The Serbian post is in the works, but I wanted to take the opportunity and announce several changes coming soon.
We’re halfway through Part One, the bulk of the project, so I thought I’d make it more fun. I’m going to do two things:
VIDEO RECAPS: I’ll be making video posts, recapping the languages reviewed (yay)! They’ll be 5-10 minute long summaries of what I’ve browsed, including highlights, headscratchers and really anything that stood out. I’ll try to make them fun (and depending on how well I am at editing, they’ll be pretty frequent)! Way better than reading walls of text, no?
‘DON’T TAKE IT PERSONAL’: A lot of you have been wondering why I didn’t select several languages in the project. Well, this next change is for you. I’m going to do solitary posts in a series called, “Don’t Take it Personal.” They’ll be letters from me addressed to specific languages (e.g., “Dear German”), detailing why I didn’t want to sample or study them. They’ll be informative but playful takes on the usual posts. Think of “Dear John” letters (or a nasty e-mail you sent when you broke up with your lover … actually, don’t think about that). These will appear in-between the regular posts.
As always, I thank you all SO MUCH for keeping up with my little project and for reading! I honestly cannot thank you enough for the comments, support, tidbits and your own insights on all the languages I’ve reviewed. This has truly been a thrill to share this with you and I hope you’ll enjoy it even more with these changes!
