There are three things certain in life. Death, tax and change.
One day I will die.
Each year I must pay tax to one Government or another.
And yep, you guessed it, Life in Norway is changing.
I began writing the Diary of David in April 2011, as a personal blog intended to keep my friends and family updated with my move from the UK to Norway. Very quickly I found myself enjoying my writing, leaving out the personal stuff and making more general observations about Norwegian life. This attracted a wider audience and I changed the blog title to “Life in Norway” to better reflect that. Now I’m taking things a step further, as I slowly transform the site from blog into a resource for Norway’s international community.
Fear not my dear fans! I won’t be going anywhere and will still write to you every week. But! I would like some different voices to join in the conversation. I’ve featured some guest posts from Chris and Gerry, but now I’m after some more regular contributors. Columnists, if you like! There’s no major commitment required, a post every week or two would be spot on.
Ideally it would be great to hear from those with a different take on Norwegian life, such as:
- An expat who’s lived here for years
- Someone who’s trying to move here
- A business owner or self-employed expat
- A student of the Norwegian language
- A parent with experience of the education and health support systems
- An expat living in another Norwegian city (my writing is very Oslo dominated!)
- A Norwegian returning home after many years abroad
If you have an idea and would like to become a regular contributor, please do get in touch. I’m also interested if you just want to pen a one-off article, perhaps you already have a blog of your own or you have a specific interest or point you wish to share? Again, please get in touch 🙂
I hope to be welcoming some of you to the Life in Norway community real soon!
