A Note on the Direction of Language Rush

Language Rush began two years ago as a way to document my attempt to learn German, an endeavour that quickly fizzled out when I started a new job that demanded all of my time and energy. Over the course of these two years I’ve had many starts and stops, and the direction of the blog has drifted from language learning, to an enthusiasm for languages in general, to something more focused on theoretical linguistics.

In the last few months, I’ve tried to find some direction for Language Rush (and frankly, for myself as well, since I left the above-mentioned job). I’ve started a YouTube channel for Language Rush, I’ve reposted some old material that I hadn’t realised I hadn’t posted, and I’ve spent a good bit of time doing work that I’ve then thrown away for various reasons.

Anyway, that’s just some background for what’s going on with this blog. I’d like to commit to an aggressive posting schedule, but in my experience that’s a lot of self-imposed stress and very unsustainable. I’m going to be conservative here and commit to just one post a week, every Monday. It may be text, it may be video, and on some weeks when, for whatever reason, I can’t kick out a full post, it may simply be a list of language- or linguistics-related links.

I still have plenty of ideas for Language Rush, and I’m trying to figure out how to execute them. Think of today’s update as a sort of reset: resetting expectations for the five people for read this blog, and for myself.

All right, that’s all I’ve got for you now. I’ll see you on Monday.
