Most of the posts are created in English. Yet some of the more personal thoughts or sharings are in Danish.
What is #FraekFredag
FraekFredag (Fræk Fredag) is Danish for Naughty/Dirty/Frisky Friday. LauraJul made up the #FraekFredag concept for Twitter in 2009, when #FollowFriday started to wear out. It gave #FF on Twitter a new meaning and it made Fridays more fun. If #FraekFredag is added to a tweet, or if a post is tagged with FraekFredag, it means that the tweet or post has a sexual touch to it. It might even be NSFW. When the laurajul.dk blog was launched in May 2010 the FraekFredag concept was included. This meant, that (close to) every Friday 15 new FraekFredag’s post were published – turning Friday in to one of the most popular days on the blog. The content of FraekFredag was enjoyed by all genders, of all ages, and all over the world. FraekFredag is now on a break. Maybe for good. Who knows. Read the thoughts behind this decision – made by blog owner Laura Jul.
