#100HappyDays: Day 17

Start a blog they said.

You’ll get lots of free stuff, they said!!!

While I started blogging long before it started paying people’s bills, there are core elements of the trade that never change—like the need to back your stuff up!

#100HappyDays—Day 17—VaultPress

Since migrating to WordPress some years back, I’ve tried a few solutions for archiving my work.

BackUpWordPress was good until it bogged my server down enough for my webhost to kill the automated service and slap me with a warning. For a while, WordPress Backup to Dropbox worked too, but as your site grows, it voraciously consumes what little free space you have in your Dropbox.

You ultimately get what you pay for and after finding a number of old images mysteriously absent from my blog, I thought it was time to invest in a better solution.

Enter VaultPress, a paid backup service built into WordPress’ Jetpack plugin. It backs my site up with every change I make. It’ll automatically restore my site with the press of a button. And I can spend more time working on my site and less time rebuilding posts when things go wrong!

And that’ll do until I renew my site 😊
