MORE ABOUT ME
I’m a sensitive, kind and creative person.
The most important thing in my life is my family and I’m not just saying that, it’s truly true. I make sure to prioritize and spend time with those who are close to me. That’s why I don’t use snapchat anymore and rarely Instagram because I see so many people missing the joy of the moment because they are too focused on documenting it for others instead of just enjoying it IRL. Do you understand what I mean?
BODEN BY NIGHT
When I started this blog it was all about the party-life in the small town of Boden (Hence the name “Boden By Night”). Eventually photography and the blog became a business for me and I started my own company. I know that some of you wish I had never stopped working as an event photographer but nothing lasts forever.
Let’s face it, when it became a job that I was paid to do it didn’t take long until the fun aspect of it disappeared for me. Thinking about it always brings up a lot of fun memories though and I met many nice people and celebrities!
In time I got other interests and moved away from the partying. During the years my blog has developed into a lot more and nowadays I mainly write about alternative lifestyle and my interest in snowmobiling and enthusiast cars. I have kept my company but I do other types of photography and I also work with social media and websites.
Sometimes I wish that I could chose ONE main niche for this blog but I find it really hard to limit myself. I love to work on many different projects at the same time.
WHY AM I DOING THIS IN ENGLISH?
At first I wrote in Swedish but when I started my YouTube channel I wanted to make it in English and shortly after I was writing in English as well. The main reason for the switch is that I wanted to be able to socialize with people that have the same interests in other parts of the world. Most of the blogs, communities, Facebook groups, YouTube channels and Instagram accounts that I myself follow and engage in are in English. I have also noticed that many of you that visits my site or watch my videos does not speak Swedish at all.
The most difficult part with speaking English is knowing that Swedes watch the videos and may have opinions about it. As stupid as it sounds I’ve tried to hide the fact that I have a YouTube channel from my hometown as much as I can. In Sweden we call it the “Jante” law… I know that I should not care but sometimes it’s hard to shake it off.
Please remember that English is my second language and be patient with my grammar and miss spellings.
