I have tried this. I can’t complain because I get a lot of unique visitors. And for obvious reasons, they can relate more when I post in English.
After a while, I ran out of things to say. It wasn’t as sensitive and interesting as I want to portray.
I could come as someone very opinionated yet keep most intimate details to myself. I don’t open up that much to others. If I do, it will take a while. I don’t like being labeled.
People say I’m a snob, especially kababayans. I am closer to foreign friends than fellowmen. I don’t have close Filipino friends anymore… except those that are in the Philippines. Even there, they can’t relate anymore.
Will the post be more appealing if it is in English?
I guess not all the time.
First, you should be aware of everything. from grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. You have to be particular and conscious. And it is a standard not everyone can take.
Second, there are words that I cannot translate – from Tagalog to English.
Third, it is just more fluid (more fluent) when it’s in Tagalog.
Fourth, No one wants a show-off… 😛
In conclusion: The content is far more important than the language. Whatever language you want to convey your message as long as it is understandable and readable, that for me is OKAY. you don’t need to stress yourself out…
