Me on Boingboing.net and more

Boingboing.net

My French music podcasts at Radio Oh la la (podcasts are in English) were worthy of praise on nothing else than the best read blog on the planet, Boingboing.net as one of the editor’s five favourite podcasts.

I have also been asked to give a workshop in June for Women on the web here in The Netherlands, as part of their 10 year anniversary, which was last year, but because of circumstances, will be celebrated this year. Better later than never!

An interview with me

I have been interviewed for Expatinterviews.com. It features personal interviews from expats around the world.

I plan to ask for Dutch citizenship soon, which won’t make me an expat anymore. And after how many years is someone finally not referred to as an expat? In The Netherlands as of late, ‘expat’ is often used to indicate people of the Anglo-Saxon persuasion who are not very integrated. Not all expats are native English speakers. I’m a native of both English and French, but culturally French Canadian.

Amusingly enough, when talking about the Dutch abroad, ‘expat’ is not often used because it conjures up the above-mentioned image. There a whole discussion in there somewhere!

New blog!

24oranges

There’s a new blog in town and it’s called 24oranges. It is a Netherlands-based, English-language blog about anything Dutch that’s fun, interesting, weird, cool, and otherwise unique. 24 oranges is also the chance to blog about something else than tourist and expat information.

They are still looking for more Internet-savvy contributors with near native and native English skills. I should know, I am one of them!
