How to Backup Blogspot Blog Using Blogger Export Feature

Have you ever worried about the safety of your blogger blog ? As long as you write your blog with the right spirit, it is safe in Google server. They delete a blog from their server only if the blogger team find it is spamming. So theoretically every useful blogs are safe with Google. However, it is better you have the backup of your work on your computer to make sure it is cent percent safe. Though Google (Google owns blogger ) is a reliable company, it cannot guarantee cent percent safety for your content and hard work. So I highly recommend to take backups often to counter any unexpected deletion of blogs from their server. Blogger has a feature to export the blog saved in their server. We can use this  feature to take the backup.

How to Export Your Blogspot Blog From Blogger
  1. Logon to blogger account

  2. Click on Settings
    Export database

  3. Click on Other
    backup your blogspot site

  4. Click on Export blog link
    Blogger backup

It is very easy to take entire backup of a blogspot blog to a computer. I strongly recommend you to export blogspot site often including images to your computer. So you won't need to worry in case if Google changes its policy in future. You are safe with your content because you have the backup. It is important to have a backup of all images you have uploaded to a server. I learned it from my experience because I had been using imageshack to upload pictures but later they discontinued their service. Unless I pay for the service offered by them, they won't keep the pictures I had uploaded to imageshack server. I lost some of my pictures but couldn't hit me hard because I have the backup.
