Regardless of why you write a blog, but especially if it is as a memoir, all of your blog posts can disappear. There may be no rhyme or reason for them to do so, but you could be hacked and deleted or the data could get corrupted. All those hours, special moments, help, advice, gone in an instant.
How would you feel?
Well I, for one, would be devastated. There is a way to prevent such an occurrence happening, this tutorial shows you how to save every post you have written and keep it safe.
Part II - Backing up all your blog posts
Log into your blog, get to your dashboard then follow these instructions:
I hope you can find the time and inclination to do this, as I think of my blog as memoirs and would hate to lose the memory of the last 3 years of my life!
Having re-read that last bit it does sound a little odd. Firstly, it does save ALL your posts, but may/may not do so as just 1 file. Some months when I export my blog, it arrives as one file, other months it might be 2. I don't really know why, unless something happens during transfer. You don't need to divide anything up, just export it and rename what arrives. As long as you remember to leave the .xml on the end, you will be fine. I download once a month, into a new folder. When I am sure everything has downloaded safely, I delete the previous downloads.
