Backing-up your blog - in the current GUI.
Since I wrote about Backing-up your blog, in 2013, Blogger has changed the options via a newer GUI.
1) They have an option to 'Save Blog Content', via the 'Settings - Other' screen, which is a new feature - which used to be done with the saving of the template in the 'old' GUI, and...
2) They've done away with the Template access point on the Layout screen, and replaced it with the 'Theme' screen (which used to be the 'Design' screen).
Now, the two different Back-ups are different in this way - one backs-up your 'CONTENT' - ie: Posts, Pages and Comments, while the other simply backs-up your blog 'THEME'. Why they are different is probably to make it easier to 'Import' content, and not interfere with the template, sorry, the Theme. Am I confused?
For both Back-ups, you'll need to have prepared a Folder, somewhere on your computer, to store the .xml files.
* Backing-up Content - 2 screens
* Backing-up Theme - 2 screens
I recommend doing this EVERY TIME you make ANY CHANGE to your blog.
