So, I'm not going to migrate my blog at this time because I don't really have any confidence that WordPress or tumblr might not make the same arbitrary decision some day. And they might give me even less time to migrate my content. For all I know I could log in one day to find it all deleted. This incident has made me fairly distrustful of the ability of these content hosting services to radically alter their policies at any time.
Obviously I have backups of the images. Both locally and in my imagefap galleries. But my posts could easily be lost.
So as a precaution I am now going to make semi-regular backups of this blog content. I would recommend others do the same. Here is how:
- Go to Google Takeout.
- Click "Select None"
- Now reselect only "Blogger" for your posts and "Google Photos" for your images
- Click "Next" and accept the default options for type and delivery by clicking "Create Archive".
- Download your archive and keep it safe.
Good luck out there folks.
