8th anniversary facelift!


Soooooooo... It's been 8 years now that I've been posting a photo everyday on this blog and quite some time since I last changed its layout. I went for a much more simple template this time and included what some of you have been demanding for a long time: the possibility of interacting with social networks. Now, you can like +1, tweet, you name it... and you can also comment on Facebook which is directly integrated into this platform. Not everything works perfectly yet, but it will soon, I promise! For now, let me welcome you to the new PDP; I hope you'll like it.

    Loving the facelift so far :)

    Merci encore!

  4. Congratulations Eric on 8 years.

    I have been a viewer for the past 5-6 years when I had family move to Paris for work. So much great information I have learned - and shared - from your blog so a big thank you!

    Your blog's face lift made me say "wow". ( I almost said YOUR face lift but caught myself!!)

    Hopefully some day our paths will cross in person while I am visiting your beautiful City.

  11. Wow, what a wonderful job!! I mostly lurk here, but do read the blog daily. Thank you for the great effort you put forth for your readers. It is wonderful to have the French point of view, so that maybe I will have a little more insight when I visit Paris.

  26. Congratulations Eric.
    8 years is a long time to do ANYTHING every single day, but to post a photo so that others can enjoy it is even more amazing. I love the larger photos but that you still keep your captions short and sweet so as to not lose readers.

    And sharing on the other social media works so much better now.

    Yes Jeff, a picnic is in order!

  56. En 2006, je crois, après t'avoir dit que j'utilisais ton site avec mes élèves de français, tu as pris une photo pour nous.

    Après toutes ces années, cette photo est encore très populaire avec mes élèves et nous prenons toujours le temps de regarder ce qui se passe à Paris grâce à PDP.

    Félicitations, les élèves aiment bien le nouveau look!!!
