Back Up Your Blog Easily with Backup Buddy

Posted by: | Comments (0)

This post is about the importance of backing up your blog.   Are you backing your blog up on the regular? If not, you really should be, and not just your database.  You need to be backing up your whole site!

Have you ever done something really stupid and messed something up accidentally or deleted something really important and had to re-do a whole bunch of work.  Maybe you lost things you couldn’t get back?   If so, then you know how much it sucks when you have worked really hard on your blog, getting your theme just the way you want it, with all your plugins and widgets set up, working right, and looking good..and you have lots of posts, pics, and maybe even videos, and drafts of posts stored, and posts finished and scheduled to be published, and then your blog crashes, or you do something stupid and completely screw it up.

There are many things that can happen to your blog that can trash it and make you cry like a baby if you haven’t been backing it up on a regular basis.  That’s why it is super important to have some sort of backup plugin installed on your blog.  Preferably something that backs it up automatically on a regular basis, so you won’t forget and have to go through the agony of trying to glue your blog back together when disaster strikes.

Today I installed a new (to me) plugin that I’m so totally loving! It’s called Embedly, and it lets you embed videos, pictures, music, pretty much anything with just the url.  No code.  No messing with anything.  Just paste the url from 200+  (and growing) media sources and you’re done.  You can now embed tweets or pics or whatever you’d like from Twitter, or even Craigslist ads, articles from Scribd.com, and Amazon products.  All you need is the url.  That’s it.  Nothing else. Nada. Zip.

Want to post a video from Hulu?  copy the url of the video and paste it just like this right into your post window.

and it will look like this…

 

Want to post a cool picture you found on photobucket into your post?

paste the url..like this

This is going to make life so much easier.   This plugin allows you to embed content from sites that don’t really have any clear way to easily embed their content, and also eliminates problems with embed codes that just don’t want to play nice with WordPress.
