Her blog, Claras Linneskåp, was one of the first that I started reading when I entered Blogland back in February 2007. I was instantly charmed by the way she wrote and in constant admiration for her beautiful pictures and she always took her time to write long and very personal comments to my posts. I became addicted to her blog and took a quick sneak-peak everyday. Still, reading it makes me happy and it feels like receiving a warm hug from outer cyberspace! Clara became my first blogfriend! Through her I understood that this blog writing business isn’t just about surfing around, reading and commenting but that you can also meet some truly nice people out there….
Since then I have made a lot of other blogfriends too but Clara is special because she came first! Clara is special in many other ways too – a very talented photographer, excellent writer and a person that cares deeply for nature and environment. Now she has taken her environmental interest one step further. Some of her photos are being made into postcards and part of the profit is going to Naturskyddsföreningen which is a Swedish association for protecting the environment. So many people would have been satisfied by just selling their postcards but she goes and does it for a good cause too…
Way to go Clara!
Back in September I met Clara in IRL. She was having a photo exhibition in Blekinge and I went to see it. It takes about two and a half hours by car but that’s no distance when you have a chanse to meet a blogfriend. Meeting her was like meeting someone you have known forever. Of course I had to take a photo of her. A photo of a photographer…..
Here is a great big hug for you my friend
