HOW TO BACKUP ALL YOUR BLOG POSTS, COMMENTS, PAGES, CATEGORIES AND TAGS

Hey readers, it’s only fair that I share some of the knowledge that I have gained as a novice in the blogosphere.

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).

50 SHADES OF BLOGGING (A RE-SHARE OF MY BEST POST WHICH HAS 200 LIKES)

Instagram

I’m feeling quite generous today so let me spread the knowledge that I have gained within my two years of blogging.

1.If you write about a serious or dark topic, break it up with a little fluff sometimes. Or write about something else. But don’t lose your focus. As for the rest, they don’t care as much as you think they do. That soul-baring post is probably only embarrassing to you.

2. If you have a post you’re afraid to make public, make it public anyway. It’s okay to run naked in public sometimes. You’ll feel freed.

3. You are going to have haters. It’s unavoidable. If you can’t handle people hating you or your blog, you have no business blogging.

4. If your blog starts getting popular, your haters will be more numerous and more vocal. It’s okay to have haters. Love your haters. They’re obviously obsessed enough with you to visit your blog and that increases your views.

5. Some people you thought were your friends or supporters are not. Be careful who you trust.

6. Nothing is too personal to write publicly about. There will always be someone who will be grateful you shared

7. Trolls are easily controlled. Just don’t approve their comments or send them to spam or trash.
