Click "save File" and then "OK"
You have now Backed Up your Blog. Remember that this will only save the posts you have currently on the blog, so you will have to back up the blog periodically. I recommend marking it on your calendar for at least every few months.
Now, we want to save the template. Again, a few easy steps to put your mind at ease.
First, click your Layout Tab, then "edit HTML" :

Super! I'm gonna do it now!
