I finally passed 7,000 views at some point during the night. WOW. I’ve been here at wordpress since early 2006. (blog posts older than that are copied from a previous blog on another blogging site, that as far as I know no longer exists)
You’d never know it by the look of things here but there were probably hundreds of blog posts I lost along the way when my original self-hosted wordpress blog went poof. Yes I was still too new to wordpress at the time to know that I could do backups. It was something I needed to learn the hard way.
Those of you who have been here awhile may agree with me. Make your export file backups frequently!
Congrats and thank you for the great advice. I am still new on the wordpress block. I will now be doing this today when I work out how.
