Monday I had a day off, it was supposed to be a fun catch up with my blog day after the weekend. Sadly I spent way too much time trying to figure out blog issues and recovering from a crazy weekend. Why oh why am I so stubborn and insist on trying to fix things myself. In the meantime let’s get happy with a Pink linen blazer and cream stripe skirt from Target
Blog Adventures and Page Speed
I promised myself after this weekend was over I would focus on my blog. What I actually intended was to re-start my Dominate SEO course and start applying all I learned. Instead I noticed my blog page speed was really off and I wasted a day trying to speed things up. Wasted sounds harsh but honestly why does everything take so long to fix.
I wish I could pinpoint when it happened. Usually very vigilant about load times all of a sudden it seemed to be taking close to 20 seconds. That is like the kiss of death. Ironically my home page and search pages load very quickly but individual posts are awful. Its a defer java parsing and many other issues problem. And it all sounds like greek right?
Speed Booster Solutions
After many a wasted hour I stumbled upon a solution with Speed Booster. Seemed to speed things up but it also took down my feature slider. Trade one issue for another. It is often a never ending saga. Oh dear blog when you are good you are very good but when you are bad you are horrid.
This is not going to defeat me, I will master this stuff if it kills me. So very stubborn and cheap Iyou handle your blog innards or contract out? If you do got any great and cheap resources?
Pink Linen and #Targetstyle
On a far more lighthearted note, spring/summer fashions are alive and well. My winter wardrobe has been packed away and I am although re-acquainting myself with some ole favs I also have some new additions I have been anxious to share. It’s about time right, lord Spring has been forever appearing.
Today I pulled off a new look I found in Florida. A pink linen blazer (similar but khaki )with a stripe skirt from Target. Such a perfect look for the office when the weather is fine. Paired with a pair of sandals I ordered from Shoe Dazzle I was feeling quite stylish.
Orleans Craft Beer Fest
I did have a fun weekend at the Orlean’s Craft Beer Fest. Kent and I were given a weekend pass to attend the Festival. They did an amazing job again this year. Moving to a Thursday to Saturday schedule was brilliant. It gives everyone including Organizers, vendors and Volunteers a chance to rest up on Sunday. Hopefully you were following my Inst Stories on the weekend and staying up to date on all the great beer.
Plus HELLO most important The Honest Heart Collective was headlining Saturday. Good lord they pulled off an amazing show.
