Earlier this month my blog became 5 years old. I’m very happy to have written my travels for the past 5 years here, but there is this one thing that still bothers me with my blog.Â Whenever I back read on the blog I cringe at the fact that my English most of the time were off.
One of the main reasons I took up Computer Engineering in college was that I did not like English and I am not a fan writing in that language. I’m a Filipino and whatever people say English is not my natural language.
Why am I travel blogging? And why am I still writing in English?
The goal of my blog is to help Filipinos travel and appreciate the beauty of our country. That goal can only be reached when my knowledge on the places I have been to are read by those who need it when they need it. When they need it, they search it.
I accepted the fact that most of the users in the internet use English and they use English keywords to do search. Writing in English makes my writing somewhat easily searchable. That is the reason why I am writing in English.
