Back up creatorNeed to Back Up your site – this is so important these days.  Everday sites are getting hacked or what if you just make a mistake in updating your site, you download a software update and things go wrong?  I am a big fan of free but a bigger fan of easy so I paid for this pluggin.  My first update for WordPress was done on a “wing and prayer” as they say.  Not a 100% sure what to expect but I did know I wanted a easy back up to install if something went wrong.  Backup Creator is just that backup.  So easy and so many other uses…..cloning sites etc.  Click here to visit Back Up Creator
