I have been blogging since 2004 and have written a total of maybe 2,000 articles online in various shapes and forms. Yet this is, at the moment of writing, the only article on this website. This is, in other words, a new beginning for me in terms of blogging.
I already have an outlet in the form of Hacking Chinese for everything related to learning and teaching Chinese, but I want a platform independent from social media and other third-party providers where I can post things that don’t fit into the deliberately narrow profile of Hacking Chinese.
My old website, Snigel.nu, will still be accessible for the foreseeable future. I haven’t decided if I want to publish old posts on this website yet, but I might do so gradually over time. For now, I have just migrated everything into the database, but will keep them private.
Exactly what I will post here and how it will be different from just posting on social media I don’t know, but at least this way I have full control over the content and can present it in any way I like. It will, of course, be mostly things that I create for enjoyment, which I don’t think I’ve done enough of in recent years.
Let’s see where this new blog and new beginning will lead!
