I keep hearing some horror stories about bloggers loosing their entire blog, or maybe Google took it down for whatever reason and my heart just stops for these bloggers. I can't imagine going through the stress of trying to get the info back. So I set out to try and find out how I could save my blog and all it's contents if for some strange reason it wasn't there anymore. Sniff Sniff, let's not even think about that. :(
These steps are super easy. These steps are for those with a Blogger account, I am sorry I don't know about Wordpress. Here is the quick 5 Step Process.
The first place you want to go is in your Dashboard under SETTINGS.
Under the SETTINGS tap you will see OTHER, click on that.
This screen pops up and you will choose EXPORT BLOG
Once you click the button you will see a pop up, click DOWNLOAD BLOG
Once you hit that, it will create a file in your downloads. Mine looks like this. Each time it downloads it date stamps it so you know if you have the latest content of your blog. Now it's saved in a nice little file. But I take one step extra and I copy this file and save it to an external hard drive. Just in case something happened to my computer I have my basis covered.
And there you have it- pretty simple and pretty quick. I try to back it up each week. It's so important and hardly takes any time at all.
I hope this was helpful!
