Old/outdated blog posts & their SEO value

I'm putting the finishing touches on my new website but am not sure what to do with my old blog posts. Most of those posts are from 2008 through to 2012. Not necessarily stuff I want to draw people's attention to any more, but I'm sure these pages have been and will remain good for my site's SEO. So I don't want to get rid of them, but am thinking of putting them in an "archived" directory (with 301 links from their old URLs, of course). Does that make sense? What would you do (or have you done if you've been in this situation)?

Thanks Kate.

Technical SEO question: Is having responsive web design the only way sites will pass Google's mobile-friendliness test? Or are there other ways to make existing WordPress websites pass the "mobile viewport" part of the test?

New Google Ranking Signal: Mobile-Friendliness

Is your website mobile-friendly? Google has just announced this will become a ranking signal from April 21st. (I'm glad my new, responsive website will be up before then.)
 
Two important #WebmasterNews announcements today:
1. Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal, meaning more #mobilefriendly sites in search results.
2. Starting today, we will begin to use information from indexed apps as a factor in ranking for signed-in users who have the app installed.

Husky cuddles in far north Sweden

Short video where I'm cuddling super affectionate Alaskan Huskies on a pit stop during our dog sledding adventure in Swedish Lapland last week. Awesome experience that I'll treasure forever.

Good, insightful post on ways to improve your Title tags that may help increase click-through rates from the search results. #SEO 
 
How to Improve Title Tag Click-Through Rate by 20%+
http://www.siegemedia.com/title-tags 

Make immediate impacts on your traffic by improving your title tags in a way that drives more clicks - without hurting rankings. This post shows you how. 
One of my favorite new actions for every new client we take on at Siege is analyzing title tags. There is still a glut of websites who are using 2005 title tag best practices, costing them significant profit in the process. Given what we know about over-optimization, Panda and the added potential that lower CTR could …

So, that much-hyped Netflix extravaganza Marco Polo that cost gazillions to produce? Sorry, but... zzzzzzzzz - couldn't hold my interest. Next!

I often read the first few lines of SEO email spam because it cracks me up. This one promises you "good amount of margin in your pocket". Sorry, my pockets are full, there's no room for your good amount of margin in there.:-)

Dancing, music-playing broccoli??  
That's what I thought when I saw the Google Doodle today. 
A mouse-over revealed it's St Patrick's Day. Ah, they're shamrock. 
Happy St Patrick's Day to everyone with Irish blood.

Can't wait to try this. Apprehensive (I've seen some funny/ridiculous Google Translate results...) but excited at the possibilities if this works well.
 
Google Translate App really takes it to the next level for practical uses when you travel. 
Google announced a serious update to their Google Translate app for both iOS and Android. The iOS app adds a lot more functionality, while the Android app has many improvements to functionality.(1) I

At first glance, I thought this 1670 museum piece praised the great talent needed for good content, but no, it means "a contented heart is a great good."
