I’ve been considering trying to blog in German for a while now. And now that I have started my summer break (YAY!!) I actually had the time to do it. At least…I had the time to log into my server, quickly install a new WordPress site, redirect the name servers for my domain names, and write a quick post.
But I did it! Only time will tell if I will actually post on the blog regularly.
You can access the blog from the following two addresses:
Or you can click on this spiffy graphic and it will take you there too:
I wanted to name my “German” blog Denglisch/Denglish because if my readers want to read it and expect me to write perfect German, they will be sadly disappointed. Maybe now they will expect the worse and be pleasantly surprised! I couldn’t decide between the two names because both words “Denglish” and “Denglisch” are valid Denglis[c]h. “Denglisch” is a combination of the two German words “Deutsch” and “Englisch” whereas “Denglish” is a combination of the German word “Deutsch” and the English word “English”. This is why I bought both domain names and why I made the “c” really small in the graphic.
I am actually more proud of my graphic than of the fact that I started a German blog. Playing around with Inkscape is a lot of fun! I have added it to the list of things that I really want to learn some day.
