Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

SEO | The Good the Bad and The Ugly

This week I thought I would show the good side of SEO and the bad. When doing SEO there is the good, the bad and the ugly.

When doing SEO for your blog, it’s important to know the different between the good and the bad. I will be detailing you the different between what is known as white hat SEO and black hat SEO.

Good SEO:

Good SEO is when you are doing white hat SEO for your blog. So you are not spamming or doing any bad practice that will penalize your site. In my experience I feel good SEO practice does help your site ranks more naturally and you don’t need to resort to cheating/spamming your way on SERP (search engine result page).

How to do Good SEO:

Doing Good/white hat SEO is really simple and not doubt you are doing a lot of these already:

I would also like to note that good white hat SEO will also double your traffic, so if you do care about your blog traffic – do these techniques. I will also like to note that these techniques will also stop your site being penalize on Google.

Bad SEO:

As you can expect, Bad SEO is the complete opposite of white hat. In my experience bad SEO is when the webmaster wants their website to be on the front page of Google using the fastest, quickest method possible. I once had a client who wanted to rank on page 1 of google with 50 different keywords! And he wanted it done within a month!! This client wouldn’t give me a budget (so I couldn’t advertise on Google AdWords) and he wanted it to be done ASAP.  I actually walked out as I wasn’t prepared to go down the black hat route and spam a site just for some fast result.

How to Do avoid Bad SEO:

  • Keywords stuffing. When every other sentences are using the keyword you want to rank for.
  • Not following the no/do follow rules, and only using do follow on all links.
  • Using SEO website directory. That a big no no.
  • Not writing fresh content.
  • Using invisible links. A link that is visible to the reader but will be picked up by the search engine.
  • Spam comments.
  • Had hard to understand site navigation.
  • Spam your social media platforms with links to your site.
  • Having fake news widget within your blog post.
  • Keywords stuffing your alt tags.
  • Keywords stuffing your meta tags and descriptions.
  • Using unrelated keywords that doesn’t relate to your site.

As I said last week, those Google bots are very clever and they will pick on the tiniest details, so don’t ever try to fool them. It will only bite back and it can get nasty.

Ugly SEO:

There also a term called, grey SEO. This is when you combined both good and bad SEO to get the result you want. It a grey area and I tend to avoid it. I believe Google is cutting down on this term and has started penalizing sites that go down this route.

Overall:

That is just a general summery of good and bad SEO, there are more details information online. But I wanted to show you the techniques that will stop your site being penalize and how you can easily improve your site SEO.

I will once again leave it as an open discussion on my comments, if you got any questions or if you are stuck: then feel free to ask.
