Step 1: (Click the image to enlarge)
On your Blogger dashboard, click "Template". This is what you should see:
In the upper right-hand corner, click the "Backup/Restore" button. This will open the following screen:
Simply click the orange "Download full template". This will save a file of your current design onto your computer. You could then upload this template at a later time. This is great if you want to keep an older design or if you want to save your current template before making self-changes just in case something would go wrong. :)
Tip #2: Exporting your blog posts
As I mentioned above, I save my blog posts about once a month. This way I know that if something should ever go wrong with my blog, I would still have my posts that could easily by uploaded to another blog.
Step 1: (Click image to enlarge)
On your Blogger dashboard, click "Settings". Once in Settings, click "Other" under the drop-down list (highlighted in yellow). You should now see the following page:
Click the blue link titled "Export Blog". This will open up the following screen:
Simply click the orange "Download Blog" button and a file containing all of your blog posts will be downloaded to your computer. If necessary, this file can then be imported to another blog at any time.
