Do you backup your blog?

Recommended Posts

Update: I am in the process of building a completely new website, as WordPress refuses to communicate with me and give me back control of my original blog. I hope to have Adventures in Polishland back up and running by the end of the week. Thank you for understanding.

Today Adventures in Polishland's blog was disabled or deleted by Wordpress. Reason: Unknown but according to their site she violated their Terms of Service.

 

adventuresinpolishland.wordpress.com is no longer available.

This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service.

For more information and to contact us please read this support document.

 

This led me to share her status on my own Facebook wall with this message.

 

WordPress disabled Adventures in Polishland blog! She's in the process of building a new one because of it. How horrible to start over from scratch since it means losing her stats and website traffic data!

 

This brings me to a tip of the day for bloggers. We all typically depend on some type of blogging site to host our posts and/or photos but what happens when your account is compromised either by the host shutting the site down or getting hacked? Do YOU have backups of your blog or photos? I know with my pictures I do have my photos on my PC but my actual blog posts, I don't. I would suggest at least once a week to back your posts up or twice a week if you post frequently.

 

Which in turn brings me to this post. Do YOU backup your blog in the event it's compromised or deleted?

I am self-hosted so my host backs up once per week and I also have a plugin that sends me a copy of all files once per week. 

 

That's a bummer. Wordpress.com (the free blog site) can be a real stinker.

wordpress has an export function. I just did it now - lol. It doesn't back your photos, it seems like. I would have to test this by creating another site and importing it.

 

I should do this every so often.

Always always always back up everything, once a week at the least. Host one copy on your server and one copy on your personal device, so that in the event your server crashes and burns, you don't lose your backups too.

 

I usually keep 6 months worth of back ups on my computer, and the past month's worth on my server. I have had sites be deleted/hacked/wiped/server errors, you name it, so many times that at this point it gives me anxiety if I don't have back ups. :)

 

ETA: SPeeelling, how do it?

ETA2: If you are not hosted on your own server (if you are on the Wordpress site or what-not) the keeping a copy on your server part wouldn't make sense, so just keep a back up on your own device.

I don't, but I believe my hosting does. Moreover, since I write posts in One Note first, I have copies of older posts. However, since I recently moved my blog to Wordpress, and there is a plugin for backing up site content, I'll probably start doing that.

I honestly have no idea how I would even go about doing that on blogger, but it's definitely a good thing for me to start looking into!

@@MissJexie - if you go to blogger.com -> Setting -> Other in "Blog Tools" section there is "export blog" option. I believe it allows you to download posts and comments, but not the template. There is "backup/restore" button for templates under "Template" tab.

Make sure you have a developer backup your blog. If you don't export your files and databases correctly you might cause even more pain for yourself... Wordpress has a couple of nice plugins that can do that for you, but I guess it just depends how your website is hosted!

 

best, Zan

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help from https://www.emop.co.uk/clapham-cleaner/ to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
