Dude, Where's My Blog??

Blogger nearly gave me heart failure today. No posts appeared on my main page at all.

Seems like the setting for the number of posts to show somehow spontaneously set itself to zero.

I know I always say if computers and networks didn't screw up I'd be out of a job, but dayum.

I'm wondering if there's an easy way to backup and save all posts on blogger to something that can be retrieved?

Maybe someone more computer savvy knows?

I already back everything up, being a computer/network geek by profession. It's the hassle of restoring and validating a restored system that none of us looks forward to.

Just a heads up. Bayou Renaissance Man had it as well and raven noticed it. Sometimes when you first log on to a blogger blog, half the content, either the main or the sidebar is just GONE. But if you go back in, it's there. I changed to a different template within blogger and so far so good.

As far as the whole content, I just "select all" on my edit upper bar, then hit save as to my desktop (that actually opens two files, one just of the pictures, and one with the text that has the blog name) I can then take the one that has the name and put it on a thumb drive as back up. When you move the one with the name over the one with just pictures goes as well. I'm a computer idiot but that's the best way I can explain.
