Good morning everyone!
Now when I am so called in the late pregnancy, the whole thing with being tired, sleeping all the time, suddenly changes to being a real early bird who wakes up 5.30. It has happened every pregnancy and I know it´s my body who prepares itself for the baby and wakening nights that are coming;=)
So, what to do than to get up early and start the day!
A lovely morning here and sun is slowely coming up even if it´s still dark outside:
I love the blue sky and I hope for a day with some sunshine;=)
I don´t know how big blogging is in your countries but here in Sweden it´s a big thing and even if it started many years ago now, it´s still a big thing and many celebrities, singers, authors and so on has blogs they update several times a day. Maybe it´s due to us here in Sweden being very open and outspoken (not all of us, but most;=) And the biggest blogs are followed by the yellow press and they take lots of blog posts and put in the newspaper daily. So, it´s a way for press and also, everyone, to follow people they like and their lifes. Can be a nice thing but also a very bad thing, since if you write something you feel strongly about and it goes against other peoples views, it can be blown up in the press and the hunt is on. One of our big bloggers and a TV profile had this happening to her this week and the "hunt" was on! Front page in the evening paper, 1000 comments whereof most hate attacked her post and so called "experts" were quoted in the newspaper telling how stupid she was! Guess she wasn´t so happy this week, but mostly the blogs are appreciated for what they are. A way of showing yourself, sell yourself or your work, talk about fashion, music, your interest or as some of the biggest bloggers, provoke people to get more readers.
To show you some of the blogs we have here, and some of the most popular ones, I´ll put them here so you can see how different they all are;=)
One of the biggest celeb blogs up there is Carolina Gynning, who started out as a winner of Swedish big brother many years ago but today she is an actor, painter and model. She also got her first baby a while ago;=)
Then one site that I follow mostly is the one belonging to the magazine "MAMA" where many celebs blog about their life and their kids. Here are some of the ones I like:
Anine Bing - a model, designer and mother of a daughter and now pregnant again with the second child;
Swedish singer Carola, who has been in the business for a long time;=) She writes about adopting her daughter and about her son, her faith and singing and so on:
Jenny Silver, who also is at my management Hagenburg. She started out as a singer in my mum´s "old" band and then she has been in different bands, musicals, Eurovision (she is gonna compete in the Swedish one in february again) and also a newly become mother:
Then I also like this beautiful blog, which is a decoration blog but also some baby photos here and there - Caisa K:
Another cute blog is called Englas showroom and here Engla shows fashion and her life with her kids:
One big fashion blog is Sofis Snapshots, which is done by Sofi Fahrman, who is a fashion blogger, TV presenter, author and soon to be mum. She also is the editor of the fashion magazine Sofis Mode:
An even bigger fashion star, who you might have heard of, is Elin Kling, and her blog called Style by Kling is big, not only here in Sweden but in the whole world. She has her own fashion brand, she has a fashion magazine, she has done co-ops with H&M and Guess and also being in a campaign for Louis Vuitton.
Then when it comes to cooking and recipes, this is one of my favorites: 56kilo. She has made a cook book that just came out and blogs about food and she also lives in the same town as me;=)
Another singer who has a big blog is Charlotte Perrelli. She also has made an exercising book, sells her own fitness products, perfume and body lotions.
Another great fashion blogger, who has a really cool style, in my opinion, is Sania Claus. She just has a crazy and fun style and I like it;=)
Then this blog I like cause she has great fashion taste, makes nice clothes and her photos of her kids are just adorable;=) Isabel Adrian, who blogs from L.A, is a clothes designer and together with Steve Angelo, member of the DJ-trio called Swedish House Maffia
Then to get some nice photos and stories from New York, Anna Blom´s blog, is nice to look into
Then for some positive inspiration, life inspiring words every day, I follow this great author, who after a life-changing depression started to view life differently and now writes inspiring books. Karin Isberg:
So there you got some info about how blogging is here and also some blogs to look into. Maybe one or many will interest you too;=)
Enjoy this day now and enjoy life!!
