My name is Martinus Plog, 37, and I live in the Netherlands. I am interested in writing as a semi professional career.

Why I write: - for my own pleasure - to put my thoughts in order - to share specific topics in which I dug deep - for creating stories that I would like to read but do not exist yet

Going forward I intend to write essays in the opinion newspaper column type. My prose is dry and pragmatic and my research is not deep. When I dig into something I usually do it quickly to form a sufficient opinion on that topic, not to become an expert on it.

My internet philosophy is to keep everything as minimalistic as possible. This website will stay simple, black and white, and focused on the text.

I keep all most of my social activity on twitter, but you can also reach me per email

Good to have you here, Martinus
