That don’t impress me much….as Sex, Brexit and Fridges in Greenland

Any followers of Country Music might be hoping for a post on Shania Twain, singer of song of this name…apologies to her fans but this is not what this is about.

Like life, just going round in circles

I don’t normally write midweek blogs but I got involved in conversation today with someone  on the vexed subject of  how I use SEO. Those not familiar with the term may be thinking along the lines of some corporate post holder…like CEO, COO, CFO etc.  No, it means Search Engine Optimisation i.e.  how easily, (or not at all!) someone will find your blog post site.

The conclusion of the conversation was just that said person was bemused that I was not attempting to do it and that nobody will find my site!

As aficionados of SEO will know it is fair to say that without liberally sprinkling topical keywords I will remain an unknown to 99.99% of the population.

Actually that’s probably a good thing!

Well, as most of my subject matter never requires use of  words such as sex, Brexit or thankfully Covid,  these have little chance for a mention even once.

In fact if the advice I have been given is to be believed I should be slipping in these very words in my title and repeatedly in the message body like some kind of protest chant .

Realistically as the word ‘sex’ attracts a certain type of reader, they will then be disappointed with the lack of it in the content; Brexit will be mainly off-putting no matter what side of the ‘divide’  you are on,  and if you don’t live in UK  or Europe…you probably really don’t care.  Why would you?  and mention of Covid something that we likely do not want to read even more about, so this then means that these key words  will be as relevant to my blog  as needing a fridge in Greenland!

I was also told I should consider some long tailed ones…..keywords that is! I am getting out my tape measure now……. and to make sure I updated my slugs! Slugs, yeah well something along similar lines too, but don’t ask me to explain what they are…other than not something you find under a flowerpot!

Slugs, snails, and puppy dogs tails!

Happy days, and glad to be in obscurity 😁😁 And apologies again to all feeling very short changed by the title.

First Aid Kit…or Band Aid music

My itunes has a huge variety of music and I am always adding more of every possible genre. If my itunes account was being forensically examined in some future lifetime perhaps to try to match me to an era or interest…the musicologist would be baffled. The Cure, Lady Gaga, the Beatles , Blur, Mozart, The spice girls, Alan Jackson, Celine Dion and hundreds of others just happily co-exist. Nashville, Manchester, Liverpool and London…all on the same map page!

In the same way that we make personal friendships through chance meetings and opportunities..my music arrives equally randomly. Recently I was on a flight and perusing the on-board audio looking for Lady Antebellum and I came across First Aid Kit…I had remembered the name from my daughter talking about them….and so this was how I was introduced to them!

And as an aside, the award winning Lady Antebellum band got their name from the historical period before the civil war…the band had been doing a photo shoot in historical costume in houses of that same period. And First Aid Kit’s reason for their name…far simpler…they came across the term in an English dictionary (they are Swedish) and just thought it very aptly described what their music did!

If you haven’t listened to either of the above before as Country may not be your thing (..and it wasn’t mine)..then do give it a go. You will find them on you tube.

Enjoying this blog? I hope so. I try to make the content as varied as my itunes account!
