When I launched my project in October 2008, I launched my blog in French and English at the same time, for several reasons, but particularly because I wanted to make an impact in the English blogging world and to make my project known to most of the participants in the Personal MBA.
Since I do have not perfect mastery of the English language, I get my summaries and articles translated by Mary of www.DeansResource.com who does remarkable work. Unfortunately, this translation service is a significant cost for an amateur blogger (a review translation can cost between $50 and $100).
After six months of existence, I have therefore assessed the situation and weighed the pros and cons of continuing the English blog in spite of the costs it incurs. Unfortunately, visits are less than half what they are on the French blog, the number of RSS subscribers is less than one third and revenues from Amazon commissions are very small, unlike the French blog.
For these reasons, I have decided to give up the English blog and dedicate myself to the French blog. This blog will remain in place and the reviews that are already done will remain on line, and I am continuing my challenge; those of you who can read French will be able to continue to follow me at Des Livres Pour Changer de Vie.
Anyway, I thank all my faithful English readers for their support and their encouragement, and I hope that this news won’t make you too sad 😉 . Don’t hesitate to visit my French blog and contact me on the Personal MBA community forum.
