Ask a Frenchman‘s fourth incarnation is about to start… right now!
Now this is on this blog: David + World that everything will happen:
As you will see, the blog speaks about various things, France not being the least important topic there. I just added a Ask a Frenchman! category.
Here is how itâ€™s gonna work:
Little by little, I will move some posts there (sans comments unfortunately) until the day where this current address will disappear (i.e. redirects automatically to the new one). Fear not, that last stage wonâ€™t be before quite a while and not before I moved all the posts that matter.
If you read this on January 14th, 2013, chances are that you wonâ€™t find many “Ask a Frenchman” posts there yet, but theyâ€™ll come little by little.
I also created an “Ask a Frenchman!” Google+ Community where you can discuss with each other whatever topics you feel like discussing about, including questions I donâ€™t usually answers (relationships, language, etc).
Feel free to subscribe, like, follow or register to all of the social media pages and accounts linked to David + World (youâ€™ll find the main ones in the top right corner of the sidebar, the other ones will require you to look for them - this way youâ€™ll get more acquainted with the site). One of the main reasons for that move is also the fact that Iâ€™m quite active with those and I couldnâ€™t do it under the “Frenchman” persona. Donâ€™t forget to update your subscriptions if youâ€™re subscribed to this site through RSS Feed or e-mail (Iâ€™ll try to transfer the feed, Iâ€™m not sure how itâ€™ll work).
I hope youâ€™ll like this new avatar of Ask a Frenchman, definitely different, but possibly more interesting.
If you have any questions or comment
i was right re your personal site! to be honest i canâ€™t remember how i came to following david+world in the first place. could be via tweet that you RT when you still have the askafrenchman handler? glad to hear itâ€™s a migration that youâ€™re going with. will have to update my feed this evening at home ðŸ˜‰
Iâ€™m not sure. I think you started posting here, and I started following you with my other Twitter account or something like that. ðŸ™‚
Il faudra sâ€™abonner au RSS sur lâ€™autre blog je suppose?
Je vais essayer de transfï¿½rer le RSS, mais si je sais comment le faire en fermant ce blog, je ne suis pas sï¿½r de savoir tout en gardant ce blog ouvert (je vais essayer ce soir). Donc il vaut mieux oui.
I did a few tests (I write in English as it may be of interest for some non-French speakers).
The main issue is that Ask a Frenchman has three RSS feeds.
The original one from back when the blog was hosted on Blogger that still works (it has the most subscribers, but Iâ€™m not too sure how to keep that feed alive (unless I redirect the Blogger blog to davidplusworld.com instead of here - which could be an option).
The “basic” feed from the wordpress blog: https://www.askafrenchman.net/feed/
I just redirected this one and it will work as long as there is a wordpress install on the domain name.
The feedburner feed: https://feeds.feedburner.com/AskAFrenchman and Iâ€™m not sure I can do much with this one.
Goody, iâ€™m glad we havenâ€™t lost you altogether.
