A blog since 27 September 2013


The name for my blog dates back to way before this present blog existed and was part of my first ever self-build personal site (over 20 years ago). With this title I like to emphasis that what ever you read on this blog is how the world and the universe and everything in it appears to me. It is but my view on thingsI have no pretenses with my writings, I simply enjoy the writing process and like sharing interesting stuff I come across or things that are on my own mind with others. That’s what a blog is all about, isn’t it?

Do I have a “goal” with my blog? To answer that, let me quote Rumi:

The truth was a mirror in the hands of God. It fell, and broke into pieces. Everybody took a piece of it, and they looked at it and thought they had the truth.” ~ Rumi

Through my blog I’ll share with you what I can see in my piece of that mirror and try to reflect the content of pieces of mirror that others shared with me. The more shards (relative truth) of that mirror you can piece together, the closer you’ll get to te ultimate truth.

Many of the visitors of my blog appreciate my articles, some send me messages with questions or additional information that benefits my articles or just share their appreciation for Roel’s World (see “README!”). I even received a few donations (that nicely covered the hosting costs of this blog). 

I am very happy that the time and efforts made are appreciated, that makes blogging a lot of fun. 

So, dear visitors, if you have any questions or you have some suggestions about stuff that relates to what I have written about, then you are welcome to “say hi” and share what’s on your mind. I always respond to received messages the first moment I have some free time. 

Enjoy your visit to Roel’s World!


I frequently receive e-mails with requests to host blog articles written by others on Roel’s World. Roel’s World though, is a personal blog with articles that express my personal views and opinions on a variety of subjects that I have a personal interest in. It’s “Roel’s World, my world” after all. I therefor do NOT accept these request, so please do not waste both our times and refrain from sending such requests.
