I have made a pull request adding Iversen's Guide to Learning Languages. Let me know if I need to do anything else to get it accepted.

Hi. It has been three months since I made the pull-request to add Iversen's Guide to the blog part of the website, and it hasn't been incorporated yet. Is there anything I could do to facilitate the update?

I will see what I can do when I get back from Bratislava.

Are there any rules to keep on mind? Like the preferred length of the blog post, the proper way to submit it, etc?

I'm considering a few topics, in which I may have something to say:
-Studying medicine in more than one language, with advice applicable to other fields
-A subjective review of today's popular digital learning tools
-Using the classroom aimed courses in self-study
-Learning by procrastination from something else
-The long process of the reconstruction of your personality in a new language

What do you think? Anything you think might be interesting for the readers and worthy of a blog post?

Don't worry about the submission process. Just use Microsoft Word, LibreOffice Writer, the forum itself (making a post) or whatever and one of us (likely me) will convert it to the proper format (Markdown). I don't know what rdearman will say about length, but I imagine something rather similar to currently existing posts.

-Studying medicine in more than one language, with advice applicable to other fields

I'd highly suggest starting with the one about medicine studies, because the topic is much less discussed than the others. I'd rank the post about structured procrastination last.

As one who has written a couple of posts and as one of your fans here on the forum, I'd love to see some long-form posts from you. You are the top vote recipient on the forum for a reason!

I'd also suggest that you expand your possible topics to suggests to include a discussion of your process of learning French and English to C2 level. All of the above topics you've listed are intriguing and I'm sure would be interesting to the community as a whole.

My best advice is to wait to post your entry a few days after you've written it. It can be difficult to proofread one's own work. If I've given it a day or two and then go back and read it again, all kinds of errors and omissions will jump out at me. I didn't do this, and I cringe at the permanent mistakes in my two entries that I cannot edit now.

Looking forward to read what you have to say, Cavesa.
