Writing mostly about Norway; our Culture, Traditions and Habits, it’s an honour to be listed on The Daily Reviewer’s Top 100 Blog category Norway. Here is the official Award:

It was Angelina Mizaki, Selection Committee President at The Daily Reviewer who announced this in a comment on my blog:
Congratulations! Your readers have submitted and voted for your blog at The Daily Reviewer. We compiled an exclusive list of the Top 100 Norway Blogs, and we are glad to let you know that your blog was included!”

Some might call a post about this bragging. To me an Award like this is an inspiration and encouragement to keep on sharing about my daily life in Norway and the Nordic countries as well as my travels around the world.

Blogging Connecting People:
My regular readers have read this saying of mine many times – and further; Brake down cultural, religious and other barriers. Sharing and visiting others in the Blogsphere from all around the world, builds friendships and develops knowledge about others people and their way of living.

Meeting other bloggers:
Further more; Blogging and other Social Media, makes people want to meet their friends made in Blogsphere in person. This summer my wife and I had the privilege of visiting our blog friend Claudie in Provence, France. Next week, I’m going to meet a gentleman from Singapore who travels a lot and became interested in Norway while finding my blog post ‘Fish market in Oslo” through a Google search. This inspires me by showing that blogging is a new channel for tourism. This is part of the reason I’m working on creating a Blog Gathering in Oslo in August next year. So that many of you will have an opportunity to come and experience some of the places you’ve seen in my posts!

    II wish you LUCK :)

  6. WooHoo WTG Renny!! Congratulations my friend!! I for one think you are most deserving. If it were up to me you would not only be in the top 100 you would be #1!!

    As I’ve told you before you are just about my only connection to learn about the Northern European countries. This is very dear to me as I am a descendant of the region.

    Before leaving I will say you were spot on in your interpretations of my water colors. They were painted while we lived in my beloved Maine, which, if I am not mistaken is much like Norway in climate and terrain!!

    I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!

  7. Congratulations! Well deserved – this is not your “everyday” blog-award. Keep it up!
