The Liebster Award!

Yay! My blog has been nominated for the Liebster Award for the first time by Gloria of Jugglingmother.
Here’s her blog:  http://www.jugglingmother.net/

What is a Liebster Award? 

The Liebster Award is conducted by bloggers for new bloggers to gain appreciation and recognition for their work. It’s a great way to connect to many bloggers and build connection with each other. It’s super exciting!

So, I made some research about the award from my side. Turns out that the Liebster Award has some German origins as the word “Liebster” comes from Germany. And, there are some rules that need to be followed.

The Rules

  1. You have to thank the blog that nominated you
  2. You have to answer the questions asked by the blog that nominated you
  3. You have to nominate 11 other new bloggers
  4. You have to set new questions for your nominees

It’s kinda cool since you get to know other bloggers and build awesome relationships with them!
So, the questions that Gloria set up for me are:

  • What country were your born in?

I was born in Mauritius, an amazing tropical island located in the Indian Ocean.

  •  Are you an animal lover?  If so, what kind?

I am a pet lover! I loved every animals, it’s fascinating to see them. My actual pet is a Doggy, named Prince.

  •  Is blogging what you thought it would be?

Indeed, blogging did turn out like I was expected. I blog because I love to do it :’)

  •  How many cars have you owned?

None, and I have the full intention to change that!

  •  What is your favorite dessert?

I would say every single dessert where the name “chocolate” is involved.

  •  How many hours a week do you devote to your blogging?

Blogging is not work for me. It’s not that I need to sit down and blog for that number of hours. I blog when I get inspiration. I blog when I want to do it. I blog when I feel that I need to do it.

When you love doing something, there are no conditions attached to it. You just do it! :’)

  •  Would you rather play a sport or watch one, which sport?

I would say both! I love playing Badminton and watch Football match!

  •  What is a favorite childhood memory?

My favorite childhood memory would be, every single time my brother and I invented and played new games, with our only worry- to reach home in time to not miss Tom & Jerry!

  • Which Social Media is your favorite and why?

Facebook is definitely my favourite social media right now, since Facebook has the largest number of audience and interaction with your audience is much more easier.

Facebook helps to build new relationships and maintains the existing ones.

  •  What is the most dangerous, daredevil activity you have ever tried?

The devil inside me hasn’t awaken yet!

  •  What is the longest job you have ever held?

The time I was doing my internship!

Okay, enough of me now! Here’s the 11 new bloggers I have nominated:

My bad experience with Wix.com

A week ago, I decided to build a free website for myself. Since I wasn;t getting the templates that I want from WordPress, I decided to use Wix to build the website for free. I read about some of the reviews and was satisfied with its popularity.

-I SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE THAT

  • Error on website

1 hour after published the website online, I got “ERROR” when I tried to view it again. First, I thought that there was a technical error on Wix and that the team was fixing it. After 1 hour, I could access it.

Then again, the next day same error on the website.

  • Some content do not appear

On my blog section, I added a subscription box so that people could could subscribe by email. That content kept not appearing on the page. I had to refresh the page each time to get the subscription box appear.

  • You can’t upload unlimited photos

When I was writing my first blog post on the website, I got a pop-up from Wix to not upload lots of pictures else the website will become heavy. So, I had to limit my choices to uploading only few images.

I hated that!

  • Google hates Wix

Yes! I do think Google hates Wix too, because I have done everything to optimize my website. I did everything that Wix told me so that my website appears high in search engines. But, still it didn’t work. Though my website was live, Google said that my website doesn’t exist!

How frustrating is that! When I was sharing my website URL, no one could access it.

  • It takes forever to load

My blog page took so many minutes to load the content. It took so much time that at some point, I had to close the browser and open it again. I don’t know if it’s because the wix only focus on the layout and design of its websites, that it forgot to look out for convenience!

  • It is not mobile-friendly

This is what triggered me to delete my website and my account with Wix. I never thought that it wouldn’t be mobile friendly. I couldn’t use the website nor write my blog posts via my smartphone. I had to be only on my laptop to be able to use Wix. It was so not cool at all!

 

That’s it! And, I switched back to my WordPress.

I hope that helped! Share with me in the comments 🙂
