    Just getting things rolling with WordPress. Have plans for lots of sites.
    Have WP installed in a local XAMPP on a laptop.
    Want to develop locally while posts are being made online.
    How can I push my local site and still keep the online posts?
    I did peruse the forums before asking. Hope this inquiry is not misplaced.

    here is how I would approach it...

    Just before I was about to publish the new site, i would do an export from the exisitng live site, import it into the local version, make sure everything works/looks good, then use a migration plugin like Backupbuddy. That way I could overwrite the existing site, and make sure I have the latest post included in the new site.

    Hope it helps,
