Nederlands is uit. Engels is in.

I love changing things up and that’s exactly what I’m doing. After blogging in native language Dutch for almost 3 years, I feel it’s time I switch.

Why? Trust me, I’ve contemplated and reconsidered for I don’t know long… but truth be told, I find it easier most of the time, and for some reason I feel more free writing in English. This might only by in my mind, but it works nonetheless.

Also, blogging in English means it’s easier for me to connect with other (international) bloggers, which I love, and it means I’ll be able to reach an internationally diverse audience, which given my ultimate wish for location independence, is a good thing.

Therefore, from now on, I’ll be blogging in English.

Dus: lees je vanaf morgen mee in het Engels?

    I can totally relate!! I love blogging in English and it allows me to connect with people worldwide, but sometimes I do feel very limited. Sometimes you just want to share stuff that only Dutch people would understand. And I feel that some Dutchies are less likely to read my content or leave comments because it’s in English, which may feel a little more distant to them. But creating Dutch AND English makes me feel like non-dutch people would stay away, just like I usually stay away from blogs that are half spanish or something..
    I also want to start vlogging soon and I’m still debating what to do. Vlogging in Dutch is more natural, but that would mean I can’t share my vlogs on my blog.
    Decisions, decisions..

      Yes, I know exactly what you mean! Also, doubting everything is my second nature so I will probably doubt this decision for a long time to come. But, staying indecisive has never helped anyone, and there’s nothing wrong with knowing what you want, right? By the way, I love your blog! I think the language is a good choice for your blog, it seems natural to me.
      Thanks for your comment!
