Happy New Year 2010

Year 2009 is going to end, many important things in the year 2009 and I will never forget the memories in the year 2009.

Hopefully later in the year 2010, life will be better than in 2009. Lots of important moments that occurred in 2009, like my marriage, my first software, and many important events that really changed my life path.

Sometimes I ask myself "Is everything had gone as I expected? And what should I improve and I get next year?", maybe it was the questions that now many people think.

I always thank God for giving me life like now.

Happy New Year!!

Backing up your blog on Blogger

There are times when certain things do not go as we expect, this could also happen to your blog. The articles we have made with difficulty could be lost due to server errors or other causes which we do not expect before.

In Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, we find a database that stores all data from a website or blog, and we just backup the database to backup data such as articles and other configurations.

What if I use Blogger as my blogging platform? Is there a way to backup all the articles on my blog?

The answers to the above questions is "Of course you can do it". Here's how to backup your blog if you use Blogger:
  • Going to "Dasboard" in your profile on Blogger.
  • Click "Settings" on the blog you want to backup.
  • In the "Basic" settings, click "Export blog" link.
  • Click the "Download Blog" link.
  • You can save a formatted xml file wherever you like and click "Save".
If something is happening with your blog, you can import the files you have downloaded earlier, and all articles will be back as when you backup your blog.
