How to Backup & Restore Blog Posts Using Blogger Import/Export Feature




Blogger has an awesome feature to download and save blog posts on your computer. Of course, you can later restore the posts as well. Additionally, you can also move your posts to some other blogging platform using the export feature or to some other Blogger blog. I'd highly recommend to regularly backup your posts. Check out the instructions to see how to do it.

1- Export or Backup Blog Posts to Your Computer


1. Chose Settings from the list of options. You can press the drop down arrow button to see more options.
2. In the Settings section, click Other from the left menu.
3. You'll see 3 options in Blog Tools. Click Export blog. A window will open where you'd have to click the Download Blog button.
4. An .XML file will be downloaded to your computer. Make sure to give it a proper name and keep it safe. This file will be used to restore your posts later.

2- Import or Restore Blog Posts From Your Computer
