The two easy steps to follow in exporting your content to another blog or platform.
1. Go to Tools and
2. Then Export in your WordPress.com dashboard to download an XML file of your blog’s content. This format, which is called a WordPress eXtended RSS or WXR, contains your posts, pages, comments, categories, and tags.
(See the screenshots below for further understanding).
Note that this will ONLY export your posts, pages, comments, categories, and tags; uploads and images may need to be manually transferred to the new blog. The current version of the WordPress.org installation gives you the option to import uploaded files.
If the size of an export is sufficiently large, WordPress technicians will process it separately and send you an email message with a download link once the export is complete. The link will contain a download of a .zip file containing multiple files. This ensures the completeness and fastest performance of the export process. Sometimes this approach will be used even for small export requests where the total size of the site being exported from is sufficiently large. The download link will expire after several days, so you should download your export file to a local copy as soon as you receive the link.
If this process is too techy for you, you can just chill out and not bother yourself because;
If your blog is hosted here at WordPress.com, the tech wizards handle all necessary backups. If a very large meteor were to hit all the WordPress.com servers and destroy them beyond repair, all of your data would still be safe and they could have your blog online within a couple of days (after the meteor situation died down, of course).
