Well how about that? My little old blog made EasyJet's 2011 Ultimate Paris Travel Blogger List! I wouldn't have even known had someone not emailed me about it. Thanks Easyjet!
It reminds me of the time my previous blog was selected as one of the Best France Blogs...and I was described in the byline as a sassy gay (male) blogger. I found it pretty hilarious at the time - though I guess it was an easy assumption to make if you just skimmed my blog. I posted as Sam, was pacsed (back before the PACS was as popular as it is now) and I have to admit I was also fairly cantankerous.
Since moving to Paris though, I haven't really done much to publicize my writing. In many ways, this blog is still semi-private and for a long time I asked people not to link to it on their blogs. In part because in the beginning I didn't want Fab to find it, but also because what I was going through was so personal. So it's kind of an odd feeling to think that now random people are coming across what I write. But I guess I don't really have anything to "hide" anymore and maybe this is just the push I needed to take things more public and start building up my readership again. How about you guys? Do you actively promote your blog? Or does it just serve to chronicle your life for family and friends?
It's funny, I have never in my life been able to maintain a diary or a journal, but here I am going on six years of continuous blogging. Internets, you are a wonderful thing indeed!
