Blogging in other languages at Should I create a different account?

I am originally from a Portuguese speaking country, Brazil, and I have plans to start blogging also in Portuguese as there's a "lack" of technical articles in the language and unfortunately there's also a lack of English skills among the Brazilian population where 5% only of the population are able to speak/read English according to the statistics.

I would really like to help people getting started with technology and development there, I don't live in Brazil anymore for many years but when I was there I participated of groups to teach students Programming and I really loved it and I also used to blog in Portuguese in another platform. But now that I know I want o keep blogging here I really like the community and the platform that is being built here.

Any recommendations, opinions? What are the good practices? Should I have a different account for blogging in a different language? I feel like yes but I've seen some people doing differently and using the same account.

Looks like there are not many people with interest in blogging in multiple languages around. I decided to go for 2 different accounts so I don't annoy any followers with content in a language they can't understand. Will share my learnings and considerations here if any in the future.
