Just a friendly reminder: Back up your blog!

Blogger has been extremely reliable, and I've never had a problem, but I would certainly hate losing all my posts and the associated comments if something ever did happen. Now that Blogger has the Export feature, it's so easy to do a quick backup. Just go to your Dashboard, then click Settings, and at the top you have the option to Import blog, Export blog, or Delete your blog. DO NOT delete your blog, that would be a bad thing! Do click the Export blog link, and then click the button to Download Blog. When your browser asks what you want to do with the file, Save it.

I'm trying to remember to back my blogs up every month, and I save the file with my blog name and the date - for instance, alwaysbcmom-06-01-2009. Since I was backing mine up, and the hardest part of this whole process is actually remembering to do it, I thought I'd remind you, too.


  1. Thanks for the reminder, it is something I forget to do all the time

  2. Man I can't remember the last time I backed mine up. Off to do it now. Thanks for reminding me! :o)


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
