A True Breakdown About SEO

seo image

I will be the first to mention that SEO (Search Engine Optimization) doesn’t exactly require the work of a rocket scientist.  While there are plenty of different aspects that affect where you show up on the SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages), I wouldn’t classify it as a “hard” job.  With that said, it certainly isn’t easy either.  It’s tedious.  It’s time-consuming.  It’s meticulous.  Business owners have enough responsibilities to handle on a daily basis, that worrying about the online presence of their business certainly falls down the to-do list.  And that’s where an SEO strategist comes into play.

When it comes to making your selection for your online marketing company, agency or representative, make sure your research is thorough...

Happy Friday, my peeps!  As I have happily hopped back into wedding mode since purchasing my dress earlier this week, I have been back on track searching the internet for anything and everything to help me get this massive shindig of mine in order.  Today, my photographer sent me a site I wish I had found earlier- Capitol Romance: A Creative Cure to DC’s Wedding Bore.

This is a spot for the “off the beaten path” type of bride- like me! I am all about trying to do things as NON-traditionally as possible...

An Annual Event for a Wonderful Cause


This weekend is one of my favorites of the year.  Not only will I get to be outside enjoying the gorgeous weather, on a golf course, with good times… but a group of close knit friends are getting together to celebrate the life of someone taken from the world far too soon.  James Way Edmonds was a very kind friend, brother, son and person.  He is missed every single day by many, and his loved ones gather for a Golf Tournament in his name each year.  The James Way Classic is an incredible opportunity for people to show their support and to help raise money for The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The AFSP is an organization working to understand and prevent suicide through research, education and advocacy. Suicide is a very serious issue that has been on the rise...

A Little Ghetto Genius Love

ladies shopping

So in my journey to find good content online for readers over at inreads, I came across a blog that is right up my alley- Inside the Mind of a Ghetto Genius.  It is a blog with offensive language, hysterical posts and an incredibly LARGE following of over 180 thousand.  When I reached out to J-Wunder, the creator and lead writer, I offered my fantastic blogging services to write a guest post in an attempt to challenge myself in my tone and diction.  J gave me an assignment to write about the one thing I hate most as a female- SHOPPING.

J-Wunder loved it and posted my blog this morning to his popular blog. I am very honored and appreciative to have had the opportunity! Check out my words on the Ghetto Genius blog below!
