Se habla Espanol / English Spoken

La Gringa has commented that I should write some of my posts in spanish since im living in Honduras and probably many other people are in my same situation.
I have no trouble doing so, but I wonder how should I do it. Should write each post in english AND spanish or should I write one post in english and another one in spanish?
Also , should I have the same blog for both languages or should I have a "debo tanto" (spanish for I owe so much) blog?
I would love to read what you think ?

Just write the spanish translation after the english. I have seen other blogs do this.

Selfishly, I prefer English and a separate Spanish blog since my Spanish is still very basic.
FYI, I sent one of your articles to my boss hoping he would have some contract work for you (IP telecommunications) but he did not. The thing is, if I tried to round up work for you, I am sure someone else will too; so this blog is a good thing. Also, as you always note, it doesn't cost you anything.
I wish you well and think you are doing great.

I agree...if you wrote in Spanish as well you would probably be helping and encouraging a lot of Hondurans who probably also need it. However, like Sam, my Spanish is still very basic so maybe this one and one is Spanish as well.

Thank you for your comments. I will try to write an article in english and the same article translated to spanish so that both can read it.

Sam, I appreciate you helping me with my efforts. You are right, I just need more people reading my blog and maybe someone will round up some work for me :-)
