Backup Your Blog

You've invested time, effort and brainpower into building your blog. It would count as a catastrophe to suddenly lose it all due to a technological glitch or human error. That's why backups are important. If you have a blogger account like me, you already know that there is no backup feature. So here is a solution I stumbled upon -- BlogBackupOnline.

It is really easy. All you have to do is create an account (50MB free) and then register your blog(s). Then you can make a full backup. You can also schedule automatic daily backups. With the backup, you can download it to your hdd in the form of RSS 2.0 format. Not just your blog entries are backed up but also your comments and embedded images. This feature is also useful if you want to move your blog somewhere else.

At the moment, BlogBackupOnline supports the following platforms:
Blogger, WordPress, TypePad, Friendster, LiveJournal, Serendipity, Windows Live Space, Movable Type, Terapad, Vox, and Multiply.

Okay, this is my good deed for today. This is NOT a sponsored post but a community message from Mamas Bag of Tricks. Hahahaha.
