I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been totally lost for hours looking in old posts on all the blogs of said Typosphere, but when you're looking for something specific it's difficult. Is there any way we could make a searchable archive of all the posts from all our blogs - so we can search with ease? I haven't had much experience with Google Custom Searches, but surely they would be powerful enough to search the URLs of the blogs of the Typosphere, bring up the relevant posts to our queries.
Just a little idea, really, that would make the constant typewriter information unearthed easy to find again.
My reply was:
I don't know of a way to make a massive searchable archive. One thing you can try is limiting your Google search by adding site:blogspot.com -- this will search only Blogger blogs. Of course, that includes lots of non-typewriter blogs, and excludes typospherians using other platforms (Wordpress, etc.).
Another problem is that typecasts aren't searchable. I try to make up for this to some extent by adding labels to my posts, but I'm sure there are many items on my blog that are very hard to find because they are in non-searchable typecasts and my titles aren't revealing.
Can anyone help with this technical question? Any suggestions?
