"The main advantage of my popularity - is that through it I can meet new people and participate in fun activities," - says its subscribers blogger.
For the computer - a hundred years
Dagny was born back in 1912 in the Swedish town of Kristianstad. At a very young age he got a job in a factory as a seamstress. Sewing is not particularly fond of, but I had to feed my family: my father died, my mother fell into a severe depression, and on the hands were brothers and sisters. A Dagny was the eldest ...
She graduated from textile institute. She married, but was unsuccessful. She ran away from her husband. Married again - this time for love. I worked and raised children. In general, the usual "average" life.
Like many older people, to join the world of high technology Dagny all did not succeed. And she is very jealous of her younger sister, who in his old age to play at home in a simple computer game. Dagny incredibly wanted too try to comprehend this science, but she did not dare to - afraid that this is too old. Still, curiosity got up. In addition, the sister has got a modern computer, and the old gave her.
In 99 years, Mrs. Karlsson finally went to computer courses. New knowledge led her delight, and a year later started the Dagny in Swedish portal your own blog by registering under the ironic nickname Bojan (Bojan). "To be honest, I never liked the name, but Bojan - like" - she explained.
Blog grandmother created a furore. She was invited to TV shows and comments under her posts are left not only the Swedes, but the Finns, Germans, and even the Americans.
The secret of popularity
Her publications - everything, and that is what they are interesting and touching. Dagny today can tell how had a great evening with an old friend, gobbling up their favorite boiled crawfish and drinking sips of whiskey. Tomorrow - recognized that suddenly looked at the nails on your feet and I knew it was time to call the master pedicure. And the next day she will share more than a secret, if not writing all over the world, and good friends. For example, that it is still quite good eyesight, but lately it has become worse to hear her loyal assistants serve as hearing aids.
And she loves to publish photos of flowers, trees, because the world is so beautiful. For example, now is the time to share pictures of trees in autumn, so the page is decorated with golden trees, red leaves ...
Very often, it positions begin with some household items, and end with a philosophical or raise the topic of the day, clear to the reader at any point on the globe. For example, noting that in recent years on the streets is becoming less small birds, it gradually turns to thoughts about life: "In our time, there are wealthy retirees who are like migratory birds. They buy or rent a house on the Spanish coast and are moving there, if they begin to freeze at home. Such a development would have been impossible to imagine when I was little. My mother worked as a maid and she was not even a weekend on Sunday "...
However, this is so - lyrical digressions. Usually, long-liver posts yet light and positive, and she was in the photos looks cheerful, active and fashion.
Karlsson often takes part in public actions, that, as you know, like to support all popular bloggers. For example, three years ago, she joined the movement of "pink ribbon" and all week to buy goods pink in support of people with breast cancer.
The ideal people - boring
Sometimes in their posts dolgozhitelnitsa makes mistakes and, as in any popular blogger, at her grandmother immediately snapped up the crowd of commentators, who wish to improve it. On such "critics" it responds philosophically. "Today, I want to thank all those who are so observant, keeps order on my blog and notice if I push" incorrect "statement", - says the grandmother in one of your posts and then parries. - Any journalist or writer has the proofreader, and I - myself corrector. Next Dagny proud to say that but it is "live" and is not going to get one hundred percent perfect, preferring to be carefree cheerful optimist. But "human error", according to Ms Bojan should not embarrass anyone.
"The man who does everything perfectly, eventually just boring - she says. - These people can rarely boast a sense of humor and the nature of crackers. " To encourage all the "non-ideal" people Karlsson tells subscribers about his childhood. Like, her sister has always been a beautiful, tall, smart and talented, but she Dagny - plump, short-legged and not beautiful. And in terms of the behavior of my mother always put her in the example of the perfect sister. "So, my sister lived only 84 years old, and I still live and survived his three brothers and sisters. So there is nothing wrong to pass "live", - concludes Ms Carlsson. And do not argue!
"They say that the best in people - it is a dog, but I never managed to become so good to be like a dog" - a self-critical remarks Dagny in one of their posts.
A few days ago the blogger told readers that have long been fond of drinking coffee, and is a ritual for her. She still keeps an old house set and uses it only on special occasions. But coffee drinkers necessarily with a cake. Dagny recognized subscribers, that in his youth was chubby and plump, not to say "fat", but never deny yourself the pleasure to eat a delicious dessert. "In old age, many people have become very thin, and I do not want to be slimmer than they are now. So, perhaps, eat-ka I a piece of cake, "- said Karlsson.
Creative activities Dagny envy of any young woman. She travels, visiting theaters and cafes.
Two years ago, a pensioner, even appeared in a cameo in the movie, and this year she published a book of its own. And, of course, it paid tax on royalties. "It is unlikely that all of Sweden there is someone else besides me who declare their income in the 106-year old" - laughing grandma blogger.
