Guest Posts: Posts from guests and friends I’ve made in Provence.
As elsewhere, bloggers are not in short supply in France. I’ve highlighted 10 here. They caught my eye because they are current and relatively frequent. Some are based in the region of France – Provence – in which I’ll be living the first half of 2014 and from which I’ll be doing much of my writing and photography. Others offer something unusual, such as an interesting video blog, a couple of sumptuous food blogs and a language site I’ve found helpful.
This five-year-old blog is published, it says, “to celebrate all that is special about the South of France.”
This well-trafficked food blog has recipes, sumptuous photos and more.
Weekly posts on food and wine, including interviews with those producing it, especially in northwest Provence. Monthly recipe.
4) Expats Blog
A collection of ex-patriots (American and British apparently) scattered around France (but mostly Paris).
Compendium of English language blogs at the news station France 24.
A somewhat whimsical blog about life in Paris. Posts almost daily.
Around since 1999, this blog allows you to sign up for a monthly newsletter with tips on things to do, buy and eat in Paris.
8) French Today
Created by a husband and wife team, this site offers free tips on French pronunciation and offers the opportunity to pay for more.
A rich resource of information about travel and life in France.
This site bills itself as a “digital news source produced for global Francophiles, visitors to France and residents in the country.” Offers a mix of original reporting and news summaries culled from various French media.
