How to easily Backup your Blogger Blog Online for Free?

Yes, you can now Backup your Blog hosted on Blogger for free.

Well, it is always a good practice to Backup your online assets like e-mail, photos, etc - and blogs can't be an exception. There are numerous plugins available on other Blogging platforms like Wordpress / Mamboo (yes it is gaining popularity in blogs too) / Movable Type to backup all the contents of the blog at regular intervals. But till now there was no Free service available for blogs hosted on Blogger.com.

Today, I came across this cool website called BlogBackupr, which provides an absolutely FREE service of backing up blogs on the Blogger platform. But I suppose, since it is still in beta stage - there is no complete backup available yet. Coz only 25 posts from my site got backed up, as against the 700+ posts that are available on my blog.

BlogBackupr is an online application that only needs a URL to create the full backing of any blog using feeds. It does not require a lengthy registration but needs your e-mail address so that you have access to a panel where you can see your backups. You can download back the backups in three formats (xml, txt and html), and even restore your blog if you have any problems.

The restoration feature works fine for Wordpress blogs and surprisingly also for blogs on Blogger. Well, I guess the restoration for Blogger is a novelty and is also a unique feature, that I know of that lets you do it automatically.

It's a great tool for blogs that do not provide a system backup / restore themselves.
