My blog sucked…
I feel really happy today because I finally launched a first version of the official pro Your Life Your Choices blog!
It was not scheduled to happen today and it happened by chance. Early this afternoon, I visited my Weebly blog and I was shocked to see that there was nothing in my URL. It was a terrible surprise for me. I tried to access on my Weebly account to figure out what actually was the problem but I could not either access the account.
I stayed calme and I decided to send an email to the weebly support Help Desk to ask for help.
Fortunately they answered very quickly but. …Unfortunately their answer was the following:
Your account was in violation of our Terms of Service. So your site was shut down and your account was disabled. Sorry this happened out of the blue. The ban cannot be reversed.
See our TOS here:
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance and thank you for your support of Weebly!
Oh my God, what a shock!
I don’t know about what they are talking about and I feel like stupid because obviously I did something wrong but not in purpose. I provoked them to shut down my website!
I then visited their TOS site to check out what serious mistake I could possibly have done without my knowledge! Here is what I found:
From this list I assume that the only thing I could have done without paying any attention is the excessive advertising => put more than three banners in a page.
Anyway, the whole Weebly thing was a bad decision form the beginning. But I am terribly surprised because they just shut down the site without telling me anything!
But…Your Life Your Choices is still alive! Yeah!!
Besides the above bad story that happened to my blog, I feel really lucky. As I have recently explained in my article My adventure in Greece, I was working to move my blog from Weebly to a self-hosted WordPress Solution. I started the whole process of manually copying and pasting my posts and comments at the beginning of February. Early this week, I moved one of the last posts I have written and I wanted to keep making some changes to the look of the site.
Well, I didn’t have time to make the changes because today I was obliged to switch from the test platform to the production platform!
Can you believe it? I just saved all my content by chance.
It is unbelievable!
I wanted to share with you that story and welcome you to the new face of Your Life Your Choices.
I also wanted to say sorry to Hiten mainly because I lost the comment he left on my old site yesterday. After what happened today I didn’t have the time to save, restore and publish his comment on this site.
Here after the kind comment of Hiten for my article Should I finish it or not.
Thanks for commenting over at my blog. Your post reminded me of certain books I’ve bought in the past. I bought them based upon the good reputation of the author. However, once I started to read them, they were such a pain to read! Some books are like that. They can be difficult to read and/or we just can’t get into them. I usually end up leaving such books and then moving onto others.
Hiten, thank you very much for visiting my blog and commenting. I hope to keep in touch and I will follow you through your blog. Off course I invite you to follow me too!
What do you think about the new look? Do you have some recommendations for me?
Actually I invite all of you to follow me and discover my adventure in Greece, ideas tips and books that can change your life!
