Simple Automated Blogger Backup

A while back a friend asked me if I could help her retrieve a lost blog post, I said no and instead explained why she should be backing up her blog and not bothering me with her shenanigans (an aternate version of this story involves me searching Google tirelessly for a cached copy of her blog but it was not indexed and therefore unrecoverable before I suggested the following back up tip.... but it's much lamer). Speaking of lame stories, back in the day you used to be able to publish to Blogger from Docs, that option does not exist any more. Any-who, here is a simple automated blogger backup tip that's let's you get a copy of each new blog post in your Gmail.
In Blogger go to settings -> mobile and email.Put in your email address in the "email posts to" section.Profit. Now you could stop there and would have an emailed copy of every post, but that's pretty weaksauce. You'd be a lot cooler if you went into your Gmail and set up an auto label for emails …
