    Hi Jack,
    Thanks for including our blog in your list, we’re honored!
    Wondering where you found the non-English languages though, we tend to write in English, even if it isn’t our first language 😉
    Cheers,

      Hi,
      Thank you for taking the time to read the blog. It was a pleasure including you. When I wrote the blog I went through a lot of previous posts to get a feel for your blog as I did with the others. I’m sure I saw some non-English language content but now I can’t find it, sorry if I got that wrong.
      Kind regards,
      Jack
