I've had issues with my WordPress.org blog and I've basically given up for now and moved on to plan B when I found a good value hosting package (plan B was formed as a result of looking at a Google ad as I browsed for a fix and dagnabbit, I think I've thought of it).

To get around it, I'll drive traffic to the other wordpress hosted site (it's really cheap for the first year) which will be redirected to the main site...

However, when I make updates to one blog, I'd like it to export to the other blog (for seo purposes) as the blog on my main website I'm having trouble with is well and truly integrated into the site. Also, the main site can now be used as a hub for all of my content whereas the second site can be specific to a particular niche I need to target.

If I can't automatically import and export xml files upon scheduling or publishing of a post? I'm thinking perhaps there is a widget I can install but the issue is widgets aren't working one of the sites so I think it will have to be code...
. Is it possible to do with html?

html, is markup language, eg. it doesn't 'do' anything.

in order to 'do' things you need a scripting or programming language, most commonly php.

I've read on your other post that you now actually have installed WP on a new domain, good step. Now you need to learn about plugins. You can find plugins at wordpress.org that can import .xml files and display them when and where you schedule them.

I'd suggest that you spend some free time reading thorough the topics here: [webmasterworld.com...] and especially the first one at [webmasterworld.com...]

Before you invest hours trying to figure out everything, a very basic How-To is made for beginners at [codex.wordpress.org...]
