How I'm organizing all my Historical Tidbits.

Some folks are wondering how to organize and collect all these tidbits before I remove them from blogger.
Below is an example of how I'm organizing. First, I copied all my posts and set them up by month and year. After that I started using the left bar of blogger and am in the process of working out year by year each of the posts.

1804 7 posts
Apr 12, 2010 Cane Ridge Revival (1801, Christian Camp Meetings, Places, Kentucky)
Oct 1, 2010 Louisana Territory (1805, 1806, 1809, Louisana, Travel)
Nov 10, 2010 Louisanna Purchase Significant Dates (1803, Timeline)
July 8, 2009 American Wars During the 19th Century (1803, 1812, 1815, 1817, 1835, 1846, 1861, American Wars, Houghtalings, Timeline)
Sept 11, 2009 Black Powder (history through the century) (1804, 1810, 1825, 1841, 1863, 1864, 1865, 1867, 1888, 1889, 1890, 1894, Weapons, Timelines)
June 1, 2009 Burr & Hamilton Duel (Dueling, People of Interest)
May 20, 2009 1804 Dexter Silver Dollar (Currency, Silver Dollar)

I'm doing all of to make more searchable and easier for the writer to locate the information they are looking for. Between the ( and ) is the list of how each post will be linked)

I hope this helps some of you. I'm hoping to opening my Research Website in the Fall. I'm still looking for the best software to handle the search and indexing features for this site.
