back up a go go

i hadn't really thought of the need of a back up but earlier today i clicked on my own bookmark and came up with a curious warning from blogger:

Content Warning

Some readers of this blog have contacted Google because they believe this blog's content is objectionable. In general, Google does not review nor do we endorse the content of this or any blog. For more information about our content policies, please visit the Blogger

which totally freaked me out.

wether some barbie collector happened upon the blog and flagged it, or some disgruntled yim/emailer i don't know. so i reset the blogger setting to say its over 18 content as a start. i then managed i think to do some sort of back up within blogger excludding the comments which i then saved as two separate PDF documents - sort of like DollsRealm the book (which is pretty neat actually). sadly these lack the large images or any of the youtube videos.

since it didn't display anything prior to nov 2006 i then opened each month from Dec 2005 till then and saved them as a web archive.

i think that will hold me till i can get the right software back up done and at the moment its not working.

if you are an experienced blogger then please please please email me if you can help with some how to.

im sure not TOO much to worry about,
just need the over 18 thing activated, so 'doll searching' kids dont happen on the blog and get disturbed! hehe...

good to back it all up anyways, be a shame to loose any of it , for any reason.

Yikes! *Clings to the blog's heels*

It seems easy enough to make a backup, and quite quickly, too. Just sign up for, i.e. Blogger in Draft, and you have the option to make an (imperfect) XML backup of all your posts. It works well within Blogger - I abandoned one of my older blogs and integrated its posts into Vidal's Dolly Realm with no issues.

I agree with your anonymous commenter, though. Flagging this site as 18 is the right thing to do, and should cover your back for future.

Hi Vidal

i tried that and didn't seem to work. maybe i was doing something wrong. i was able to run the mac webgrabber app on your blog without any problems.

so what gives?
