Why start a new blog? For a couple of reasons:
- Since 2009 when I started blogging, my life has changed a lot! I moved back to the U.S., got married, moved back to France and more. Starting up a new blog seemed to be right in line with this new chapter in my life.
- I really enjoy blogging and wanted to get back to it.
- I wanted a new place to share my life with friends and family.
- To sharpen my WordPress skills. Not as easy as it looks!
- Why not?
This blog is something I can be proud of, something to ground me, an outlet, a place to connect, a sounding board, and most of all, something fun! Maybe I wanted to prove to myself that I could actually DO this and gain loyal readers that have a genuine interest in what I have to say. Or maybe it’s because I want some sort of validation that I don’t get from the work I do in my day job. Or maybe it’s just because I wanted to embark on a new project – something fun and exciting that allows me to share my life with all of you. Whatever the reason(s), know that Oui In France is something I believe in and believing in yourself is half the battle in life…
Here are some posts that are coming soon:
What I miss most/least about life in the U.S., our wedding feature in Marie Claire’s Mariages magazine, why the post office is ridiculous, why McDonald’s is awesome in France, what’s more/less expensive in France, the problem with dog poop, Dagny’s switch to a raw food diet and a LOT more!
So as I get going, please bear with me if something doesn’t look right (new blogs aren’t easy!). Right now, everything is bare bones and I promise I’ll do my best to use all the cool features and beef things up. Subscribe to my RSS feed, won’t you? 😉 Oh, and if you’re reading this, would you please leave me a comment?
Until next time, be well….
