Having Drafts act as my conduit into Micro.blog makes me wonder if there is a way for it to act as a way out as well.

@kaa I used to have an action that exported my mentions so there is a certain amount you can get from the API, not sure if it would extend as far as you'd like though.

@kaa Would you share the Drafts Action(s) you use? I used it for micro.blog for a while, but eventually my Actions began to break apart and I never rebuilt them.

@Mtt So far I'm only using the default post to Micro.blog, which you can get here: actions.getdrafts.com/a/1Dj

I seriously don't understand what magic is happening here, but posting using this action is faster than ANY other method available. It's near instant and shows up on the site just as fast. This is what's made me pine for more. There has to be more we can do with Drafts and Micro.blog...

@colinwalker do you know if you can import the standard export from Micro.blog into Drafts? That would be a start to having your posts in a single location that's not the web.

@kaa I wish there was a way to choose categories. A while back I saw someone share an Action that was supposed to do that, but I could never get it to work properly.

@kaa The export is JSON isn't it? I would imagine it would involve writing an action to parse the JSON and create new drafts for each item. There's no import as such.
