Taking a break from blogging during the summer gave me much-needed time to take stock and reflect on the progress of the Klopp family blog during the first six months of its existence. Having committed myself to a daily post turned out to be in retrospect like self-inflicted torture. Instead of writing seven posts per week, from now on I will only publish three. I also switched to the Lite Book theme, which appeals to me for its clean format, full-page width and no clutter at the header. The blog’s title has also changed, so there will be no doubt in anybody’s mind which Klopp family this blog is all about.
Considering the fact that most individual contributions came from Germany I decided to expand the German page to include stories, reports, photo essays, poems, and much more. In exceptional cases I will still attempt to translate such submissions into English. But in general, if you see a post in German, it is intended for visitors fluent in German, and it will automatically reappear on the German page. These changes will add to the blog’s international flavor and enhance its bilingual character.
Next week I will publish a post about how Biene and I spent the summer, which actually isn’t over yet. So enjoy it, while it lasts.
