Do. This. Now.

Have you ever backed up your blog?
No?  Me either, until now.
Do this right now, before you forget.

(instructions are under the image)

These instructions are for Blogger.

~ Go to your Blogger dashboard,
~ click on Settings ...1
~ then click on Other ...
~ then scroll down & click on Export Blog ...3

~ It will then ask you where to save it & voila, it's saved... backed up.
Good work.

Do this right now & schedule yourself to do it weekly or fortnightly or monthly depending on how much you post. (pop a note in your diary)

Oh & if you have the old Blogger interface, go to the Blogger dashboard, click the Settings tab, then next to choose Export Blog under Blog Tools.

Right, so you've been doing this as you read it right? Good.
Leave me a comment to let me know you've done it and if it works for you.

Remember, you need to back-up work, because sometimes thing go wrong & one day, you may log on & it's gone, gone for good & that would make you cry. And I don't want you to cry, I want you to save those tears for something else.
Back-up your work!

And whilst you're on it, back-up your photos & files too!

Be a good Blogger & not a booger!


  1. I did it Miss. Can i have a god star now? :)

  2. Thanks for the tip, I've just backed up my blog.

  3. I did it. Good thinking.. and definetly not something I thought about before your post. Thanks!!

  4. Yup, I did it--thanks for the assignment! It downloaded a file to my harddrive. I put it a "My Weblogs
    Posts" folder in "Documents". That way it will be backed up to Carbonite also, so I should be safe. Thanks!

  5. Done! Thanks so much for letting me know how to back it up! I would hate to lose all of my posts.


  6. Thanks for the reminder ... I've been meaning to do this for AGES!!

  7. Never knew you could! Thank you so much for mentioning it! :)
    Have a crafty-wonderful day!

  8. Thanks for the how to, that's something I've been meaning to do for a long time. It didn't ask me to save it in Safari, so I tried in Firefox and it did there.

  9. I'm going to do it now.

    I have had a question niggling me for a while, do I need to back up the blog photos separately as well, or is it enough that they are backed up in the blog back up? Arghh... What do you think?

  10. That's a good question... in theory, the photos are a part of the blog, so it should be saved as a part of it automatically. But in real life, I don't really know. I know I save all my photos to an external hard-drive.. just in case anyway!
    Cheers, Rie
