Blogging and interviews - a volatile mixture

In my blog posts, I have tried to write about things that are interesting and relatively inoffensive. I have also attempted to avoid typical stereotypes, with the notable exception of my previous post.

So it should be no surprise that it was when I had a completely cheesy faux-frenchman picture at the head of my blog that I conducted a series of job Paris...with real frenchman.

Each of my interviews started with the interviewer's observation that they had just read my blog followed by a pregnant pause. Luckily, they all had a good sense of humor, but it is a bit of a balancing act to combine a semi-humorous blog about real life observations with the more buttoned-down and mostly humor-less world of business.

There is in fact an entire blog on the topic of mixing real world writing with business, as well as an accompanying book (movie to follow shortly?) shamelessly titled naked conversations.
