Why write a blog?

I have two main reasons for wanting to write this blog.

The first reason is that I hope it will act as a kind of diary for me to be able to track what our son is saying and when.  It will help to keep my family in the UK involved in his day-t0-day life and hopefully it will also be something that our son can look back on in future years (without cringing too much).

The second reason is that I lack discipline.  I know that if I don’t have a project like this then I won’t read about other people’s experiences of bringing up a bilingual family.  I know that every family is different, but I am sure that I can learn a lot from other people in similar situations.  If I am writin ga blog I will force myself to regularly read about other people.  If I don’t have a project like this, then I will tell myself I will read other people’s stuff in the future, and never quite get around to it.

So, two quite selfish reasons, then.
