Our new project

So, with Rob being gone and the kids gone to bed by 8:30, I needed something to occupy my time at night. I have been concerned lately about all the information that is here on the blog that could one day just *poof* be gone. The internet is a scary thing that way. I have no back ups at all of all the stuff on here, and really it is documentation and pictures of the last 4 years of our lives. So, I had a brainwave last night that I should copy everything into a word document, and then I could save it and potentially print it all off. When I mentioned this to Rob, he decided to take it one step further and proceeded to set up a beautiful MS Publisher document that I could copy the blog to. It's very time consuming as you can imagine, as I have to cut and paste every post. Because, if I were to use cut and paste it page by page, it would be in reverse order. I also want to save the associated comments with each post. It will give me something to do in the evenings when I'm not tired enough to go to sleep and don't feel like watching TV. It's a good walk down memory lane. If I was more "computer savvy" would do a screen shot and show you want I mean, but I can't seem to get the stupid thing to work!

That's going to be a huge job! Don't forget about Blurb.com, there you can make a book of your blog.

A god idea. Sounds like something I should be doing one of these days.

Hey Tina,
If you set up your screen the way you want it to look, you can just press Shift+PrintScreen, open Paint, and go to Edit--->Paste (or you can just right click on the white space and click paste).
Either way, that should work!

Thanks Stacy, I'll give it a try.

I send myself a copy of every post to my google mail for a back-up...just in case

Tina, there's a (somewhat complicated) way to backup your whole blog. The Blogger Help section has this:

Looks kinda scary, but might be worth a try.

Thanks Gil. I looked at that too. Much to complicated for me. :)
