Yesterday, saw microblogging site “Tumblr,” go down, not just for a few hours but for the whole day. At first the homepage went down and as PCMag.com said, with user numbers increasing every day totalling to 500 million page views every month, new and current users to the site were met with error messages ending up with the whole site going down. Whilst no-body actually knew what was going on, it is probably fair to say that a number of you would have been panicking over lost content.
So, if anything has come out of yesterday, it must be the fact that your content needs to be backed up safely. Although assurances came from Tumblr’s President “John Maloney,” and Founder “David Karp,” who said that the site cares just as much about your work as you do, and that they have a more than capable team working on it, I’m sure you will agree there’s no better satisfaction than knowing yourself that you have safeguarded your blogs.
After digesting this, Mashable has reported on a simple backup app that can be transferred to HTML files, or onto a CD and so on, details of this can be accessed via Mashable.
