How to start an expat blog

Wooohoooo, you’re moving abroad!! I bet you can hardly contain your excitement!

Then moving day finally comes and all the prep work you’ve put into the giant step of moving abroad is actually happening. You’ve now arrived in your new country. You’ve done it! You’re adjusting. You’re feeling good.

You’re also toying with the idea of starting an expat blog. You love reading others’ blogs and want a space on the web to call your own.

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.

Here’s my guide on how to start an expat blog!

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!

Survey results are in!

The Oui In France reader survey is now closed and the results are in!

If you’d told me back in 2012 when I started the blog that by the beginning of 2016 I will have posted over 440 posts and written consistently twice a week, I wouldn’t have believed you. The time, energy and commitment that goes into maintaining a blog would have seemed insurmountable. But here we are in 2016. Oui In France has grown with each passing year, thanks to you readers, and it was time for your feedback!

So let’s get to the results!
