Decisions re: blogging

I've been reading through old blog posts, and I've come to the conclusion there's quite a few that I no longer want to be tied to. I am not the same person I was when I started this blog and there's a lot of crap on here I'd like to forget. So now I need to decide what to do about it...

Do I go back through and un-publish the posts that I want to erase and stick with this blog?

Do I abandon this blog altogether and move my most recent posts to a blog I am willing to be associated with (and has no embarrassing baggage)?

Do I continue with my pseudo-anonymous profile or go public as the "real" me (obviously once the baggage has been lost permanently)?

Waffle, waffle. Comments from the (non-existent) peanut gallery?

I also go back and edit sometimes - usually by saving something as a draft so that it's there if I want to see it, but others don't have access to it. I've also switched blogs entirely though, and made the former one accessible only to moi. I'm under no delusions about how exciting my life is to read about on the interweb, but I also picked an address that was too close to my actual name with the first blog.

I did go back through and "revert to draft" a good number of posts, as well as edit a handful of others. At some point I may do a second sweep to catch things I might've missed, but for now I do think I'll stick with this blog.

Thanks for the input. :-)

I have like ZERO traffic on my old blogs and blog posts, but I suppose if someone was out there searching, it could be an issue.
