I feel so bad fur Asta's beans losing all them's photos. It is so easy to do sumfing like that, I's done it, too. So I's updating mine two artickles about backing up yours bloggies (KC Sez Backup Yours Blog and Tecknickle Tortie Toosday) using Greg's Cool Blogger Backup Utility, a fast, free backup utility that only works for Blogger blogs.
The current nooest release is v1.09.23. There is a tutorial on Downloading the Blogger Backup Utility 101 and screenshots to walk you thru installashun. Again, iffen you haf problems or need help, just ask. Like I said before, I's always happy to help unless I's taking a nap or chasing a bug or sumfing. And even then, I's help you afferwards. Hee hee. An Greg is a furry nice guy who's also happy to help when him's not waiting on him's kitties.
Once you download and install Blogger Backup, it is ready to use. It will automatikally find all yours bloggies... just enter yours Google login and password. Or, iffen you want to, you can manually enter the URL fur each bloggie.
After you haf a list of blogs, just select the one to backup by clicking the "Backup Posts" button. It's furry fast. The "Restore Posts" button is used, of course, if sumfing happened to yours bloggie.
I back up ours bloggies to an external hard drive that connects to the computer via a USB port and also to DVDs.
That takes care of yours bloggie, but wherever you store your photos, you should haf a backup. Asta's beans had them's photos organized using Picasa, free photo software from Google. I like Picasa cause when you install it, it searchs an finds all the photos on yours computer. I finded lots I didn't even know I had. There are easy instrukshuns to backup to a CD or DVD or to an external drive.
I hope this helps a bit. Iffen you haf questions, comments or suggestshuns, just leave them in the comments.
Love and Purrs,
