Hi all and welcome to 2021!
Either this year will be better than 2020 – or then Mad Max was right and at least Melbourne, Australia will have it worse this year.
As you who have read my blog before might’ve now noticed that wait: “I’m not reading Finnish!”, you would be absolutely correct. When I started my blog back in 2009 – yeah, I’ve been around for a long time, believe it or not – I wrote in English. Those of you who followed me back in the day might remember this and also some of you might’ve stopped or started reading some years later when I changed my writing language to Finnish.
As to why I’m back writing in English is easy – I consume all information related to makeup and cosmetics in English. I follow Youtube channels that are done in English, I read blogs that are written in English, when I google something I first write it in English, and so on and so on. Which means that my vocabulary about makeup and cosmetics is far wider in English than in Finnish – which is my mother tongue. I’m not saying my English is in any way perfect, I just prefer to write in English when it comes to subjects I also read about in English.
I know not all of my readers are gonna be happy about this change – some might stop reading my blog after this and that is totally your decision – as is changing the language my decision. I will not be putting any TL;DR in the end in Finnish (or in English either for that matter) since either you read this or you won’t.
2021 isn’t some magical year when I think everything – me included – should change or become better all of a sudden but at least I can make my life a bit easier by changing the language I write in. This might be a good change, or a bad one. I don’t know yet, we’ll see. I might not write much at all, or I might be more interested in writing a blog when I don’t have to stop thinking about what is the Finnish translation of this or that word.
If this is the last post you will read on this blog, glad you were with me in the past years and all good to your life in 2021!
If this is your first post you’ve ever read: welcome and hope you stay!
