Charismatic

vitsippaEurovision Contest Semi-finals: Yesterday there were three countries that had more charismatic contestant, than the rest: Sweden, Norway and Belarus, but unfortunately only two made it to the final. Sweden is in the final. What is it that makes some people charismatic? They have a message that is suitable in that time; believe in what they are doing and that things can change. Charismatic persons are friendly and positive. They have the power to catch the audience and have  eye contact with them. To be charismatic is something that many people want to be, but few are chosen.

The summer is here!

tulpanThis is a sunny day with happy people. Eat my first fresh strawberries today and saw my first mosquito yesterday. People are eating ice cream and the grass is green.

They showed the princess Estelle on television today. She will grow up to be a vice queen. I wish Estelle and her parents all the best. Estelle  is a beautiful name. I hope she will have a happy life.

Loreen will win in Baku

Loreen won the national selection for the Eurovison Song Contest. Sweden has won the Eurovision Contest four times: ABBA, Waterloo, 1974; Herreys, ”Diggi-loo diggi-ley”; Carola Häggkvist, “Fångad av en stormvind”/Captured by a Lovestorm” 1991 and Charlotte Nilsson, “Tusen och en natt”/”Take Me To Your Heaven”, 1999. I think that Sweden have a good chance to win the festival this year. It will be nice too see the victory on television.

This year the final will be in Baku. The semi-finals: 22 & 24 May and the Grand-Final: 26 May.  I am keeping my fingers crossed for Loreen in the final.

How to get your blog successful

rainbowBlog Advice:

The latest issue of the Swedish magazine:  “Skriva/”Write” they gave some tips about how you should get your blog to be successful. It was good advice.

Here are my five advices:
1. Follow your heart:
Write about things that interest you or you have knowledge of. Do not choose a subject, because you think it is going to hit the market. It is more interesting to read a text if people are engaged in what they write.

2. Challenge you self: Always try to find a better angle, a better picture or a new idea.

3. Inspiration: My favourite trick is to use the power of creativity.

4. Passion/Compassion: Try to make the world a little better.

5. Motivate: Imagine that everything is possible, if you believe in it.

A rainbow suddenly turned up for five minutes, when I took this photo in “Hofors” today.

A walk in the woods

woodTrees make a better world:
I was out for a walk in the woods on Sunday. I needed some fresh air. The trees have begun to get some leaves. The sunset almost gave some twilight feeling, beautiful but mystical. Trees produce oxygen and people needs oxygen to  survive. Plant a tree if you want the world to get healthier.
