Google Takeout now offers more support for those of you with a Blogger account and/or a Google+ page. Now through the Google Takeout service, you can export information contained inside of your Blogger account as well as information in your Google+ Stream or Google+ Circles. The Takeout feature is provided by The Data Liberation Front, a Google engineering team in charge of making it easier for users to move their data in and out of Google products.


For those of you who don't know, the Google Takeout service is an impressive service that lets you export data contained in your Google accounts. You can export data from Google+,Google+ pages, Blogger, Buzz, Contacts, Drive, Latitude, Pages, Picasa, Reader, Voice, and YouTube.

Google Takeout previously offered its services for your personal Google+ account, but now if you have a Google+ page set-up for your business, or websites, you can export the data from those as well. The new Blogger support allows you to export data from your entire Blogger account, or you can choose to export only a single page or blog. The data will be exported as an Atom XML file. Your Google+ pages will be exported as HTML files containing your posts and JSON files containing the circles on your page.

The Google Takeout service is like taking a trip down memory lane. Viewing files and data from the entirety of your Google accounts is very nostalgic. Looking back to your very first posts can be mind-blowing, seeing how far you've come and how far you've changed over time. I'd highly recommend you try it out.
