After 16 months, the advantages are clear; I’m now able to reach a much larger group and statistics show I get visitors from all over the world, which I prefer rather than having a (larger) Dutch reader base only.
By writing in English I noticed I got to know the language better, since in attempts to look a bit more professional I often look for translations and synonyms.
Also I don’t specialise in niche blogging, since I’ll elaborate on any subject which entertains or interests me, so quite possibly I’m my own biggest fan.
Today I came across this test, which estimated my vocabulary at 21,200 words, which for me seems quite a lot, but still remains on the low end of native speakers.
Naturally for me this is a good ego-booster, keep up the good work I-nomad, up to the 30,000 .
