I have been procrastinating this task for some time, but I have found a very easy tool to back up my blog at Blog Backup Online. The service, which is in Beta, can be scheduled to update automatically daily. Best of all, it is free for now.
It also claims that the backups can be imported into any of its supported blog platforms.
The service works with the following blog platforms:
- Live Spaces
The backup process was very easy and you can also download the backup to your own computer. You can back up more than one blog per account, so it is ideal for people with multiple blogs.
I will be attempting to transfer existing content from a blog (not this one) to another platform fairly soon. I will let you know if I have any problems.
