Micro.blog kan vara lite stillsamt, här märks att det som socialt medie inte har samma stora antal användare som Twitter och inte heller samma algoritmer som boostar vissa inlägg och visar trender. Det är också det som gör stämningen så trevlig på Micro.blog. Det är oerhört snällt, dock lite väl många Apple-fantaster och kodare som gärna pratar… om Apple och kod. Jag skulle gärna se fler användare på mb och gärna fler som postar på svenska.

It was cold but sunny and it was the perfect thing to do today. Me, my wife and the twins drive to our beloved little house to clean it before spring comes hard. Today is what we in Sweden call “vårdagjämning”, the first day of the year when the day is as long as the night. From now on the day is becoming longer and longer all the way to midsummer. It’s not a public holiday or a day you celebrate with friends and family but it’s a day you look forward to. Winter in the Nordics are dark and long.

I sat down to write an old school letter, on paper

I love this digital way of fast writing that goes online immediately. All I need is my smartphone. All my notes at work (journalist) are digital notes as well. Back in the days I used paper and pens but the transcription part, when the handwriting had to be transformed to digital text, took way too much time so I gave that up. For the same reason I try not to rely too much on recorded interviews. If a record I see the audio file as a backup, I can go back and listen if I missed a detail or if I have to double check something. Sometimes I forget to make good notes during a conversation/interview and that’s always a hassle afterwards. With all that said I start to re-evaluate the analog writing, all handwritten things. There’s something special about it, something that never can be digitalised: the feeling of holding a pen in hand and move it with just the right amount of pressure onto the paper. You create words. And if you get something wrong you will have some problems. It’s very hard to delete words on paper without traces. The handwriting acquire thinking in advance. It’s not always good, quite the opposite actually if you ask me. One of the good things with the kind of writing I’m doing right now is that it’s very direct, I’m hammering down my words to use the expression TMO used in a well written post about blogging the other day. Yesterday I really had to do some thinking before I set down to write. In the first time in many years I wrote a classic enveloped letter to an old friend, a relative that means a lot to me but who I rarely see or talk to. To write a classic letter during Christmas time felt like the right thing to do. It won’t interfere. I hope she’s able to read my handwriting though. Maybe I’ll get a response! When was last time you got a handwritten letter?

Stockholm in snow

I drove to Tallkrogen to pick up my daughter at her friend. It’s been a couple of weeks since a used the car so I had to spend fifteen minutes or so with cleaning it from ice and snow. The winter has finally come to Stockholm. Tallkrogen was adorable in the winter outfit, snow and all on the roofs on the small houses crowding the area.

I got a new job (I’m getting back to local news)

Now it’s official. I am happy to announce that I am going to start a new job. After 18 months as a news director at the business magazines Fastighetsnytt and Byggindustrin (about the real estate and construction business in Sweden and the Nordics) I’m going to be news director at Dagens Nyheter’s metropolitan division, the section that covers the Stockholm area. I am looking forward to it. A lot. Local news is the best.

Good morning mb. It’s been a while. The dark season is here in Stockholm and the pandemic is far from over. Actually it’s getting worse. I would have gone to a restaurant with my two best friends tonight but we had to cancel. And that’s fine, everybody has to cancel everything except work and school, but it makes life very slow. What if there was no internet? Books are the best but also communication.

You see that dark building? There used to be offices and a parking garage. Now all is empty. The owner, a real estate company connected to a big Swedish pension fund, is waiting for a permission to replace the whole thing with new apartment buildings. It’s been empty for years.

Apple Watch users, how's the recording function?

Thursday. Listening to a podcast, putting together a newsletter for work. I asked my followers in Twitter about the Apple Watch and I am not completely convinced that’s an item I need. I have been thinking I would use the recording function and if you are using that please tell me if it’s working good. I often get good ideas for articles and come up with certain formulations when I run or walk and I have to make a note right away, otherwise the thought is lost. Apple Watch users, are that function working properly?

All you Apple folks on Micro.Blog! I keep wondering if I should buy an Apple Watch or not. You who have one, what’s good?

Good morning everyone. This is how I started my day. I had to force myself to get up and away but now, afterwards, it was really worth it. 🏃🏼‍♂️

Driving north again. It’s been a couple of days. Not great nor disastrous.

Spending a couple of days in the southeastern part of Sweden. The internet is very slow. Hope you all doing fine. One interesting thing we saw today was rockcarvings. This one is picturing a man with an erect penis raising his hands in the sky.

Good morning. It’s Sunday. Also known as Runday. I’ll meet with my summer hangout friend Calle in two hours. Then we’ll run. 🏃🏼‍♂️

scheduleJuly 18, 2020

Went to the city of Katrineholm to have dinner. Had a great vegetarian meal with celeriac.

scheduleJuly 15, 2020

Time for a run. I wanna do it before the others are up so I set the alarm. Now I’m laying in a warm bed wondering if running is such a good idea after all. But I know it will do me good. The rest of the day will be better if I do this. 🏃🏼‍♂️

Do you have an old device you really love?

scheduleJune 28, 2020

It’s sunday morning. Sun is shining. I am still in bed but will shortly get out of bed, into the kitchen and put our ancient coffee brewer to work. It’s something wrong with it, the temperature is a bit too high, but that makes the coffee extra good. Do you have an old device you really love?

My plan for all my blogs in brief points

scheduleJune 23, 2020

I have now a plan for all my blogs. It won’t last forever but for a while:

• Micro.blog, no changes accept from the name of my domain. Now it’s DigitalMaximalist.com (thank you @timeaffluent). Mostly in english, mostly short, frequently updated. I reply all mentions!

andreasjennische.se, no changes. Always in swedish, mostly longer posts about media, journalism or Stockholm.

Write.as, new here is that I from now on will do the ”hundred days in a row” challenge, in english. Read number one here. The inspiration comes from @maique and the daily Write.as-blogger TMO. That’s a frequent blogger!

Bearblog.dev, new here is that I will switch into swedish for a while and my annual #torplife blogging, where I tell short stories from my family life during summer days in the country side of Sweden.

scheduleJune 22, 2020

I have an invite to Hey. I’ll be glad to give it away.

scheduleJune 21, 2020

Now off to a morning run together with my summer friend Calle.

scheduleJune 20, 2020

Good day Micro.blog. Today is the day efter Midsummer’s eve. I am not hungover and the weather is nice. Hope you all feeling fine.

scheduleJune 19, 2020

I really like the Typewriter theme for M.b, but I really don’t like that centered text. Centered text is the worst. How do I change that? Is it possible without any coding skills?

scheduleJune 19, 2020

Started Midsummer eve’s morning with a good run🏃🏽‍♀️. Now a shower in the garden hose. (Right, I’m not in the city of Stockholm this weekend). How is your day?

scheduleJune 17, 2020

But the common factor of newsletters, podcasts and video is that they allow us to spend extended periods with a single voice - or small groups of voices. You get to learn about the diversity of their work, and see different perspectives. You develop relationship, and within relationship grows trust.

I really like your newsletter @adders. Thank you for your hard work.

scheduleJune 16, 2020

Another good thing. After this post I got a very kind email from the founder of Bearblog. Big ups to him.

scheduleJune 16, 2020

In a couple of weeks I’ll give up my domain frequentlydoing.org by the way. I’ll switch my Micro.blog account to something else. Never liked it much.

scheduleJune 16, 2020

Good day at work. And now a beer and some food in the afternoon sun with an old friend. Feel good about life.

scheduleJune 15, 2020

Good night. New day coming up. Got to get some rest.

Good night microbloggers of the world. It’s late here in Sweden and I got work to do tomorrow.

Yimby vs Nimby in Minneapolis, this article reminds me of Stockholm

scheduleJune 13, 2020

Really interesting article from Washington Post. We have the same debate in Stockholm, whether duplexes or triplexes should be allowed in areas with only one family houses, or not.

In Minneapolis, much of the opposition has come from residents who already own single- family homes. A related factor, springing from the debate over income and density, has been race and the role that single-family housing plays in keeping housing segregated.

As cities rethink single-family zoning, traditional ideas of the American Dream are challenged - The Washington Post

23 pictures of Donald Trump

scheduleJune 7, 2020

I reminded this poster attack on Trump done in Stockholm november 2016, a few days before the election in the USA. Behind it all were Pen Store (what it sounds like, a shop for pens) and Acne (a clothing brand and an advertising agency). I wrote about in the local newspaper I was working for at the time.

Am I hating on my neighbourhood for being like this right now? Well, no. The monday morning stroll was like walking in a painting.

The lake Aspen. In swedish it’s the name of a fish and a tree, in defite form. When I googled it I found out it’s the same in english which I didn’t know. Aspen it’s a beautiful place. It’s where me and my friends hung out hot summer days during our teenage years. We jumped off the cliffs into the water and made bonfires. Now I am back there with kids of my own and their friends. It makes me feel a special kind of joy.

scheduleMay 31, 2020

Making coffee. The next couple of hours will be spent down by the lake. What a great summer day it is. Sun bursting. Everything in bloom. We are very safe here. Sending thoughts to everyone not feeling safe right now. There’a a lot of bad things going on in the world right now.

Outdoor activities are cooler than ever

scheduleMay 26, 2020

The corona pandemic is changing every day life. It also changes the non-everyday life. There won’t be as much travelling, parties or other social interactions as usual this summer. The situation makes outdoor activities more interesting than ever. If you are outside (while keeping social distance) you are able to hang out with a friend or your parents. When we have to stay home instead of going somewhere for weekends or vacation the outdoors will draw attention.

Get into the wild!

I think this is good. And for me being out in the wild just became easier than ever. I just got a solar panel phone charger and a grindstone for my axe from my wife as a birthday gift. What a nice present.

Birthday times two

Johannes is one of my best and oldest friends. We got to know each other when we were around 16–17 years old and into hardcore punk. His birthday is the 25 of May and mine is the 26th. We celebrated tonight by going out and drink a lot of beer. It was fun and made us feel younger than we are.

Today is going to be a very hectic day. I better get on with it.

How real estate market will change due to corona

scheduleMay 24, 2020

I found this very interesting by @adders. I have been working as a local news reporter for a little mote than ten years but last year a changed job and now I am covering commercial real estate and construction market. The discussion about how office space will change due to the pandemic is lively over here in Sweden, but I think you have another interesting point in how home space might change as well. I wonder when I see the first apartment advertised with “has a working space” or “is home office compatible”.

Am I going to buy another domain or not?

I certainly don’t need one more.

scheduleMay 24, 2020

Good morning microbloggers of the world. Let me tell you about the start of my day. I got straight out of bed into my running shoes. It’s a perfect morning for running up here, sunny but chilly. Behind me in the picture is one of all gravel roads around here and a big yellow colza field. This afternoon me and my family are getting back to Stockholm for another hectic week of work. But hey, let’s not talk about that just yet.

I now have a plan for my Micro.blog. It will be my blog in english. In that way I stay open for interesting conversations with people from alla around and that’s actually something that happens quite often I’ve reckoned. Such interaction is what makes internet the fantastic web it is. My swedish blogging will be held at andreasjennische over at Posthaven. I’m glad I got back to Micro.blog.

scheduleMay 21, 2020

I realize getting back to Micro.blog that I am constantly looking at Mentions. No good. It’s a behaviour I want to get away from. And a reason I deleted the Facebook app.

Being a dad

scheduleMay 20, 2020

Being a dad is the best and the worst. You’re given unconditional love, but you’re also given the feeling of shortage, of not being good enough. I have a 16 year old stepson and 10 year old twins in my life. All three are unique individuals (no surprise, aren’t we all) but as a parent you have to remind yourself of that now and then. It would be easier for me and my wife if they were all pretty much the same when it comes to interests and needs, but also boring.

Myself, my wife and our twins left Stockholm earlier today to go to our small summer house in the countryside. My youngest son, one of the twins, didn’t want to go this time. He wanted to stay home with his videogames. His older brother, the 16 year old, didn’t want to go either. We (me and my wife) let the oldest stay home for another day. He’ll catch a train tomorrow. The youngest had to go with us. He is now very disappointed. He thinks we’re doing him great unjustice. Well, his not old enough to stay home on his own. That’s nothing but classic parenting. It does leave me with a bad feeling though.

scheduleMay 20, 2020

Cm The first thing I do in the morning. I go straight into the kitchen to make some coffee. I stick to an old school coffee maker with filter. That’s the real deal. Cold brew, nespresso, espresso and all that is not for me. Good morning.

The iA Writer sync for micro.blog is the best feature. The editor gives you a fantastic feeling, even on mobile.

scheduleMay 19, 2020

Is anyone else here also on Write.as?

This will be my Micro.blog purpose

scheduleMay 19, 2020

I love blogging and have been doing it on for some years now. I’ve never had many readers, my blogging being some kind of diary writing and not many people are in to blogs anymore. But I like it for several reasons. I like to own my content and to know it will be shown as I like it be shown. Most of all it’s fun.

I also have been a hard user of social media such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. (At the moment I’m actually having a pause from all of the three mentioned because I want to see how my Iphone addiction will be affected. I’ll probably be using it as much as before but hopefully in a more creative way than dead eyed scrolling. I’ll get back to that in another blog post). Well, my point being here is that I have a problem stickning to one account. I have a old blog hosted my Blogger (that was from before, when I didn’t care as much about owning my content), another one over at Posthaven, a third at Write.as and this one at Micro.blog. Do I need this many blogs? No I don’t. I would be much easier to stick to just one. But I can’t stop myself from trying new cool blog services I happen to stumble upon. Last summer I read something about Micro.blog and really fell for the ambition and the friendly community that comes with it. After I while I stopped using Micro.blog though because I don’t like the actually writing tool. I know I could write wherever and paste it in the editor later but I tend to write and post immediately. But now it’s possible to write a piece on the great Ia Writer and post it to Micro.blog! You pulled me back in @manton.

That leaves me stuck with the problem of having to many blogs. Posthaven (made by people from Posterous that Twitter bought and killed) I like because of the simplicity and their promise of being there forever. It’s on Posthaven you find my home adress on internet as I call it and my custom domain bares my name. I write there now and then, always in swedish, and often about my work as a journalist or personal reflections. Write.as is a very simple blog service but impossible not to love. It has the best editor and all is very easy to handle on a phone. My domain on Write.as is called ndrs.work, even though I use it for a diary. And then we’re here on frequentlydoing.org hosted by Micro.blog. How am I going to handle all my blogs? Will I have to stop using one or two of them? Does the stacking require a more divided type of content, one single purpose for every blog? How are you all doing? Are you sticking to one?

I think I might keep on doing the Micro.blog for a while now, after all. But all my writing here is going to be in english. The community connected to Micro.blog isn’t much to have if you’re doing it all in swedish or some other language. Maybe this will be a purpose good as any.

Nu har Byggindustrin fått en ny sajt

scheduleMay 18, 2020

Det tog några veckor längre än planerat men nu så är den på plats, nya Byggindustrin.se. Den bygger på samma tekniska stomme Resumé, Dagens Media, Fastighetsnytt och som alla övriga B2B-sajter inom Bonnier News ska ha inom kort. Från redaktionens sida har vi lagt stor kraft på att få själva innehållsstrukturen rätt, när det gäller menyval och sektionssidor. Det tekniska teamet som lett arbetet har varit mycket proffsiga och trevliga att jobba tillsammans med. Jag har lärt mig mycket om både SEO och användarvänlighet. Nu hoppas jag på att Byggindustrin ska få samma skjuts trafikmässigt som Fastighetsnytt fick av att byta sajt.

scheduleMarch 21, 2020

Det är lördag i Coronastockholm och inget vet hur det ska bli. DN:s två stora artiklar idag gav inga nya svar huruvida barn smittar eller i vilken fas man smittar mest. Och att sjuttiplussarna gör som de vill är charmigt i teorin (jag tycker verkligen det), men faktum är ju att allas vårt beteende har effekt på vården för någon annan. I Bladet läste jag före detta Direktpress-kollegan Anna Sjögren om varför det är en dålig idé att bli smittad med flit (Anledningen är densamma som varför sjuttiplussarna inte ska frifräsa, det ökar risken att ytterligare intensivvårdsplatser behöver tas i bruk). Barnen hostar och jag har ont i huvudet. Brorsan är i karantän i lägenheten på Mallis och det lär dröja innan det blir vår på riktigt, vår som i att ha kul. Men det är lördag. Alltid något, typ.

Working from home accompanied by the kids – not a great combo

scheduleMarch 19, 2020

Today started as normal as it gets these corona days, the twins went to school and I sat down with my improvised home office. A while later both of them were home again. Their teacher sent them home after they had been caught coughing a couple of times. I have no reasen to question her judgement. But working home is a complete different thing when the children also are at home. I’m lucky they are ten years old. I have some collegues that are forced to work from home when they also have to take care of two and three year olds. I am not jealous.

I guess we all have to try a little bit extra to get all things going for the next couple of weeks. Corona is not gonna be here forever. And I am allowed to get ouside. Stockholm i still open. At least parts of it.

How has you corona thursday been?

Hjälp mig med alla mina bloggar? Hur ska jag göra?

scheduleMarch 18, 2020

Jag lyssnade på @jemostromMicro Monday i dag. Det var intressant. Det är något speciellt med oss svenskar och hur glada vi blir för att någon av oss får uppmärksamhet overseas.

Jag har inte varit länge på Micro.blog (och inte heller länge på internet jämfört med @jemostrom) men jag har provat en jävla massa olika bloggverktyg innan dess och ett av mina problem är att jag har så svårt att välja en och sedan hålla mig till den. Jag skulle vilja att jag verkligen fastnade för Micro.blog och bestämde mig för att det är här jag ska ha min egna plats på internet, men jag vet att det är alldeles för tidigt att lova något sådant.

Roligt med Micro.blog är dock att det faktiskt verkar vara ett community där folk är intresserade av och välvilligt inställda till varandra. Som ett Twitter för lite bohemiska akademiker typ.

Och det var kul att få lyssna på @jemostrom som sagt.

Ni andra som också har flera olika domäner och kanske använder olika tjänster, vad har ni för tips till mig? Jag har en blogg på svenska på Posthaven, en gammal (men inte släckt) på Blogger och så den här på Micro.blog.

Tidigare har jag också haft en blogg på Write.as (en tjänst som jag verkligen gillar) samt en på Postach.io då jag tidigare verkligen använde Evernote i högre grad än i dag. Hur ska jag tänka kring det här? Ska jag låta en blogg vara för arbetsrelaterade saker och en för allt det andra? Ska jag ha andreasjennische.se som en slags kontaktsida och bara blogga här? Vad säger ni?

Race report: Så var det att köra Västerås swimrun

scheduleAugust 31, 2019

För det första så är det ett mycket vackert lopp som utgår från Björnö friluftsområde i Västerås. För det andra är det jobbigare än vad det ser ut på papper. Inte löpningen, den är lätt och mestadels flack. Undantaget är passagen som ringlar sig upp på baksidan av en gammal skidbacke. Den biten är lika brant som Hammarbybacken, fast inte alls lika lång. Simningen däremot är jobbig. Två sträckor är riktigt långa med mina mått mätt, 650 respektive 550 meter. Dessutom var det betydligt vågigare än jag räknat med. Att simma i vågor är något helt annat än i en stilla sjö som bekant. På inrådan från min teammate Per, en helt ny bekantskap och en mer erfaren person på swimrun, lånade jag ett par handpadlar av honom. Jag har testat det förut men inte tyckt om den extra påfrestningen på axlarna. Men okej, sa jag och trädde på de rosa plastassietterna på mina händer. Det gick bättre än väntat, kanske fick jag lite extra skjuts, men jävlar vad trött jag blev i armarna. Per var dessutom en riktigt duktig simmare, stark och snabb, och jag hamnade efter hur hårt jag än slet. Jag måste helt enkelt träna lite mer simning om jag ska hålla på med swimrun, det gör väldigt stor skillnad på tiden (och upplevelsen) om du tappar på varje simsträcka. På uppsidan har vi löpningen. Där har mina korta men frekventa turer till och från jobbet gett resultat. Att springa drygt 15 kilometer under dagens lopp var inga som helst problem. Där var jag lätt i steget.

Sammanfattning: Jag har haft en kul lördag.

Västerås swimrun i punktform


Liten men entusiastisk


Ingen. Däremot en träningströja. Och nummerlinnet fick man behålla.


Bananer, bullar, bärs (alkoholfri Erdinger). Jag hade gärna ätit något som inte var sött men plus för ölen.


Trevlig och familjär. Omklädning på gräsmattan och väskförvaring i en grillstuga!


Par i herrar, par i damer, mixade lag och solo.


Strålande sol och runt 20 grader i vattnet. Varken jag eller Per körde med våtdräkt. Han hade swimpants med lite extra flytkraft, jag körde som jag gjorde i Katrineholm. Vanliga shorts och löparskor. En konsekvens av att vi bar nummerlinnet direkt på bar överkropp var att bröstvårtorna fick sig en redig omgång. Halvvägs in i loppet började det svida, i mål blödde det.


Vi kom i mål på 2:55:37. En knapp timme efter vinnarna men långt ifrån sist. Tre timmar är lång tid men när man väl håller på känns det inte så. Se alla resultat här.

Jag och Per en stund före start.

scheduleAugust 31, 2019

å var det lördag. Jag sitter vid frukostbordet och ömsom äter ömsom pillar på telefonen. Jag är lite nervös. Magen känns inte hundra och jag har liiite huvudvärk. Det är race day. Då känns det alltid fel. Det är som det ska.

Imorgon ger jag och min nyfunna lagkamrat Per järnet i Västerås swimrun

scheduleAugust 30, 2019

Det blir blött och det blir jobbigt och det blir riktigt kul. Efter att ha varit inne på att köra solo (man får det i det här loppet) så ändrade jag mig och började leta en lagkamrat på Facebook, där finns en ganska stor swimrun-community. Jag hittade Per. Eller om det var han som hittade mig. Vi snackade en gång på telefon och så var det klart. Imorgon ställer vi oss på startlinjen bara en kort stund efter att ha träffats för första gången. Jag känner på mig att det kommer att bli riktigt bra. Loppet går på Björnö i Västerås och mäter drygt 16 kilometer varav cirka tre kilometer är simning (fördelat på åtta sträckor). Löpningen känner jag mig bekväm med men frågan är om jag kommer att hålla jämna simtag med Per, som verkar vara en duktig simmare. Om jag är för långsam har vi kommit överens om att vi kopplar ihop oss med lina så får han dra mig lite i vattnet. Det blir en utmaning, jag har aldrig kört med lina förut. Bara att lära sig i så fall, trial and error som det heter. Vårt lag bär det lika enkla men stiliga namnet Ersson & Jennische. Jag återkommer med rapport.

Nu går jag hem och laddar inför morgondagens drabbning i Västerås. En öl (eller två) kan man väl räkna in som kolhydratboostning?

Ja, så är det. Jag har teamat upp med en kille som heter Per via Facebook och på lördag ska vi springsimma Västerås swimrun tillsammans som lag. Det ska bli skitkul. Vi har pratat en gång på telefon och när vi sammanstrålar på lördag förmiddag blir det första gången vi ses. Jag är lite nervös för att jag ska vara ett sänke i simningen men det har jag sagt till Per och han verkar vara villig och dra i så fall. Det här blir mitt fjärde swimrun-lopp totalt och det första som inte är Katrineholm swimrun och det första utan Dala Supercoachen som lagkamrat. Jag är mycket peppad. Detta blir ett äventyr på fler än ett sätt. Loppet är cirka 1,6 mil långt fördelat på åtta simningar och nio löpningar.

Grannen som gillar när det spökar: ”Då känner man sig aldrig ensam”

scheduleAugust 20, 2019

Throwback till bröllopet jag var på för ett par helger sedan då en av grannarna där ute berättade att det spökade så mycket i deras hus att barnen börjat prata om ”någon som är uppe och springer på nätterna.” Själv hörde grannen någon knalla omkring på övervåningen så fort han och hans fru råkade ligga på fel sida av sängen. Men han hade inget emot det. ”Då känner man sig aldrig ensam”, sa han. Som ungkarl bodde han i ett hus där spökerierna var ännu vanligare. En gång låg han på sängen och fick plötsligt en kapsyl kastad på sin mage. Den kom från köket. Han kastade tillbaka den, varpå den flög tillbaka direkt igen. Han hade inget emot det heller.

Sprang till och från jobbet idag igen. Ska försöka hålla i det så länge jag orkar. Det är ett mycket tidseffektivt sätt att träna som inte tar många minuter extratid åt något håll. När jag skulle ta mig till omklädningsrummet i källaren under DN-skrapan för första gången igår morse, höll jag på att gå vilse. Jag kunde inte alls minnas vägen. Men efter ett tags irrande kände jag igen en korridor full med bråte och skyltar med varning för truckar och då visste jag att jag var rätt.

För övrigt märks det redan i huvudet att jag börjat jobba. Att blogga och fotografera har varit en rolig del av mina dagar under sommaren men nu kommer det inte alls naturligt på samma sätt. Men jag ska fortsätta med det ändå. Allt som ger plats åt andra saker än jobbet ska vårdas. Inte för att ogillar att jobba eller tänka på jobbet, utan för att det är tvärtom. Jag har alldeles för lätt för att enbart tänka på jobb och glömma allt annat som är kul och känns viktigt. På lunchen idag tvingade mig att gå en promenad och spela Pokemon Go av samma skäl. Det är svårt att tänka på jobbet och gå och stressa upp sig för det när man ska snurra pokestop och fånga monster.

Back in the city – with mixed feelings

I am back in Stockholm after five good weeks living #torplife on the countryside. Today was my first day at work and everything was pretty much the same as it was before vacation. I guess that’s fine. To get as much out if the day as possible I went up early, dressed up in shorts and running shoes and took a run to work. And when my office hours were over I ran home again. In the locker room I met a reporter at DN I recognized but I couldn’t remember his name. We have never met before but I am sure I have seen his photograph in the paper many times.

På teater i Hälleforsnäs – så bra är Oliver

scheduleAugust 8, 2019

Det var tur att Helene köpte biljetter till Oliver på Kolhusteatern i Hälleforsnäs så fort vi bestämde att åka dit med ungarna. Nu är alla föreställningar helt slutsålda. Den extraföreställning som sattes in nu på lördag sålde slut på mindre än ett dygn. Efter att ha torsdagens föreställning förstår jag varför. Det var en proffsig uppsättning som gav mycket musikal i snygg men enkel förpackning. Personligen hade jag svårt för vissa lååånga sångnummer men totalt sett var det mycket bra. Och barnen älskade det, trots att det varade i tre (!) timmar. Ensemblen består av några få etablerade skådespelare och ett stort antal unga talanger varav flera lär dyka upp på stora scener om några år. Henrik Backman (hälaren och ligaledaren Fagin) och katrineholmaren Paulina Lind (mästertjuven Dodger) storspelar.

För övrigt är bara lokalen värd ett besök. En gigantisk sten- trähangar mitt i det gamla bruksområdet. Föredömligt orörd interiört med stora betongfundament och synliga bjälkar överallt.

Fyra böcker jag läst den här sommaren

scheduleAugust 8, 2019

I love Dick av Chris Kraus.

Konstnären Chris i USA blir blixtförälskad i den svala teoretikern Dick och gör honom omedelbart till sin musa, trots att objektet inte besvarar uppmärksamheten. Ett omfattande brevskrivande tar vid, fyllt av tunga kärleksförklaringar och intellektuella utflykter i konstvärlden där förbisedda konstkvinnor ges stort utrymme. Sedan kommer schizofrenin in i bilden. Men vem är egentligen sjuk? Märklig och drabbande på skruvat sätt. Absolut läsvärd.

Vegetarianen av Han Kang

Patriarkal kultur i Sydkorea skildrad genom det tvång och begränsning som en ung kvinna upplever i sin vardag. Men en dag gör hon stilla uppror genom att sluta äta kött vilket sätter igång en kedja av händelser som påverkar hela hennes släkt i grunden. Drömskt berättad tragedi. Mycket bra.

Separationen av Katie Katamura

Min favoritgren inom prosan är äktenskapsromaner. Jag älskar berättelse om kämpande makar, dåliga makar, makar som ger upp och hittar tillbaka – alla varianter. Jag kan inte låta bli att uppslukas av böcker som problematiserar och djupdyker i tvåsamheten och äktenskapet. Ännu mer intressant blir det om din man/fru/partner läser samma bok så att ni kan prata om den efteråt.

Allt jag inte minns av Jonas Hassen Khemiri

Jag är efter som läst den här först nu men den var lika bra för det. En vän dör. Men hur och varför och vad var det egentligen som hände tiden före dödsfallet? Och går det att få en enhetlig bild av person och ett händelseförlopp när så många bjuds in för att ge sin version? En pärla till roman. Den största behållningen är Khemiris förmåga att beskriva detaljerna som ger absolut igenkänning och placerar läsaren just där just då.

Så var det att springsimma Katrineholm swimrun 2019 – race report

scheduleAugust 4, 2019

Först slår vi fast att det här är ett lopp som är värt att springa enbart för den Raw cut-tillverkade medaljen efteråt. Den är sjukt stilig varje år och den här varianten var snyggast hittills. Det är det lilla Löddeköpingbaserade företaget Raw cut studio) som specialiserat sig på medaljer och priser av trä och designen är unik för varje lopp. Roligt att gänget bakom Katrineholm swimrun hållit fast vid samarbetet.

Ett annat skäl att springa det här loppet är att det är småskaligt och familjärt och samtidigt öppet för alla. Det är ett jävla trevligt arrangemang helt enkelt. Här ställer både elit, glada motionärer och totala nybörjare upp och alla möts av en mycket peppande publik. En instruktion innan start kan låta så här:

”När ni hoppar i första simningen kommer ni inte att se vart ni ska upp. Men det är bara att ta sikte på det gula huset på andra sidan”.

Eller så här:

”Alldeles i början kommer det ligga fyra stora stenar över vägen. Vi har ställt fyra barn på dem men gula västar. Spring inte in i vare sig barnen eller stenarna”.

Ni fattar. Det är en bra ton i hela upplägget.
Årets prestation för lag Pepparkällan och Rökärr byggde på glädje. Jag hade riktigt roligt ute på banan. Löpningen kändes helt okej och för en gångs skull kände jag mig helt bekväm med simningen. Min teammate, supercoachen Daniel ”Dala” Eriksson (som fick mig att testa swimrun för två år sedan) gjorde en otroligt stark insats med tanke på att han inte sprungit mer än några kilometer i sträck på hela året på grund av en strulande vad. Fast det märktes ju knappt. Hans grundkondition och löpsteg tillhör en annan sort. Simningen tog emot lite för honom den här gången men det var inte mer än rätt att jag fick dra honom lite med tanke på att det alltid annars är tvärtom. Inför sista simningen gick hans simglasögon sönder men det stoppades oss inte! Jag lånade ut mina och knep ihop ögonen lite när det krävdes. Jag var lite rädd att tappa kontaktlinserna men det gick fint. Banan var lite annorlunda i år jämfört med tidigare och jag tyckte den var roligare och vackrare nu än förr, särskilt löpsträckorna. Och vilken support från publiken! Det stod små folksamlingar på de mest otippade ställen längs banan och hejade. Mest hejade alla på Dala. Han har blivit en lokalkändis i och med sitt engagemang i Julita triathlon och för sina gedigna insatser som hälsocoach och träningsinstruktör i trakten. Han är värd alla hyllningar.

Stort tack till alla arrangörer till ännu en fin tävling. Och störst tack till Dala.

Vann gjorde elitduon @team_simployer
Jag och Dala placerade oss på plats 23 (av 71) på tiden 1 timme 32 minuter och 29 sekunder. Vi kom i mål lite drygt 24 minuter efter vinnarna. Det är vi stolta glada för. Här kan du kika på alla resultat.

Imorgon söndag är det dags för den årliga drabbningen i Djulösjön, då jag och den mäktiga Daniel Eriksson teamar upp för Katrineholm swimrun. Det blir tufft och jobbigt. Sist vi tränade var på samma tävling för ett år sedan. Den här gången har vi inte ens försökt ge oss på en generalrepetition. Men start blir det och bara det är något att vara glad för. Ett tag hängde hela grejen löst på grund av en strulande vad men för ett par dagar sedan kom det glädjande beskedet på sms: vi kör. Jag är mycket peppad trots brist på gemensamma förberedelser. Det roliga är att få köra ihop med Daniel. Arrangemanget är genomtrevligt och som den supercoach Daniel är brukar det alltid hända något när vi väl passerat startlinjen. En känsla av att ha extrakrafter. Kom gärna och heja. Startskottet går klockan 14 från Stora Djulö. Alla detaljer här.

Reconsider everything

scheduleAugust 3, 2019

The start of August is reconsideration time. Am I in the right place? Am I working in the right place. Am I really living the life I want to? These questions are coming back to me around this time every year. After a couple of vacation weeks in the countryside I always feel energized, full of creativity and happy. I spend all days with my wife and kids and we are doing fun stuff together and there is also time for doing fun stuff alone. I never feel bored or stressed out. This is the benefits of being off work but when I daydream about leaving our apartement in Stockholm for good and buy a house out here, I tend to ”forget” about the non-working part of it all. If we did move nothing would be like it is right now. Going to and from work would take much longer for example. In Stockholm I ride my bike for 15 minutes, out here I would probably have to drive for at least 30 minutes. And the kids couldn’t walk home for themselves after school. There would be no close neighbours, no street lights and no open late-shops in the area. And it’s not easy to find a job as a journalist out here. I would have to find something else probably.

Still, I keep daydreaming. I’ll do it for another week. Then I’m back in Stockholm at my job, the kids are back in school and everything will feel just fine again. I guess that also is a part of what we in Sweden call ekorrhjulet, the treadmill of life.

This is our summer house (we don’t own it, long lasting lease). The wooden deck is new, I built it myself a couple of weeks ago and it’s a beautiful spot in the evening when the late sun is beaming right in from the fields. But there is a problem. The window in the corner can’t be opened and behind it is the kitchen. So every time we are going to sit outside and eat (almost every day) you have to run around half the house to get all the food and plates out. My plan is therefore to pick out some tools and fix the window so it can be opened. Right now it’s screwed right into the frame. 

I’ll just finish my second cup of black coffee and I’ll get on it.

But I like running and open water swimming. The race is for us good clean fun and a nice way to hang out. And afterwards you get a nice runners high. You run for a bit you get into the water and then run for a bit again and swim again without changing clothes. First of all it’s a close to nature experience. If you haven’t tried swimrun I really recommend you do.

Helix pomatia in the backyard

I found this beautiful couple chilling around in the high grass. 

They are called vinbergssnäcka in swedish and _helix pomatia_ in latin. The english name I don’t know about. They are actually edible, but I have never heard about swedish people eating them.

Micro.blog! What do I have to do to get the images in an certain position in a blog post? @manton

This is how you connect Google analytics to your micro.blog-site

scheduleJuly 30, 2019

@martinfeld asked me how I did it and I figure I could show everyone in a special post. First of all I am very happy I managed to do this, I am no coder or tech specialist but as a journalist I am pretty good at searching for information on the internet. I found most if what I needed here and here. My english isn’t perfect so you have to excuse if my choices of words seem a little awkward sometimes. Allrigh let’s get to it. I have put this down as explanatory as possible.

  1. Set up a new property in Google analytics for your micro.blog..

  2. Copy the tracking ID, looks like UA-XXXXXX-X and paste in notes or something so easily can find it again in a short while.

  3. Log in to micro.blog. Go to your footer (Posts → Design → Edit).

  4. Here comes the most important part. You need to copy one of the two bits of codes listed below and replace the UA-XXXXX-Y with your specific tracking ID (see number 2 above on this list). The first bit (box) of code is for them who has a lot of users/readers with older web browsers. Use the other if your primarily visitors use modern browsers to access your site. (I choosed the second one). So, copy one of the bits of codes in the Google page I point you to here, then replace the tracking ID and paste into your footer on micro.blog and save.

  5. That’s it. Check into your Google analytics account and you will be able to see how many visitors your site has, how much time they spend on your site each time and where they live and so on.

Snake alert!

Häromdagen sa jag till Calle på andra sidan Åsen att det var längesedan jag såg huggorm. Idag såg vi flera. Den första (på bilden) låg och kurade bland klipporna vid Öljarens strand nere vid kyrkan. Den andra var en esping som Helene höll på att cykla över på Munkleden mot Julita gård. I vattnet såg vi också flera snokar, svarta med gula prickar bakom ögonen. De kan verkligen simma, dyka med hela kroppen under vattnet. Jag googlade och fick lära mig av Skansens hemsida att snokar äter fisk och grodor och sork och är en av få ormarter som klarar av paddors giftiga skinn. Huggormar och snokar hänger gärna på samma ställen. De kan till och med ligga och sola tätt omslingrade. Ormgrop!

I am not a gamer. In fact, games haven’t interested me at all since the tape days of the Commodore 64. But that just changed. The last couple of days I’ve been obsessed with the Pokémon Go app. Our three kids rediscovered it, almost by accident, and the updates made since the big Pokémon Go launch in 2016 has turned the kids as well as both me and my wife into fans of the game. It’s physical and social and forces you to interact with other people IRL. Me who love to run find extra motivation in the egg hatching and today me and my ten year old son (anti-bike, anti-run) went out for a long bike trip just to get to a couple if pokestops and gyms. Where staying in our small summer house in the swedish countryside right now and I thing the Pokémon Go is perfect out here. You really have to walk a good bit before you find something interesting in the app. Last night we went out for a walk, me, my wife Helene and our three kids. We have ten year old twins (son and daughter) and a son who is fifteen. They seldon share interests but this time they all had great fun together for good period of time. Fantastic. I doubt it will last for long. I am happy it’s here at all.
