While Norway was celebrating its Constitution Day on the 17th of May, this website was celebrating its third anniversary. It was no coincidence that we chose the Norwegians’ most festive day of the year to launch Views and News from Norway – www.newsinenglish.no.

Since the 17th of May in 2009, we’ve been trying to keep up with the Norwegians. In all honesty, it’s quite a challenge. There’s been an enormous amount of news coming out of Norway, especially since the terrorist attacks of last year.

We keep at it, though, still in the belief that there’s a need for English versions of what’s grabbing headlines and topping broadcasts in Norway, with background, photos, some perspective and occasional commentary as well. We’re proud that we now have readers all over the world and that thousands of people both in and outside of Norway are clicking in every day.

We hope you’ll keep clicking in and, better yet, support our efforts by clicking the donate button. We need more income to write more stories, and advertising is elusive. We may need to convert the site to a paid subscription service and stop giving away our news in English for free, but maybe not, if support picks up.

Our main goal is to be around for our fourth anniversary, and many anniversaries after that. In the meantime, gratulerer med dagen, and we hope your own 17th of May was a merry one.
