Thanks for visiting

rein_harjoen_jcw

A strange thing happened, I got a lot of followers just by blogging from my daily life. As a photographer and otherwise. This is great fun of course, and also unexpected. This time last year there were probably a handful, now there are 1000. I know not every one is visiting regularly, but a lot of you once in a while and that is great. I remember in the beginning I was thinking: nobody visiting my great posts? Not seriously, but still. Nobody, or almost nobody. Now I communicate with some many exciting, interesting and inspiring bloggers. This is my window to the world. And I hope you have some pleasures too, peeping back. There is only one problem, lack of time. The picture is from visiting the reindeer herders last week, and I have just started uploading some of the pictures to a new reindeer photo gallery.

  1. I know what you mean. The blogging and the comments and answers take a lot of time but it’s worth it when you build up such a community of friends from all over the world. I know I feel that way about my blog and I’m happy when people visit it. I enjoy visiting your blog, Bente, so keep those great photos coming.

  2. May be I’ve seen thousands of photos of famous landscape.
    But many of your photos were taken at quite normal but typical of your country.
    And me to find how great those landscapes are, — all thanks to your photos.
    I’m very lucky and grateful to find your photo-blog.
    Thank you very much for you to have quite hectic life to take photos and make
    them available to net-sphere. 🙂

  4. Everyone loves a good photo, Bente.
    All the more enjoyable when its from a part of the world that most of us will never get to.

    I love your reindeer images. Well, I love all your images for that matter.

  5. Yes, I understand this lack of time, and it becomes ever harder to keep up with my favorite blog-friends. Even when I am not here, I think of you, and I find myself telling stories about Norway that I have learned from you or bragging to my brother about how lovely your berry desserts looked and how the berry bushes cover the whole hillside in your photos. I have told you before that you have made me feel connected to Norway and my heritage there, but that has really meant something to me that stays with me. Thanks for your wonderful blog, and I’m so glad you are enjoying the many windows on the world in the blogosphere as much as I do too. See you again soon!

    1. That is interesting. Blogging is great when we see and learn something new, and also when we experience something similar or wellknown that might be far away. Roots yea, there are as many with norewgian roots in the US as their are norwegians in Norway I have heard.

    1. You are right, absolutely something to see, even when my fingertips freeze. It is a bit far away though. Thanks for your comments. I can’t comment on yours, it is among the WP-designs my blog won’t let my write on.

  6. It fun and I am just surprised it really is. Both as a blogger and a reader it creates a world away from the headline drama of the news. I can also say that I have learned a great deal a great deal about people.places and events….many I guess would never get the public viewing they deserve. Thank you for your contribution I do enjoy and appreciate the time you take to share.

  7. Isn’t it wonderful how interesting our daily lives can be to each other? Lack of time is a chronic problem for almost everyone, but I have found a lot of pleasure in reading your posts and your photos often take my breath away. Don’t ever stop, Bente!!!

    Agree with you, so many wonderful here – including yours too… 🙂
    And yeah the time or the lack of time can be a problem sometimes
    when we want looking out or look into all these wonderful windows of the world around us… 🙂

  10. Thanks Bente, you really are a window onto another world and I have never regretted following your blog. You have now inspired me to get out my old slides from my long ago trips to Norway and look at them again. I never got to the north though unfortunately.

  11. Congratulations Bente! I enjoy your photos – particularly the reindeer – very much, even if I don’t visit as often 🙂 Here’s to the next 1000!

  12. El éxito está, creo, en lo exótico y en lo bueno de tus trabajos; Bente, y está todo muy bien, incluso para atender como puedas a tus fans, que tu blog tiene adeptos…
    Las imágenes generales -paisaje y paisanaje o gentes- son de mucho agrado, pero las particulares en planos cortos de los pastores indígenas y de los animales son maravillosas. ¡Maravillosas! Ya tienes suerte con esas escapadas geniales…
    Un gran saludo. Buen día,

  13. Yes, indeed. It’s wonderful to have so many followers, but one ends up spending too much time at the computer trying to respond to them all. I’ve loved your blog since I stumbled in here the first time. It’s been a great peek into another world. Just keep showing your great pictures and respond only when you feel like it.

  14. It is amazing how many followers you have, but also not because I think we all just love your pictures of your daily life and your country. So thank you for sharing! In this case, beautiful picture of the reindeers.
