Do I think I can blog?

Thanks to my friend, Hopp i form Maria, I'm about to find out.

A Swedish Metro blog is hosting a blog contest to find the best Swedish blogger of 2008 (you can find the contest here, but it's in Swedish). Deadline for entry is May 9 (today). I'll let you know what the results are...

On another self-promoting note, my record of blog visits for one day is 26. Yay! It might not sound like a lot, but I know I have about 10 regular readers and some random ones who stop by from time to time. I probably click on my blog, too, every once in a while... When I get up to 100 visits in a day, I'll throw a party and you guys are all invited.

Let's do a test right now. If you read my blog, please leave a comment to this post and introduce yourself to the other readers. Thanks!

Hello, of course I check your blog almost every day!

I am a friend from high school (?) who hasn't seen my dear Vickan in a very long time... :(

Hey Vik, I check your blog every day through your RSS feed. Hope that counts :-). I am a friend from Germany and will hopefully see you again by the end of the year :-)

Hi there, I'm a Swedish blog friend and we know each other (sort of!) through other people as well. I'm sure your blog will grow!

Vickan said...

Hi all, thanks for your introductions! Thanks also for reading, commenting and sharing my blog experience!

I stumbled on your blog at random, but thought I would leave a comment to up your numbers. Hope that makes your day a little brighter.

Vickan said...

That does indeed brighten my day! Thank you.

I'm a regular reader and I'm glad to be a friend of Vickan and Albie. I taught journalism and media studies when Vickan was in senior high in Sweden - some years ago.

Hi Vik. I'm Walt. I sit across the way from you at work. I too blog, my address is www.bigdaddygoudaonline.com

My record for visits in one day is 165. I usually average about 60 a day, however I've had my blog for over 2 years and I promote it a little through facebook and myspace. So getting 20 to 30 visits a day just for existing is pretty good.

Vickan said...

Walt, thanks. I hope to get up there in the numbers, too, some day. But maybe I don't have as many friends as you do...

I will try to promote my blog a bit more, too. Not sure if I can do it on Facebook. I do write occasionally for a Swedish-American newspaper called Nordstjernan and they put a tag line with my blog address. Of course, most of the Nordstjernan subscribers are way too old to use computers...

I am late to this. But I am Sarah, and I sit across an excessively-tall cubicle wall from Vickan three days per week. :)

Hi Sarah. Now you know about the contest!
