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!
I write and save all my work off-line it would be pretty daft not to.If Hubpages died tomorrow I still have all my work.
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!
Definitely and why not? I always have a copy of those posts which i am writing here. It is important, in case we leave this site or the site goes down at least we have a backup of our hubs
I like the mention, by btrbell, for using dropbox. Not sure why I didn't think of that 'cos I use dropbox for a lot of other things.
thx, btrbell - I sometimes need the entirely obvious pointed out to me lol
There is a free utility called "Scrapbook" for firefox, it is very simple to use and can backup everyone of your pages very quickly just by running it from your account page.
I´m doing it offline, but not all hubs yet. I´m still printing some of the hubs that I wrote when I was in my home country. You´ll never know when and if you need the copies.

Janderson posted something really important yesterday which I think everybody here needs to read http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/132621#post2759379.If he is correct in his assumptions (which it appears he might be), it is time for all of us to start making copies of all of our hubs (if we are...

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a copy as "removed". Is there meant to be?It would be an awesome...

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 notices. The offending copies were on blogspot, so I assume Google will zap them...

Do you keep backups of all your hubs?We all know that its important to backup our important data, photos and music. Backing up our hubs is a good idea too, even if only to have an easily accessible version to edit offline. Do you store an offline copy of your hubs in text format? ...

Recently, there was a thread of someone complaining about Hub of the Days lacking amazing writing skills. Their complaint stated the Hubs being selected were because they were niche driven and 'how too's' instead of stellar writing from the soul. The day he posted that, it was my hub that was...
