Four weeks ago I decided to try one month of blogging in English. It started out as an experiment and ended as the normality. I’ve to say, I really enjoyed it.
I know that my English is far from being perfect, but even after one month of writing and therefore thinking in English, I noticed that I got better.
Writing in English opened up so many more opportunities. I did an interview with Rinzi Ruiz and there will be an interview with Harry Roberts very very soon. Both were possible because of me switching to English. Because of the interview with Rinzi I got backlinks from outside of Germany and I saw tweets from English speaking people. It’s really nice to finally be able to reach a broader audience. Most of my visitors are still from Germany, but I got a foretaste how it could change in the future.
I think it’s really cool to know that everybody whom I write about and link to can read what I’ve to say and can respond to it. I hope this will happen more often in the future.
So you probably already got it: I will continue writing in English. I enjoy it and I’m very curious what can and will happen.
On thing left: I ask myself how important the domain is and if I should change it to martinwolf.org or something like visual-thoughts.com. (All the visualthought.* are already gone, I think.) But I will figure that out in the next few weeks or months.
So I hope you will continue to read what I have to say. And if not, just look at my photos.
