My website is closing in on 17,000 posts (this one will make it 16,998), so I was looking at the gargantuan size of my database. When you’ve got this many posts and 17,160 comments, I’m thinking that just my Akismet (anti-spam) meta data is somehow actually larger in size than some people’s  entire blogs. I’ve backed it all up and am going through and cleaning out some unused digital exhaust to give me some room to grow.

Who knew that in owning your own data you could accumulate so much of it?!
