Download and backup Windows Live Space blog to your computer

Microsoft has announced that they would shutdown their blogging platform Windows Live Spaces and migrate all users to Wordpress, which is not exactly a bad move as Live Spaces was a limited blogging platform.

The 30 million bloggers of Windows Live Space will be now promoted to migrate their blog to Wordpress when they login to their account. The Wordpress support team has set up a page detailing the steps required to make the migration. But before you make the move, I would suggest downloading your entire blog to the hard disk for backup, just to be on the safe side.

LSSaver is a simple tool that makes this easy.


Just enter your Live Space username and click on the Get button to retrieve all blog entries. You can then browse through the tree structure and choose the entries you want to download. Once a blog entry is checked, it's content will appear on the right part of the window. This allows you to view the entry to make sure it is the one you wish to backup.

To save the selected blogs, you simply click the Save button.

There are a few limitations:

  • Your blog must have Public access as login with password is not supported. You can temporarily grant Public access to your blog, save it with LSSaver and then reset the access.
  • You cannot select blog comments, all comments of a post are saved together if the post is saved.
  • Currently, only HTML format is support as saved file.
  • The tool does not support saving of albums and photos.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
