I started my blog not as a blog; I’d never envisioned myself as a blogger!
I needed a website for my business as a martial arts teacher. However, I did not understand enough English, and “WordPress” sounded more like “WORLDpress”.
I feel that we are all citizens of this one world we share together and I wanted to be a part of this “world” community! That’s my dream: that someday people will come to view it the same way I do.
Okay, here I am! But now, oh my goodness, I could not understand how to build a website. Most of the instructions were written in English, and the few German instructions that I could find confused me a lot, because the translation was off.
So I created a second site in order to experiment with WordPress without destroying my business site with every little tweak of the settings.
Nice idea, but it didn’t work! I had to create some content to decide if my customized changings would work. Help! I’m not a writer!
My next step was to go out and read a lot of other blogs and thus I got an idea what blogging means. For me, the greatest thing is to meet people all around the world and to learn a lot about others’ mindsets or life plans.
I love this community, its support and its positivity; it encourages me to write short posts in English, and so I want to give back some of this positivity through my contributions.
