I think I’m ready to get back to blogging regularly, but I am caught in a logistical issue: should I continue blogging here or move to another blog (have .nl domain and basic WP installed for a while now).
Many of the things I want to blog about are not fitting easily in this blog – gardening, cooking and making things with my own hands – so it would be fine for a new one. But there is a huge overlap that comes from wanting to write on homeschooling-related topics: learning, relationship building, facilitation. These are where it would help to have a history and a connection.
Also, there is an audience change. I want to connect more to the readers in the Netherlands and although I can’t write comfortably in Dutch yet, some things I’ll be writing will be focused on the local things and linking to the Dutch-speaking internet. I’m also thinking of writing post summaries in Dutch.
And there is also a future. I’ll be back to working at some moment, but at the moment it’s not clear how much it would be related to what I did before. I want to keep (whatever is left of 🙂 my old professional identity, but I would also like to experiment with new things.
So I don’t know, should I continue here or there? Dividing between two wouldn’t work. May be blogging there and cross-posting relevant things here? Or taking a plunge and reshaping this blog to add new sides of me that want to be visible and then dealing with what comes out?
