My Blog Was Deleted! Why and How to Back up Our Blog Posts

My blog was deleted! this is the worst case scenario of any blogger. Especially those who are in free hosting companies including the blogspot blogs. You're work is not totally yours. Anytime they want to remove your blog they can do so.

Even if you are not doing anything against their term of service. There are some free hosting companies that will not give any warning or announcement that they are moving away. I have a friend a self hosted blogger that is blogging for almost 1 and half years in a free hosting company. He is taking back up once in a while, but it did happen that he forget to back up for the last 3 months. When the company close their free hosting all of his write ups for the last 3 months was lost. So for you guys that is not yet experiencing it. Be warned for that take back up regularly.

We spent sleepless nights just to come up with a great post then one day our years of hard work will just be gone!

In this posts I will tackle why and how we should take backup of our blog posts and data.

You may lost all your data at once.If you are in self hosted sites there are programs that offers automatic backup but if your hosting doesn't allow it you should take manual back up.
