Do You Trust Google Blogspot With Your Precious Possesion?
Google is a marvelous product and a very handy tool. Many of us use their blogger blogspot templates for our work. It's easy, reliable, intuitive, and free!
But every once in awhile, one of those error screens pop up. I was uploading photos this morning, and this happened. Mmmmmmmmm.
I have a Mac, so I really don't worry about crashing too much - except when I think of The Sex And The City episode (My Motherboard Myself) where Carrie's Mac crashed, and Aiden bought her that crappy one. Everyone kept asking Carrie "do you back up your files?"
I have come to trust good ol' blogspot so much, that I have started dumping photos from my files that are already in use on my blog. I don't have rough drafts of any of my writing anywhere else, again trusting blogspot to be my archive.
We spend hours and hours working on our blogs. Has anyone ever lost anything, like their entire precious blog, due to a malfunction at Google?
