Why English?

You may have noticed the box on the left saying

“If you’ve got time, please feel free to correct the mistakes in my English. This blog also represents a possibility for me to practice and improve it.”

Why am I blogging in English when my English isn’t that good?

There are several reasons for this:

  • As already said: By writing English blog posts my English will (hopefully 🙂 ) keep getting better
  • With an English blog you can reach many more people as with a German one
  • Even people who can speak German (including me) will try googling – uhm sorry: Of course I wanted to say “binging” (as I am testing it currently) 😀 –  with English words first (as they know that this will bring up more results)
  • I wanted to try something different 😉

If you think that I should better blog in German (as you can’t understand “my” English): Please let me know 😉

I really should use less smileys… 😀

Let’s try it again!

Hello – welcome to my new blog!

Recent Attempts

This is not my first attempt to start my own blog. In order to tell the truth: Two blogs already fizzled…

However, everything will be different with this one (I hope 😀 )!


Well, two things are already different.

  1. The hoster: While I used Windows Live Spaces the past times I’ll now try my luck using WordPress. (Maybe there will be a posting discussing the differences between those two).
  2. The language: I try only to blog in English from now on. I will say something to the reasons for this decision in a  later posting.


Topics I am going to cover

Primary I am planning to post about my experiences in my “every-day-hobby-programmer-life”.

This will include things like:

  • General News
  • Windows
  • Applications like Word, Firefox…

However, I try to focus on programming, especially using .NET and C#:

  • The C# language itself
  • CLR (Common Language Runtime) and FCL (Framework Class Library)
  • WPF
  • Architecture and Design

Enjoy reading my blog!

I simply can’t write this wish big enough 😉
