I’m not the best housekeeper in the world, but I really stink at keeping my blogs cleaned out and sorted.
I suppose I now have a much better understanding of the phrase “intentional writing.”
I started one blog, years ago, and it was going pretty well. But then I wanted a second blog so I could separate the different types of writing that I do. I wanted the first blog to become more of a devotional blog, and the second blog would be my “everyday writing” blog. The problem was, I had created the two blogs using two different account names. Well, I finally got that figured out, and now have both of the blogs under “one roof,” and can now go through both of them, and clean out what doesn’t need to be in either.
However, I have a third blog that I really want to be about writing. It will contain all my short stories, articles, portions of novels, etc. And my thoughts about the writing process, and reactions to what others say about writing, and so forth. The problem is, I think there are short stories and thoughts about writing buried deep within the archives of the first two blogs.
So, what do I do? Do I take the time to really clean out the first blog, and make sure that no posts exist there except for the devotional posts? And do I just move all the posts that have something to do with writing from the first two blogs, and place them in the newest blog? Or do I just pick up and go from here, and leave everything where it has been for all these years?
It’s not like I have hundreds of blog posts. But there are more than fifty in one blog, and more than one hundred in the other blog. So, yeah. I don’t really know how to handle this.
All of this is so frustrating.
So, what say you, dear readers? What would you do? Sort out all the posts, and move them to better homes? Or leave them in the quickly built word apartments they currently reside in, and just built with more purpose from here on out?
I really would love your thoughts on this. So feel free to post.
