Why did I start a blog?
I was waiting for a long time. To create a blog, if you want to do it well, take time. Moreover, I had many problems with the fact to show myself. I am a little paranoid when I speak about Internet, Facebook, Twitter,… I am listening a lot of stories about it. I love blogs, I am reading a number for a while. I want a space to have creative ideas, to express myself, to write (because I am journalist and novelist). It is a website where I could discuss a topic I like, and show what I can do. 2013 is the good year. I speak with a friend, she said “Do it, we have not so many tomorrows”. So I do.
