My new rings that I love for fall

Bought these two rings over the weekend from H&M, and the best part was that they only cost me 99 Kr..
Cheap in my country I can assure you....

Who is the girl in Oslo?

WHO I AM :)



Hi all. 

I was sitting here working on a new guest post when it suddenly hit me. 
Maybe some info about me on my own blog was a good idea.
Some people know who I am, but not many...
As DJ Myles would say "the girl is incognito", and quite frankly I like it that way...it keeps my readers guessing....

However it may be a good idea to add some details...

So here goes.
I am a 32 year old woman from Oslo, that have been blogging since 2009.
The posts/photos I write/take are from Oslo, and shows how wonderful the city is.
Don´t get me wrong my city experiences problems/challenges like every other capitol around the world but for the most part it works well. Most of the people living here love Oslo with all their hearts... 
I live on the west side of the city. 
Here you can find some great Shopping/photo galleries/museums and awesome coffee - stockfleths shops (press the last link, and be taken to my nr one coffee place my great city has to offer.)
The capitol has really changed over the last couple of years,and we are slowly but surely becoming a lot more urban/hip city/people.

If there is anything you would like me to research, and post about please let me know through the blog or e-mail me:


Thanks for reading.
love the girl in Oslo
p:s this piture was taken quiet some time ago,and is part of my coffee guide to Oslo series ....

Blogging course.


Some points to think about if you want your blog to grow over time.

  • -       Blogg every day or as often as you can.
  • -       Think quality in both photos, and the written word – never be happy with status quo.
  • -       Check your spelling as often as you can .
  • -       Make your content relevant to your site – don´t do post on tomatoes of you are in fact writing about bananas.
  • -       Don´t write more then about 200 words in one paragraph.
  • -       Have both writing/photo in each post.

I have a better blogging plan now days.
Hope you like what I am doing this time around !
If you have any tips you would like to share…email me.

Have a great day:)

Blogging : Personal sites versus non personal sites.


Personal sites versus non personal sites:

There are a few blogs out there that I read on a regular basis, and for some reason they are all filled with very personal info like the theblondesalad - on a boat trip.Information and pictures that I would have a hard time sharing if I started to really think about the consequences. For instant anyone can download as much of your content as they want, and you loose control over every piece of information on that one post. The person downloading can then use that photo/writing for anything they want…and you can end up on a porn site….That would never be my idea of fun…
However when you do look at these really personal sites they have a few points in common that makes me rethink the whole idea of a non personal site.
Here comes a few points these bloggers have really understood.
Your site gets:
-       More or less instant fame
-       Many more followers then non personal sites
-       A lot more hits, and better Google ranking
-       Many reactions from readers, and overall a lot more activity,
-       More business coming the bloggers way, and faster.
-       Many more opportunities


What do you think?

Love from the girl…
