Who I am (or at least a bit of it)

With my daughter
I am 62 and live in Paris. My husband died in 1992 and I have a wonderful daughter.

What used to be: I was an English teacher for some thirty years and thoroughly enjoyed the job. Then I became a webmistress and enjoyed that thoroughly.
I started blogging at the same time as I found out that I had breast cancer and I must say that I enjoyed learning something new, it took my mind off doctors, radiation therapy, operations and the likes.
While I was going through radiation therapy, I set up a blog in French in which I kept a journal of my radiation therapy days. I haven’t written a word in there since 😉
I found a lot of help at MandarinDesign, a site I visit almost daily to figure out everything about the appearance of a blog.
I first used Blogger and then moved to WordPress, which I find easier to tweak than Blogger.
What about now?Now, I am retired and enjoy this thoroughly. People ask me what I do with my days. Well, weather permitting, I take my camera, a nice Lumix FZ5 that I bought, following the advice of Curiouskiwi, go out and shoot. I try to walk a couple of hours daily, it’s healthy, I enjoy walking and it makes up for all the time I spend in front of my computer. Sometimes, I wonder if I shouldn’t rename Blogging in Paris Walking in Paris.
Then, I have to admit it, I spend a lot of time processing my photos and uploading them on flickr , organising them into sets and admining my groups. I have become some sort of a “flickrholic”, I guess.

I keep two blogs of my own
Blogging in Paris, my personal blog and Claude’s Daily snap, my photoblog, where I post one photo a day.
