Can you imagine waking up one morning and your WordPress blog was gone? This might not ever happen, but after spending countless hours of hard work creating your blog it only makes sense to back it up.
From your dashboard go to tools and click on export.
Click on the first choice: Export, Create an XML file containing your posts and comments for you to save or import into another WordPress blog. Free.
It will take you to a page that says, Choose what to export– choose All Content.
Click on Download to Export at the bottom of page.
Click ok if you get a prompt. This will take you to where you want to save the WordPress file. Create a new folder in your documents, or use an existing to save your WP blog.
I Recommend using Dropbox to save important files. This is where all your chosen data and pictures are stored in cyber space. This means if your computer blows up tomorrow all your files are safe and accessible from any computer. AND, it means no more emailing important files to yourself!
Note: The WordPress file will not look like your blog, it’s nothing but code. This is the code you’ll need if you ever want to import (move) your blog.
