Having blogged for over five years now, I’ve amassed a considerable body of archives, both here and here (pre 11/2004). But does anyone read archives? With so much currently available information, do blog readers ever re-visit the past?
I don’t want my older posts to fall into obscurity, so please let me know (1) whether you read archives and (2) in what situations you tend to read them. Also, let me know how you use blog archives – do you use the search tools at a blog to locate past posts of interest or sit down and read through past posts by topic or date? Please post your results in the comment section below — and I’ll try to do a follow up on this issue. And if you’ve already written about this topic, send me the link!
