Never wanting to let the grass grow under its feet, Google is continuing the process of expanding the kinds of data its users can export and download to save locally on their machines.
On its Data Liberation blog, Google posted an announcement that Blogger users can now download their entire archive or, individual posts from their blogs using Google Takeout. For those of you with a blog hosted on the service, you can now hold onto the data for later years. Blog posts are exported as Atom XML files. Data Liberation has added a couple more kinds of Google+ data that can be exported: you can now download HTML files of your posts and JSON files with your Circles.
A perfect match: Blogger and Google+ Pages for Takeout
You: A Blogger or Google+ Page owner who dreams of controlling their data.
Us: A band of engineers who will stop at nothing to make your dreams come true.
Meet us at https://www.google.com/takeout, and together we will export each of your blogs as an Atom Xml file. Or, if you’ve enjoyed exporting data from your Google+ Stream and Google+ Circles through Takeout in the past, but are looking for something more, join us now and download html files with your posts and json files containing the circles for each Google+ Page you own. If you don’t want to rush into things, we can also just export a single blog or page of your choice. Either way, give us a try. Life will never be the same.
