After using tumblr to recycle my soup.io posts since a year I will start to use it as my first public blog in english. If you followed me because of the images please head over to my soup and follow me there. I can’t provide you with a tumblr of it as the automatic import isn’t supported any longer.
Because I can. I am blogging since 2006 in german at 2-blog.net and was for some time quite successful. I still am. But who cares. Since some months I am part of work|i|o, a startup that tries to change how we work. My main role is communications at which I am awesome. In german. But my english sucks that much that I still have lots of problems with it and it makes me damn insecure. I was hiding, wrote concepts, planned stuff and everything but never went out there and told people how we want to achieve ALL the things.
This year is important to me and the startup. We need to get momentum. In the last months I was able to postpone stuff with stupid excuses. Now I am hungry and I want to see things happening.
My english is still bad but most of the people are able to understand what I am trying to say. Even if not they can always ask. Not doing anything won’t make me better. And it is just the language. I sometimes get told that I am still better than the majority of people for whom english is their first language. No excuse.
This is one of the few blogs where corrections about spellings and grammer are more than welcome. I can only improve myself if I get feedback. Of course you should correct me on a substantive basis too. If I write something wrong I hope someone will tell me. If you don’t want to do this in public shoot me a mail at email@example.com.
What to expect?
I don’t know. One reason for this was a post I wrote for the work|i|o blog which was too long, too unfocused and to unimportant. It will never be published there. But I think that I might still be interesting for some people who want to get the whole story. The content here will in most cases be centered around me. If you don’t like me or aren’t interested in what I do and think, you shouldn’t follow this blog. It won’t make you happy. To everyone else: Welcome to the future. If you have any suggestions use the comments or ask-a-question or mail.
