Blog Archiving: Monthly – Pointless

December 29, 2004

in Blogging

On a slight tangent. Most of the blog programs I know have some form of archiving system. Usually by post, month and category. I’d just like to know how many have ever used the monthly archive to find a post. I think the answer is no and never. We use the blog search function, it is far quicker and more efficient. It also beats large categories too. So the real effectiveness in blogs is not in their archiving, in fact the longer you blog the more you discover that the categories you orginally created are worthless and you have too many posts to re categorize. That’s the problem again with a static rather than dynamic approach to the taxonomy.
