I have found a great little free Blogger backup tool to back up Blogger blogs easily and fast.
Google’s Blogger blogs are great for getting information online fast, and you can add Adsense and Amazon affiliate links automatically. So most of us have a few, and some people have whole empires of them.
But the big downside with Blogger is that Google can knock out your empire on a whim. Even if you set up batches of blogs under several different Google account names (which you should), in the worst case scenario they can match them all up through your Adsense account or Amazon Associate details. Then what?
Well, then you start over … and it helps mightily if you have your blogs backed up. And it is now very easy, and free.
There are two things you need to do. First, go into the blog and download your template, if you made any changes to it. This option is on the Layout – Edit HTML tab.
Second, grab yourself this free Blogger backup tool to back up your posts:
It’s open source software so it’s free. You do have to enter your Google account details in the settings. It says it does not save your password – if you know anything about coding you can look at the code to check that.
Two important points:
1. After you enter your Google account details, don’t forget to
SAVE THE SETTINGS. You have to click on File to see the Save Settings option.
2. I found that the actual back up process did not work until I saved my settings, closed the tool and opened it again. After that it is very quick.
You can enter several different Google accounts and it will automatically retrieve all the Blogger blogs associated with those accounts. So you don’t have to enter individual blogs at all.
Great for people with Blogger empires and useful for those of us who just have a few blogs to backup with the free Blogger backup tool.
