Just curious. Don't wanna know your URL, but feel free to add it, if you want.

I tried, but I just couldn't keep it up after a week or so. Besides I could never think of interesting things to write about on a regular basis!!

PS: I maintain a personal travel website at VirtualTourist.com and post various photos online at Flickr and Yahoo...they take up more than enough time without having to write witty comments and captions too

One personal web site (plus two translation blogs) Oct 12, 2006

One personal web site, devoted to my painting (Riccardo Schiaffino.com), plus two blogs devoted to translation (About Translation, and Translation Quality Blog).

I've considered adding a personal blog (or even more than one), but it's already difficult to keep up with the rest of the stuff.

yes Oct 12, 2006

I love to write. I write pages and pages everyday. But it is a personal blog and only read by one person....

Ciao Riccardo,

I am really impressed by your paintings!! You are definitely talented, well done!

On the other hand, I also paint as a hobby and you just gave me the motivation to maybe finally get around publishing some of my own paintings online (let's see when I can start working on the webpage for this). It sounds like fun.

Cheers,

Ivette

What would be a good blogging service? Oct 12, 2006

I do keep a personal online journal, although I don't write much nowadays. But I've been thinking about starting a blog on translation and language related stuff. I just haven't decided which service to use. There are so many blogging websites out there that it's hard to decide on one.

Traveling Belgian Blog Oct 12, 2006

Yes, I started a blog in April this year to talk about my travels. Right now, it's pretty boring, but it's a good way to communicate with friends and family. I don't have to tell them the same story over and over again. I just tell them to read my blog

Regards,
--Ann

I was just looking at several blogs I'd bookmarked to peruse later, and I saw that the most popular services are Blogger and Blogspot. I'll look into them

Heh, I've just realized that Blogger and Blogspot are one and the same *blush*

I have two personal blogs on msn and yahoo. I'm not updating them too often but still they are a good means to stay in touch with my friends and to have a kind of a journal, keeping some important events.

I started a blog too pretty recently. Though it is also work related, intercultural issues - particularly FR- US - are really personal to me as I have benefited from/been trapped in/strived to build bridges between (pick your choice! depends on the day ) the two most of my life!
