    Register a blog and set it to private.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    Then create XML export files periodically and import them into it.

    1. Log into the Main blog, go to Tools → Export, and download the XML (WXR) file to your computer.
    2. In the Backup blog, go to Tools → Import → WordPress, and upload the file you downloaded in step 1. After you upload the file, you can choose the option to Download & import file attachments if you want to move your media files.
  3. if i export content from the main blog, it's not that the content will disappear from my blog right?

    An export file is a copy of content only.

  5. phewks! it worked! thanks so much! last question, will i need to be exporting from time to time or since i didn't put an end date, will future posts automatically be exported?

    When you do the next import the software will recognize which posts are new and add them.
