Backup Your Blog!

To all my fellow Bloggers out there, I can't stress the importance of backing up your blog posts. There's a million sob stories about bloggers (some with +1500 followers even) logging into their Blogspot dashboard one day and -poof- ALL OF THEIR POSTS HAVE BEEN DELETED.

I'm not sure how/why Blogger.com randomly destroys blogs like like that sometimes, or if it even matters.

Click Here for a quick YouTube video on how to do it. It literally took me less than 45 seconds to do the entire process.

Even if you're not an avid Blogger. It is still healthy to have your blog backed up, just in case.

 I'll get off of my soapbox now. Enjoy the lil' pics :)



  1. Cogito, preach brother. I lost about six months of my past blog, the original Confessions of a Downlow Brother, because I didn't back it up regularly.

    One day I logged on and it was gone. Blogspot customer service sucks -- you never talk or email a real person. All you get are FAQs.

    I was so discouraged I almost gave up blogging. Then I decided to move to Wordpress, which is a much more stable platform (so far so good).

    Fortunately most of my old blog was preserved but there are blog posts I will never get back. And to add insult to injury somebody hijacked my old blogspot address and posted bullshit.

    Any way alls well that ends well. My readership is back up to old levels (200 to 300 readers a day -- which is pretty good for a personal blog).

    And I have reconnected with bloggers I follow and admire like you Cogito.

    Have a great day and thanks for passing on good advice.


  2. How do I backup my blog with the new blogger interface?
