I wanted to keep snippets of everything as a child. As I got older and did not want to follow in the foot steps of Hoarders in my Family, I started throwing away most snippets and trying to clean up all the time. To me a blog is the ultimate answer to keeping snippets. You can keep all snippets forever with a picture on your blog. And unless you have picked a bad blog service or are posting something that hurts others, then your blog is going to be out there forever.
