Nothing in this world is for granted. There is always that .01% chance the database or your profile might get hacked and so on.
Some of the options that might save your content include:
- Creating and saving blog posts locally using markdown or code editors/IDEs. Ideally backing them up in some external drives.
- Pushing them to GitHub repo/-s where you store your articles
- Syncing local files to Google Drive, Dropbox and others
- Creating posts on the blogging platform itself and using back-up methods provided by them
When it comes to last one, currently DEV.to offers export content feature in settings. You can export your posts and comments. They will be emailed to your inbox.
Where do you back-up your posts currently (if you do) and what would be the ideal way you would recommend for DEV to implement?
