New Layout, New Inspiration

The last couple of months this blog has been bleeding slowly to death, my camera has been laying around the apartment without seeing any day-light and my mind has been on a non-blog state. But I miss blogging. I miss writing down what I experience, I miss seeing writing opportunities in all the fun stuff around me, I miss having a legit reason to make pictures of my food (without looking too Asian), I miss being more active in the blogger community (I still read all you blogs though), I miss getting feedback on my blogs from all of you and in general I miss trying to get this blog to the next level.

There were multiple reasons why I lost interest in blogging. As said before, I detested the previous theme, but with help from Glenn from Some Quality Meat the theme is a lot more “me” now. There is still a lot I want to change, but at least there’s a start and I don’t hate it so much anymore that it makes me not wanna write. Another thing that has been daunting me is my written language on the blog. While I do think (or at least hope) that I’m fluent in English, it will always be my second language. I think I would be better in writing my personal opinions and experiences in my mother tongue Dutch. But having lived abroad for the better part of the last 4 years, having made a lot of friends from all over the globe, I feel that I would either loose a lot of readers OR I wouldn’t be able to communicate things that are especially interesting for those who are living in Copenhagen. I’m still not completely sure what to do with the language, but for now I will just continue writing in English.

Besides that, everything is all cool. These round balls are called “√¶bleskiver” and it’s a mixture between the Dutch “poffertjes” and “oliebollen”. I wasn’t really fond of it previous years, but they definitely grow on me.

Are you ready for Christmas?
