Blogus resurectus

A couple of months ago, I decided to discontinue my blog. Some of you have asked me why. There were several reasons. The main reason was related to what I would qualify as blog stalking. From now on, I will give less information about me in order to protect my privacy.
I also needed a break, the mental pressure of having to publish something smart every couple of weeks, while working 11 hours a day, traveling all the time and having to raise a family, was a little bit too much. I needed some time without that pressure.
However I am coming back with a new blog . I am not sure which language I am going to use yet. As you probably know I am a Catalan nationalist who defends Catalonia without blaming Spain for where we are. I like Spain and the Spaniards. They would make excellent neighbors. I want to influence the Catalan society towards nationalism/globalism, not towards localism. I want every Catalan to be fluent in Catalan, Spanish and English, proud of our mother tongue, Catalan, but conscious of its limited reach. The problem is that English level in Catalonia is pathetic. Should I write in Catalan? Should I write in Spanish? Should I stick to English?

Anyway from now on, you can read my posts here (catalon-IAN politic-IAN)

There are several experiments in the blogsphere issuing posts in both spanish and catalan. Why not in three languages? :-)

Welcome back, Ian!

Ian, I'd given up checking if you were back until today. Glad to see you are. I'll be checking out the new blog.

So, it's me, Erik, once again.

Since your blogs seem good at generating traffic of English speaking Catalans, I have to promote myself here.

Possibly, my blog is not good, but I do not thinks so. Any imput from you or your readers would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
