Travel France Online

Travel France Online logo from their website
You may have noticed that I've added a new category to my blog's sidebar: Websites with French Flair. These are websites that I follow on Facebook and read regularly. They each have a different flavor of French flair. I first became aware of Travel France Online when its editor commented on one of my blog posts asking me if I had any interest in writing for her website. Any of us who blog occasionally encounter a strange or inappropriate comment...I just delete them without publishing. Dee's comment, however, seemed authentic. I checked out the site and found it informative and very professionally done. The majority of its readers are from the US, UK, and France. Most are planning trips to France or have an interest in a specific topic about France. Articles focus on local culture and do not promote tourist businesses such as hotels or restaurants. The website is divided into specific regions of France and also has an excellent section on World War I.

Well...here's the rest of the story. Dee and I exchanged emails and after submitting a trial article for publication, I accepted her offer to be a contributor to the site. So far, I've had two articles published. I can't tell you what a thrill it is to see something I've written professionally published! She's even used a few of my photographs as illustrations. If you're interested, here are links to my articles about Caniac-du-Causse and World War I letters. Please do wander around the rest of Travel France Online. It's an excellent resource if you are interested in France.
