I just exported all my blog entries for the first time to create a local backup (since I’m going to attempt to upgrade to Movable Type 2.51, the latest version; right now I’m running 2.5, and apparently the latest version solves the problem I’ve been having with creating thumbnails of uploaded images).

Here’s the cool part: The exported file is in text format. I did a print preview in TextPad. From May 14, 2002 through December 4, 2002, I’ve written 114 pages of content. That rules. Albeit each entry has a number of header attributes (date, title, status, etc.), but the bulk of the file is stuff I’ve written. That’s nearly enough for a book.

That’s actually a thought I’ve had before: Maybe some day my as-of-yet non-existent children will want to read this life-in-progress history of their dad. Woah. That’s crazy. But cool.

Blog on.
