Precautions :-
  • Go to
    • Template => Backup/Restore => Download full template[New UI].
    • Design => Edit HTML => Download full template[Old UI].
    Do these whenever you change something regarding your template.
  • Go to
    • Settings => Others => Export Blog[New UI].
    • Settings => Basic => Export Blog[Old UI].
    Do this at least once in two weeks.
  • Have a third party mail ID. Setup auto mailing to that mail ID.
    • Go to Settings => Mobile and email => Email Posts to => {give your external mail ID}=> Save settings.[New UI]
    • Go to Settings => Email & Mobile => BlogSend Address => {give your external mail ID} => Save Settings.[Old UI]

          Here , the word post means "after" and not the post on blogger. If you find that your account is disabled,
  • Go to Gmail Log in Page. Click Here. Click Can't access your account? (or) Click Here. Try resetting your password by any of these methods. You will regain your account(May not be possible in all cases)
  • Now, there are two ways to go.
    1. Re-creating new blog[However not possible with same URL :( ].
    2. Hating Blogging. The upcoming part is for Re-creaters and not hate-ers. 
  • After creating new blog, upload your blog template and then import blog(The one which you exported). You will be partially happy, of this step.
  • If failed to download blog and template, you shall copy paste the posts that are in your third party mail.
  • You shall make use of Google cached memory.
What is Google cached memory?
  • To make use of this, your blog must be indexed in Google search.
  • Your site will be indexed, only when traffic to your site increases. 
  • If indexed, then Go to Google, type the article name, For example, The Truth behind hosts file site blocking Site : www.krishnainfotron.blogspot.com.
  • Move your mouse pointer near the arrow near your article. Click on cached. You will get a page like this. Click here.Copy & paste from there.
