Paul, one of the VaultPress Safekeepers

I share lots of organizing tips and lifehacks on my blog, Organize to Revitalize! You’ll also get a whiff of my personality, too. :) I can be a little silly sometimes (read: funny – hopefully!), but all in all, I really try to share info that’s helpful to others. I know how difficult it can be to get things in gear, so whenever I come across a shortcut or a simple way to do something, I post it. Sometimes, I share things I’ve learned from the mishaps in my personal life or things that come up when I’m helping clients get more organized (no one is ever named, I promise!).

When I first started blogging, I was using Blogger. It’s really simple and easy to use, but after a while, I wanted a platform that was a bit more robust. I also wanted killer themes and to have a domain name without “Blogspot” in it. WordPress offered me that and more, so I jumped ship and haven’t looked back since.

The thing I most value about my WordPress blog: plugins! I love that my blog can be ramped up a notch with a simple plugin. The right plugin can make you look like a supah stah. ;)

I got interested in VaultPress for two reasons: hackers and stability. I had the lovely experience of being, shall we say, visited, by hackers and I can’t say I enjoyed it much. I also wanted a way to keep my site stable and on track. I remember reading that I could get a Golden Ticket, so I made my request, and then a year later, it arrived! Well, it was actually 6 months later, but it felt like a year. It was well worth the wait. :)

I recommend that everyone on WordPress get the standard plugins, like Akismet and All-in-One SEO pack. But, if you really want to be a serious blogger, WP Editorial Calendar is amazing. It will really help you keep up with your posting schedule and plan future posts. I also like Thank Me Later (a great way to say “Thanks for leaving a comment. Come back anytime!”) and TinyMCE Advanced (visual editor on steroids).
