I bought the gauteweb.net domain 15 years ago. It wasn't my first blog though, and it wasn't my last either. Why am I blogging?
From the start, gauteweb.net was a blog where I wrote in English. Basically because I needed to work on my English. After a few years I was fed up, deleted all the content and started writing in Norwegian.
Now, I could say that I do this as a strategic plan to promote myself and enhance my career, but it's not. It may have been at times in the past, but honestly, I do it because I love to write about stuff that I'm interessted in.
On gauteholmin.no I write about whatever comes to mind, mostly about tech, but also personal stuff, pictures of summer vacations and politics. Every blogpost is automatically shared on my Twitter-account, but I do curate what of this I share on LinkedIn.
I started retrospill.ninja because I felt I drowned my personal blog with retrogaming stuff. I now have another writer contributing there too, and that is great!
In the future I think I will continue to focus on gauteholmin.no as it's the blog that I've had most success with and the blog where I feel free to write about whatever comes to mind.
