A decade of invisibility in Paris!

Although production has dropped significantly in recent times, Invisible Paris can nevertheless blow out the candles on a 10th birthday today (September 17)! I began the blog a decade ago with little more in mind than giving focus and structure to my random wanderings around Paris, and its purpose and ambition has changed little since then. The blog is more invisible than ever today, but survives, and still plays a role in my life.

Indeed, starting the blog in 2008 turned out to be a life-changing decision for me in many ways. Over the decade, I have explored and researched hundreds of places in Paris, and through the blog I have met and collaborated with dozens of fascinating people. The blog has helped me get published in magazines and newspapers, got me featured on a TV programme and led to me writing a book.

Most of it was unplanned, with publications generally stemming from random encounters, lines read in books, buildings seen in different lights or e-mails popping into my inbox. The blog goes on because Paris continues to fascinate, inspire, infuriate, and pose questions, and because most of the city still remains invisible. I have no idea what the next 10 years will bring, but here are the ten things that have most marked the blog for me so far.
