9 years of Don't fuck with Donville

Last june, this blog was 9 years old. But before that, I was also a blogger who wrote in french. I wrote about my life and it was sometimes a real circus because I knew how to shock people (other bloggers) and create a kind of myth around who I was. 

I started blogging in 2005, when i was 26 years old. About two or three years later, it was the golden age of blogs in Quebec. There was hundreds of bloggers. Most of them were boring because they were writing very dull stuff about their life, probably thinking that they deserved some attention. Actually, they probably needed attention more than thinking that they deserved it. 

I became a well-known blogger because I wrote a lot about other bloggers, telling how boring they were or exposing without a lot of diplomacy their superficiality. 

I've eventually had some problems with my blog, saying bad things about my job and my boss. Nothing criminal or heavy, but not very nice things. So I changed my blog and started another one. Eventually, most bloggers faded away and maybe around 2013 or 2014, most of them were gone. 

That's probably why I started this blog in 2014: I felt I had said what I had to say about my life and there was no community anymore to get attention from. 

Then, I said to myself, why not writing in english about a topic that excites me and  that could me  reach a new audience. Also, with finance, I wouldn't be tempted to trash talk about some friends, girlfriend, job, etc... In hindsight, I'm totally able to trash talk about anybody on this financial blog but the topic helps me to stay focussed. 

So, I'm a blogger since 18 years. That's a lot.

  1. Actually Terminator, it was your blog that inspired me to start my own blog on investing. It has morphed into a place where I can keep track of stocks I want to follow and has proven very useful to me.
