5th Anniversary

Idag er det en slags jubileumsdag her hosSeeNorway‘, og årsaken er som dere ser at det idag er 5 år siden denne bloggen ble etablert. Gjennom tiden som har gått, har vi møtt en rekke hyggelige og engasjerte mennesker over hele verden. Hvordan det har gått med bloggen i disse 5 årene? Jo takk, vi kan vel si oss fornøyd?
Gjennom disse årene har vi publisert 1345 innlegg ( i snitt 5,2 pr uke) med tilsammen
6754 bilder – de fleste i full screen – hvilket skulle bli 26 bilder/uke ( 3,7 bilder/dag i 5 år)
Respons har resultert i totalt 219 011 visninger fordelt på 118 810 besøkende som tilsammen har lagt igjen 32 867 ‘Likes’ (ca. 1 ‘like’ pr 4 besøkende), så kanskje må vi skjerpe oss ytterligere?

Gjennom de siste 6 måneder har vi også oppgradert vår base av ‘følgere’ som alle har blitt kontrollert for aktivitet og agenda. Her har vi kunnet redusere antall ‘følgere’ fra 1003 til ca 150 – og uten at vårt trafikkvolum har endret seg nevnverdig. Hvilket beviser at de vi fjernet egentlig ikke hadde hva man forventer av en ‘følger’.

Tusen takk til alle de som lojalt har fulgt oss gjennom disse årene! Foreløpig vil vi forsøke å holde det gående enda ett år – forutsatt at helsen holder. Det hadde jo vært spennende om vi kunne sette sluttstrek på 300 000 oppslag og 7500 bilder, men – det er prognosen.
Og håpet!

Today is a kind of anniversary here at ‘SeeNorway’,  the reason being – as you may see – today it’s 5 years ago that this blog was established. During this time, we have met a number of very nice and committed people all over the world. How has the blog been doing in these 5 years? Well, thank you, we may say that we are happy with our progress.

Throughout these years we have published 1345 posts (average 5.2 posts per week) together with 6754 pictures – mostly in full screen – which would come to 26 images / week (3.7 images/day for 5 years) Feedback has resulted in a total of 219,011 views from a total number of 118,810 visitors who have left a total of 32 867 ‘Likes’ (about 1′ for every 4th visitor), so maybe we need to do even better in the future?

Over the last 6 months, we have also upgraded our base of ‘followers’, all of which have been verified for activity and agenda. Here we have been able to reduce the number of ‘followers’ from 1003 to about 150 – and without our traffic volume having changed significantly. Which proves that those we have removed did not really have what we expect from a ‘follower’.

A warm thanks to all those that have loyally been following us through the years. So far
we’ll try to keep it up at least for another year – provided that we’ll retain our health on present level. It would be exiting to leave this project with 300 000 views and 7500 pictures published. At least that’s the prognosis – and our hope!

    Gratis på femårsdagen !
    It is intriguing how removing not suitable followers actually left you with the same response value from the more serious followers. May you continue happily with even more certainty for the future.

    Only five months…..😊

      Well, Miriam, I’m convinced that most bloggers could do the same becausae there are a lof of ‘would-bee-bloggers’ that find blogging far tougher than anticipated and just leave their blogs doing nothing about it.
      At least 50% was old blogs like that. The fault was as much mine because I hade done no maintenance-work for 5 years. Now I know what’s happening around me, but –
      (A word of warning) You got to be very careful to remove the right profiles and not the live ones! Otherwise you’re ‘dead’! 😉

    Sharing a 5th Anniversary celebration. 5 years of stunning photos and narrative by Svein.

  6. -Eugenia says:

    Congratulations, Svein. I feel privileged to be one of your followers. Your photography, as well as your commentary, is delightful. My take away from your blog is not only the enjoyment of stunning photos but the educational aspect, as well. It’s amazing what you have posted in five years. Bravo!

    • Seenorway says:

      Aw, thank you, Eugenia!” I wouldn’t know about the educational bit 🙂 but I like to share photos from our nature! And the bonus will be that people appreciate what I do!
      From here on it’s one year at a time . . . (As long as I feel I might cope!)

  7. Warm congratulations Svein.. And it has been my pleasure in following you and being rewarded by so many delightful scenes from your part of the world.. Wishing you continued success in your blog posts.. And sending much love from the UK.

  8. Congrats with your anniversary!

    Ja slik Verden er blitt er det vel heller å ta en måned av gangen! Håper selv å kunne komme i gang med prod av bilder igjen der kanskje også SN kan publisere noen?

    Of course, Christine, and one of the side effects of these efforts is that we are getting to know our followers in a much better way. Also because we check the URL’s of all new ‘followers’ in order to establish whether they are into nature photography and/or travels contrary to businesses trying to market their own interests. You’re very much appreciated! 🙂

    Congratulations, Svein. Impressive stats. Happy that I’m one of 150 dedicated followers. You know I enjoy your blog photographs and narratives. Christine
