Ten nations and over 60 stories already – but much more to come
The ONE Baltic Sea Region bloggers have shared stories from their daily lives since March 2013. Eleven bloggers have been posting about specialties and quirks from their respective nations. Their blogs are posted on the One BSR website and also on newsWave, the Baltic Sea Region news website edited by the Baltic Development Forum. The bloggers provide readers with a window into what life is like on the shore of the Baltic Sea. They have been giving tips such as where to have coffee in the hip neighborhood Nørrebro in Copenhagen (Denmark), or what it takes to sail the Baltic Sea from Kiel (Germany) to Ystad (Sweden). To enlarge the bloggers’ community, the ONE Baltic Sea Region (ONE BSR) – project is now launching a call for new bloggers.
This time One BSR is especially looking for photo- and video-bloggers who want to post about their daily lives and share their views on a regular basis in the ONE BSR blog at the BSR news platform newsWave, but all applicants are welcome.
Blogging on the ONE BSR-blog will enable you to reach out to a large local and international audience, and become part of an intercultural network of bloggers. As one of the current bloggers, Tobias Koch says:
“The idea that the manifold Baltic Sea Region rooms a great deal of attraction to all kinds of people from the different shores and beyond [is] a wonderful opportunity to cross borders and get beyond nations as such, with the ambition of learning from and about each other.”
Our Copenhagen blogger Mia Scap writes:
“The reason I am writing my blog is because I want to share my experiences with others in order to inspire them to do the same or even better. I believe I could give an interesting view on Copenhagen and its urban life through my “expat eyes” with plenty of cultural background.”
Finally, blogger Esin Aamutuuli writes about her passion for her blog Helsinki for Urban Travelers:
“I was sitting at home bored and frustrated; I wanted to invent something new, but I didn’t know what. I started to write about Finnish culture, just to introduce it to people who are interested about Finland. I wanted them to experience Helsinki as I see.”
Two weeks ago, five of the ONE BSR bloggers went on a 5-day trip around the Baltic Sea to explore Warsaw, Helsinki and Tallinn. You can read about their experiences here.
