What is the LauraJul blog
LauraJul is an inspiration blog. Here you can find your daily inspiration within design, art, photography, quotes, humor, advertising, architecture, animation and much more.

LauraJul was founded in May 2010 by blogger and owner Laura Jul, who is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Who is LauraJul
Laura lives in Vesterbro, Copenhagen – and has been working as a concept developer, copywriter, creative strategist, and creative director in the Danish advertising industry since 1999. She specializes in digital marketing, social media and one-to-one communication. Currently she works as the Creative Director in a Copenhagen-based digital agency.

Language
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 Friday. LauraJul made up this concept for twitter, when #FollowFriday started to wear out. It gave #FF 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, but never porn.

Unless indicated otherwise, the pictures on this blog do not belong to me and they do not have any commercial purpose. Pictures I have taken myself belong to me. If you borrow pictures from my blog, please link back.

    Regarding the name “FraekFredag,” here is an idea for a slightly different English translation: “Freaky Friday.” It’s not an exact translation, nor intended to be so, but the spelling is very close to the Danish word “fraek” and, in the sexual sense, has approximately the same meaning. Cheers!

      Fraek is almost totally unrelated to Freak in English.

      The meaning of Fraek in Danish depends on context, and ranges from “cheeky” or “naughty” (with sexual overtones) to just “naughty” (like a toddler can be, totally not sexual).

      Freak in English has a very definite meaning. As it drifts into slang usage, it can mean an enthusiastic person, weird/eccentric, and with both positive and negative connotations.

      Sorry to piss on your bonfire – I just saw that and thought “that’s just not right!”. Haha.

      • MaryMomentum says:

        It’s true that the word “Freak” has many meanings in English speech… but it does relate to the slightly sexual or naughty meaning that’s referred to in the definition of “FraekFredag” above.

        You’ve never heard anyone referred to as being “freaky deaky” when they are being sexual in a non-mainstream way?

        Of course, most of our words have so many meanings that the context is as important as the specific terminology.
