I can understand wanting to archive content that you don’t plan to look at again. I have something of an “archive” with articles I download to markdown.
My thought process is that I take these articles and made notes from them. I won’t reference the article itself normally, but I’d still like to have the original for whatever reason.
This is just a folder called “Articles”- So I’ll download an article to markdown, save it to my main directory, link to the notes that I make, and then put the article into the Articles folder.
I’m not sure if I’d archive my notes though, it’s hard to imagine looking at something and thinking “I will never look at this ever again.” But I also haven’t had an issue where the amount of notes I have gets in the way of searching for something.
