Two languages are better than one
I had a problem for a very long time: Apparently, english speaking people visited this site every now and then. For them, I had to write in englisch. OK with me, but I have some friends who are very bad at english and they always requested that I write in german.
The obvious solution: Do both. This is what I do now, because it’s easier than teach my friends english or my other visitors german. The language for every post will be automatically selected, based on the language your browser claims is the current language (you can select this manually in Firefox, no idea about the others). Of course, you can change this manually with the link on the top of the page.
German and english comments will be saved and displayed together. I will not translate my old posts, mainly because I’m too lazy.
Further changes to my site are planned, but that’s it for now.
