Nicole Simon has some interesting points to make about blog language. Interesting one, still: Which language to write in – English? Native? Bilingual? The latter one seems to be ruled out by default, as it’s simply too much effort & too boring to produce everything twice. Native? Access for everybody with the same-language background, no matter which level of education. English? More interaction with the blogosphere at large is possible – your English-blogging fellow bloggers won’t be able to link to your stuff if it’s some obscure language they don’t understand.
