One issue I was having, though, was finding a way to backup my posts and comments here on blogger. It's a huge fear of mine that someday I'll log on and it will all be - pfffft - gone. Then what? All the time I've invested - gone!
Thank heavens I found Blogger Backup from Codeplex. I've been using them for awhile now, and I love them! Just download the program, run it, put in your blogger user name and password, and then select which blog(s) you'd like to backup. You can choose to save your comments or just your posts. You can also decide if you want to save your posts as one large file or as individual files.
It's super easy and super fast. And for those of you who want a way to backup your blogger blog, definitely check out the Blogger Backup from Codeplex.

I know it's crazy, but I'm really paranoid about germs. The thought of Parker finding anything on the floor that he could put in his mouth makes me shudder.
That's why I'm dying to win the giveaway over on raveandreview.com. She's giving away the new Oreck Halo - the vacuum I go to bed dreaming about at night. Seriously. Not only is it a cool looking vacuum, but it kills germs too!
With a price tag of $599, I desperately need to win this giveaway or have a PR rep from Oreck contact me to do a review of my own. (And, boy, could I give it a workout!!)
Enter for yourself here.
I'm hoping that karma is my friend and that by telling you all about this contest, it increases my chances just a little bit. :)
