It’s one thing to try and protect your blog posts from being plagiarized, however, now I’ve been asking myself, a different question.
In the event of a natural, or man made disaster, how safe is my blog?
Recently, (week of 10/21/07), if you watch the news, you saw how a million (+/-) residents of the State of California were evacuated, due to wildfires. Many, were forced to leave, with only a few minutes notice. One man, when interviewed, stated that before he could get his pants on, the fire was already licking at the side of their home.
Years ago, we were evacuated due to the threat of fire. We were put “on standby”, so we took precautions, and packed a large truck, full of valuables and clothes we may need to last a few days. When we got the call to leave, we were ready. Fortunately, our home wasn’t affected by the fire, but it was an eye opening experience.
The recent terror in California, got me to thinking. Am I prepared, if we were stuck by a disaster? Just the thought of it, motivated me to save my blog information, not only to my hard drive, but on my web host’s server, as well.
In response to the self directed question, I wrote a post on my other blog, titled:How To Prepare For Disaster, with hopes of alerting others to the importance of being prepared.
Are you backing up your blog information?
In the event of a disaster, would your blog be lost?
Could you be back online, in a short period of time?
If you lost all of your blog, would you care?
If you got the call to evacuate, what would you grab?
