[en] Shall I blog?
With sharing the news about my new website on twitter, a small discussion about blogging started, mainly with Robert Lender, who is a long-time Austrian blogger and well known in the scene. He immediately introduced me to different blogging concepts and encouraged me to start blogging, plus to open the comments section (which I did today 😉).
But shall I blog? It’s mainly not a question to you out there, more to myself.
There are so many things that are bothering and interesting me, that it would be a blog with 1000 different topics and issues. Who would be interested in such a thing?
Blogs that I love to read are very specific to a certain topic, like TrainTracks.eu about travelling by train, or Sidelinereporter about American Football, or dieTiwag.org and gehoertgebloggt about politics. These are fantastic blogs, completely different, but each and every one very well made AND they are very consistent about what they write about.
Today my sour-dough full-grain rye bread was ready, as well as my kefir. I think about youth politics, European politics (especially in the context of the Council of Europe), cooking and baking, currently a lot about the Case Study research method as it is the approach for my master thesis about regional planning. Besides that I love to travel by train, with a special love for dining cars, I’m active as an human rights activist, mainly to support refugees and as a violence prevention trainer in youth work. I work(ed) with topics like faith, interreligious dialogue, poverty, social injustice and environmental change and I’m interested in Linux, Open-source, Copyright, Geo Information Systems and press work / (social) media.
It would be a mix of all/some of these things and I would find my way by doing.
and… soll ich auf Deutsch schreiben? It’s my first language and I’m of course much more confident in writing in German, but my experience is also a good one with writing in English. Maybe also this will depend.
The inconsistency as consistency.
Let’s see! 🙂
