A Little Break, French Style

Story by Linda Donahue

You’ve probably noticed that there has been a dearth of new content on for the last few weeks … maybe even months. There have even been weeks where there has been no new content at all. So, maybe you’re wondering what is going on.

The first thing you need to know is that is not a business. It’s a passion. As such, there is no staff to put it together. There’s just me. I launched the site in 2008 to give people like you insight into the real Paris … the Paris I know from spending so much time there. I’ve found great partners along the way. Some have contributed articles, others photographs. None were paid to do so.

But is, if not a full-time job, pretty darned close. If I’m not writing a feature, I’m editing one. I’m always looking for story ideas, writers, photographs. Once a new feature is posted, it must be shared across the Web. Twitter. Facebook. Stumbleupon. Digg. Google. Current.  There are emails to respond to, comments to moderate, spammers to eliminate. There have been quite a few “break ins” to the site, and I’ve had to continually check to see that there’s no hidden code (Viagra, Cialis, etc.) buried in each page, or that would-be phishers haven’t hijacked my database for their schemes.


All the “advertisers” you see on the inside pages are companies I have personally experienced and am proud to feature. They do not pay for placement, although we have other arrangements that benefit all parties. I have actually turned away quite a few companies who were willing to pay for advertising on the site because they were either unknown to me, or they didn’t fit my idea of what you would find valuable.

So hasn’t made a penny. Quite the opposite, actually. That’s why I launched two other offshoots: P.S. Privé (bespoke Paris experiences) and Shop.ParisienSalon (the online boutique). I did so for several reasons, one being “demand” from readers, another being to find a way to offset costs for Of course, what happened in the process of doing this is that there were more plates to spin in the air.  Toss in the fact that my full-time “day job” is freelance copywriter. So, for quite some time (since 2008, in fact), I’ve been working 2 or 3 full time jobs, and only one of them was paid. And I haven’t taken a vacation in all that time.

I’m really, really tired.

There is no doubt that has been suffering from my exhaustion, and from my divided attentions. So, rather than giving you a half-derrièred version of the site, I’ve decided that I’m going to do what the French do, and “close down” for an extended break. A real vacances. Of course, will still be live … and I’ve scheduled “re-runs” of some of our most popular posts from the last few years. But there won’t be any new content until my own personal la rentrée on July 2nd.

I truly hope you’ll stick around and come back to what I believe will be an even better site. And if you have any suggestions on how to improve the site, from content to layout and beyond, feel free to email me at — or post in the comments section below. I’ll read all of your suggestions when I’m back in the saddle at the end of June.

A bientôt, mes amis!

    Linda: We most certainly understand!! It’s been ages since I’ve visited but now I’m going back and read the many posts I’ve missed…
    Yes, blogging, and staying up to date, is a never ending job. So have a nice “vacation”!!

  2. Linda Donahue says:

    Thanks Libby!

    Thanks so much for understanding. I’ve scheduled some of our most popular posts to repeat throughout June (and the end of May), so I think you’ll find some real treats. I’m looking forward to disconnecting electronically for a bit … and a little nervous, too.

    See you in July!

  3. Oh my gosh! We all completely understand! Please take a lovely break and enjoy your holidays. Well-deserved. :)

    I’ve had a romance with Paris and all things/people French for many years, and I’ve just now discovered Parisien Salon, which is marvelous, and light years ahead of all else out there to continue the intrigue and romance. Applause for you and your French Style.

  5. Linda Donahue says:

    Thanks Helen! Delighted to have you here!

  6. Imie says:

    I think your decision is smart! I am sure you will find some interesting things to talk about it when you return from your vacation.

    A girl needs a vacation – enjoy!
