Sending WAN IP address to FTP server

Hey guys, I have an IP thats not static, and I want to host some tiny things on it. I already have everything set up, the one other thing that I thought would be possible is to set some kind of application to automatically send my current WAN (external) IP address to an FTP server, maybe every half an hour or so. (my ISP offers me a little space) That way, I can just go the FTP server my ISP offers me, and that would tell me the IP I would need to go to to get to my PC.
