Does anyone know how to create a backup for an entire blog?
If you have a blog, I am sure that its contents are very precious to you. Afterall its a collection of your thoughts and observations at certain points in your life. So how do you create a proper backup of your entire blog?
If you're using blogger, there is a page which shows you how to do it here. But it sounds pretty complicated to me. I'm too lazy to try.
Previously I did not do any backup for my blog because I didn't know how. Then kind twinsmom taught me to key-in (File - Save As - "Filename") to backup my archives into my PC and so I hurriedly did it afraid that my blog would get hacked or something would go wrong and all my thoughts and blog entries would go Poof! up into smoke. The only problem is I have to do it every month. (You can also do a monthly archive backup by converting your url into pdf format using this HTMLDOC PDF-o-matic )
I found this tool BlogCollector which is supposed to turn your blog into a book. However the free version has its limitations. My blog has now been turned into a book in pdf format. It has 329 pages altogether with a cover, 15 pages of content and 308 blog posts but here's the catch:
- It takes a while to download
- Only 83 pages were fully captured (ie 63 of my latest posts, the rest contained titles and dates only)
- It converts into text only. No images or hyperlinks included.
Sorry, can't share my pdf "book" here as I don't know how to put in a link for that. I understand that one can also convert an entire blog into pdf using Adobe 7 but don't know how to do that as well or you can copy your entire weblog into your harddrive by using this website copier but I hate to download more stuff into my pc.
Aarrrgh... so I still have yet to find a solution to backup my blog. Have to stick to the (File-Save As-"filename") for now. Can anyone share with me how they do backups for their blogs? (especially those using hosting services like Blogger, maybe those with their own domain has a backup system in place)
