Hello! I’m Katy, or Katykicker as most people know me online. This page is an opportunity for my readers to get to know me a little better.
Who is Katykicker?
I am a 29 year old wife and mother. I’m married, to Tom, and we have been together since 2007. We met when we worked together and were engaged in just 6 short months! Tom remarks from time to time that I don’t talk about him enough so just know that he is WONDERFUL! Tom is my rock, he supported me when I decided to quit my job back in 2013 when I was unhappy. He always sticks by me when I’m making a slightly insane decision and he has 100% unwavering confidence in me.
We got married back in 2011 and we have had a wonderful few years of married life already. I look forward to Tom coming home from work, even after all these years, and we are strong. We’ve had a few bumps along the way in our relationship, and our lives, but we are tough together and love spending time together.
After seven long years we finally have a daughter – Daisy Blue, born in March 2016. Daisy took so long to arrive that she feels even more precious to us, although I’m sure everyone who has a child after any length of time feels the same.
Our journey to have our daughter was a stressful one, followed by a stressful pregnancy and a dramatic birth. We are so blessed to have our little girl now and I love featuring her in posts on my blog. I even post a monthly update post (14 months and counting!). I also love to share lots of photograph of Daisy over on my Instagram.
Why did I start Katykicker?
Back in 2013 I was working a job I detested. One day I rang my husband, crying, to say that I was hating my work and I wanted to come home, permanently. He offered to cover the bills and support me while I worked out what I wanted to do. Fast forward 3 years and I now work for myself, full-time, earning a nice wage. I am able to reward my husband for his faith in me with a car, nice holidays, gifts and by generally having more financial security than we ever have before.
I started Katykicker because I was making money online and people wanted to know how. People do still constantly message me, asking for help, which I don’t mind but now I have somewhere to direct them!
I’m so happy knowing that I am able to share money making and saving websites and tips with my readers. I also love to share product reviews, frugal recipes, the odd craft and much more. I love being able to write about my life and help people in the process.
Where does the ‘Katykicker’ part come from?
This is a very, very old nickname that was given to me. I had a pair of black boots, that I loved, with pointy toes. One day I was showing my boots off to someone and accidentally kicked them in the eye! Ever since I’ve used the name on a variety of websites and it has stuck with me for more than 20 years now. I’ve even trademarked it!
I like to think that I also kick debt into touch, help people do the same and kick ideas over to other people who want to make and save money.
