First post in English

----- Leia esse post em Português: aqui

Hi, everyone!

How are you?

So clearly my attempt at blogging using Life in Dresden didn’t quite work. I felt like I needed to talk about my life in relation to Dresden, such as what is different here or beautiful places, etc. But I didn’t always feel like doing that.

I thought and thought about it and realized I don’t want to have to write about anything in particular other than what’s happening to me, regardless of where I am. My dogs, my books, my house, whatever. And also, really blog, instead of necessarily writing "useful" things. Which is not to say I won’t be doing that, you know what I mean?

I just don’t want to feel limited.That’s when I had the idea of making YouTube videos. They are so much easier than making a blog post with pictures! You just say what you want to say and show on video what you are talking about. It also feels like I am really talking to people in a more relaxed and personal way.

And after I had the new YouTube channel all setup and even with a first vlog uploaded, I decided to create a new blog, for those things videos don't make much sense or for when I simply felt like writing.

Another thing that bothered me about the other blog, was that I had made a decision to translate it into English, in such a way that it made practically no difference which language you were reading in. But that became such a chore! Because sometimes things just don't work in the other language and I had to spend a long time just trying to find an equivalent expression. I prefer to write in whatever language I feel like and maybe translate, maybe not. If you want to read only the texts in English, you just have to use this link.

At this point, I only made three videos, of which two are published. I speak Portuguese in them and added English subtitles. They are a free translation and so much easier and fun to do! Maybe in the future I will make videos in English and add Portuguese subtitles? Who knows?

I will see how this works. Hopefully it does work this time around.

Please ask me things, comment, it will definitely make me happy and give me ideas!I hope you like this!
