Some may ask why Migrant Tales is a blog written in English. When I started this blog in May 2007, I thought that English would be an effective filter to leave out the knee-jerk and sometimes openly hostile attacks from Hommaforum and Scripta.
In the past year, especially after the April election, Migrant Tales has seen record growth and we feel pretty strong today. We have gone through many debates and situations during our short existence.
As we’ve grown into that “humble voice” we have become stronger and more convinced about our convictions.
As editor of Migrant Tales, I welcome more blog entries and comments in Finnish and Swedish. People can in theory respond in any language they please. Google translator makes it possible.
Another language that we’ve used on and off on this blog is Spanish.
