Attention Blogspot Bloggers: How To Make a Back-Up Copy of Your Blog For Safekeeping

Blogger Sign In Page

Google Blogger users (and everyone else) should make a back-up copy of their blog for safekeeping. This is in case Google decides to take down your blog for the wrong reason (they are known to do this), or if you accidentally trash your blog.

It is very easy to do.

1. Sign into your blog (above)

2. Go to your design page. You will see the following list.

3. Select "other".

4. Then select Export blog and download blog.

5. You will end up with an XML file that looks something like this. Hold on to it. 

I do this every three months or so. It is a good safety precaution. Better safe than sorry!
