I started this blog in 2008. Later on I reached out to the book blog- and sf-community asking if anyone would like to start a SF-book circle with me.
Best. Move. Ever.
I ended up meeting my best friend Frida, who's also my co-blogger 'Farraw'. We formed a book circle with some other guys, and someone mentioned this big conference happening in Stockholm in juni 2011; Eurocon. So, I went, checked it out, absolutely loved it and was completely bitten by the fandom bug.
The next year I went to Kontrast, Swecon 2012, and after that me and a friend started Malmöfandom, which now is a fairly big group with regular pub meetings, writer circles, book circles and the occasional sf-convention. I'm still shocked to have been able to be apart of creating this Malmö-group. I just love how easy it is to make people come together nowadays.
When I'm not blogging, going to sf-conventions, reading, watching tv-series or playing board games, I'm working full time as a personal administrator.
