GOOGLE READER IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE, BUT HERE IS AN EASIER METHOD FOR SAVING YOUR BLOGS FROM ANY SITE.
ITS FREE & SIMPLE TO USE.

Once you determine your RSS feed link do the following:
Get Google Reader HERE
If you already have a Google account, getting Reader should be fairly simple. If you do not have a Google account you will need to sign up for one & then get Reader.
Once you have your Reader account, log in & go to the main Reader page.
You should see a red “Subscribe” button to the left top of your page.

Being new here, I so appreciate your easy to follow tips! Thanks for this one. I have all of my Lschmoopie posts protected now from Open Salon.
i am so glad you were able to recover them. while i do back up the site here (all blogs are saved), i still encourage people to back up their work on a more personal level.
What's to say but Thank You! Jeremiah
Lorianne have you saved Jeremiah's OS account?
I am sitting on hot coals because with all the migration going on OS might close down tomorrow.
Pleas send me the link for backing up.I lost it.
I had saved it on FB but when deleting stuff,it got lost,too.
There are only a few hours left in which to do it.
I bought a new device yesterday but it will not help OS running and that would mean loosing all I have done and communicated so far.
It works like a charm, thank you so much.
