    Yes you can atleast save the content use the Way Back Machine for grabbing old content it's the archive of the entire internet, as long as your blog was relevant you should be fine, they normally have atleast a few saves.

    contact their customer support and ask if it's possible for them to send you backups of your sites

    talk with their support may be they did only suspend account or may be they have backup on their server. So far i saw they have weekly backup so may be they have something.

    I too believe contacting support is your best bet. If they actually backup weekly, as seopencil found they claim in their website, then you may be able to get a deal (maybe pay your due balance + some $) and get your info back.

    Try to get a cached version of it at least... but better do it fast before it disappears...

    They rarely hard delete it. I also recommend contact their tech support, sweet talk them and give them exactly what they want. Also as mentioned above, wayback machine and Google Cache.

    Yes, unless you can automate the task somehow.
