Something you really need to do

After the problems of the last few days, it has become very clear that backing things up is not only desirable, it is an imperative.  It has also been explained to me that it is indeed possible to actually back up your blog posts and your blog.

The wonderful and amazing Anne from My Blethering Blog has just published a tutorial in her post about how to do this.  There are also some tips in the comments of my last two posts from various wonderful bloggers.  You can find them here and here.

My advice?  Hot foot it over to Anne's and see her tutorial and follow her advice!  Now!  The tutorial is here.  Go, now, do as she says!

Thank you Anne for such great advice!!  You are a star!

I am still working on my blog repairs, I took most of the day off today from my blog and e-mails, although I was just having a quick peruse and spotted Anne's post, so I had to share it straight away for those who don't already follow her.

So, I might not be commenting much, but I am trying to catch up on my reading, and I am also behind on my e-mails and replies.  Please bear with me!  It is all taking a long time....

A new month begins tomorrow and hopefully spring will follow very soon, at least as far as the weather goes.  We have finally had a small sprinkling of snow on Thursday and this morning, but I am hoping that doesn't mean that winter is planning on settling in!

Hope you are all having a good weekend. 

Amy

  7. That's useful. I managed to backup my blog yesterday but couldn't understand how to get it back if I needed to . Now I see all I have to do is to import it. Makes sense really!!

  16. I backed up my blog today. Your experience, sad as it was, serves as an excellent lesson for us all! And Anne's tutorial is as clear as I have ever seen, really easy when you know how!

    We have to look out for tomorrow; that is apparently the day to decide if winter stays or goes. because it's Candlemas. If it's fine weather, we're in for another blast of winter apparently!

  24. Hi Amy...
    I deleted a bunch of photos once...by deleting them in Picasa!
    What a shocker to see all the pics missing!
    Luckily it was only a few posts, and I added them back in!
    I hope you don't tear your hair out, trying to add them all back in!
    We have been snowing here....all day!
    By this time next week....I will be wearing my flip flops!
    Cheers!
    Linda :o)

  26. Noted! Mr B is all about the hard-drive and backing things up thankfully and I tend to not blog directly on my blog but use an app so I'm hoping that protects me a bit, but I'm no techy whizz I must admit! I'll get over to Anne's blog and check out what she says! X

  27. Not checked out Anne yet, but I do know about backing up etc but it's always good to learn so I'm popping over soon to see what she says. Glad you are getting sorted. Luv Suzy x

  28. Oh dear Amy -- it sounds like you've been through the wringer! Blogs can be so frustrating -- especially when things don't go as planned. I still struggle with the mess from when my account was hacked, but I've decided I can't spend any more time on it -- I just have to go forward from here. Good Luck with all of your fixes!
