@colinwalker I’ve tried a setup like this, I even created a script which fed my Day One library into WordPress with images and everything. But at the end, I just don’t trust WordPress as a secure place for those posts.

I mean I store some really personal stuff in Day One which I can encrypt at least. There is no decent two factor authentication for WordPress, since the API still secured with username and password.

@zsbenke Thanks for the thoughts Zsolt, those are definitely valid concerns. I need to work out all the logistics and may not even end up using this but it’s something worth looking into.

@colinwalker Please share what you've found. I'm still trying to move away from Day One and my own blog looks a cool tool for a private journal. I just don't know how to secure it enough.
