What’s the latest barometer of Parisian cool?
Having your own Wikipedia entry.
La Mom is hoping some of blogger (and writer and journalist) pal William Réjault's cool will rub off on her.
Les Moms were très flattered when William invited us to blog about La Nouvelle Star on the French national newspaper Le Figaro’s website (La Nouvelle Star is the equivalent of American Idol or The X Factor).
So why is Will’s future so bright, you gotta wear shades?
He is professionally trained as a nurse and hit blogging gold when his hospital and nursing home stories enchanted French readers. He was asked to turn his blog into a book and his first one, La Chambre d’Albert Camus, was published in 2006.
Since then, he:
-Published three other books
-Blogs and writes for Le Figaro, France’s national newspaper
-Published the first French interactive novel for iPhone
-Interviewed the hottest French celebrities for the magazines Voici and Gala
-Blogs for French singing superstar Zazie on the making of her latest album
-Is the Digital Content Editorialist for Universal Music
Whew! I think that covers it.
So on y go! Let’s get to know William better:
