Hungry for more Techbaguette ?

I admit it, Techbaguette has not only been great geeky fun but this blog has been insanely good to me. It’s kind of taken on a life of its own. I never thought anyone in their right mind would take the good old “TechBaguette” seriously when I launched it. I had one simple goal in mind: share my discoveries and experiences of the French startup scene with the rest of the English speaking world. I guess this means I’m not the only one who likes the French tech crowd ! Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would lead to TechCrunch – although that being said, I can’t deny that TechCrunch didn’t oh-so-slightly inspire it.

“Bonjour, Mademoiselle TechBaguette.”

Since then, I’ve become “Mademoiselle TechBaguette” (nice!) in addition to “Mademoiselle TechCrunch” at conferences. 🙂 A number of people have pitched me cultural variations of TechBaguette, like TechDonut or TechBagel for the US (personally, I’d prefer TechCookie or TechBurger). And so I’ll be celebrating another year of pseudo-Frenchy blogging. Be warned ! Honestly, I’d renew the domain regardless. But now that I’m at it, I’ll take this opportunity to solicit any feedback that may be floating around out there. Questions, comments, conerns, complaints ?

  1. Hi Roxanne,

    As for me, you should keep it as it is: it’s cool and witty. Perhaps, now that you blog for TechCrunch, less startup stuff and more about cultural differences between France and other tech (but not only) places.

  2. Maybe we can “split the two”: continuing blogging about discoveries and experiences of the French startup scene, but also adding some posts about our cultural differences or your feminism commitments, as Youssef proposed.

    For my point of view, your blog is perfect, it’s a good way to have another regard on our little French scene, so don’t change anything 😉

  3. Hello Roxanne,

    Please stay on air for all of personal opinion posts wich are present here versus formal posts on techcrunch!

    Thanks a lot !
