Let me start by saying that I do not like talking about myself at the third person but SEO rankings at stake, my aim is to get onto the first page and to own my brand name: Benoit Mercier. Also, the articles that I will publish are based on my point of view/experience and they are in no way shape or form linked to the businesses I have worked or work for. I will not censor constructive criticisms, especially as I appreciate that my political or professional views will be different than the few readers I will get, but I will not tolerate foul language.
