Where is the BlogAssist data stored on my computer?

After doing a clean install of Yosemite I want to copy the BlogAssist data from my Mavericks-clone but I can not find them.

In this section of the user-guide (from 2006! - quite likely outdated)

http://www.dejal.com/faq/blogassist/data

we are pointed to "~/Library/Preferences/com.dejal.blogassist.plist", but there is no such file.

I don't want to lose all the modifications I have made through the years.

Good point. Thank you for pointing this out. Since BlogAssist is sandboxed now, the data has been moved to a sandbox container.

I've just updated the FAQ answer:

BlogAssist is sandboxed, so the data is stored in its sandbox container, within its preference file.

The location is as follows, where "~" means your home directory:

"~ ▶ Library ▶ Containers ▶ com.dejal.blogassist ▶ Data ▶ Library ▶ Preferences ▶ com.dejal.blogassist.plist".

Or as a conventional unix path:

"~/Library/Containers/com.dejal.blogassist/Data/Library/Preferences/com.dejal.blogassist.plist".

If you are using BlogAssist Express from the Mac App Store, replace the "com.dejal.blogassist" with "com.dejal.blogassist.express" in both places, i.e.

"~/Library/Containers/com.dejal.blogassist.express/Data/Library/Preferences/com.dejal.blogassist.express.plist".
