Traitor to the Swedish tongue
As you may have noticed, this blog is not written in Swedish, but in my previously posited language-of-the-most-good-books, hegemonic English. This is because I want as many interested readers (and correspondents) as possible. The blog's subject matter isn't exactly front page issues, reflecting the fact that I have very little knowledge of and interest in such things. But writing in English and marketing the blog through Technorati, I hope to reach a global scattering of oddballs who may enjoy the blog.
After less than three weeks, the blog has about 40 unique visitors daily. About 80% of them are located in Scandinavia. I can see several reasons for this: I began by marketing the blog to my friends and colleagues (you guys are of course more likely than the random netizen to share my interests), I write a lot about Scandinavia, and in particular a lot about Scandinavian archaeology. This subject is for some reason not a very big deal outside of northern Europe (unlike Scandinavian furniture design, cell phones and pornography).
Dear Reader, I'm thrilled to have you. Please feel free to drop me a line, just to say hi or to send me a link to something fun and bloggable. And do tell your friends. Peace!
