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:
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’ sÃ¸keblogg
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:
