Blog Baby Blog Week 2: Back Up All the Things

Well, hello there! I'm back with Week 2 of Blog Baby Blog.  If you missed Week 1 on using a free watermarking app, you can catch up here.  Or not.  No pressure.
Last week's post was fun and happy.  There was watermarking and even a circus dog.  This week we're talking Doomsday.  I'm hoping you'll complete all three steps of this tutorial because that will pretty much ensure that you'll never need them.  Because that's how life works.

If you are thinking, I've backed up my template, I'm good.  Well good for you, but that's actually the easiest one to fix.

You can always get a new blog design.  You cannot get your posts or photos back.  Do I have your attention now?  Thank you.

Backing up your blog: ALL THREE PARTS {Template, Photos, Content}

**Before starting the backing up process, create a folder somewhere to keep all this doomsday material.  (And when you're done, copy that folder and save it somewhere else not on your computer.)**

Step 1: Back up your template. (This is your HTML coding.)

•Go to Template

•Click on Backup/Restore

•Click on Download Full Template

•Drag this file to your very special folder
That wasn't so bad, was it?

Step 2 and 3: You can save your photos and posts at the same time.

•From Google, go to my account.

•Click on “Control Your Content”

•Click on “Create Archive”

•Every Google program is selected, so click on “Select None” first.
•Click on the boxes for Blogger and Google Photos
**If you have multiple blogs, you can click on “All Blogs” to select the one you want to back up.  Same goes for Photos.  I created separate folders for different blogs, but it’s up to you.

•Scroll down and click on “Next”

•Click on “Create Archive”

•Download your file and save it in that special place.  **Depending on how large your files are, the download may be available right away, or they’ll email you when it’s finished.

I hope you never need this, but better safe than sorry!
