Moving on

If everything goes well, next week I shall be the happy founder and owner of a shiny brand new company, under which I'll incorporate my professional consulting and services activities. It's being registered in Noumea, New Caledonia, where I'm about to relocate in November. Within the next three months I'm already booked on about 100 hours and 36,000 km of flights round the globe, not forgetting the boat for the furniture. (If you know where Paris is, Noumea is more or less exactly on the other side of the planet. So, no, I'm not going to let your children have the oil that I need to burn right now ;-p.)

This may, or may not, have an impact on this blog. I've discussed the subject of separating my professional writings from my personal ones over the years, but I've done that more on my french blog than here. Although I started this blog in english about 6 years ago, my french blog has taken precedence and has grown quite differently. I've become used to writing more freely and in a more eclectic way in french, and to reducing my writings here to more technical, less personal subjects. Also, and that adds a bit to my frustration, my French audience is significantly more vocal and contributing than the anglophone one, making me less and less motivated to continue a standalone professional blog in english (under my personal "brand" that is).

That is not to say that I will stop writing in english. But this 6-year old adventure of mixing pro and personal blogging in two languages under the same roof is likely to end soon. Unless you tell me otherwise, or unless I suddenly find the right way to design such a site properly for once.
