I do? Repost everything here eventually? I don't want to think about dealing with the three trillion pictures I've posted in the past three years! That would be like Chinese torture.
What is Chinese torture? It must be bad... Sort of like "rip." My dad will say "It's hot as RIP out there today!" Or, he might come in and say "It's cold as RIP out there today!" Rip is bad stuff, too.
Anyway, back to my train of thought, which momentarily derailed...what do I do with my archives? I can see a point in time, certainly not tomorrow or the next day, but somewhere out there, where our website will not be what it is now. Maybe I won't be able to link to an archives page and say "this is me a long time ago." Dave says I can save all of the writing in Wordpad or something, but I don't know about that. I'm thinking that maybe I should start over with recipes? In the past three years, recipes have played a huge part on my blog, with a lot of step-by-step pictures and a fair amount of wit thrown in, to taste. It's funny...when I search my own blog for some particular thing, I'll spend 30 minutes reading my on writing and laughing to myself, so much so that others in the house will ask what I'm reading. Is that weird or what?!
Maybe I will just start from the beginning and repost what I think deserves to be reposted. That sounds like such a huge job...
On a completely different subject, I got an email when a comment was posted. YAY!!! Maybe you don't know just how wonderful that is to me. With B2evolution, the program I've used for those three years, I get no email when someone says something. If someone left a comment on a post I wrote a few months ago, I'll never know it. It will be lost forever amongst the piles of spam I don't have time to wade through. But this....an email! Nice.
Ok, so any ideas on my archiving dilema?
P.S. Are there smiley faces on Blogger??? If there aren't any, I might just die and recall everything good I just said about it...I can't write without smilies! :-(
