Katy Widrick

Blogger Katy Widrick is passionate about keeping fit and weight loss. So much so, she’s turned her inspiring blog, katywidrick.com, into a social media guide for healthy living. Through trial, error, perseverance, and commitment, Katy shed 40 pounds over 18 months back in 2008. She’s a television producer by day who trains for triathlons by night.

“Silly Tater Tot was a blog about my journey through weight loss and healthy living while starting a new job and being a newlywed,” says Katy. “As my life changed, so did the focus of the blog. In March 2010, I re-launched my site as a social media guide for healthy living. I offer advice to people who want to make healthy changes, and share information about building community through the web and social media.”

Katy’s personal site has been on WordPress since March 2010. It’s a compendium of personal writing, tips, and inspiration on getting healthy and staying that way. It’s not so much a blog, but a vibrant community of people helping one another to meet their fitness and food goals. When you ask Katy, she’ll let you know she’s in it for the love.

“I love the fact that I can share my thoughts, opinions, struggles, and successes and connect with so many people all around the world,” says Katy. “It’s inspiring and humbling at the same time.”

Katy started using VaultPress on the advice of a friend.

“I’d been backing up my site using a WordPress plugin, but it was taking up a lot of space on my database and didn’t back up uploads, plugins or themes,” says Katy. “I started researching possible solutions, all while blogging about the search, and found VaultPress. Around the same time, a blogging friend of mine had gone through a major crash, in which she lost all of her images and many posts, and she told me that she’s recently started using VaultPress to prevent anything from happening in the future.”
