Blogging Tips

From time to time I would like to give tips to bloggers and this time I would like to tell everyone that making backups is important. If you have a WordPress blog, then it is important that you backup your MySQL database and your blog files. You can backup your database by using some plugins or you can login to your hosting administrative area and manually make a backup. Personally, I recommend using a plugin as it is a lot easier. You may actually want to use a plugin that will automatically make daily backups. To backup your blog files you will need to login via FTP and download your WordPress installation.
