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

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

My blogging review of 2013

likethis-featured

I read this kind of posts on many blogs: a recapitulation of the last year of blogging. It’s not something I was doing, but as I was looking at the posts I did during the last year, and I thought it could be a good idea to create a small review of 2013. Last year,... Read more

There are many things I realized in my life, and I spread those ideas to as many people as I can! I want folk to think about their personal brand.

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

It’s not just about developing your application; you need to market it

publicity-featured

It’s been a couple of years now that I’m a Technical Evangelist, and funny enough, often my discussions with developers turn around marketing. Many developers asked me how to get traction with their applications: how to get more users, how to be featured in the marketplace, how to get more download, or how to have... 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

You know me, I like to share with others. I also like social media, and I’m a big believer in the strength of those online tools. It’s why I accepted the offer of Nancy A. Locke when she asked me if I wanted to be part of a roundtable discussion at the McGill Writing Centre around Social... Read more

Copyright David Champagne http://davidchampagne.ca

It’s been a couple of times that people ask me what it take to be an Evangelist. Always in the mindset of saving some keystrokes, I decided to do a blog post about my vision of it. First let’s clarify something: there are many types of Evangelist roles around the world, and the job I... Read more

Saving your keystrokes

A couple of weeks ago, Jonathan Rozenblit did an interview with Scott Hanselman for D3, a Web show we have at Microsoft Canada. In the first episode, not online yet (Jonathan is working on it), Thomas Lewis and I discussed about the interview, but we didn’t have the time to approach one subject that I... Read more
