INSPIRELLE TOP 25

The beginning of a new year is always a good time to review your accomplishments — what worked, what didn’t, what to do better — and that’s what we at INSPIRELLE have done. 2017 was an exciting year, during which we were named Best Website for Expats 2017 by the readers of Expatriates Magazine, we published our 105th newsletter, and hosted 10 events in our second year of business.

Readers consulted INSPIRELLE on a wide range of issues that matter to women living not only in France but around the world: from insights on marrying a French man to finding good food or a dream job in France, from things to do with or without kids in Paris to digital parenting, from the practical aspects of navigating daily life in Paris to embracing your child’s sexual identity, and much more.

THANK YOU, dear readers, for supporting our mission to INSPIRE, CONNECT and EMPOWER women by visiting our website and following us on social media. And special thanks to the wonderful contributors, volunteers and interns who make producing the content on this site possible. Without further ado, here are our top 25 most popular posts (ranked by number of page views) from 2017:
