How To Backup Template and Content in Blogger?

Do you miss taking backups?

No matter what CMS you use, you are making a huge mistake.

We often change settings of our blog that no one can guarantee everything will go alright.

And, sometimes your blog may be false flagged by Google as well.

In any of the similar situations above, you need to have a second channel to bring your blog back to life.

For WordPress users, the process can be automated with the help of plugins and cloud services.

But you should do the backup process manually in the case of Blogger blogs.

That’s why I have come up with a guide to walk you through the process of backing up blogger blogs.
