Last week when I used the letter L for legends and leaving lullabies for family, several readers mentioned thoughts about saving their blogs.
portable version of Open Office which is free open source software compatible with Microsoft Office, Lotus and more. It includes a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation tool, drawing package and database. It consumes minimal space and performs all the magic I can manage.
Accessing my blog through the sign-in page/dashboard, I copy and paste to the word processor until there are as many pages as I want to keep in a file and then export that file to pdf format. It takes up very little space, can be viewed readily (complete with images) and its small size permits e-mailing with most programs.
I try to keep up with my blog month by month, save the pdf file to an external hard drive and at the end of the year publish it on Lulu.com for download in print or pdf format. My poetry books and novels are published the same way.
This method (or a similar one) might protect your blog from disappearance into Cyberia and might provide backup in case a copyright comes into question.
My opinion, only. :) And those who know me say I have an abundance of them - opinions, that is. But maybe I have a motley mass of memories that family might want to look at sometime. Who knows?
