Your long term survival and maybe even your short term survival may well depend on your action points on this issue. Many businesses go bust when they have a total data loss from their hard drives crashing or their websites and blogs getting hacked.
You must back up your blog!
There are 2 types of bloggers – those who have had a broken blog and those who will experience a broken blog. You don’t care about how and why – whether your webhost goes bust or is hit by a flood or tornado or whether some broken brained idiot breaks into your blog and destroys it.
You must have a back up for your blog!
It is so easy to install this back up plugin and so important that I think it is a priority plugin fora ll my blogs.
There are a few of these plugins and I have not tried them all. But just taking a few seconds to install this is real life saver.
