Oslo Blog Gathering, August 11th to 15th, invites all to explore the city and Norway’s history, culture and traditions. It’ll be a compact guided adventure invited by RennyBA’s Terella, to give everyone in Blogsphere a chance to see some of the attractions presented on this blog over the last five years. After the first day’s guided tour: Highlights of Oslo, you’ll learn how to navigate, use the public transportation and chose your favourite attractions such as museums, historical buildings, shopping, boat trips or hiking in the woods.
visitOslo is a key contributor to this Gathering. Sharing their knowledge and experience has been an important input for composing the program. Thanks to them we get the guided tour: Highlights of Oslo and even the Oslo Pass which give free travel on all public transport, free admission to museums and sights. Passengers from Oslo Gardemoen airport will also get a free ticket to the city by the Express train. I recommend a visit to their site and get acquainted with Oslo; what they have to offer and what you would like to do, e.g.: Top 10 suggestions
Blogging Connecting People:
As an active networker I enjoy using Social Media and blogging extensively. Through this I have met a lot of nice people online which I am curious about, and very much would like to meet personally. That is the reason behind this project – no other – I am not sponsored by any tourist group or agency, or any of the local hotels for that matter. So it’s not a commercial venture for me and I do not earn anything on the participation. I only wish to sett opp arrangements so that as many as possible are able to join us.
The Official Program site:
This post is a pre announcement and of course there will be more details about the program as well as accommodations and booking. For more details, in time as they are certified, this site will always be updated: Oslo Blog Gathering 2010.

How fun and next year I’m vice commodore and I’ll be working every weekend all spring/summer long. Then next year I’m commodore and am still required to show up at all our yacht club functions as well as many other functions.
Have a terrific day. Big hug to you and Diane. :)
Looking forward to it :)
It sounds fantastic, I will be following youuu!
Won’t be able to attend but I am looking forward to read all about the gathering :)
Can’t wait! Looking forward to it.
Sounds like it will be a lot of fun.
I hope you’ll visit Norwegian Museum of Science & Technology!
It is really nice post with have a good article related this nice topic.keep i up this nice sharing….
I will be there with bells on….and whatever else is required!! Looking forward to meeting lots of interesting people!
Nice post, Thank you for sharing such a great information.
Sounds like great fun.. can’t wait to hear all about it
For en gangs skyld svar på norsk: Om du ikke er sponset, så burde du jo vært det – slike ting kan bli god Norge/Oslo reklame. Du kan jo ta kontakt med bloggeren ArneA (som du sikkert har vært innom). Han brenner for mye av det samme når det gjelder Oslo.
Really nice post with have a good article related this nice topic.keep i up this nice sharing…
I will try to come, but I may arrive a few days early as I need about two days just to get back to Singapore in one piece after that!
It’s a great idea. Fair dues to you for having the get-up and go to organize it. Don’t know if I’ll be here. I hope I will :)
My dear friend,
it’s of course posted here:
I will invite people from all over the World, even from Norway, to this exotic blogger gathering.
And of course, as a blogger and citizen of Oslo, both me and Anna will help people feel comfortable and to get the most of it during their visit.
You know I have lived here for more than 60 years, haha, so I should have some secrets to show;-))
Posted on my Facebokk as well –
follow up on ABC this weekend
Sounds like a great way to meet people and yes I love this type of thing and can see why you would be so busy. Now I have to figure out how to get vacation time to join…
This is really cool! I admire your energy and your sense of organization.
You are the master networker!
What a fabulous idea – inspiring! Very excited to ‘be there’.
Yes, maybe it’s even is a one in a lifetime experience?
We will also be there and contribute in any way we can of course!!!!!
If nothing else: to make a toast for the blogosphere ;-)
(We’ll do some promoting of this fabulous blog gathering later and at several occasions and places)
this will be a great time to visit oslo! no more snow coz its summer! yepeey! thanks for organizing this Renny! good job!
I am thinking of any suggestions..probably in my next visit here! have a great weekend ahead!
forgot to tell you that I envy your weather..I can’t go sightseeing during the weekend now because the weather is not really good..i heard a lot of accidents on the road due to this early snow. enjoy your weather Renny!
Thank you for the invitation, Renny. I’m so sorry, I think I can’t come, even though I would love to do so!! The widget is now up on my blog. :)
And thank you for your comment.
RennyBA, I think there might be someting unique going on in Oslo August next year.
Have you checked it out?
P & me we enjoy the blog gathering Oslo 2010!
We miss you and we are looking forward to meet you all!
Thank you so much for the invitation. I would love to visit Norway. My best friend has in law family there and I’m always begging to go when they go over to visit. I think this next summer the ones who live in Norway will be coming to the US.
Thanks again for the invitation, and I hope you have a lovely blog/fun time. That sure will give Maribeth some good blog fodder. :o) She is a really good blogger and a great person to get to know.
how much is the fee? :)
I’m still working on it, but the Program Fee (mandatory) will probably be around 50€. In addition (optionally) comes the accommodation.
It’s certainly a good idea to gather bloggers up north and I hope you will have many people coming.
I am afraid I can’t come my travel schedule is already full for next year.
I go to Egypt now beginning November for 2 weeks, so I won’t be in Brussels if you come.
What a lovely idea! With the kids returning to school in August it is unlikely I can slip away for a little detour to Norway, but I’ll keep it in mind!
I want to go it! But Is this Oslo Blog Gathering will repeat in 2011?
I have no plans from 2011 so Carpe Diem on 2010!
This is interesting. I’ll post the logo as well once my blog is back online. Btw, I love the look of the logo. Awesome!
We really hope to see both you and Odd there and thanks for your willingness to promote it on your blog too!
Hey Renny! Thanks so much for pulling this together… I know a least 4 of us who are ready & willing to help out wherever we can. Just say the word!
Thanks for organising this global Bloggers Meet in Oslo.
I want so much to visit you and Diane in Norway and to see the lovely places you have blogged.. I’ll have to do some planning. :)
It would be great to meet TorAa and Capt lifecruiser!!
Hope I can make most of my trip visiting other bloggers in Europe. Too bad Gattina will be away in Egypt.
The timing of this gathering may conflict with Farm Day in Michigan if Astrid and I plan to fly back from the Netherlands. But regardless of when, Renny, I do know I’ll see you and Diane one day…even if it’s just the 4 of us…or the 6 of us, including Tor and Anna. That will be the day!
As we have been discussing the subject as lot as of lately, I felt this was a great follow-up
I have been visiting various blogs for my thesis writing research. I have found your blog to be quite useful.
Keep updating your blog with valuable information… Regards mike
Can I just say what a relief it truly is to discover somebody who actually knows what they’re talking about. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light, and make it clear and as simple as possible. You definitely have “the gift”. :)
