National Celebration (Reminder)

Idag er det igjen 17 Mai, og igjen feirer hele Norge sin nasjonaldag. Og siden det nå er 3 år siden jeg laget en fotoreportasje fra festen i Oslo, finner jeg grunn til å minne om den igjen. Fotoreportasjen inneholder hele 28 bilder, og for dem som vil gjenoppleve festen, så ligger det en direkte link til hele reportasjen her!

Vil du se NRK’s 17. Mai-reportasje fra 2017. Den finner du her!

Today it’s the 17th of May, and again Norway celebrates its ‘National Day’ throughout the country! And since 3 years have passed since I produced a massive photo report on the celebrations that took place in Oslo, perhaps it’s time to reming you that the entire
photo report including 28 pictures, may be seen again if you follow this link!
And if you want to take peek at this years NRK 17th of May celebration?
Here it is!

      Thank you, Eugenia!
      In earlier years we usually included a lot of links to background informations, but sadly
      we experienced over time that veeeery few people bothered to follow our published links!
      As you will have noticed: Today there are practically no such links included in our reports!
      The reason being: Why should we invest time to find such links in Norwegian as well as in English when less than 2% use them?
      The question wer’re contemplating these days is ‘what to do with a thousand followers when only 2-3 dozens respond to our published reports? We’ve been at this for 4,5 years by now, but will we still be here to celebrate our 5 year ‘birthday’?

        It’s probably true that people rarely ‘self curate’ to follow links, but you also know that people love to look at pictures – and you have some beauties, along with an engagingly chatty and personal short ‘postcard’ message.
        Any luck with tying the links directly to pix (+ a little story)? These short ‘hooks’ are often on the order of a short anecdote: “I went skiing this morning [picture of my skis] Snow was a little wet and sticky. Story: “Da jeg var gutt…” Do you know where the word ‘ski’ comes from? [link to article]. One of my favorite places to ski [picture] is [link to article] o.s.v.
        Or maybe just photoshop in more images of [kitties!]…
        Not trying to be too pushy – I just really do believe in what you are doing, on several levels.
        Takk for alt. Og Alt for Norge!

          Looking from the other side, John:
          It’s a bit strange that whether we publish an 80 picture report from way up into the mountains costing us days of work, not to mention hundreds of dollars, or if we publish a single picture of a butterfly outside of our door (time/cost = zero) the respons is just about the same! May be we should only publish ‘single pictures’?
          But that’s not what we really want to do, but there is a limit to everything . . .
