How to back-up your blogger blog

I tried importing this back up blog file and these were my observation.

  •  It is not 100% exactly the same as my existing blog.
  • My blog template is the same and all my post are intact.
  • G+ followers are intact but GFC and other social media are not.
  • Only Home page can be found and the rest of my pages gone.
  • Comments are retained but my statistics are back to zero.
  • Blog buttons and party links are no where to be found.

Let us go to word verification.
I am sorry to say this but I hate comment word verification. It is a pain to the eyes. Sometimes it is hard to decipher the letters and numbers in the Captcha. I have found a lot of blogger blogs have this. Let’s make commenting easy for our readers. Here’s how to do it.
Go to Settings.  Click Posts and Comments. Under Show word verification choose “No” . That’s it.
