How to back up your blog in Google Blogger

To back up your blog, that is, save a copy onto your computer, go to "Settings". Once you are at the new page, click on "Export Blog". Yes, I know it would be nice if it said, "Back up Blog", but it doesn't. Again, I don't know why software designers name things other than what everyone else calls them, but they do. I'm sure that they are nice people.

Then you will get to a screen that says "Export Blog", and a big orange button that says, "Download Blog". This will make a copy of your blog, in XML, that you can retrieve if necessary. It gives a name that gives the date of the backup. Do this any time you feel nervous, which for me is quite often!
