When I get home from work each day, I start cooking dinner and then I come to the computer and start going through the various groups and blogs that I visit on a regular basis to see what I missed that day, and because my blog is my start up page that is where I visit first.

A couple of nights ago I got home, did what I had to do and then sat down at the computer to start the rounds, started IE, and got to a lovely page, with a very nice purple template....but no blog entries! None of the links worked, or the archives...nothing.

After completely freaking out for a little while, I ended up restarting my computer and everything was okay again...PHEW!!! This little episode does, however, make me it possible to backup your blog if you are using Blogger's website, or do you just have to hope that nothing goes wrong?


  1. I would have had the same reaction as you!

    As for trying to back up your blogspot, I'm not quite sure. I'm not as computer savvy as I'd like tobe. ;o) But I just wanted to say good luck looking for the solution. Goodness knows what with all the ways computers can go nuts, we definitely need those back up plans!

  2. I'm not very computer savvy either!! And that's why I am asking really, just in case there is something I should be doing that I am not.

  3. I had the same problem one time. I don't really have my blog backed up now but it's the closest its going to get. I started saving all my entries onto a memory stick and I went into my blogger template and copied the html for that and saved it onto tht memory stick too. So the theory goes that if my blog for some odd reason decides to vanish I should have everything i need to get it back up and running and not really have of lost anything.

  4. I can't remember exactly but I believe I ran across instructions for backing up blog entries for Blogger while learning how to export them to WordPress. I think it's actually an export, only to a file not another blog program.

    I may have talked about it on Reader Network but can't remember that either. You could search the threads there if nothing else helps but I'd start with searching in Blogger help for backing up blog.
