Why I'm an English Blog (again)

Monday, November 17, 2014 Jo Hanniffy 8 Comments

Some of my blog readers sent me emails asking why I changed my blog into bahasa. Well I have some reasons why I did this: 
Firstly, because I'm currently in Indonesia and some Indonesian bloggers would prefer to read a Bahasa blog.
Secondly, I want to get job reviews from Indonesian companies but unfortunately the rate offered doesn't make me happy so I decided to go back to English. 

Anyway, I prefer to write in English for practicing. Besides, I have more ideas when writing in English and I feel much more expressive than when writing in Bahasa. 


Because I don't like reading my own writing in Bahasa anyway. My writing looks fake and full of forms - can you see that? I don't see the expression from the writing at all. The writer's expression should be obvious to the readers through the bloggers writing style.

I'm just too aware of everything when writing in Bahasa! Its just exactly the same feeling as the first time writing English on my blog!

So here I go, I'm baaaaaack!

Nice saying shows your character but that doesn't mean you can criticize. You can still do both in nice and polite way.
