I plan on doing the same thing with time machine. But I'm getting a flash drive because:
1) It's never a bad idea to have your notes backed up in more than one place
2) Then when I want to access my notes from some other computer, I don't have to always email myself an updated copy or worry that I forgot to email them to myself. It will all be there in my portable flash drive.
They aren't that expensive and I could see them being helpful when your on the go, unlike the external harddrive which is just at your house.
