I'd been wanting to make a site like this literally for years, as I realized I was becoming a sort of expert on a lot of Paris stuff that's not in the guidebooks. I answer a lot of e-mails from visitors to my LiveJournal and photo galleries who have questions about Paris and other places I've traveled, and I've found that I really, really enjoy sharing this kind of information with people. I personally try to find the weirdest stuff everywhere I travel, and it's a great feeling to be able to help other people who're looking for the same sorts of things. Of course there are a zillion guidebooks and websites about tourism in Paris, but they all cover basically the same stuff, and I wanted to do a project that focuses on the lesser-known things that appeal to weird people like me. All the e-mails I get tell me I'm not the only one!
The website is still very much a work in progress, and I'm currently working on tons more articles that I'll be adding every day for, well, for a long time, really! The site feels pretty empty right now and that's giving me tons of motivation to fill it up quickly. Today and all this week a lot of little things will be changing, like some formatting tweaks, addition of lots more photos, etc. I promised myself I'd launch the thing today no matter what state it was in, so this is it! I think it's in pretty good shape, I just desperately want to get a lot more content in there as soon as possible. If you happen to notice any weird layout errors, I would be eternally grateful if you'd e-mail me at email@example.com. I'm on a PC and have had limited chances to check the site on a Mac, but so far so good.
Please feel free to send the link to the site to anyone you know who's going to be visiting Paris any time in the future! And you can subscribe to the blog and or Twitter to be notified of all new articles as they go up.
