Backup your entire blog in Blogger

Another tip for Blogger bloggers: did you know that you can backup your entire blog?

Regretably, it's no one-click backup of your blog, but a workaround for grabbing all your posts in a single file is documented in the Advanced Use section of the Blogger Help.

The whole procedure takes about 10 minutes (you basically have to backup your template, replace it with a another one, change a few settings, republish your blog, save the backup-release of your blog to your disk, restore the original settings and your original template, and republish again), but it's well worth the effort.

Supplementary to the instructions given, you could set Enable float alignment in Settings | Formatting to No (otherwise you get <div>'s spread all over your backup file).
