SubstackInc is a Silicon Valley company, probably burning cash. Hopefully, it is not impacted by the $SIBV collapse, but you never know.

Thanks Arny. Backing up our work is never a bad idea.

You’re welcome!

Oooo I just did the same - cheers Arny. I did not even realise there was a function to export, though the downloaded files look like a hot mess and I would have a hard time replicating my posts somewhere else. Do you back yours up additionally to say, Beehiv?

@consumeowntech cheers Benjamin! Actually I have no idea how that file could be transferred, but at least I know is there!

Damn reading this today is so fascinating. Things looked really bad in those few hours. Good idea though Arnaldo. Thx for reminding us!

@rihardjarc You we welcome! Rihard! Agreed, the perception was very sour, I was actually scared of Substack potentially disappearing

It's nice that they give a one-click option. Presumably beehiiv has a similar feature?
