Glamor Blog 2009

Dear English-speaking readers, this page is an automatic Google translation from a post originally written in French. My apologies for the weird sentences and the funny mistakes that could have been generated during the process. If you can read French, the original and correct version can be found here:

I can not believe it. Bubbles Underwater & Beyond is No. 2 in the ranking of 2009 blogs from the magazine Glamour, in the category "travel". What is nice is that it is the Internet users who voted. This allowed me to discover four other very nice blogs of globe-trotters, which I invite you to browse.

To start with Do not be so french, No. 1 in the ranking, and much more "glamorous" than mine, it must be admitted, since it is mainly fashion in New York.

My personal favorite is going to Japan through blue eyes: staggered, often fair and funny chronicles about everyday life in Japan, by a young Lille expatriate in Tokyo. I will take the time to go through more of his tickets, both interesting and tasty.

Lovers of India will feast with these 2006-2008 travel diaries baptized The tribulations of Antoine. Exotic at will, since it also takes us to Syria, Ethiopia, Kenya or Dubai ...

Finally, really apart, the Tricyle World Tour Michel: at 61, he has already traveled tens of thousands of kilometers pedaling ... A blog as amazing as endearing. At the moment, he is in Burma (Myanmar) and heading for Thailand.

Well, on the web page of Glamour, they made a mistake in their little titraille in red, and scored "Beauty Ranking" instead of "Travel Ranking" (EDIT-new visit made since: it's rectified!). Rest assured: I will not start writing editorial notes on trendy lipsticks or waterproof mascaras ...

  1. Bravo. All my congratulations. It's really deserved. I am very proud of you. And now, when someone will try to taunt me, I will say, "Yes, but I know the silver medal from the Glamor blog. "
    I watched the gold medal, really nice as a site. It is alert as everything and very refreshing. Note that your bubbles for freshness arrive on the first step.

  2. 😉 It's well deserved, and for me, you're the No.1!
    But if I am objective!
    I will go see others, thank you for the info!

  3. And ankles that swell, what's under the water? I imagine little buoys ...
    Well, I'll see the fourth winner. I liked the 3rd with his humor too quirky.

  4. @ Nono: I'll look fine, I swear, with buoys on my ankles ... Pfff! 😛
    Otherwise, me the same, I love the tone and humor of No. 3, Japan through blue eyes.

    @ Pit: That's really nice. 😀
    Well, well I think I only have to open a fan club ... 😆

  5. 😆

    Unbelievable!!! The subtle remarks of the "Furry Troll" do not fall into the basket of messages "waiting for moderation", unlike those of this other commentator hairy and yet hilarious whose name I will not say by pure goodness of soul ... 😛

    Nice to see you share my crush for the blog of Lille in Japan! 😉

  6. Do not really like Glamoor's readers.
    Put yourself in 2nd place ...
    I think it's because of the comments posted by your readers. Are not up to your articles 😈

    NB: The blog of the expat in Japan is excellent.

  7. I laughed a lot when I learned to be "nominated" in the selection of Glamor blogs. 😡 On the other hand, I did not know if I should be proud or ashamed of it. 😳

    In any case I also discovered your blog, and although not a diver (rather climber actually) I found it very nice and particularly well done. It makes me happy that it is reciprocal. Good luck, and wave if you come to dive on the side of the archipelago!

  8. Hi Alex, I'm glad to hear your note here! 🙂

    Ben what, it is super "glamorous" your blog, not blush, must assume! 😆

    I started to walk there and I tan all alone behind my screen reading your tickets. I loved the Japanese manual to learn French (so romantic), the predator of the mall, and this taste very Japanese for big cocks (hey, hey, with such a sentence, I do not dare to imagine Google queries which will soon come out). 😆

    Thanks for the compliments, anyway. For climbers, there are some famous places in Thailand, on the Ao Nang side (Railey East and West beaches, in the Krabi area). On the other hand, I am not very familiar with diving spots in Japan. If I come here one day, I do not think it will be to dive, but rather to discover these strange customs that you describe so finely ...

    Good luck too, and enjoy reading!

  9. Glamour ! I always said it!
    It is deserved. And it's good that the "real" journalists are recognized 😉
    You must work like crazy: your site is beautifully enriched, not to mention the fire fueled tickets. I do not mean to say that blogging feeds his man (his wife ...)
    So, we started to flash banner? Mmmm?
    Well, as your site takes 31 seconds to load and the average weariness among Internet users is fixed at 7 seconds, you know what you have to do? 😆
    Suffering from the same pain, I'm in it for a while and it's as boring as it looks ... 🙁

  10. Thank you Francis! 🙂

    I do not spin like crazy at the moment, I'm fine, I even a little up on the blog these days, in fact, since I had the "real" job (the one who feeds his wife and pay the rent) to insure ... I feed and enriched Small Bubbles Elsewhere rather when I insinuate in the wee hours of the night (but I know another who does the same with his blogueneries).

    For the banner, as I was unable to choose a visual and I was tired of being mocked by Alimata, I finally got down to this solution, which I use for a long time already on my other site Carnets d'Asie du Sud-Est (South-East Asian Diaries) (But I saw that the changing flash banner now had your favors too! 🙄) For now, it suits me well and it sticks much better to the theme of the blog. 8)

    The script I use is quite light, it does not slow down the page the most. In fact, which hinders the display of WordPress blogs, I have the impression, it is especially the scripts of plugins and themes. So I already restricted my plugins to those who are really essential, I fired the "gadgets".

    I find the Bloguen particularly long to load (more than Little Bubbles Elsewhere 😛), since you have relooked: all "dressing" takes a long time to appear. I tested, like you, the speed of display of my pages on dedicated sites, and until now I was happy with me, because I got less than 10 seconds (from where you go out this 31 seconds ???) 😯

    But all depends on many other parameters, including the type of connection, and the browser (between IE and FF or Safari, for example, it's amazing, the difference) ❗

    I think I will still try to lighten my load time a bit:
    - by reducing the number of tickets on the homepage (the script of my theme automatically reducing each image in vignette, it will make less requests)
    - by removing the videos on the side (that too, that smashes the display performance)
    Too bad, I'm going to sacrifice the "visual" side that I like at speed.

    Otherwise, have you tested a plugin style "Super cache" that creates pages in Html to cache them, which avoids relaunching php requests each time? I hesitate to use this thing. It seems to me a little gas plant.

    Good luck for the optimization of Bloguen !!! 😀

  11. Congratulations for this demonstration of "glamor" 🙂

    A great recognition, especially from a reference in the field.

    I came across your blog not coincidentally, I am not disappointed with the trip and I will repeat the experience.

    If by chance, you came to walk on mine, you will see a new mag 'will not be long to make his appearance.

    Competition for the good "old" Glamor?


  12. @Mareen: Thank you for your little word. I feel very far from the "glamouritude" to say the truth, but it's still nice to have been selected in this "ranking". I will take a look at your blog when I return because the connections are a little slow, Koh Lipe.
