Happy Monday, or a happy return to the work week. Man I am not sure where my weekend went, but all of a sudden it’s Monday and I had not even pre-prepared my post. Guess that means It really was a break this time. Starting the new week with a splash of colour and breaking the so called age rules. That’s right that is totally a crop top on a 50 Year old, or 50 plus actually. Are you a rule breaker or a follower?
Crop Tops and Breaking the Rules
Today apparently I am breaking all of the rules and not just the fashion ones. Yes I am wearing a crop top and it;s lace and I don’t care. I mean I care but only to the extent of do I feel good and do I think it looks OK. Truth be told people are far more shocked by lime green/yellow neon pants then they are the top. Yep I am a gal of the 80’s and 90’s, I love neon.
So what other rules am I breaking, well not one you will notice if you are reading my post now. Intrigued? Well I posted without a full post today. I didn’t do my proper SEO, the pictures did not have alt tags and I didn’t make sure Yoast was green. Oh yeah and I also did not fill out my feature image not the social warfare images. And guess what the world did not end. Now It’s a horrid thing to do if I am trying to grow my blog I know, but it was what this little head needed early this morning.
Value of SEO in your Posts
Blogging as a business has a ton of rules associated with it. I get that honestly I do. This little space though still does belong to me and sometimes you need to decide what is actually working for you. Today I decided that time needed was better spent on something else (temporarily of course). I do take this space very seriously and that’s why I am back a few hours later fixing and correcting the “broken rules”
Now here is a question, from an SEO point of view does editing the post to add in the SEO features have a positive or negative impact? or even any impact? Once a post is published do changes work to effect the rating? All my SEO courses seem to indicate that you can create better value in a post after. Google likes edits.
Instagram apparently does not, I read that edits in your Instagram posts do not help you in the algorithms later. So one more reason I live to blog not for social media I guess. I kind of prefer the kinder, genler more forgiving options.
Todays Neon Look of the Day
I found these pants at J Crew (similar ones)a few years ago and fell in love. The colour, the style, the material, it all came together like a perfect storm, in a good way. You do need to be careful when styling them because the colour can be overwhelming. Normally I stick to white tops or black tops and let the pants shine.
The lace top was from Forever 21 (similar style) but I am also wearing another bandeau top underneath. I am seriously not that extreme in my daring looks. I also wear the linen Cardigan I found at Winners. A great replacement from my lace back cardi I completely wore out. ( and yes even my fitbit strap is neon)
The Paisley shoes were a Nine West find down in Orlando several years ago. Sad fact, there was another pair in a blue paisley that i did not pick up and I am still regretting that non-purchase.
My Yosa Necklace is a fav and on repeat (often)
