back to basics | back up your blog

When did you last back up your blog? Did you know it's really easy to do in blogger?

First, click settings, then other.

Then the very first item on the list is blog tools - click export blog.

This window will pop up, click download blog.

And then click save file {ok}. Your file is now wherever your computer downloads files to, now you can move it to wherever you need it (I have a folder in my documents for all things blog-related.) As you can see, the file is dated, so you'll always know when you downloaded it.

If you ever need to put the file back, on the same or another blog, you just click the import blog button, find the file and off you go.

I'm still trying to figure out how to backup wordpress blogs, I'll add it when I've got it.


  1. Great advice, I should probably back up mine more often.

  2. Awesome! I'm sharing your blog post today on my blog! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank you for sharing. I am seriously considering starting a Blog of my own. Do you prefer Blogger over Word Press? I've also seen Typepad. I'm not sure which to use or where to even start. Thanks for your feedback :)

  4. I'm with wordpress and have a backup plug in, but I also copy my blog posts to word and back up on the cloud. (OCD!)

  5. Something that everyone should remember! Thanks for Rewinding!


Thanks for leaving a comment!
