Are you the owner of the blog to be downloaded? – Anurag Oct 18 '12 at 13:13

Just my two cents ... Winhttrack?

Looks very good, I'll try it! If it works, I'll mark yours as accepted answer. – robert_nachos Aug 14 '11 at 22:29
Well, I usually use this application to download from Artofmanliness and such blogs. Saves the site completely, so I have a browsable archive on my laptop ... I can read useful stuff on the bus/train. :)) – Shiki Aug 15 '11 at 12:31

Perl has several good modules for doing this.


Both can be found on http://search.cpan.org

From the command line, when this tool is called, you can recursively grab all files in the directory by typing wget -r sitename.

Wget: http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/

As for out of the box software that you can use on a GUI, I am of no help.

For the owners of the blog... Google provides the functionality to download the entire blog (posts, comments, the whole nine yards).


In case of content from other people's blog, copyright violation comes into the picture.

Use an adblocker add-on in your browser to remove the ads.

Then, use the "save as" feature in your browser to save the page in HTML.

I guess he means downloading the whole blog. – slhck Aug 14 '11 at 21:40
Yes I do. This blog has 2,578 posts. :-) I'm not doing them all by hand. – robert_nachos Aug 14 '11 at 22:25
