Yikes what have I done? When I started this blog it occurred to me that hosting images in my Photobucket account was a good idea, an intelligent plan. Well guess what? Turns out this is not so smart when it comes to site errors and page loading time. I’ve only recently learned about the do’s and don’ts of HTML on my pages.
So I’ve been madly running my blog over various online HTML checkers and the results have been dismal. Admittedly I’m no expert and my current free WordPress theme is riddled with errors and warnings.
I’m saving like crazy to buy a WP Premium theme that I’ve fallen in love with, however before I commit to such a large expense I want to tidy up my pictures and posts. Slowly I’m improving my writing skills and correcting HTML code is on the up and up but Google is punishing me. My blog has dropped millions of places in rankings in only a week due to broken image permalinks.
Hello Google I’m trying to be a good citizen and this is my reward. BooHoo! I feel just like a falling star that has come crashing down to Earth. I’d prefer not to wish Google happy New Year because my 2014 is already looking bleak. Starting now I intend to learn a word a day.
As for the lovely WP community I hope yours is a good one.
