Menorise [men-oh-rIse]; the process of inculcation

"There are two seasons in Scotland.  
June and Winter."
(Billy Connolly)

In regards to another form of 'inculcation', that is to say, useful information for the imbibing thereof, 
Charlie from Downunder asked a very pertinent question yesterday which prompted a rather full response. Considering it may be of use to the general Blogvillager, it is pasted here also...

No worries Charlie mate - the page will be here when mum's got the time.
As to blog save - that is very easy.  Go into the blog's setup pages where you see the list on the left of things like 'posts', 'comments', 'layout' and so on. At the bottom you will see 'settings'.
Click that.
Now click the 'other' at the bottom of the settings list. At the top of that page you will see links for import/export/delete.  Click export.
A box will come up with the 'download' instruction. It will go into your dowloads folder where you can the place it where you like for storage.
What the help (eerrrr.. Mum) may not be aware of is that EVERY picture uploaded to blogger gets stored in 'the cloud' on picasa. So once in the ether, always in the ether.... this is why it is advisable to 'watermark' all photographs.  In theory they are secure to you, but as we know, lots of things turn up on Google images which I am fairly sure the copyright owners didn't want there!!!
Be aware that what this export function exports only photographs and written content - it also holds onto comments made on the posts. It DOES NOT save the format of the blog page. If for any reason your page was compromised it would be necessary to set it up again and then IMPORT the saved items.  
Which brings up the need, if you are going to take this action, of saving regularly (once a week, say), so that the  most you would lose in the event of a crash of the page is max 7 days.
This brings up the need to back-up computer systems on a similar time scale.  If a pc or tablet crashes, and you haven't backed up to an external storage device.....   no sympathy here.... (she can be a hard woman at times, the old aunty...) Yxx


Need to make three things, so let me remind all those who are taking up the Blogville Marathon challenge - train well, remember to stretch, and hydrate!!!


  1. We are beginning to think there are 2 seasons in NC. Summer and February...it has been a month to remember for sure. 3 snow events in 9 days is unheard of in NC

  2. We have two seasons WINTER and MUD... We LOVE MUD season.... it is Warm and Sunny and we can be outside, in the shade if necessary, and just Sniff stuffs and enjoy... this WINTER is fur the Penguins...
