Save your blog with BlogBackupOnline

Save your blog's entries using BlogBackupOnline.

If you're the owner of a blog, there's a chance that, come one day, you might lose some or all of your posts. In order to avoid this, there's BlogBackupOnline, a free solution that will grab everything you've ever done and make a backup of it off site.

Registering your blog (or anyone else's for that matter) is easy, just give it the URL, and if the site is on a popular blogging platform like Blogger, TypePad, or WordPress, it will start backing up posts right away. You don't actually need to give it your login or password to get things going, BlogBackupOnline will simply go through and scrape posts. Once blogs have been registered with the service, backup is automated, so you don't have to worry about it.

Users get 50MB of storage, which might not sound like a lot, but keep in mind the tool is only grabbing text and HTML formatting code, not pictures, videos, or any other related files. If you do run out of space, (for now) the service is offering users extra room for people who hit the storage ceiling.

All posts are stored in a reader that lets you see a quick preview of what they look like, along with the option to send single or multiple posts back to your blog in the event your data is lost or corrupted. BlogBackupOnline also grabs user comments, so if there's a particularly interesting discussion thread, you can recover that too.

There are a few other ways to do blog back-ups. Backupmyblogprovides a similar service with a Web interface. Likewise, users of WordPress and TypePad can export their entire blog for backup up at any time, or use a handy plug-in that will send the backup to your e-mail in-box. BlogBackupOnline just takes the extra work out and does it for you.
