    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.
