    So.... I know that SHSH Blobs are used to downgrade your firmware if anything goes wrong but I don't know how to backup my SHSH Blobs for my Ipod touch 3.1.3 3rd gen before i jailbreak with spirit

    You can't. Apple doesn't sign the firmware anymore. Which is needed to back up the blobs.

    You can still back them up, there's this program called AutoSHSH, (I assume you're on Windows), google it. Once you have it, you put your iDevice into Recovery Mode, instructions are in the software. It will save a file to your documents, and send your blobs to Cydia. IF you need to downgrade, you have to redirect your HOSTS file to saurik's server, it's pretty easy, again google the instructions on how to do that. Then, just do the normal "Shift + Restore" and click on your .ipsw file, then restore normally to it. I did it because I made the mistake of upgrading to iOS 4. It was relatively easy, remember, google is your friend...

    No you can't. It won't work. You can only back up shsh blobs that apple signs at the time. Also, I tried what you mentioned on my previous iPod and it didn't work.

    You'll have to restore to 4.0 because umbrella won't work either.
