Right, if you’ve found your way here, then you are presumably unsure of how to save the blog articles you’ve published on your author webpage. Well, it’s fairly straightforward – log in to your Mybestseller account, open your website, and copy the articles you want to save and paste them into a document which you then save on your computer.
If this sounds confusing to you, don’t worry, we’ll walk you through the process step by step!
Step 1: Go to your profiles
The first thing you need to do is log in to your Mybestseller account and click on “My profiles” in the left-hand menu. It looks like this:
Clicking here will show you all the different pen names you’ve used to create books in this account. If you’ve created a website for one of these authors, it’ll show up as a clickable option in the “Operations” column. Click on it to access your author webpage.
Step 2: Select the blog posts you want to save
Your published blog posts will appear in the center of your author webpage. You can actually copy text directly from here by highlighting (assuming the blog is short enough to appear in its entirety), but doing so might cause some formatting issues when pasting the text somewhere else. To avoid potential hassle, we recommend clicking the title of the blogpost to edit its contents:
You can then copy the entire blogpost by highlighting the text and hitting control + C (or Command + C on Mac). Alternatively, right click on the highlighted text and click “Copy”:
Step 3: Save the article on your computer
Once you’ve copied the text, open a blank document using your word processing software of choice, such as Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, or OpenOffice. Paste the text in the document (control/command + V) and save it. Your blog article is now safe and ready to be uploaded elsewhere, should you wish to do so.
If you’d like to continue blogging somewhere else, Blogger or Medium are both solid options, though there are countless blogging services out there if you don’t like either of them.
