It’s been four years since I started writing, Shutters and Sunflowers, when I was sharing my life in Provence. I’m still writing, mostly about travel and you’re still reading, thank you, but behind the scenes ‘blogging’ has evolved greatly.

Every day vast reams of content is shared across an ever growing social media world; Facebook Twitter Pinterest, Instagram, never mind Snapchat, Googleplus and a host of others!

Spinning through this immense, tangled web, are giant, mysterious spiders, mostly called ‘Google’. These are greedy spiders, they want feeding daily, to search, rank and then like victorious hunters display the most prolific content on their opening pages!

But what about YOU, the reader, aren’t we all becoming overwhelmed by too much information? I don’t want to bombard you with more! So I have been trying to compromise; posting more often, becoming more information specific, mastering some audio visual and only telling you once in a while. I’m making progress, my Twitter ‘friends’ have grown from 197 to over 1000 in just four weeks, tweet tweet!

I have been focusing on areas of Provence I really know, the beautiful perched village of Les Baux-de-Provence the captivating video spectacle of Carrières de Lumières and as many travel tips as possible to make your visit to Uzès as magical as possible, after all, Uzès is where this all started!

So scroll back through the posts or ‘Read More’ where I have added all the links to the last month’s posts for you to click on. Please let me know what you think and thank you all of you for staying with me on this journey!
