GullBloggen

Update: I actually won the competition!

This blog, www.eirikso.com has been nominated by one of the biggest newspapers in Norway (Dagbladet) to the prestigious title “Gullbloggen”, or in plain english: they want to find the best Norwegian blogs.

First, huge amounts of blogs where nominated by the readers of Dagbladet. Then, a panel of experts selected three blogs in the following categories:
1. Politics
2. Technology
3. “Under 20”
4. Open Category

Actually, I did not know about this, and would like to thank the person that nominated Eirikso.com under “Technology”.

The other nominated blogs in the technology category are in Norwegian, but very interesting as well:
Espen Andersen: Tversover
Jo Christian Oterhal: Jo Christian Oterhals’ søkeblogg

Of course, now I need your votes! The page is in Norwegian, but I have provided some nice instructions and translations. Click the image to see a bigger version:

  1. Ingen gullblogg for bedrifter

    De nominerte til Gullbloggen er kunngjort med stor brask og bram, inndelt i fire kategorier: Politikk, Tekno, U20 og Ã…pen klasse. Det er verdt Ã¥ merke seg at det i kÃ¥ringen ikke er egne kategorier for bedrifter og organisasjoner. Likevel…

    I doubt there’d be many Australian beef cattle farmers like myself voting for you in Gullbloggen Eirik however I’ve proudly cast my vote for your essential site. Thanks for the impromptu Norwegian lesson too. Regards, Simon Bedak “Lorraine”, Wagga Wagga, NSW Australia

  3. This is so freakin’ cool that I should win the contest on this vote alone!

    Thank you very much. Or, if you want another lesson in Norwegian:

    “Tusen takk!”
    (Directly translated to: “a thousand thanks” – that’s what we say for “Thank you very much” in Norwegian)

  4. The voting will close on the 4th of December. On the 6th they will reveal the site that won the price for best technology blog.

    So, right now I need as many votes as possible, and I have no idea how I am doing compared to the other sites…
