I've finally decided to blog in French too. You'll find my French blog here: C'est pas Mécanique. I suppose I could have chosen to have posts in several languages in one blog, but I can't quite make sense out of that. I'm not really sure what I'll be writing, but it might quite possibly end up being something different than what'd I'd write in English. Just like I'd say different things if I wrote in Danish. One sort of thinks differently in a different language, so different things will come out. So, it is a separate blog, even though that's a little annoying to administrate.

Part of the reason for having a blog in French is, well, I'm in France for one thing. And handing out my ming.tv blog address is of somewhat limited value. Most people are not going to read it, even if they speak English, which a lot of people don't. A blog is one way of being known, of developing a network, of accummulating some kind of body of material, and it is useful for me to do that in French too. And, I guess, it is a personal challenge, to see if I can. I'm a perfectionist, but there's no way I'll be writing perfect French at this point. But I at least feel confident enough to do it anyway.

I'll probably do really short posts, and quote other people a lot, but, hey, that's ok in a blog.

Hell, why not post in two languages?! If you got it baby, flaunt it.

The thing is that I'm not sure if I'd be writing about the same things or not, so I can't wrap my mind around several languages in one blog. But that's just me, I'm sure.

The writer who just got the GONCOURT PRICE (one of the best price for french writers)is from Afghanistan and French is not his mother toungue, but he got the Price for a book writen in french!
Good luck for your blog!
