Help!

Most of you have been doing this longer than me and have a lot more experience and expertise.

I'm just a simple caveman, with simple caveman ways.



I need a way to backup and safely archive all of my posts. I'd like to create a searchable archive so that when I have some brilliant flash of inspiration, I can do a search and make sure I'm not being Uncle Stanley at Thanksgiving telling the same "funny" story that he's told every fucking year since I was 6.

I also want a backup just because. Other than going into each and every post and ccpying and pasting the whole thing (comments included) into word and saving on my hard drive...is there a smarter and easier way?

If it's a WHOLE lot smarter and ridiculously easier, please word your response so that I don't feel like the biggest idiot on the planet.

Because I'm sensative like that.

I need help trying to figure out how to do the blogroll set up where it show if a blog has been updated.

Good evening - long time reader, first time caller...

This may not be ideal but what I do for archiving is to use Google Docs for each post.

I write them there and then copy & paste into my blog. Google Docs is searchable (which I think you want) and free - two things that bring me joy.

Hope that helps. If not, well, play nice and pretend it does if you don't mind.

As far as searchable...

What's wrong with using the search field at the top of your page? You can type in a search term and click the "search this blog" button and presto, you get a page full of blog posts on that subject.

Am I missing something here? Is that what you're after.

there is a way to do it but it'll make your head hurt. but if you go into Blogger help it'll show you how to do it. i've only done it maybe twice in all the years i've been doing this. but it will make you feel manly! here you go....
