I wish I had found this utility before! Like many others on Blogger recently, my client's blog (http://johnmichaeltalbot.blogspot.com) has been falsely labeled spam. My sign-in information has been "disabled" so I cannot access the blog OR file an appeal for review. This is the 10th day. On first reading I thought your utility would save w/o the sign-in information but it did not. Is there something I missed? A form letter from Goggle said they would delete the blog in what is now only 10 days.

Thanks for any help.

In checking out the blog and feed I would have expected the Utility to work...

Running it now through the debugger to see why it's not. I'll let you know what I find.

Good news... With the latest version of the utility (the one I'm still testing and have not yet released) I CAN back up this blog! :) All 180 posts and their comments.

The downside, is due to how the posts were created I'm not able to get the Title for each post... The title text is there in the body, formatted but not as a "Title" element. But we're able to get all the content, etc (and it should be fairly restorable too, except for comment restore which I don't have working yet, but at least the post is restorable...)

To show you how a restore would look, I took the newest post and restored it to my test blog, http://bloggerbackuputility.blogspot.com/2008/07/understanding-gods-mysteries-gospel.html. It looks pretty good, doesn't it?  :)

Please email me so we can work offline to get you these backups... gduncan411 at hotmail com
