How to Backup Your Blogspot Blog

On my recent Entrecards drops, I noticed a few blogs hosted on Blogspot suddenly disappearing although apparently all these bloggers are active with a few blogs to their names. Then I noticed a post by one of the bloggers at her other blog which stated that Blogger had apparently DELETED her blog stating that it was a SPAM blog and even after numerous email, she still had not received any answer and her blog is still gone.

I am not here to question who is right or who is wrong but here’s a way to salvage your blog data should that happened.

TWO WORDS..

BACK UP!

 

.. and here’s how you do it in blogger/blogspot.

1. Go to your blog dashboard

2. Click on Settings>>Basic and you will see the the EXPORT link.

export or backup

 

3. Click on that and click on DOWNLOAD BLOG to somewhere safe on your hard drive. What this does is it will save your blog in a XML format that you can IMPORT back to another blogspot blog or use to import into another blogging platform, WordPress, while you decide your next course of action if and when this happens.

4. NOTE: This will ONLY back up your blog entries and comments.  It DOES NOT backup your template or your widgets.  To back up your template, you can do so from Design>>Edit HTML menu

Go get exporting/backing up NOW!

    5 of my blogspot blogs were deleted also by blogger.com. Blogger don't like so many outgoing links on your blog otherwise they will consider it spam blog. That's the reason why I switched to WP self-hosted blog I'm free to do whatever I like.

    Wow! this is really good, I will read carefully and Insha Allah will try to experiment and do it, if anything goes wrong, I will definitely cry SOS to you! I am quite brave experimenting other stuff but to be honest with you when come to my precious blog, I kind of scare to experiment the unknown, especially dealing with Template, scared I could mess up everything. I will read your instruction carefully step by step, write it down and then only will follow up accordingly. Will put up this links at FB, boleh kan?
