I've been doing blogs for a while now. When I was in Canada I figured it was a great way to keep my family in Norway posted. In addition, I found blogs written by exchange students very helpful before I became one myself. I would read for days. It gave me a good insight into the experience and was an excellent guidance.
I made lots of wonderful friends during my year abroad. It shouldn't be difficult to stay in touch in a modern society like this. However, it takes more time and effort to keep everyone updated to all time than expected. This is one of the main reasons why I have chosen to continue writing.
Before following my blog I want to make a few things clear: Writing in public is difficult. There are several different audiences to please, and hopeless to please them all at once. It's a personal blog, but my work is often written from an objective perspective. I want to balance my own experiences with others. I can only speak for myself. Yet, I try to turn my opinions and ideas into a more generalized point of view. I do not intend to offend anyone or give a negative impression of studying abroad (or any topic at all).
I would like to thank everyone who read about my stay in Canada. You are all a big part of why I blog, and why I like and will continue doing it.
