I started blogging almost ten years ago, in 1999, in a blog I called Mértola. At that time I din’t even know that that was a blog. The term “blog” had not been coined yet.
I used to blog (mertoleaba) for fun, or maybe as a therapy. Now I’m going to blog at work, for professional reassons. I’ve little free time, really, but I’m going to try.
Translema is the name I’ve chosen for my blog. Its a name that reflects shortly my main professional interest. I’ll be publishing mainly in English and Spanish, and perhaps also in Basque. Spanish is my mother tangue and is the only one I really master. I think I should be able to certify a C2 level on that. I don’t think I’d rate higher than a B2 in either English or Basque. Thus, please excuse my English.
How long does it take to write a blog article? That is an interesting topic for an article. I ask my students to submit large part of their classwork in the form of blog articles and I believe most of them will spend about one to three hours writting them, depending on quality and coverage. I should ask them and write a monographic article on that.
