Well, if you follow me on Twitter or read my blog, you may know that I lost a lot of my content recently. The worse part is that I don't know exactly how much, but every day I've been noticed truncated posts and missing content.

Of course, the first thing everyone asked me was, "Well, didn't you have a back up?!" Duh...yes, I did. I was using a Wordpress plugin that I assumed was maintaining the backbone of my blog - the SQL databases. When I clicked to restore a back-up, my site was damaged beyond repair.

Anyway...as I prepare to better secure my content, I've got some questions:

1. What do you use to back-up your blog? (Esp. interested in WP users, but others may be interested in those using other platforms)

2. Have you ever had to restore from a back-up and was it successful?

Looking forward to your ideas - thank you!

Thanks for the reply Cindi. I think I'll try manually exporting as well. I thought the plug-in would save me the hassle, but I'd rather be inconvenienced for a few minutes each week than go through this again.
I'm planning to develop my posts in my word processing program and save those files now...thanks.
Huh...I'll try contacting my hosting company. Thx for the idea!
I had this experience! right on the money Mom on the Rise!

I downloaded a plugin and it corrupted everything! I asked bluehost to help and they said they could restore it to previous time which I think was about a week before. To recreate the week or so I copied and pasted from google's cache but even if I had lost the week it was totally worth it!!

Hope it works out for you!
