Dagen

As long as I can remember, there have been issues of Dagen in my parents’ home. For me, Dagen is the Christian Newspaper my grandparents subscribe to and my mother reads at night. There has been a constant expression at home “mummy reads the day at night.” It doesn’t make sense in English, but anyway. To this day my parents are still taking over all the issues of Dagen when, now only my grandmother has read them. I have to admit that I have never been an enthusiastic reader of Dagen. I’ve just browsed it through sometimes and read an article now and then that I have found interesting.

Since my mother started using the Internet more frequently, I sometimes get tips from her by e-mail about articles at Dagen.se. I always read the articles she suggests – my mother knows me and what I’m interested in – but during the past six months, I have not had to read the articles she has suggested. Because I have already read them. And that is not because I have become more devout during the past year.

Nah, the reason why I have started to read articles at Dagen.se spontaneously is from the beginning because of Emanuel Karlsten and his energetic twittering. But the more I have read Dagen.se the more I have felt the presence of the editorial staff by my side. Oops, now I was maybe overly spiritual, but what I mean is that they have succeeded in creating a relationship with their readers in a way I can’t really put my finger on.

Dagen.se seems responsive and modern, not nearly as dusty as the Christianity itself sometimes can be seen. They have made a name for themselves far beyond the Christian communities in this country. When it comes to the web they have made their way up to the same levels – if not even higher – as the biggest newspapers in Sweden. Thanks to Emanuel Karlsten they are also well known and read by the “social media bubble”. Therefore, I wasn’t very surprised today when Medievärlden nominated Dagen.se for “Newspaper of the year, digital dedia”. They are well worth both the nomination and the prize in my opinion. I can only say Big congratulations to Dagen.se and its editorial staff.

Skyltat (Swedish humor)

Skyltat.se is a Swedish site with photos of funny signs, which sometimes can be very entertaining. This week I have contributed with two photos to the site.

In the entrance to the house where I am living there is a notice board. I found a notice there last week which made me smile a bit.

When I lived in Sundsvall there was a little flower shop in my neighbourhood. They used to have this sign outside. That picture is at least 6 years old but it wouldn’t surprise me if they still use it.

Google fail

Two days ago Andreas Ekström was in an interview in the Swedish tv-programme Agenda about Google and how they practically “own” the Internet. During the interview he said that he wanted 1st of September (today) to be the no google day. I didn’t feel prepared for this, I know I am addicted to Google and some of its features and didn’t have time to experiment with alternatives today. And Andreas Ekström himself failed before time was 7am by opening his Google calendar. Anyway… the no-google day turned to another level tonight when the following happened.

This is what is facing me at the moment when I try to access my gmail.

Google is using twitter ofcourse to inform their users.

And in case you wonder why the pictures aren’t centred proportionally, I don’t know. Do you?

Last weeks worth to read

I have read some good blog posts and articles during the last week that I want to share with you. Most of them are in Swedish so bare with me Danes, Dutchmen and Aussies, (I don’t know but maybe I have readers from other countries as well?)

Last weekend was also the weekend when sswc took place. Since I’m not old and experienced when it comes to  social media I didn’t even think of going there the first time I read about it. But the week before the camp I felt like I wanted to go there as well (but since my brother turned 30 I probably would’ve had problems to go anyway). Here are some selected posts about the camp that gives a hint about what seemed to be a very successful weekend.

My big brother

In less than an hour I am taking the train to Norrköping. From Norrköping I’ll go with my parents to Värnamo where my aunt and uncle lives. We’ll just stay there over the night and then carry on to Helsingborg and my brother. And tomorrow we’re going to celebrate his 30th birthday… wait… did I just write 30? I think I did, and that means we are getting old. My “big” brother and I. So, we have grown up, we live 555km from  each other but… it was like yesterday we were running around in the garden by our summer cottage or played tennis outside the house in Haga where we were living. And it was like yesterday I beat him in computer games at our C64.

Me, my brother and the C64.

Another Twitter experience

Yesterday I twittered “Looking for a cheap hotel in Barcelona. Any ideas?” Today when I came home I had four new followers on Twitter and I had also got replies to my tweet from hotels and booking companies. Since I booked my hotel already yesterday evening I had no use for those tweets and I didn’t even check out their prices. But I didn’t expect that response really. It seems like the travel companies have understood how to use Twitter for marketing.
