Share and Share Alike

Well, I have to give a big, giganto shout out to Keith Eckstein. Today my blog was mentioned on his site (and boy was it a HUGE mention) and I am totally thrilled and consider myself fortunate that my babblings for therapy were noticed. I couldn’t belived all that Keith wrote about me and my snippets. I think he put more words and energy into writing about me and my blog than I do myself! I better get with it! I truly feel loved an appreciated and just plain happy. Thanks so much Keith you made my year and I sincerely mean that 🙂

Keith’s site is called A Taste of Garlic and to quote in his own words, “I review, share and promote other people’s Life in France experiences as described in their own blogs and websites”.

Keith has been blogging for a couple of years now and I have to say I have gotten a wealth of information and a whole list of blogs that I love to read thanks to his site which is filled to the brim with more “anything and everything French” than you can possible imagine. He site has achieved the popularity that would make all bloggers jealous and rightly so. It is tout simplement, amazing.

His reviews of blogs and sites also extends to French Books that are a must read, links to French Market Days, French Public Holidays (very important to know), French Saints Days (in case you were wondering what to name that new baby of yours) and the best Gites in Brittany, amongst other things.

Also, in honor of the fact that Keith and I both have an affinity to that wonderful car called the 2CV, I have posted a new picture of one that I took the other day while flying down the autoroute. Here’s to you Keith, thanks for the mention.

Please check out A Taste of Garlic. Warning: you could be there for hours due to ridiculous amount of info and fun you will have. You can also find it in my blogroll, if you choose to go that route.

Happy reading and I hope you have as much fun as I do and maybe you’ll even find a few blogs that will tickle your fancy!

  1. Ashley

    Thank you very much – you’ve made my day!

    It was a pleasure to review your site and tomorrow I’ll let you know how many people saw the review.

    All the best


  2. Great review Ashley. Your blog is most entertaining and I enjoy listening to your ramblings about fixing up your house and living with Dude. Have a great weekend.

  3. Ashley,
    You are getting the recognition you deserve. Pretty soon your pool of readers will skyrocket!Thanks for entertaining us and also making us reflect about the Frenchness of things and situations you describe. You always bring perspective to things we take for granted and as per normal for those like me who were born here. And you manage to remain optimistic despite all thé glitches your house has in store for you. Keep on the good job!

    • Thank you Bernard. It does my heart good to hear things like that. I really started writing just to help myself make it through the craziness. It really was a cheap form of therapy. I never could imagine anybody would be interested in what I had to say and my daily rantings. I do have to say that it feels good to hear the comments I get from everyone (especially my few die-hard supporters like yourself). Hopefully you sometimes get a chuckle out of them! Thanks for your support and please feel free to tell me if you don’t like anything I am saying. I promise I won’t be offended! It’s always ok to ruffle some feathers. Thanks for reading I really do sincerely appreciate you taking what little time you have in your day to devote to my babble!
