Since we all know "things" happen in cyberspace, it is best to backup your blog occasionally (just in case….).

To do this in Typepad,

  • go to Settings, then Import/Export.
  • Then click the Export button.
  • It will take a few minutes to produce a "Download" link.  This is a link to a file that has your blog's data in a Moveable Type Format.
  • Right-click the link and Save Target As (to save the text file to your computer) or simply click the link to open the file and then do a File->Save As to save it to your computer.

Then, if you had to do an Import. You would come to the same place and choose to Import.

  • Then choose the Moveable Type (Typepad) Format.
  • Then select to choose a file from your computer. 
  • Choose this file (you just exported), and continue.

Best wishes,
