Meet Sweet Alysse, the star of Alice in Paris, a show on the YouTube channel called Tastemade.

I met Alysse, the shooting and sweet star, last month through a mutual friend and she was gracious enough to grant me an interview.

We met on Skype and clicked immediately. You can see the full interview at the bottom of the page.

Julie (me): Thank you so much Alysse for meeting up with me today.

Can you tell me about your series? We absolutely love it. How did you start. Did you say you won a competition?

Alysse: Yes. We won a contest yet it had nothing to do with Tastemade.

We started doing the series in January. We used that little first episode for a contest to serve as a pilot episode for the rest of the series.

I think it it was three pilots for Tastemade and then we had a 25 episode series order.

Julie: Wow! So your first order was 25 series?

Alysse: Yes!

lovelaughsmileAlice in Paris is made with another guy, his name is Thebaud.

Thebaud Paul Martin

It is just, Alysse tells me, the two of them who have co-created, co-written and produced the series.

She says, He is a genius at the camera and directing. He does the editing, the designing, the color. We write together and we discuss the places we want to shoot, then we work on the episode.

They took two weeks off in July before shooting. She says, We didn’t want to do anything.

Then they got to work.

Now he works on his stuff and I am back to school for one year. I am working on a TV programme called C’erait della :::(chance?)  a then we got our series order for the second season.

Julie: It is really taking off! I see your audience loves you.

Alysse: Yes, really. They are so nice. She offers a smile.

Julie: I think what you give them, is like, you give them a very small bite.

It’s a taste.

That’s what I love about it. It is like you are having a taste of you and Paris.

One of my favorite episodes is the chocolate one you cut right in half of what is maybe a beignet? It was amazing inside, a chocolate. I will find a picture.

What would you say is your favorite episode?

Alysse: My favorite episode is La Prendre du Grande, which is the episode where I run to get the train.

I am wearing a marine sweater, I love this episode, we made that, was episode 7.

The five first episodes were just chaos! We were running around and we didn’t understand what we were doing.

We had thee weeks late, where we were shooting and everything was chaos.

Then, there was this first episode was the first time I felt a sense of, ok, I know what we are doing, we are going to do this, to go through our 25 episodes.

#yougotthis!

That episode, everything clicked.We were on schedule.

The production was good.It is full of humor at the same time.

Also, I loved the episode with my little neice where I put the little candies, because she was so nice and so good at it.

She was very sweet.

Julie: I loved the one episode with your friend on a rainy day where you both try to cheer each other up.

Do you know what I love about it? That it is just a minute and a half.

In a minute and a half you can convince anyone to watch it.

Just give me one minute.

Alysse: That is it! Great, just great.

In June in Paris, there were the floods in Paris and the Seine river went up so high.

We had planned on shooting the sunny, warm, summer episode written upon the premise of sun in June in Paris.

We had to cancel three episodes!

Instead we had two weeks of pouring rain.

Everything had to be cancelled.

Thebaud and I decided to rewrite everythign and capture the real atmosphere of rainy Paris.

Then, the day they shoot, the sun decides to come out again.

Luckily we had one final agressive rain pour down.

We filmed that one so we chased it and caught it on film. That was one of the most difficult episodes to shoot to get the rain and the shot under the rain.

Julie: How is the weather today?

Alysse: Beautiful!

We thank each other for sharing our information and sharing the love as two lights passing in the day.

###

En plus.

  • Alysse is the star + one of the two location finders, co creator and a also a student.
  • They started filming the series in July.
  • Her audience absolutely adores her because she gives them a taste of Paris which is part of her goal.
  • Their team has been green lit to film another 25 episodes starting in early next year and we cannot wait.

How to increase blog traffic — 10 tips and tricks from jbulie’s blog.

1. Get to know your readers. Share.

Spend a lot of time looking at your stats feature and try to understand where your readers are coming from. A lot of my readers have become friends. Thanks guys. A lot are new, welcome. I’ve also found having a stats counter installed helps.

If you want your blog or website to succeed — love doing it.

Easy.

I’m sharing with you what I’ve been doing over here to attract visitors and increase blog traffic.

Don’t believe the people who say they get a million visitors a day — or even thousands. They are like kids in a candy shop, typing in numbers. Learn from doing first hand, and ask a blogger friend.

Here are the steps you can take to make your site grow.

1. Get to know your readers. Share.

Spend a lot of time looking at your stats feature and try to understand where your readers are coming from. A lot of my readers have become friends. Thanks guys. A lot are new, welcome. I’ve also found having a stats counter installed helps.

I’ve learned that they come from all over the world and different backgrounds and ages.

ㄥ❀∨モ
From Pauline to Helen Gurley Brown: She is an unsung, deliciously sybaritic, and downright cheeky feminist heroine. She will be sorely and dearly missed.

2. Participate in comments and conversations.

One of the best ways of inviting visitors to your site participate in conversations in the comment sections of blogs you like reading. Ever since I started my blog, I’ve learned a great deal in the comments section of articles.

3. Write good content.

My highest ranked day was when I wrote a piece about motivation and being a better person.

4. Write from the heart.

Talk as if you were speaking to a few good friends. Write about what you care about people are going to be supportive.

5. Make it a goal.

I have also made it a goal to have a lot of visitors so in my free time I read as many articles I can on the subject.

6. Use your real voice.

When I write I like to picture I’m either standing infront of my peers and explaining things simply. Or, I try to imagine I’m writing my sister or mom and telling them how simple it is to make your business grow.

Wishing you flowers today.

7. Enjoy

You guys might have noticed how much I love to play around with my readers. I enjoy writing. I write to share, to learn and to enrich the lives of the people around me.

8. Add extra value, then go the extra mile.

Using the principles explained by Napolean Hill, the more you give, the more you receive. It’s so easy to get great feedback — just give of yourself.

You are one person writing, right? Well, there are lots of people reading so the ratio is just immense. Give of yourself and you get back so much from some many people. I strive to constantly go the extra mile and provide excellent quality in all my endeavors.


9. Be inspiring.

You can be inspiring, funny wonderful, full of life. If you don’t believe in yourself, well then I do. I know you got this. You can do it!

We all have the ability to push ourselves to learn and make our lives better. You can do it. I believe in you.

10. Pay it forward.

Without my visitors, I’d just be here talking to my cat. She’s a good listener.

In the mean time, I am giving away a free traffic building mini course here. I would love to see you there.

Please answer these questions:

  1. Do you have a business, is it online?
  2. What makes your heart happy?
  3. Do you have a blog? Do you enjoy writing.

Thanks.

6 reasons my blog readers rock. ❒ ~ check ✔

Welcome back visitors for yet another pot of freshly brewed hot blog copy, using homegrown partially recycled pure grounds. Whatever that means.

Blog copy. Try saying that ten times fast.

I wanted to start off by saying I’ve had a few readers who have been such loyal blog followers leaving comments, hitting the facebook ‘like’ button, encouraging me.

Welcome back visitors for yet another pot of freshly brewed hot blog copy, using homegrown partially recycled pure grounds. Whatever that means.

Blog copy. Try saying that ten times fast.

I wanted to start off by saying I’ve had a few readers who have been such loyal blog followers leaving comments, hitting the facebook ‘like’ button, encouraging me.

I thank you for being my constant inspiration. Believe it or not, some of you wonderful readers have sent me long inspiring letters AND super cool REAL presents. That’s just too cool.

Now my readers are going to ask What does blog copy mean? Then they are going to ask me what fresh brewed has to do with blog copy. I’ll have to send them to an expert because I have no idea.ha ha

I’m digging myself quickly into a hole on this post. I can feel it spiraling down.  I still have friends who don’t know what blog means.

Note to self.  Should I start calling it an online journal?

❀ I know you are there. I can see you and it makes me happy and sad all at the same time.
❀ It’s okay to take a break. ❀

1. I love my readers. Some of them I have known for ages and others are new. They continue to inspire me to write.

They tell me nice things like you never know Julie, maybe you will make someone’s lives better. They say things like they love to read my blog. I don’t know if that counts though because it was probably my mom. 😉

2. I love writing. To me writing gets my thoughts on the page and out of my head. Yesterday while shopping with my kids I sat down and wrote a list of 15 things I had to do. I felt overwhelmed and getting my list on the page made me feel like I could accomplish it. I’m just taking baby steps one at a time. Stay with me folks.

3. The more I give the more I receive. My friendships have been growing steadily and so is my reader base. I feel like I have never learned so much about life, love, laughter and people as I have in the last couple of months since sharing my life with others.

I had a lot of fears to overcome. I think we all get used to talking to our inner circle of friends or to ourselves we think that if we wrote it for all the world to see we would be drastically made fun of.

4. My learning curve is out of control. The minute I hit the publish button on my first blog entry most of you know I couldn’t sleep. I thought, Oh great, delete, delete, delete. My husband is currently worried about me because it has been almost all consuming.

I just read. I want to know what makes a blog successful so I just click away. Luckily I’ve been super peaceful and smiling.

I'll forgive you. ´¯`»¸¸.·☆
It’s a new day and new dawn and I’m feeling good.´¯`»¸¸.·☆

I’m not so certain that spending more time online is a good thing though.

I have always sustained that a to be happy in life you have to find a balance of work and pleasure.

I’ll give you an example. Say you are successful. I ask you how you are spending your days. Are you spending them alone or with other people? What percentage of your time are you dedicating to your family, to your work, to entertainment?

How much of your time are you dedicating towards being a good person, toward helping others? How much of your time are you dedicating toward making yourself a better person?

As my best friend says it’s the doing that makes the difference. In writing and sharing, I’m a do-er not a be-er. Note to self: don’t forget to hyphenated the word be-er.

This chick is so cool. She's thinking about you. ❀
I can see you. Just tell me everything is going to be okay. It will! ´¯`»¸¸.·☆

5. People are curious. I think one of the reasons people are reading this now is because they want to know what my life is like. I think I should write more about that. I’ll tell you. I spend a lot of time with my family, cleaning, cooking, writing, drawing,  a lot of time with my friends – as much as possible and the major part of my time taking care of life.

6. I push myself to succeed. I strive for excellence. I strive for peace. I model good behavior. I strive to be a better person. I’m crazy scared that I’m going to bomb in front of all of my peers so I’m doing all I can do to make this great.

I know it’s not. But like I tell my kids, I’m not a great mom, I’m not even a good mom, but I do try. I make it a goal. I know they know that. Making it a goal shows you care. I tell them I love them every day so many times. They know the story because I tell it to them every night before they go to bed.

I tell them I love them more than the moon, more than the stars, and more than all of the oceans.

Tell people you love that you love them. I don’t think you can ever say that enough. Be the change you want to see. Be inspiring. You think you don’t know how? I’ll give you a start. Smile at someone you don’t know. Live your life with passion. Pursue excellence. Take care of yourselves.

Twitter Facebook Faceoff ► Which one do you prefer? #ff @jbuliesblog

Hello!

I’m thinking about my friends clicking in here from all over the world. How awesome is the world wide web? Shout out to the www.

Hello World Wide Web.

Today I’m talking about twitter and how hard it is to understand as least for someone like me.

I’ve had some great great comments on my facebook page. Facebook rules by the way. Twitter, well, it’s new all new to me.

Go facebook, go!

I got comments about how to use twitter since it’s such an enigma for me. David Letterman figured it out by getting a laptop and one of his techies to turn on his twitter page so he can update it during the show.

If David Letterman can use twitter, certainly I can do it too. Right?

tumblr_n8ax1mKPhG1r4dhkuo1_500Hi guys and welcome back. Thanks for dropping in.

Do you often check your stats?

I was humbled when doing my internet research and came across blogs that have a reported reader base of 300,000. I was so excited about my first 1,800. I went into the kitchen and told my husband. He was lovely and supportive. He said Julie, give it a chance, you have only just started.

Time to reflect.
Time to reflect.

He’s absolutely right.

I am reminded to thank God for my many blessings.

I spend a lot of time figuring out the basics, how to choose a picture, how to get my categories and my archives visible.

There’s a lot of behind the scenes work going on that I don’t know if my reader is aware of.

Here’s a little appreciation going to the behind the scenes workers at this blog. Someone needs a little love and a hug today.

Some people added me to their lists of blogs they like to read — this brought new visitors. Thank you. It is a nice friendly surprise — sort of like a present you didn’t expect.

More Readers Comments.

Be young. Go ahead do something impossible. Could anything be more sweet?

Most comments are super supportive and positive. Thank you! A guy left a comment saying anyone anyone writes their biography in the third person is a dork.

I deleted it. I reserve that right for people I truly love like my sister, my husband and my best friend who call me Mutt, Monkey, Jules™, JulieBulie™ and JB™.

Each Word You Say Represents Who You Are

Often when my friends use questionable language. I sometimes give them a tiny note, a wink and a smile.

You can do it!
Give.

They say, It’s not my fault!

I told the sweet and smart people I’m going to buy you a shirt and write It’s not my fault on it for the amount of times I’ve heard that.

I love that they have added me to their facebook accounts and include me in their lives. Hi guys! 🙂

They gave me a couple of toys to play with at school: a spinner top, a stand up figurine as big as my index finger and a poofy top pen.

Smiles. Silliness. Wonder.

Everything is going to be okay. Really!

Life is Participation.

I walked into class and some of my students noticed I got a new hair cut. They gave me compliments. I think were sincere. Although at the moment my hair is getting really long.

I’ve learned so many things from people and living lately. I would say the number one thing I have learned is how to be a nicer person.

I mean it. I surround myself by lovely people and I thank you for being here right now in this minute reading these words. Hi! Welcome.

I’m Still Smiling.

I received a ton of stuff from my loved ones. Thank you so much. They continue to spoil me. I don’t know what I have done to deserve such wonderful treatment but I try to be humble and thankful.

My kids got a lot of clothes, toys and candy. I get love.

We talk about health, not smoking and going the extra mile – and flossing, how knowledge will make you a better people. We talk about how making decisions now effect the rest of our lives.

Miro. Ha!

I feel privileged to be a writer and a teacher to talk to them and to you too. I’m also enjoying every beautiful minute of this glorious day.

Thank you.

I know I got through to my class because they got real quiet and started listening, eyes transfixed.

We talked about health we talked at length about existentialism, fatalism and Christianity and dreams. They get it. Kids are smart. They are our future.

As always, I hope this finds you well, happy, lucky and in love. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read and visit. Have a great day.

 by Julie Angelos

Be inspirational. Be inspired. Note to self: Try. And smile. Everything is going to be all right.
