Since we’ve been getting a lot of new Swedish users, by teaming up with Bredbandsbolaget, it’s good time to do a “what to flattr?” post about Swedish stuff. We’re writing it in English so the Swedes are not the only ones to find new great things to flattr. Enjoy!
Most Swedes probably already know of comedian Magnus Betnér, but they might not know that he’s got a podcast together with Helena Sandklef and Fredrik Krohnman, and that they’ve got Flattr on it. He’s also got some interesting thoughts flattrable on his blog. [Flattr here]
Unni Drougge released her Audibook, “Boven i mitt drama kallas kärlek“, for free on the Pirate bay in April of 2009, with only a PayPal button for donations (unfortunately Flattr wasn’t on the market yet). She wrote a follow up “We are all the winners” on her blog about it. You can still download the book, and other books by her on Pirate Bay. [Flattr here]
Anna Troberg is an author, previous publisher and now politician. She was quick to bite on the bait of using Flattr for her blog, where she also publishes her new and old creative writing. She’s also known under the pseudonym Rosetta Sten through which she wrote and published her novel “Chefer från helvetet” (Bosses from hell). Her writing projects can be found on her blog under the name Spineless Fiction. [Flattr here]

A click for the forest – Ett klick för skogen, really came true with the implementation of Flattr. Clicking the flattr-button really is a click for the forest, by support the organization.
