We all know that it's important to take steps to back up files when working on a computer. Whether it's regarding a copy of digital photos, your resume, or your blog, we hear it all of the time: Be sure to back up files! Rather than waiting until something goes wrong (which is the method I've taken before with photos stored on my computer), I am going to make it a habit to back up my blog. If you are working on Blogger, the process is very easy. Follow these simple steps.
Open your Settings then go to the Other category. (Steps 1 and 2 highlighted in pink ovals above.) Then Click on Export blog (Step 3 highlighted by the pink arrow.)
You'll find this next screen once you click on Export Blog. Click on Download Blog.
Don't worry, nothing happens to your blog that is up and running on Blogger. It will still be here waiting for you after you back it up. I saved my files to a CD and plan to do so every week. I think making a habit of it will take a few weeks but hopefully it will become part of my weekly routine.
