How to take Backup of your Blogger Blog and Template


Google Blogger is one of the top free Blogging Platform available. Free means it won't tell you to pay for hosting your blog and as it's Google product we know we won't get security/hacking issues any day. But, Still we should take regular backup of our blogs.

As Google is free Blogging platform but it comes with some limitation. Limitation like Google owns the control to your blog.  This simply means that Google owns the right to delete your blog at any point of time.

Google do that mostly when you are using your blog for spamming or any other activities that violets Google BlogSpot TOS. So, I keep suggesting people that if you can afford paid hosting plans you can go for self hosted WordPress Blog.

So, one thing you can do to retain from the loss at anytime is taking a periodic backup of your Blogger Blog. I guess the definition or meaning of backup is pretty clear to all. So, taking backup of your Blog can let you restore your data and posts if something wrong happens in the future. I suggest people to take backup of your Blogs atleast once in a week.
