Mit nur zwei Tagen Verspätung will ich doch nochmal auf ein bewegtes Blogjahr 2016 zurückblicken, wie ich das bislang immer gemacht habe 🙂 Leider ist es 2016 noch ruhiger geworden, insbesondere in der zweiten Hälfte, weil meine ganze Schreibmotivation in die Dissertation fließen muss. Trotzdem gab’s dieses Jahr ein paar neue Texte, und sogar den neuen längsten Beitrag, denn das … Read More
