@Gabz My philosophy: Write like nobody’s reading. And be delightfully surprised when someone responds.
Me writing in Norwegian on a social network where almost everyone writes in English is probably a good foundation for the first part. But still, I’ve been delightfully surprised a couple of times.
@teisam Maybe people whose first language is not English can occasionally post in their own languages to “prime the pump” and signal that yes, there are people who speak XX here? I remember one time seeing someone post in German and a whole bunch of people replying with “I didn’t realize there were other German speakers here!” and now I do see occasional German and French conversations in my Timeline.
But glad you still find value in Micro.blog even in English; skål :-)
