Reading in 20 Languages – UPDATE! – Need YOUR Help!

So, as I said, I want to continue my “Reading in 20 Languages Project”.
About half of the text is translated, but I’m still not there…

Reading in 20 languages (or so…)

I’ll use colours in the original post to show which parts have been taken/translated

Hey everyone!

Time for another blog post =)
A while ago, I posted this very post: I need your help!
I still need your help! I’m planning on doing a video on my YouTube channel in which I read the familiar story of Little Red Riding Hood in as many languages as possible. Now I know, there are people from allover the world here that probably speak more languages than I do (only Dutch&English). I already got a Spanish, French and Italian version. But I need way more languages than that! I can translate into Dutch myself, but I’d also like a part in German, and in Finnish, and Swedish, and maybe Arabic or Afrikaans. Just as many languages as possible!!

I posted the whole story in that particular post, so I won’t post it here again. Please click through and help me by translating two or three sentences of the story. I would be very very very grateful to you!! <3

All the best!

I need your help!

Dear WordPress family,

I need your help!

I’m still working on finding the balance between WordPress and YouTube – this isn’t my real comeback ^^ But I hope to be back soon! I’m working on some plans and ideas. I guess I’ll be back around the start of December. I’m not giving up on WordPress and writing that easily! Don’t worry =)

But for now, another project I’m working on for my YouTube channel. Continue reading

I’m Taking a Break…

I’m going to take a break from blogging…

I’ve been quite absent for a while now, only posting once in two months or something. I don’t want to blog like that. I used to love blogging so much and spent every free minute of the day on it – reading your posts and adding my own. Continue reading

As long as I got my writing…


… I’ll survive.

I survived.

A while ago, I wrote about short stories. In reaction to that post, Lauren left me the following sentence to work with. It took me a while to come up with a story, but once I started I just couldn’t stop writing. So here it is now!

Feel free to like, dislike, comment or criticise! =)
The electricity was out, rain was pouring in droves and the trees were scratching the windows. I wasn’t scared. I couldn’t be scared. Because then I would start to cry or even scream. And I couldn’t do that. Because then he would hear me and come into my room again. And I didn’t want that. I had to be brave. I closed my eyes and tried to think happy thoughts.  Continue reading
