    Hello Keith,

    Love your site! Thanks for mentioning me recently… I just got started in October…

    I would greatly appreciate it if you would add me to your list. I am currently in Centre, but we are moving to Fontainebleau area this summer…

    Here’s a description of my site:

    Real photos. Real France. Daily snapshots and snippets of life in France… the culture, the food, the wine, the occasional frustrations. This site offers a real picture of day-to-day life here, as seen through the eyes of an American mom…

    Thank you so much,

    Kelly Robic

    Hi Keith

    This is the first time I checked out your site. Fantastic. I can see myself whiling away countless hours in front of my laptop on those cold, dark winter days.

    Hi Shannon

    I’ve had my eye on La Vie Francais for a couple of weeks now!

    I think I mentioned last week that I loved your post about bottoms, bums, arses – and I’ve repeatedly stated that we need loads more antipodeans moving to France (and blogging about it!)

    Do you know Poulette – she comes from your neck of the woods!

    As for whiling away countless hours on those cold, dark winter days…

    Should n’t you be concentrating on all that “sex, drugs and participation in criminal activities” that you don’t want your parents to know about?

    All the best


    P.S. I may, for the sake of intellectual integrity, require more details on all that “sex, drugs and participation in criminal activities” stuff. I won’t tell anyone, I promise!

    Hi Keith,

    I just happened upon your website today and love it! I think we must know a few of the same people…the expat blogging world in France is petit after all 😉 I love how you’ve categorized the different blogs according to region. I’m moving to Isère this week (from Ile-de-France) and plan on checking out some new blogs from here. Thanks and keep it up!

    Oh Crystal

    What took you so long?

    Yes, I’ve been following your move down south!

    I’m so jealous of your green stripe!

    All the best


    P.S. Watch out for tomorrow – special blog – I understand that you’re mentioned!

    I found you today after my daughter emailed me to tell me about this great site!
    I have lived in France for 10 years and my husband and I run a Chambres d’hôte ~ he is also a translator for numerous notaires for house conveyancing……..love it here and would love my blog to be added!

    You should be proud of Hannah – she sent me a mail asking me to take a look at Lavender and Lovage

    I will a have a peek at your blog as soon as Mrs A Taste of Garlic has finished with it; she loves cookery blogs!

    She’s a bit of an amateur cook herself – you should try her Eel Entrails Stew – absolutely wonderful!

    I’ll get her to send you the recipe if you like?

    All the best


    P.S. I noticed your Lavender Cup Cakes post – have you ever taken a look at Leesa’s blog – News From France – Leesa is a bit of a Cupcake Queen herself (although she does have a nasty habit of wearing Pink Flip-Flops!)

    Hello Keith,

    Thanks for the shout-out in new blogs on the block! I didn’t even know about your site until it showed up as a referrer in my blog’s stats. Your site is great—what a novel idea! Just one small correction: the blogging really only started 3 months ago. The site has been up since January, but that was back when I was going to use it for my abortive English language consultancy. In any case, thanks again for the mention, and best of luck with the site and your endeavors!

    Hi Mike

    Cock Up is my middle name!

    I do have to admit that I’m really rather impressed by your blog!

    If only you could manage a post about Lingerie, Nuns and Citroen 2CVs (preferably blue ones as they go faster!) I’d have no choice but to do a full review!

    Then you’d have to put up with people stopping you in the streets, asking for your autograph; waiting outside your front door hoping to take photos of you in your PJs etc.

    Once you’ve been reviewed by Garlic, your life changes forever – but hopefully for the better!

    All the best

    Hi Keith,

    Great blog you’ve created!
    Ive recently started a blog on my time here in France and would love it if you would add it to your list 🙂
    I am based in Nice.

    Hi Keith,

    I completely stumbled on this site and I am really impressed. I think it’s a great idea to promote blogs with the same theme. I can’t believe how many of us Anglais-parlants have decided to give it a try in France!

    I’m a nomad searching for home blogging about my newest stop in Lyon (Rhone-Alpes). I write about culture shock, stereotypes, looking for love, dreams and adventure, European travel, and navigating the multi-faceted experience of an ex-pat abroad.

    I think it’s great that you gave up what you didn’t want and started something better. Kudos!
