It's My Five-Year Blogaversary!

Today I realized that I’ve been blogging quite steadily for five years now (since August 2005). It was a colleague of mine who urged me to explore what blogging is all about. As I saw what others had done, it seemed like a Herculean task. Where to find ideas to blog about?

Luckily for me I started one post at a time. Now, two blogs (this one in English and one in French) and a combined 558 posts later, I think I’m getting the hang of it.

I believe that every solopreneur needs to blog. The currency of the self-employed professional is ideas. Blogging is a powerful way to get ideas out of your head and into the world. Many of my thoughts are half-baked, sometimes the grammar is twisted or the post is not quite logical, that’s okay. A blog is a workshop to prototype your ideas, to test them and see what sticks, both with you and with your readers. By demonstrating how you think and what you are thinking about, you help your prospects to build their trust in you.

My original intention with this post was to come up with my “Top Ten” favorites but as I went through my archives, there were just too many. Instead, here are ten posts (in no particular order) that I think represent my personality and my beliefs:  

I invite you to explore the archives of over 350 posts on this blog and 200 posts on my French blog. Found a post that you like? Please share it in the comments.
