Why I Blog in English

English    My English is not good. Sometimes I am shy that I blog in English. But I want to let you know that blogging in English is really interesting and enjoyable; it helps you voice your thoughts so the world can hear you. Comparing to Bahasa Indonesia, blogging in English attracts more readers. Indonesian Language blog will only be visited and read by Indonesians. English blog, however, catches the eyes of the world community.

I have at least three reasons why I blog in English.

    First, I want to improve my English skill. I am not really good at writing either in Bahasa Indonesia or English, but I feel my words are sharper when I write them in English. It is powerful. By writing or blogging in English, I do hope that I can make my English better and convey my thought more powerfully.

    Second, English is art. This is why I have loved English since I was a kid. I used to listen and watch Indonesian people speaking English on TV and radio. They look cool. The sound of English they produced is really melodious for my ears -- Indonesian ears. I struggle very hard to learn pronouncing English words. It is something that not all Indonesian tongues can do. Due to this difficulties and melodiousness, English can be included as one of the forms of art. Art of pronunciation.

    My last reason is that English is the language of the earth. If you don't agree with me, it's okay, but more than 510 million people in the world speak English and it is also the language used officially by all countries to communicate their important issues with each other. It's no harm blogging in the language that is widely spoken by humans.

    So, why don't you start your own English blog?

Yes, sometimes there will be a different feeling I get after making a post in English. It's make me said to myself that there was some other potentials hiding behind this head that I still can use them to make this life more colorful.

That's absolutely right! I prefer writing in English because my mobile phone keypad can help me type faster in English when I switch on the dictionary mode. LOL

Saya kurang mengerti dengan bahasanya, ya kalo menurut kamu lebih nyaman bahasa ingris, gk papa, yang penting kalo orang indonesia ya harus ngaku orang indonesia! ok!

David July said...

@Sambengan: Tentu saja saya sangat mengakui dan bangga menjadi orang Indonesia. Oleh karena itulah saya ingin menyuarakan kepada dunia mengenai Indonesia: budayanya dan orang-orangnya. Media untuk hal ini adalah dengan ngeblog dalam Bahasa Inggris. Kita tidak dapat terpatok kepada satu prinsip yang salah bahwa orang Indonesia sepatutnya menggunakan bahasanya saja. Ini sama halnya dengan mengunci mulut kita. Dunia perlu diperdengarkan. Ide dan fikiran kita butuh disuarakan.
