Farewell 2015 and welcome 2016

Time flies, now is the last day of 2015. I remember when I was a little boy, I was not happy with slow running time making me waiting for the coming of winter vacation when there is the Traditional Chinese New Year.

Looking back to the whole year, I seldom posted on my blog. This is a bit frustrating to me. I think the main reason is my laziness on blogging in English which is not my mother tongue language. I did write many posts in Chinese and gained a certain amount of traffic from the internet.

I should make a change in terms of blogging on the internet. That is writing more English posts here rather than in Chinese. Writing in a foreign language should benefit me more as I do not think I have much space to be improved in the Chinese language. Another reason is that there are not so many friends of mine would read this blog, which would make my writing comfortably.

Let’s see what will happen in 2016. Happy new year and all the best for you.

A little words behind “Hello world!”

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!

Every time, when I see the above words, I know this is a start of a new blog. I am not a new blogger, since I have been writing blog for more than 7 years! But why this is the first post of this blog? The blog I started several years ago is mainly in Chinese rather than English.

Why do I create a new blog in English? I think I need to explain it a bit in the first post of the new blog.

I have a domain that is short as you see www.inksay.com. For many years, the short domain worked just as a second domain of my Chinese blog, I do not think it is necessary.  Actually, maybe I was the only guy who use this domain in the past years. Finally I want to make the most of the domain by building another website.

However, I already have a blog in Chinese, which stops me to create another blog in the same language. Suddenly, I got an idea why not start blogging in English? I take it. Although the population of Chinese speakers is the largest in the world, English is the most widely used language in the international community and especially on the internet. Since English is not my mother tongue, blogging in English is also a challenge for me, which will definitely improve my English writing skills. To learn something by doing it probably is the best method.

As for the content of this blog, I have not got a concrete idea what I will write. But I think as a Chinese guy living in Europe I have a lot topics to write for both Western and Eastern readers. I think the best way is writhing first and then find those topics what I am good at and readers like most.

This is the little words for the first post of this blog. I give the name of the blog initially as “Nothing but writing” which is of course subject to change in the future.
