Blogging in Catalan

When I started this blog a year and a half ago, I was maintaining a blog in my team's webpage, in Catalan, to write about my triathlon-oriented stuff. The momentum this webpage had acquired is now mostly lost, and I have no energy to promote its use among my team members once more.

Recently, some Softcatalà people started a Planeta Softcatalà for the blogs of all the organisation's members. If you have a look, you'll see that my blog entries are clearly distinct to the rest of my friends in there: I'm the only one with an English blog.

For some time I've been wondering about dividing this blog in two sections, en and ca, and point the different planets to the appropriate languages. I think I would still give English posts some priority, but there are some things I'd rather write in Catalan (I think I feel like posting about my recent stay in the Pirineus in Catalan, for example). What do people do with respect to multi-language blogs? Catalan content probably wouldn't be too ok for Planet Debian or Planet GNOME, but would my Catalan readers want to continue reading my English content?

If you follow my blog, your comment is welcome.
