# Why do I insist on keeping archives in my note apps? Months and months of posts, no matter how small or inconsequential; if it started life in a notes app it will invariably be archived. I always ensure I have the required folder structure in place as one of the first tasks when switching apps - it's habitual.

Part of me wonders if this propensity contributed to 'the crash', whether I was holding too much in One Jotter's database and caused it to become corrupted.

Almost everything I write (eventually) goes on the blog or in the muse-letter and is always available online so why do I always feel I need a permanent local copy? I never go back and refer to it; if I need to find something I'll search the blog.

The blog itself - and now with the addition of the Garden - is one big archive so why do I need another?

# And, to make matters worse, I've built an archive into the Garden itself.
