Does anyone run their micro.blog in some other language than English? I’m considering creating another micro.blog which I’d use for Finnish content specifically. There are cases where blogging in my native language would make sense (and sharing those post to social channels which I use ... juha.micro.blog

@juha Some years, actually many, I tried separating Swedish & English. It worked when I was using Drupal but otherwise it haven't been worth the effort for me.

@juha My blog is about me and my thoughts, so I express myself in whatever language is most suitable for the content I want to share. Most of the times, that’s English, but occasionally I also publish texts in Dutch, Spanish or Catalan. Creating a separate space for each language feels like splitting myself up.

@jemostrom Yeah, I'm starting to lean more in the direction of just posting both language posts on the same micro blog. I used to have that mixed approach on Twitter and it worked ok. :)

@jeroensangers Well said. Yeah, there are some pro's to separating the posts to different blogs via language, but then again, I also fear it might create too much friction to the writing process itself. Keeping everything in one place feels "better" I think :) Thanks for the good feedback!

@juha Do that and I might learn something more than "Hyvää Houmenta", "kippis" and "ei saa peittää" 😋

@jemostrom Well, I believe my Swedish is probably in same state if not worse. It's been 20 years since I last time wrote or spoke a word in that regard :D (btw, not 100% sure what you meant by "ei saa peittää", what was that in english version?)

@juha I think it means «Do not cover», it says so on all electric panel ovens (space heaters(?)) I’ve seen. @jemostrom

@odd @jemostrom Ah, I didn't think of that! Then it's indeed correct. Radiators / heaters have that label / sticker on them often. :)

@juha @odd there is a joke that Swedes only know this phrase in Norwegian, Danish, Finnish and English. You can see this on all electric heaters that you usually find in a toilet, and when don't have anything to read ... well, you learn this 😜 "Do not cover"
