I made a IFTTT rule today to make a text backup of my posts here into a Dropbox folder. Tumblr doesn’t support any mechanism for this.

At some point in the future IFTTT or someone else might support importing such text files, if I ever needed to move off (gasp) Tumblr. Although if Tumblr got involved in an Instagram-like mess, I bet specialized tools would pop up to migrate.

I’m already backing up Instagram posts (moot, now that I’ve switched to Flickr), and Buffer traffic.

[Update: 3:29pm – Recipe never triggers. I have a support email in to IFTTT.]
