Picked up blogging not so long ago, in May 2011 and I'm putting a lot of time and energy in that.. It's a blog with no fixed theme, but rather a bunch of stuff, that just randomly pops into my mind. The 25th of March 2012 I moved over to self - hosted Wordpress. Now I'm suddenly the owner of The JanBierens dot Com.

Usually I try to keep my posts in my circles. Sometimes I feel the need to publish something publicly. 

I have to say I don't add people back if there's no information as to who they are - or pretend to be - in their profile. And to be frank you can be anyone you like, as long as you're honest about it.
I understand that Google+ is an Global Network, but I find it hard to communicate with people I cannot understand. If your language is - or includes - Dutch, English, German, French I'll try my damnedest to understand and communicate with you.
Plusses and add me when you're interested in:
+Digital Photography
+A good discussion that goes somewhere...

I also do some amateur digital photography. Plans? Lots, Time? to little.
If - and I mean if - I grow up I want to travel more, go places and exploring different cultures.

Open minded and a thinker sometimes. Psychology interests me, especially "group behaviour",   Fun and a good conversation +1.
