This is something I should have done ages ago. Ever since I started to read and comment bloggers from abroad, I’ve been forced to face the fact that no matter how super smart and glorious my comments were, it wasn’t going to bring me any new readers, unless they fancy reading my czech writing proccesed by a Google Translator – which they really don’t. I mean – my friend from England tried it once and he said he had quite fun trying to understand it and laughing at the bullshit it gave him but that’s not quite what I’d like to give to my occasional readers from abroad.
So I’ve been thinking a lot about starting a billingual weblog because I feel like I owe it to all the amaizing people who end up here clicking on that „Web“ link above my comments. But I have to say it’s one of the biggest dilemas I ever had to face. It brings up so many questions: should I just write every post in two languages? (who has time to do that with the crazy lenght of my posts? O.o I actually spend hours on them just in one language, sometimes, can you imagine rewriting it all into english on top of that?) Should there be two websites on my domain, one fully written in english (including all the categories, sings and stuff)? ‚Cause what’s the point of writing the content in english when you are not able to browse my site since you don’t understand the labels? What if I want to write some things only in english because in my language they don’t sound as right? What happens with my czech readers then? Will they still want to follow me or will they get pissed? The problem is, not everyone here understands english and maybe they don’t really want to follow a blog that’s not consistent in language. I probably wouldn’t.
All these questions have been haunting me for ages and everytime I wrote an english post, I deleted it in the end because it didn’t feel right, I thought it shouldn’t be here. But then what happened:
