How To Backup Blogger Blog

I love Blogger. All of my blogs is hosted by them. It's the ease of use and the customisability of it's template that make Blogger blogs famous. In fact, all you need to do is know the Blogger template tags to be able to customize your own template.

But sometimes you might want to use or transfer your existing blog to other blogging engine such as Wordpress. Your biggest problem would be how to back up your existing blog. The good news is, you can. Blogger provides a formula to view all of your blog's post. See below:

http://blogname.blogspot.com/search?max-results=N

Where:
blogname = the name of your blog
N = the number of post in your blog

For example, if your blogs name is http://joelbadinas.com and that blog has less than 1000 posts, you can view all the post through this URL:

http://joelbadinas.com/search?max-results=1000

Once all in that page has been loaded, save it using the <File> -> <Save page As> menu in FireFox or <File> -> <Save As> menu in IE. Make sure you select "Web Page, complete" in the "Save as type" combo box.
