This is a question about patience and photos on the web, namely - how many photos are too many?

I'm having problems editing my photos down to a reasonable number, even after setting them aside for a year (or more). I'm wondering how many photos on a website is enough to make you happy. Consider if you will, three main categories of photo viewing:
1) Photos of relatives/friends, near or far away. For example, "Here are photos of our new house/baby/dog/scars/etc!"
2) Photos you stumble into by looking for something. For example, "I love bridges and here's a site with photos of bridges!"
3) A site you follow as a cool link from someone or some site. For example, "Man, this guy takes weeeeird photos! Go look at his site!"
Naturally, not everyone is exclamation-point-excited about photography, but what would be your limits as to the number of photos before you get bored and move on.
Also, I'm just talking numbers here, so imagine the site has the perfect navigation system, no annoying music or pop-ups, different styles or categories of photos grouped into their own galleries, etc. I'm just looking for a number to help force myself to edit how many photos I'm putting out there.
