Do the following to link your project to the repo that you've created in step 1:
git remote add origin https://github.com/youraccount/repositoryname.git
7. Push changes
You can decide which branch you wanted to push but initially, you'll have one branch, which is called
git push -u origin master
Or if you have an existing branch, just replace
