Here’s some ideas for what you can do with importing and exporting:
- Merge two or more blogs into one. Take the exported posts and comments from one blog and import them into another one.
- Move individual posts from blog to blog. After importing, select just a set of posts to publish and publish them with one click.
- Back up your blog to your own storage. You can keep your words safe and under your control in case anything happens to your blog, or if you want to remove them from the Internet.
- Move your blog somewhere else. export format is standard Atom XML. i hope to see other blogging providers extend their Atom support to include import and export. And, if you decide to come back to Blogger, importing your export file will get you back up and running in seconds.
Before importing a blog for the first time, i recommend that you create a new, throwaway blog to import into so you get a sense for how the process works. Once you’re comfortable, import into your public blog. for more detail visit blogger help page : https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/97416
