Ten years of Visual Norway – Now What?

Tåke Askøybroen-7245

“Visual Norway” is ten years old today. It started its life on Blogger, but in 2014 I moved it  to WordPress, for various reasons. I started it partly as a site for various pictures that I wanted to display and partly as kind of self-therapy after serious illness.

Ten years later I’m still here, and so is the Blog. I haven’t counted the number of photos or the number of posts, but I hope that the photos have at least improved somewhat in quality. However, what I do see is that I haven’t given the blog the attention it deserves the last few years. It looks old-fashioned (though that doesn’t bother me too much), and I don’t post or follow-up as much as I ought to.

So what to do now – maybe take a break?

Have a nice week-end!

PS The comments section is ABOVE the photos 🙂

  1. Gratulerer med 10-årsjubileet! Jeg forsår deg, Rune, har det på samme måte selv. Det går i rykk og napp (akkurat nå litt mer aktiv etter å vært på en tur med mange inntrykk og ikke minst bilder med tilbake). Håper du ikke gir deg helt, et bilde i ny og ne er det mange av oss som setter pris på!

    God helg!

  2. Congratulations, Rune! Wow, ten years–that is older than any blog I know. Good on ya.
    Your blog is always a beautiful and friendly place to come to. We hope you won’t stop. I think we are all slowing down in our posting, but that’s OK. I’ll be happy to see your next photo, no matter when.
    All the best to you and to dear Norway.

  3. Dear Rune, as someone who stops by here now and then (I keep you on by blogroll, I guess that’s a bit old fashioned too these days) I’d just like to say how much I have enjoyed your amazing photos and thank you for keeping the blog going for ten years and sharing the wealth of beauty you have found with the rest of us. Whatever you decide, may you continue to enjoy your life, and don’t ever give up on the camera!

  7. I understand exactly what you are saying. I’ve greatly reduced the frequency that I post also.
    I hope you continue to keep the blog open, even if it isn’t as often as before, It’s a great blog to visit and I love your photos!

  8. Gratulerer så mye med 10 års jubileum, Rune! Bra jobbet,- og det er vel ingen grunn til å gi seg nå, er det?!
    Selv har jeg hatt en lang (for meg å være) pause, men nå måtte jeg ta meg selv i nakken.
    Jeg fotograferer jo masse, men i det siste har bildene bare blitt liggende på harddisken…
    Og så må jeg jo ikke glemme å nevne dette flotte motivet ditt… dette likte jeg svært godt,- enkelt i uttrykket med hint av mystikk 🙂

  10. A hiatus may be necessary to refresh. Your visitors can always recapture the special wonderfulness you place in each of your past photos. Like the one here…the mist shrouding the landscape.

  12. Gratulerer med de 10 årene – det er ikke mindre enn fantastisk. Og et flott bilde å feire jubileet med. Istedenfor å ta en pause, er vel kanskje tiden inne for å gi full pinne? Det vet jeg at mange av dine følgere ville synes om – inkludert meg selv. 🙂
