New Look, New Blogger Posted by on May 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

Things are happening here at Transparent! The Norwegian blog has been moved from to You may also have noticed that it’s got a brand new look. Well, at least it’s on its way to getting one… Hopefully the designers will find some neat solutions so that the blog will be even better than it was before…

And yes, as you’ve guessed, this isn’t Kari writing… :’-(
For personal reasons, she’s had to step down and say ha det bra! to all her readers on this site.
The good news is that the Norwegian blog is coming back to life!
Like a troll that has been sleeping too long, it is now ready to leave the cave and take a few steps in the sunlight…

Being the ”new kid on the blog”, I’ll do my best to continue in Kari’s trail. Of course I can’t write in exactly the same way that she did, but nevertheless I hope you’ll find my posts useful as well as entertaining… Expect at least three posts a month… 🙂

Some of you may know me from the Danish blog. Wait – why is a Dane writing about Norwegian?
That’s a good question, and the short answer is that I am quite fluent in both languages. I’ve studied Scandinavian languages and literature in both Norway and Denmark, and I’ve got loads of childhood memories from Norway, where I spent many of my ”growing-up” years. I’ve still got family ”up there”, so I visit Norway once or twice a year… (But yes, Danish is my first language, and when Denmark and Norway are footballing against each other, I cheer on Denmark… So I’d better keep away from sports on the Norwegian blog!)

Gleder meg til å skrive for dere! I’m looking forward to writing for you!

Keep learning Norwegian with us!

About the Author: Bjørn A. Bojesen

I was born in Denmark, but spent large parts of my childhood and study years in Norway. I later returned to Denmark, where I finished my MA in Scandinavian Studies. Having relatives in Sweden as well, I feel very Scandinavian! I enjoy reading and travelling, and sharing stories with you! You’re always welcome to share your thoughts with me and the other readers.
