Discussion on: Where do you back-up your posts?

The markdown format is fantastic because it's freaking portable. I also like versioning both template and data in GIT.
You cannot completely trust your machine or even any external device. Hardware fails.

I would say one backup is not enough, but it's always better than 0. You have to replicate things. Of course, it should be automatic (e.g CRON jobs), but you have to use multiple backup strategies (at least 2) regularly if you want to be "sure".

I would add you have to make sure you can recover your data. It might seem obvious, but sometimes you get nasty surprises with archive formats.

I love MD since it's easy syntax plus highly supported and used in modern stacks 🔥🔥
