I haven't deleted posts in which I've cast myself in a less than favorable light though; I have that label called I'm Only Human, after all. What I've done is edit my posts for grammar, overall readability, and relevance. Those which I've deleted altogether were mostly pointless, whiny, unkind, or simply redundant. How many times can you read, "I'm tired of this crap!" before you want to comment, "Then change it!"? Trolls who have accused me in the past of only posting entries that make me look good, or perpetrate a favorable image, obviously have not read this blog enough to make that claim. And even if I do, what's the problem? I also wear makeup and a well-fitted bra when I go out. But then, when did the barmy accusations of internet trolls ever matter anyway? Enough of them, though. They're worth neither the space nor the consideration.
I've merged some labels. Why have both "Health" and "Thyroidzilla"? A lot of those hit the cutting room floor anyway. "Travel" and "Armchair Circumnavigator" were married as well, and so on.
Whilst doing all this spring cleaning, I discovered the following stats:
- Most Accessed Entry: "101 Christmas Gifts Under $10" = 4,029
- Most Commented: "Go Home" = 31*
- Most Google+ Referrals: "The Folkie Never Dies" = 224,851
*Well, crap. I just went through the comments and discovered Blogger had doubled some of them and attributed the doubles to me, so I deleted those. There's no way I'm going through 3000+ posts again to find out which one got the most comments.
