Old posts - adding value to the archives

I'm wondering what the rest of the world things about old posts... so I came up with this Google query to find out

What I found was a total of 7 hits... which isn't much... so I must have worded it wrong... but the hits I did get seem to indicate that the main reason for leaving them around is to show up more often in search engines... which could very loosely be considered a proxy for value.

I'm interested in makeing this pile of posts into something other than more wasted disk space... that's why I'm adding labels (there's a list at the bottom of this blog) and trying to revisit things and add value.

Archives are important... and need to be nurtured. You don't prune them back, but you can tend them.
