How to back up your pet business blog.

Whether you have a Google Blogger blog, or a Wordpress blog, backing up is a very important part of blog maintenance.

Here is how to back up a Blogger blog in three easy steps.

  2. Once that file is downloaded, go to your 'Design' tab and click on the 'Edit HTML' tab, then click on 'Download Full Template' which will back up the template part of your blog, also an .xml file.
  3. Save those files (and back them up) in a safe folder on your computer.
