What is this blog about?

This blog is my online journaling sketchbook, so expect to find journal entries, drawings and accounts of places I have been and things I have done. My main interests are art, design and sustainable living so there will probably be a few posts about that sort of thing.


How do you pronounce your Aelfleda and why is it spelt that way?

Elf – Leeda or Alf- Leeda


Why do you write in both English and German?

I find it important to write in both languages, not only so that I can practice writing in both languages, but also so that my grandparents and Ricos parents can read the blog without having to struggle with English.


What does the blog name mean?

Aelfleda is my name. And when I saw that the domain name was still up for grabs I decided to use it. I had been battle searching for a creative blog name that would describe what I was planing to write about, but as I hadn’t found anything suitable, I just put off writing at all. What describes me better than my name? Not much.


How often do you post?

I try to post at least once a week, but it really depends on how much I have to do. Writing a bog post, translating it, taking and editing pictures, drawing and editing all takes a while to do, and although I have great enjoyment doing it, sometimes I just don’t have as much time as I would like.
