Hubbers, can you weigh in on whether you save copies of your hubs off-line (electronically or by printing)? As my hubs have increased, my investment has as well. It leaves me to wonder whether it is a good idea to have back-ups. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Great question! I am certain that many are wondering the same thing. I think it is always a very good idea to back up all of your work because you simply never know. Take care and have a wonderful day! -Rose
I save all of mine, as I first create them in Word. I use them as samples when I'm looking for freelance work and use them when pitching to a magazine. They are part of my portfolio. I have several folders in Word that relate to my writing, i.e. poetry, short stories, samples, Perspectives and hubs (those are the ones I write that don't fall into any of the above). I think it's important as a writer to maintain copies of everything I write.
I have a dropbox account where I save all of my hubs and blogs, as well as my personal things, pictures, etc. It is a free online cloud storage and I have mine set up to save it automatically. There are several brands to choose from but I have been happy with this so far!
My thinking precisely. Additionally, sometimes the editing takes on a life of it's own and I just want to go back to what I had but there is no record od it. Do you save your hubs in word processing form (MSWord, for example) or is there a better way, capturing layout etc.??
I don't, but that is a great idea. I am planning on backing my computer up soon, so I think I will do the same with all of the hubs I have put work into, as well. It would be a shame to lose everything if something happened to this site! ~ Kathryn

I'm very grateful to Hubpages for putting the little red C on our dashboards to warn us when our content has been copied.It didn't take me too long to hunt down the content thieves on a couple hubs and send out DMCA...
