Three years ago this blog made its debut as a collection of thoughts about life. It quickly morphed into a place to explore Swedish in an caustic, witty, and artsy way. I learned it was easier and way more entertaining to discuss Swedish life and habits without the silver lining.
For readers it’s a blog to share opinions about life in Sweden, dating, more dating, and cultural differences.
LiS writes about everything from the harsh opinions about Sweden (receiving numerous “fuck you”s) to irritation with buying alcohol and renting an apartment to a happy swedish and happy indian engagements to the sad truth that violence is in Sweden too.
Reading happy stories is rarely entertaining (unless it involves cute pandas or bunnies or baby animals). What makes stories interesting involve heart break, emotion, occasional wrath and grief.
When I first started in 2007 I had 5-10 visitors a day. Today, thanks to all my readers and passer bys, the blog has 600 unique visitors a day.
Tjooohoooo!!! Thank you all lovely readers for your support and witty comments throughout the past three years. Let’s hope for more to come!
