As part of hoovering up old blogs and content before more disappear, I'm stuck with the most difficult blog in terms of format;
. Is there an efficient way of saving both the posts and the comments to make publicly available elsewhere.
I am gradually moving many years of blog posts, blogs, diary entries and other materials into one www.blogger.com blog. My problem is this particular old blog, set up and hosted by the BBC
as part of their web expansion project in the last decade. At some point, as these blogs have been archived for years, they'll be wiped one day.
Is there a neat way of moving all of the material over to either my blogger.com blog I'm building, or something else I can control? Cutting and pasting the posts, and moving the pictures, into the blogger.com blog could be done though this introduces inevitable manual errors. The number of comments is a magnitude larger, and I can't see how I can move those into blogger.com comment format. Or should I create a new blog (wordpress?) for importing?
An additional consideration is that, though the posts and the pictures within are all mine, the comments were made by other people (though no-one used their real name). I'm not sure if there is any legal complication over ownership here.
I've tried to contact the BBC but I didn't get a reply; it's likely, from other knowledge of their web projects, that the staff who worked on this left the BBC a long time ago.
