Organizing - Back Up Your Blogger Blog

This thought never occurred to me until I was reading about some other tips and techniques on blogging today. What would you do if something happened to the blogger (blogspot) network and our blogs we have been working on suddenly disappeared.

Think of it, all that content, hours of time spent brainstorming, researching... all of it GONE. Ok... don't think about it too long because I don't want you to go into a panic. :-)

If you use blogger (blogspot) it's VERY SIMPLE to back up your blog and save a copy to your computer.  In your blogger DASHBOARD go to SETTINGS and then EXPORT BLOG.

On the next page click on DOWNLOAD BLOG.

From there you'll be able to save a file to your hard drive that contains all your posts and comments. It might be a good idea to do this weekly or monthy depending on how much you blog.

So there you have it, easy peasy... right?

Have a great week!
