    I use wordpress.com, can i still use FTP software to backup my blog? If so, how? I am using http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Backups, but have not found any answers yet. Thanks.

    That link that you gave is for those running the normal WordPress software that you can download from WordPress.org. We run a different platform here called WordPress MultiUser.

    You can export out your posts and comments using the XML exporter. That’s covered a bit here as well as the original announcement.

    You may also want to take a few minutes and read the FAQ on teh differences between the two different sites. It may give you some insight on things around here.

    Hope this helps,
