I’m an Indonesian. My ethnic group is Javanese. Everyday I speak Javanese and Indonesian but I mostly write my blog posts in English. Not because I want to look more “international” but because I’m just comfortable to write in English.
I speak Javanese a lot. Even when I speak Indonesian or English, people can still notice my Javanese accent. However, I rarely write article in Javanese. It’s a matter of habit, I know. I’m not used to it so it’s difficult.
I speak and write Indonesian. However, I mostly write Indonesian in academic work: practicum report, discussion report, etc. It makes me feel “awkward” when writing an informal Indonesian article. Really, I feel awkward.
I rarely use English in everyday conversation but I write e-mails in English for my penpals. My e-mail writing style is like my blog post writing style. When I write a post, I often imagine that I write e-mail and tell a story to my penpal. The difference is, my posts can be read by many people.
