Blog Moi Paris – The Final 3
Yesterday I was lucky enough to spend the morning in one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever set foot in – Hotel de Ville, the Mayor of Paris’s City Hall. I attended the announcement of the final three winners of the BlogMoi Paris competition hosted by the Mairie de Paris. While my entry wasn’t a finalist, the whole process was still a great experience. I look forward to following the three finalists as they progress, as they have different things to say:
Alexandre’s blog, The United States of Paris plans on exploring Paris and getting to know Paris from the viewpoint of foreigners (comme moi!). His first feature with John, an American jewelry designer is up on his blog.
Clémentine’s blog, Histoire de le Dire is a great way to practice your French through getting to know Paris through it’s people. Check out her teaser to hear what some Parisians have to say about their favorite song or favorite dish.
Sheily’s blog, Sur les Murs, looks at the untraditional art that weaves its way into the environments of Paris, and sometimes into museums.

We both know if people didn’t need to create logins, yours would’ve advanced further!
I did enjoy Alexandre’s blog, guess we’ll see what happens!

These all look good. I take lots of pictures of graffiti art on my travels, so Sur les Murs is of particular interest to me. Paris has some wonderful street art.
I’m sorry you weren’t a finalist. I still like your idea best! You should pursue it as a series of posts for your blog anyway.

Will be interesting to see how it proceeds. None of the bloggers are being paid to do this, but I wonder if either party fully comprehends how much time and effort blogging takes.
I got to talk to Alexandre for awhile. He’s great!
