Why are you writing in English?
Well.. I want to travel the world to meet nice people. These will properbly be interested in my blog. Most Germans at least understand English and most non-Germans don’t understand German. The only languages I’m really capable of are German and English. So English is the best (realistic) choice (at the moment) to be understood by as many people as possible.
Is this blog only about cars?
No. It’s about stuff which entertains me. If I’m not entertained at the moment I write about stuff which bothers me. At the moment I have car troubles. So I write about it. As soon as “the plan” reaches the “get going” stage I will (hopefully) not have to write about car troubles anymore…
You were always very keen on privacy rights. Why are you giving your privacy now?
I still am and I’ll fight for them any time. My goal is to find folks which think the same as I do. So staying hidden is not the best idea to be successful.It surely is a trade-off but I think loosing some of my privacy is well worth it.
So I do as one of my favourite novelist proposes:
“Don’t be niggardly with your emotions. Just run it up the flagpole and see who salutes.” — Hank Moody
Disclaimer: No racism intended with the word niggardly.
“Never forget who you are, for surely the world won’t. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.” — Tyrion Lannister
Are you afraid of consequences at your job because of the stuff you write?
No. Luckily I’m quite good at what I’m doing so I have the luxury of confidence. At first colleagues have this weird look in their faces when they talk to me because I’ve long hair and refuse to wear suits and ties. This changes quite fast after they realize that I was hired for my skills rather than my looks. Then they think I’m a nerd and get this weird look when I talk in front of a large meeting without stuttering or being nervous. After that they normally just like me for what I am…
So: If you think you shouldn’t hire me because of what I write then please don’t! I wouldn’t feel good at your project anyways so save us both the hassle. If you just want to hire pros and don’t give a fuck about their private life or you even like what I write: I’m your guy!
Can I hire you?
Certainly! If you have an interesting project and think I can be of help then just contact me. I’m self employed / freelancing so I can work for multiple customers at once.
