It is A Monday and yet I am still full of smiles. Honestly with this awesome Coat of Many Colours who wouldn’t be smiling right? Plus I think I am finally better and off to work and my blog is back. Good lord it has been a long hard week for me. Massive flu/cold and my blog gets SSL issues and goes completely down for almost five days. YIKES
SSL and Getting it Right
Full disclosure I am speculating as to what happened but it is a pretty educated guess. I noticed a problem on my blog with my RewardStyle. Pictures were not loading and after some investigation it appeared my site was pulling HTTP and HTTPS. Well that was a bit of an issue.
Initially I wasn’t too worried. I had an SSL Certificate, I was protected. Then I noticed my url had an exclamation mark not a padlock. Holy Frack folks, looks like I installed the ssl but apparently because I did not seek professional help I messed something up.
Not only did I mess up the installation, once I purchased a positive ssl and a dedicated IP i created a host of problems. Improper installations create massive problems. My punishment a blog down for five days while a host of people tried to get things working. Now I start rebuilding a weeks worth of unavailability.
Moral of the story, focus on your strengths. My strength is in my posts and my social. I need to leave tech stuff to the teckkies, or take a course.
Marshalls for the Win
Let’s talk style now because I am feeling stylish. Heck I am almost even feeling Spring Stylish. Today I took a column look, basic black tank and pants and umphed it up.
Favourite pieces jazzed up for the season. My Giant Tiger Ponte Pants are seasonless and paired with an H&M Tank creates the perfect base. I wanted the coat to stand out. A recent find at Marshalls and one I plan on showing off regularly. A fun statement necklace and cool shoes complete the look.
