The lovely Paulie of PaulieLovesFood nominated me for The Sunshine Blogger Award, so un grand merci goes out to her! What is the award all about? As Paulie writes, “This nomination is from bloggers to bloggers. The award is given to those who are inspiring and bring sunshine into the lives of their readers and fellow bloggers.” Blogging is nothing without the community, so read on to see my answers to her questions and to see who I nominated.

How to start an expat blog

But you’re still dragging your feet because it’s item 46 on a never-ending to-do list. You’re full of excuses. “There are so many blogs out there already… will mine be any good?” you wonder. “Ugh, I don’t have the time,” you say. And maybe the excuse holding you back the most: “I don’t know how to start!”

If you’re stressing over how to start an expat blog or a blog in general, let me help you with that.

Blogging mistakes I made when I first started Oui In France (and a few things I got right)

Blogging mistakes I made when I first started Oui In France (and a few things I got right)

Oui In France is over 4 years old now, and when I started blogging, I didn’t have much of a vision for the blog except “just get started and see what happens.” I often learned things as I went along — and still do. Sometimes it’s best to just take action and get started because if you wait until everything is perfect and you are 100% ready, you may never actually start. But looking back, there were some mistakes I made along the way (and probably others I still make) so I’m sharing those with you today. Maybe you’re a blogger or on the fence about starting a blog.

Learn from my mistakes!
