Back your blog up

Er... that's supposed to be sung to the tune of Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up.

I found the link here. And I tried it. It all works as advertised.

What you do is use FireFox's excellent DownThemAll (DTA) extension to download your entire blog. The URL you use is


to get all your posts downloaded as a single file.


creates an XML file and


should get you all the comments as well – this did not work for me.

Also you can use the Tools>DownThemAll... link to go to the Make Your Selection dialog in DTA and select a variety of options, including all the photos that appear on your blog. Word of advice. Clear your history and load only the blog before you do this, it will make you life a heck of a lot simpler.
