Blogs in Swedish Posted by jennie on Mar 30, 2010 in Culture, Swedish Language, The Swedish blog team
There has been a few requests about good Swedish blogs lately and jag är inte den som är den! But what is a good blog? To use another great Swedish expression, smaken är som baken – delad (Your taste is like your butt -divided) and there is a strong possibility that the blogs I like might not be your cup of tea. So, this is – once again – why I need you guys. Please share your favourite blogs (preferably in Swedish) and I can make the list longer. But for now, here’s a random selection of a few blogs – in Swedish, by Swedes – about anything and everything. Happy reading and let the blog sharing begin!
Life in general-stuff:
I have said it before and I promise, I won’t say it again. Writer Alex Schulman’s blog is filled with brilliant thoughts, great observations and fun glimpses of his and his family’s everyday life. Alex brother Calle Schulman also writes a great blog, voted one of the best blog of 2009 in Sweden. You can find it here.
Julia Skott is young a journalist and multi blogger that writes on and runs several different blogs. This is her own personal one, but I strongly recommend to nose around her links. If you are lucky, you’ll end up here, on a brilliant technical blog written by ten female gadget nerds.
A blog written by a woman wo has children together with Sweden’s most famous actor, Mikael Persbrant AND is the daughter of one of Sweden’s most famous musicians, Ulf Lundell, must be interesting, surely. But of course! Read Sanna Lundell’s blog here.
Lotta Gray is a famous gossip journalist, wife and mother whose life drastically changed two years ago when she was diagnosed with colon cancer. Read about her life and struggle here.
Poppony is a blog about anything vaguely cultural, both Swedish and international. A must read for music/movie/tv-junkies. Kulturbloggen is another great blog in the same field, great stuff written by great people.
If books do the trick it for you, this is without a doubt the blog for you. And – if you have kids and would like to explore the beautiful world of Swedish (and international) children’s books, Bokunge is a brilliant place to start.
2010 is election year in Sweden, and if you want to keep up with what’s happening on our political stage, Politkerbloggen is the place.
2010 is not only election year, it’s the big fat royal wedding year! Both princesses are getting married and if royalites, princesses and weddings is your bag, make sure to click here.
One again, I must recommend Bloggportalen. There you can find over 50 000 links to Swedish blogs, personal and professional, divided either into categories or geographically.
Okay, that’s 12 blogs to start with from me. Your turn now. Your favourite blog in Swedish is…
