Welcome to MSchnitzler2000! Thank you for your interest in my personal website!My name is Markus Schnitzler. I'm 40 years old and I live in Düren, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. In 2005, I graduated from university with a degree Magister Artium (MA) in German philology. Now I work as in several jobs in the online office of the local newspaper, as a texter in an internet company and as a tutor. I combined my interests in writing and the internet to create this website.
Content of my website
This is my self portrait. I give you some insights into my personal life and I tell you something about my career. I present my home town Düren-Niederau. In my blog "Kein Blatt" I write down my thoughts and ideas. Furthermore I ask you to support social projects like blood donation.
Volleyball is my passion in sports. I support the German Bundesliga teams SWD Powervolleys Düren (men) and Ladies in Black Aachen (women). As volleyball is badly represented in the German media, I try to get more attention to the most beautiful sport. I also like the play in the sand: beach volleyball.
The young Swiss singer Stefanie Heinzmann combines excellent music and a very amiable personality. She's my absolute favorite in music business and I follow her since she won a casting show. Some time ago I saw a concert of the East German band Jenix, who got me at once.
I read a lot and I own three shelfs full of books. Novels are in my library as well as nonfiction books. My collection of films is also quite large. I prefer thrillers, historical stuff and comedies. The existence of this website proves that I use the internet extensively and show you a list of interesting, useful links. If you are interested in some intelligent statements, take a look at my collection of quotes.
The internet keeps us up-to-date on all events worldwide. I show you some regional and global news feeds. Furthermore, I have some information about the media who produce the news. As you know from my biography, I have studied linguistics. Language is a very interesting topics and I give you a short introduction for German, English, Latin and my dialect Kölsch. Stefan Raab is the greatest German entertainer. Unfortunately, we can't see him on TV anymore.
Social Media and Web 2.0
Follow me also on these websites: Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Wikipedia (all links are external). You always see these links to my profiles in the upper right edge of the header.
Besides my website I write two blogs in German language. In my blog „Kein Blatt“ (an ambiguous title) I write about everything which appears to me in my everyday life. „Erlebnis Sprache“ (Experience language) is about phenomena concering language.Thank you for your interest!Markus Schnitzler
