I have a Norwegian low FODMAP-blog, so why start an English one?
When I started my Norwegian low FODMAP-blog in 2014 I had no ideas of how populare the blog would be, that I would write three low FODMAP-books in three years, that I would be a public speaker about both the diet and how to live and cope with chronic illnesses, that I would be a speaker at hospitals, a writer in Norwegian health-journals etc.. etc…. I started the blog mostly to keep my recipes in one place and maybe to help other people in the same situation.
The last year I have gotten more and more English-speaking followers at Instagram and I have also realized that I have lots of international readers at the Norwegian blog. Because of this, and because I have many English-speaking friends, from all over the world (after living one year in Liverpool and one year in China), it was now on time to start this English low FODMAP-blog.
I’m not good with technical things and when I decided to start this blog, I also decided to get some help with the design. I owe Kolbrun Retorikk and Rootmedia a BIG thank you for the design and for doing the technical “things” (you see, I’m not into this… 🙂 ).
And at last…. Please be aware that English is not my first language. Many people have adviced me to pay somebody to do the translation, but for me, bloging is all about “right now”, and I’m afraid I will loose some of the spontanity (?) and personality if I get a translator. THIS is some of the reasons why the blog is very empty right now! Please hang on and I can assure you that there WILL be lots of low FODMAP-recipes, personal notes, advices, travel-tips etc… If you follow me on the English Facebook-page, you will get all the updates directly in your Facebook-feed!
