Business of Blogging, Cool Scripts

BlogBackupOnline: I found out about this service while reading through Leo Laporte’s latest post in which he talks about how he used BlogBackupOnline to import all old VOX posts from his old blog and restore them onto WordPress. From their help PDF, Techrigy’s BlogBackupOnline allows users to create a full blog backup, schedule automatic daily backups, and restore or export a blog. The service is free for the first 50 MB (while in Beta) and backups can be scheduled and restores can be incremental. This service can be used to import blogs, restore single posts, export blogs from one platform into another among other features. Supported platforms include Blogger, WordPress, Friendster, LiveJournal, TypePad, Serendipity, Windows Live Spaces, Movable Type, Terapad, Vox and Multiply. A worthy tool indeed. Priced right, it could be a silent soldier that everyone depends upon.

    Why not just use a plugin to backup the database and email it to a GMail account. Shame on you if you don’t have your latest WP files backed up.

    Although nice, it will never compare with the Backup utility found within Cpanel.

    Hey Mark – Leo got to this a tad late! It’s a great service and I covered it in July on my blog –

    I would not depend on blogbackuponline yet. I’ve been testing it and have found several problems and would not recommend it to anyone for now. I thought I was going to write a blog post saying how great it was (I’d reviewed other blog backups) but when I got into testing, it acted wonky enough that I couldn’t. I am getting ready to write a post on my findings, check for more information if you are interested.

    This service sounds good, I currently backup my blog manually during every upgrade. Automating it would obviously make things much easier.

    BlogBackupOnline should be banned! A couple of days ago some idiot was about to sell my blog’s database on Digital Point, thanks to this service. You can backup anyone’s blog without their permission, and restore the data anywhere (on any blog) you want. One could make a clone of this blog in just 5 minutes! So, you still think this is good service?

    That sounds really helpful! When I lose data, I can simply restore the backup.
