Switching to a single language: English

By | Blogging | No Comments

After the experience over the last months, not writing because I was involved in too many things, I have decided that I will continue blogging just in one language.

In fact the translation does not take me too much time, but it sometimes prevented me from writing, having in mind that I needed to write and translate. And since in Barcelona we are international, it will be in English. I don’t change the blog structure by now, so everything will show up in English in both languages offered.

Cheers and happy holidays!

Blog clutter

Organizing my chaos with blogs

By | Blogging, Reputation | No Comments

After some months maintaining four blogs, I quickly went to the conclusion that this is not sustainable and this generates some chaos.

Blog clutter

It’s not only the work to write, as in fact I will keep generating more or less the same content volume, but the work to publish, maintain, etc.

In fact what drives me to change is precisely the dispersion in my interests. Up to now this was covered in several blogs, but none of them really reflect who I am and what I am passionate about.

I tried to follow the usual advice, keep focus in one topic, but this does not match with my nature.

I started with online reputation, and although I believe there is a field with plenty of potential since we will do more and more online transactions and exchanges, there are other topics that I was already following but that now have big and active attention.

I’m talking about the universe of startups in Barcelona, and 3D Printing, but of course I cover more than this šŸ˜›

So from now on this blog will cover different topicsĀ and I will identify them throughĀ categories. I will continue with Spanish and English as I feel comfortable to write in both languages. And I have friends here and there.

I continuo as norbertrovira.com with third party hosting and using the StellaĀ plugin to provide th etwo languages in a simple manner. In fact translation time for a post is short because by copy and pasting it respects images and structure.

I am waiting for the paid version to be provided. This one lets you change translaton for all elements: categories, tags, etc…

I love blogging

I will also continue with the two tumblrlogs that I have, due to the easyness to upload videos and pictures on the go while I surf the web o walk in the street.

  • sisfoescalador.euĀ for personal life. Plenty of content related to mountains climbing, less now, and running. The name is inspired on Sisifo, obliged to move a rock uphill eternally to find out that when he get to the top he has to start again from the bottom. The people like me who climb summits experience the same a bit, that there is some futility on it. However we enjoy the process, not like Sisifo šŸ˜‰
  • mytekkiesoul.tumblr.comĀ for techie stuff. I post comics that I like, videos or artticles that I enjoy but do not deserve a serious or longer post. The name is inspired by the fact that my passion for Tech has been there with me forever, but I don’t make a living out of it.

So now, new phase!!

Next post will be about my starting experiences with design and 3D printing.
