Language issues

The fans of this blog (I think there are two, more than some blogs get describing the eating habits of pet canaries) have expressed some regret that I don't post in Latvian. My newspaper, Dienas bizness, doesn't object to my writing for others in languages other than Latvian (I am fluent in English and can manage to write in Swedish getting only a few giggles from my oldest son). But if I write in Latvian, even if it is in a medium that may well be beyond the comprehension of responsible persons (blog, what is a blog?), there could be problems. There have been problems. So for now, I will stick to English and try to avoid too much jargon and American slang so that both my Latvian readers understand. Perhaps someone can re-blog me in Latvian?
