Backup Blogger Blog​

The “Back up content” option is to take a complete backup of your blog posts, pages, and comments.

I recommend you to take a Blogger backup at regular intervals. If there are any problems on your blog, then you can use this backup to restore posts, pages, and comments.

Also, you can use this backup to move your blog to another blogging platform such as WordPress.
