First of all, I have to complete my Website.
Then I will think of a personal blog. Why not?

I have no interest in having a blog. Not sure anyone is interested in reading about the minitiae of my everyday life and work.

Too little time and I prefer to communicate/share/exchange directly with my friends, colleagues and acquaintances. I do not necessarily share the same things with all of them

No time for it Dec 27, 2011

I think one need quite a lot of time and a relaxed state of mind to write a blog.

I feel like I am running short of both so I have to focus on priorities, which are, in my case doing instead of telling about what I do.

Blogging Dec 27, 2011

Who could possibly be interested in knowing/reading about what I think or do? I am not interested myself!

Like Neilmac, I have Proz.com.

I haven't invented the wheel or anything, and I feel I ought to have something really worth saying before I clutter the Net up with it.

(I ought to delete at least 99% of what I already have contributed here and there ...)

It takes an effort and persistence to run a good blog, and I spend my time on other things.

Happy New Year everyone!

Nice to write something not translation based Dec 27, 2011

I like to write my own things occasionally, and I post them here
http://www.elusive-jeans.blogspot.com/

Normally blogging follows the completion of a translation, although this is not always the case.

Edited to mention that it is supposed to be training to write shorter, more succinct sentences. I believe I fail consistently in this regard.

No, I don´t think that I need it. Dec 27, 2011

I do not have a blog and don´t think I will get one in the future. I have too little time and to keep friends updated I use Facebook or e-mails. I do not need more clients (in fact I turn requests down on a daily basis) it is rather more time I need and I cannot see how a blog would do that for me.
