BlogSpot is one of the top free blogging platform but it comes with many limitations. One of the biggest limitation is, Google owns the control of your blog. Google owns the right to delete your blog at any point of time. This usually comes when you are using your blog for spamming or for any other activities which violates BlogSpot TOS. Probably that’s one of the reason, I keep suggesting people to go for self hosted WordPress blog.
One thing which you can do apart from following BlogSpot guideline is taking a periodic backup of your BlogSpot blog. This will ensure that if something goes wrong with your blog in future, you can always restore your data and posts.
How To Taking backup of Your BlogSpot blog
Any BlogSpot blogger can take a complete backup of blogspot posts, comments by using export feature of BlogSpot blog. Backup will be done in the format of .xml format, and you can store it on your local desktop or cloud like google drive and dropbox to prevent loss of file. Unfortunately, this is more of a manual process, and depending upon how often you update your blog, you should take backup weekly or monthly.
A good idea is to take a backup of your customized blogSpot template at regular interval. This will solve two major problem:
- If your blog get deleted, you will have a complete back up of your theme.
- If anytime, while playing with template code, you made some blunder, you can quickly restore the template from your backup files.
I also advice you to keep the backup files either on Google regularly, for you to take your off unexspent loss of post and your customization .
