Backing up a Blogger blog

There seems to have been a flurry of activity around 2008 with a lot of tools being written to back up Blogger blogs, but not much since then. After a bit of searching, I found jblogbackup, which seems to be a reliable, command-line based solution. To get this to work, I needed to do the following:

  1. Download the Java RTE and add the bin folder to my path environment variable.
  2. Download jblogbackup.
  3. Set the Feedburner feed for my blog to download more than 25 entries by clicking on "Edit Feed Details…" and setting Original Feed to Hopefully 999 entries will last a while.
  4. Run the tool:
    java -jar jblogbackup-onejar-1.1.jar -b BloggerBackup -c -imgthreads 4 -n nzbart
