Backup your Blog with your Feed
Johan presents a very neat hack for backing up your blog by saving your feed. For the code, and full instructions, see Ecmanaut:
Go to https://www.blogger.com/atom/ and type in your Blogger login information. This will yield you a very brief and to the point chunk of XML that at least Mozilla and Internet Explorer will render quite readably for you.... Mark and copy the URL in either (they are the same) href attribute of the blog you want to back up, and paste it into your browser's address field.
Much more efficient than sitting on e-mail copies of your posts, which has been my handy backup solution 'til now!!

Looks like there is a limited number of past posts that it shows, not all.

Maybe we need to do this every now and then, starting with a baseline?
