8. Create a Brand New Blog, click the Big Orange: (GET STARTED) button.
9. USE A DIFFERENT EMAIL OR CREATE A NEW ONE, when registering this new blog.
10. Fill in applicable info. For blog name I’d keep it simple like: YourBlogBackup.wordpress.com so you won’t forget in the future.
11. After it’s created, log into the new blog.
