Listening to the voices...
Good reminder. I once almost lost my blog when changing to a template I found on the net. Just about gave me a heart attack!Angela @ The Bookshelf Muse
Crap! I've never backed up my blog - will do so today.
Thanks Clarrisa! So nice to have that as a back-up. I'm off to look for a helpful blogger award.
Thanks for the reminder to back up your blog! I haven't done it yet--I really should in case something bad happens.
My Sunday routine. God Post though! :)Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow
So helpful! Thanks, Clarrisa!
OMG, how did she manage to lose her blog??? Sounds super scary :(
Awwww poor Ann!! But she's a fighter and a very determined woman and has done really really well to save her blog and get her followers back!! Yay!!THANK YOU so much Clarissa for this handy way of saving one's blog!! Double yay!! Take carex
thanks for the reminder. i backed up all 15 (some belong to my kids, one's my website...). i'll link to this from my blog to remind my blogging friends. btw, i love your blurb above the comments. i do the same thing. :)
I feel so sorry for Ann! I hope she gets all her followers back and more! I'll save both my blogs right now, I would be crushed if I lost my blog:( Thanks for this, Clarissa! You're always so helpful!
Clarissa - This is really, really useful!! Thank you. In fact, I'll keep this comment short so I can go do that right now.
Very good. I'll definitely do this. Thanks for sharing >:) Cold As Heaven
Thank you for this! I just exported my blog now - I never would have thought to do that on my own.
This is fantastic ... Thank you so much! I was having problems earlier with my blog for signing in. I panicked because I couldn't post or leave comments. It took me a few hours to figure it out. I can just imagine if it wiped out, I'd freak! Have a great day.Michael
Thanks for the reminder! I also accidentally deleted an old blog -- and am very glad it isn't the current one. I am definitely exporting it more frequently now.
I did not know this. Thanks for the tip. I'd be a mess if I ever lost my blog.
Blogger can be such a problem sometimes. Thank you so much for the step-by-step instructions. I will go do this immediately.NancyN. R. Williams, fantasy author
Thank you so much for this advice. I had no idea about backing up my blog and I am so sorry for Ann Best losing her blog, and so relieved that she managed to recover most of it.
Wow. Poor Ann. I had no idea how to back up a blog, so thanks bunches!
That is such good advice. I back mine up every time I think about it, but I've never emailed it to myself. Until now that is...
Thanks for this useful and important information. I followed your advice and sent a message to myself with all that info. Am so sorry to hear about Ann Best losing all!MontiMaryMontagueSikes
It would be a sad thing to lose mine. I have over two years work and my heart poured into many posts.Thanks.
You are a wealth of information, thank you.I tried to change my comment widget last week and for a moment thought I lost all my comments etc, I posted a OMG Help on my blog I was almost in tears, lol, I can laugh now.
Dez, she was fiddling with the HTML and something happened. She was able to salvage a lot but in the end, had to make a new one. I'm glad everyone found this so usefulCD
thanks Clarissa, this is very helpful info. I once had a diskette of my poetry that somehow became corrupted, and unreadable. Devestation! Thank god for hard copy.
Very helpful advice. Something I will definitely do now. Thanks.MasonThoughts in Progress
Great tip, have done it now - something I never even thought of :ORach
It's a scary thought to lose a blog.Thanks for showing us how to do that. I wasn't aware of the feature.
Thank you! I've been wondering how to do that...too scared to just randomly hack through it. :)
I've had nightmares waking up to find my blog has been deleted off the planet somehow. Scary. Now I can sleep like a baby. Thank you Clarissa.
I love having geek-friends. :)Actually, my son Lazy backed up my blog when he re-vamped it. But, it's probably a good thing to do again. When it comes to backups for electronics, I don't believe in over kill.Thanks.........dhole
Clarissa, that's a great idea that I hadn't even thought of doing. Thanks! Hope you don't mind but I'm going to post about it and put a link to your blog. :-)
Thanks to David's blog post, I've been directed here - thanks for this valuable info! Just 'saved' my blog - and 'tweeted' the link, too!
OMG!! Lost her blog? That's awful...With as much work as we put into these, that just seems too much.Thank you for the tip on how to save mine. I will do that this afternoon!MicheleSouthernCityMysteries
Thanks for the tip! I need to do this.
I need to remember to do this every week. Thanks!
Glad you posted this. Off to tweet your link and then add you to my reader. I found you through NR Williams.
Thank you! I'd been wondering about this since hearing Ann's story. I would freak for sure if it happened to me.
Hey! Thanks for this! I periodically fear such things...
Terrific reminder. Thanks!Lisa ~ YA Literature Lover
Nice. Great advice. :)
Def. gonna do it this week.
I didn't know I could do that. Thanks, Clarissa!
Gold star Clarissa. Thank you!
Criminy. I did it once, and then never again. Thanks for the reminder!
WAY cool, thanks for the tip! I didn't even know things like that could happen--yikes. It's nice to have a file/record of all my posts, anyway. Very handy, thank you.
Thank you for the useful tip. I recently switched to a non blogger template and had a huge scare when I thought that my entire blog content vanished. Thankfully I was able to restore it, but this is a far better way to go.
Thanks so much for the info. I'm all backed up now!
Thanks Clarissa, got to this post from Rach _ I lost my company blog and now just got error 404 for this one, my heart stood. Ok i'm still breathing I know...lol
Wow. Never knew it was that easy.Thanks :)
Thank you for posting these easy directions! Very helpful.The Write Soil
Thanks for this! Just backed up. Cannot imagine anything worse than losing my blog.
Thanks so much for this post!! Hopefully it will never be needed, but so glad I did it, and now know how!
I never knew this was possible. Thanks for the great advice.
If you don't have anything nice to say, say it anyway.
