When I started Swedish Love Affair I guess I didn’t realize what I was getting myself into. I just wanted to have a personal space on the internet for my private thoughts and creativity. I couldn’t have known how great it would turn out, and how much joy it would bring me! I’m sorry for being corny, but sometimes you just have to. Because it’s true.
Swedish Love Affair is young, but I’ve already met a lot of beautiful and like-minded bloggers and readers here. I get daily e-mails with words of appreciation and encouragement from my readers. Some of you attach photographs of your pets, some show off your freshly painted nails. Some share their love stories and some ask for advice. One girl wrote last week that her boyfriend had proposed to her, and she said yes. I’ve never met you, Julia, but I’m honestly happy for you!..
I got two regular paper letters from friendly strangers. I answer every letter, every line you drop me on the e-mail. Many readers silently visit me every day. That counts too.
People have warned me for being too sincere and open on the blog. They said that’s how you get hurt. But I feel that it’s been worth every word. Because you’re being sincere and warm right back at me.
It’s the middle of the night here, but I can’t sleep and I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all this. You make my day, every day.
