Do you keep a backup of your Hubs? If so, do you keep it in your hard disk or elsewhere!


Why I ask this is because I was writing for an online website earlier , before joining HubPages. I had saved the links to those 25 + articles that I had published there. Now when I click on those links , I get the message that the articles are 'not found' or 'can't open the page'. But the website is very much there , though it looks different. I understand that it is difficult to save or keep backup of so many hubs . Is there an easier way?

    Your sermons are like treasure , whether they are promoted or not, they are guidelines for life's journey. You may compile them in a book later on.

    I do keep backups though not for all my hubs. But now I would do

    Thank you Manatita for answering! So wise of you to print each of your wonderful hubs. I should at least save them on my computer. As I mentioned in the question, my articles from the online site where I was publishing earlier have vanished. Thanks!

    Thank you Tomi Smith for answering the question! I would follow your advice. I normally don't save all my hubs but only a few of them.

    Thanks for your helpful answer!

    Thank you Eric Calderwood for answering the question!

    No you are not over cautious. You are doing the right thing by keeping a hard copy. I lost many of my articles where I was writing prior to HubPages. Thanks and good day to you!

    Thanks Shyron for your response to the question!

    Keeping Hubs in word documents is the ideal thing to do.

    You are right about thieves but that is the cruel truth about Internet. It has happened to me as well on several occasions.

    Thanks again!
