INTRODUCING THE HEYOKA HIDEOUT

Just as I finished sharing my Southwest Pilgrimage with you, I headed back to Los Angeles to work with a few clients and spend some time getting to know some new artisans that I have recently connected with.  What started as a one week trip ended up as three, and there was no time for me to check in with the blog while I was away.  But I have so much good stuff from my trip to share with you!!!! I had some amazing studio visits with Lovecraft Leather, Henry Duarte, Kieley Kimmel and All Roads and they were all so inspiring.

One of my favorite parts of this LA trip was working and hanging out with the Heyoka Leather ladies of the canyon.  I’ve written about these bad ass ladies before and their amazing handcrafted leather, but this time I get to share their latest venture with you: The Heyoka Hideout.  For the past few weeks, I helped these ladies create what will now be their studio/showroom and store in Topanga Canyon.  They acquired a great space right in the heart of Topanga and transformed the space into their ideal workshop and lifestyle store.  I felt so honored and blessed to be able to help them pull this together and am so proud of how everything turned out for their opening this past Saturday.  The Heyoka Hideout is a true reflection of their combined style and showcases their work alongside other artisans that they have come to know along their path including Daughter of the Sun, Folklorica, Naked Eye Beauty, All RoadsWild at Heart Vintage, Levi’s Vintage Clothing, Bandit Brand, Leslie Crow Jewelry and so many more to come.  This is only the beginning for The Heyoka Hideout, stay tuned for more as they take over my favorite part of LA, Topanga Canyon.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
