In November 2006 i moved most of the old Swedish content on Nikke’s Index into a WordPress blog called Nikke Index. Before that, I boneheadedly refused to refer to my site as a blog. It was a ”personal site”, nothing else. But after installing blogs for a few clients, i though it was about time I opened up the site for some social interaction. And I’ve been in love ever since. Most of the features in KitSiPub, my very own CMS suddenly felt very outdated.
This is somewhat the confessions of a Johnny-come-lately blogger. At times it’s almost as being born again.
I haven’t changed my posting habits what so ever (except for refraining from writing in English for a while). But still I’ve gained a lot of new readers. At least readers that I know of, and readers that never would have reacted with mail, that now post comments, and place links that I probably never would have found before. At least not as quickly as when they’r reported via the Technorati ping service.
And now, today when WordPress 2.1 was released, I realised it’s about time I opened up a separate platform for blogging in English again.
Two languages – two blogs
Just like before, I won’t keep two language versions of the same content. I’ll stick with writing in English when an international audicence could find some interest in what I’m writing, and stick to Swedish when writing about striktly Swedish affairs.
I’ll also move some, but probably now all, old content into the blog. I’ll start out with moving stuff that hasn’t grown stale and still attracts some interest. And I’ll love to see some comments on all the old scam reports and fake lottery winning notifications I’ve published throughout the years…
