Backed up your site lately?

Peeking in at problogger.net just now, my eyes fell on these words,

There are numerous reasons why this might happen ranging from being hacked, to having a server outage, to not backing up a blog and losing data etc.

Darren was writing about loss of web traffic due to a drop in Google Ranking. For professional bloggers. Which I am not. I'd still hate it if I lost all my traffic. The part that got me, though, was, "not backing up a blog and losing data etc."

Eek. When was the last time I backed up any of my sites??? I couldn't answer that question when it occurred to me. 

But now I can. I've backed up my websites tonight. And know I'll sleep better because of it. Just got another shiver, thinking about what a close call that was! (In the imaginary scenario my mind took me to after I started pondering my backups...)

Cheers!
