My blog posts frequency

quality-featured

I’ve been blogging daily since a couple of months now, but eleven days ago, I stopped. It wasn’t intentional as I had no shortage of post ideas: I still have more than one hundred fifty drafts waiting for me. It was a time constraint: I didn’t prioritize blogging while I was at my team Paris... Read more

Don’t be ashamed of self-promotion

promotion-featured

Let’s be honest, we all use our social media channels to promote ourselves, and our projects. Many people feel ashamed to do so. I don’t.

How to blog more often

blogging-featured

Don’t get me wrong: I’m a huge fan of quality over quantity. On the other side, quantity helped me get quality, and people often ask me how do I blog so often (an average of one post every other day). Depending on your blog, and the subjects you want to cover, it may be harder.... Read more

Better comment at the source

comments-featured

It’s been a while that I want to write this blog post, but the friend Nicolas Roberge, beats me four years ago (in French). I think it’s still an important topic, so I’ll write my own version of it. Since a couple of years, we have many communications channels on the web, and some of... Read more

How I choose when to write a blog post in French, or in English

languages-featured

This is a question I get quite often from people who are blogging or think about starting to blog. They are trying to find if they should blog in their mother tongue, or in English, or even if they should do both like me. They want to know why I choose to do both, and... Read more

Guest blog posts

I’ve been asked quite often to publish blog posts from guest bloggers on this site. Sometimes it’s like a press release from an agency, and sometimes it’s from people in the community. I figured out that I would publish my thoughts around it, so I can refer to this post when people ask me. First,... Read more
