The New Blogger

Okay, so most of you have probably already updated your use of Blogger and have gone to Blogger Beta, or whatever it's called. Yesterday, I figured, sure, why not switch it over, it sounds promising. And that's when my blog fell off the face of the world wide web. I freaked. But it turns out that Blogger really does have my best interests in mind, and sure enough, my blog re-appeared. If it had been gone, I think I would have seriously called in sick for work today; I would have been sick at heart if I lost my blog -- I have been posting to this postage stamp piece of cyber-real estate for nearly a year and half and I am quite invested in it.

Anyhoo, in other news, I cut last night's run short: from 7 miles to 3 (I was still pretty stiff and, you know, wasn't feelin' it) -- and this after several of you labeled me "consistent." Thankfully, I have the day off tomorrow (Veteran's Day Observance), so I will have time for a longer run then. Today, I am resting and, well, teaching my little hiny off.

P.S. Interestingly enough, Blooger's suggestions for labels on this post are: scooters, vacation, and fall. WTF?

people talk about "backing up" their blog? do you know anything about how to do this? besides cutting and pasting your posts into a word processing program?

I have no idea how to back up a blog, but I am not the most tech savvy. In fact, I still don't understand how to log-in with my new Google account.

The suggestions are correct. Scooters is code for scooter, he is so crazy they are using the plural form of the word. Vacation is code for you slacking on running yesterday, and fall is code for what happens sometimes when you run. Mystery Solved.

actually they give that as suggestions for every post.

Okay, now I'm kinda peeved at Blogger because I can't seem to access some other's blogs -- I usually skip to them via their comment links and now instead of their blog identifier, it says "anonymous." Why? Why, God of Blogs, why?

to back up your blog, go to each month of your archives and "Save Page As..." into a folder on your comp.

Then log into blogger, go to your template and copy every line of code there into a .txt file probably into the same folder you backed your blog up to.

That way your writing will be saved, and your blog set up. Never hurts to be safe.

I just switched too. It's not so bad.

I have yet to switch. I am too nervous that everything will go bye-bye!
