    I'd stick to the language you're most fluent in.

    You don't have clear goals and I think you'd have more success being understood in Italian and a better experience of being a blog owner.

    What is the goal of your blog? If it is a global goal, must be English!

    It depends the purpose of your blog ,if its dedicated for people in Italy then no need to write in english ,but if you plan to sell globaly then you need to write it in english to achieve more clients

    Exactly This! Write it in both English and Italian. You can create two versions of the same website (1) English (2) Italian and host it on the same domain in a subfolder. This will actually double your content and make your website more appealing to search engine spiders. Plus, you will also get internal backlinks in the the form of "translate page" buttons on both versions of your site. Double the advertisement space too, double the chances of someone clicking and staying.

    English is always preferable, but since you will be gluent in italian start with your language and do start putting your ideas in english and probably convert

    Choose the language that is more comfortable for you and that you like best. The one on which it is easier for you to express your thoughts. You have to know it well so that people enjoy reading you.

    It also depends on the theme of your blog. If it's, for example, about your lifestyle, then maybe it will be closer to the Italians. I think you better know that.

    Italy is not a small country, in terms of blogging there is room for development

    It totally depends on your goals. If you want to reach the worldwide people then you must go with English but if your target is limited then you may go with Italian language.

    First be comfortable with your writing. Then write in both language to achieve your success. If Italian language has less competition, you will reach and shine easier. English takes time but hardwork never fails.
