    Hello Brinja,

    Every day I read your blog with much pleasure. I enjoy your little stories and beautiful pictures!
    I was attended to your blog by a famous Dutch columnist called Aaf Brandt Corstius, who wrote a column about you in the Dutch paper ‘nrc.next’ a while ago.
    I became very curious and had to take a look at your blog and now you have a new fan! ;-)
    I’ll send you the link of the article, it’s in Dutch but maybe you can translate it in Danish!
    Here it is, from March 23 last year: http://www.nrcnext.nl/columnisten/2010/03/23/ik-ben-inmiddels-behoorlijk-geinvolveerd-in-haar-leven/
    I hope you like it!

    By the way, I think I know where your Dutch readers come from.. (Anyway, this is how I know about you)

    One of my favourite writers of a daily column in a national newspaper once wrote about you.

    I included a link to the article, you can translate it in Google.

    This is what Aaf wrote, or close to it anyway:

    Do you recall that in 2008 everybody had a weblog? It was ridiculously timeconsuming of course, and that’s why there are so many weblogs running dry, and abrubtly ending in musings on fruit-drinks or a picture of a comic trafic sign from Poland … not to be continued.
    Twitter seems so much more convenient, because all you have to do, is to write cryptic messages as ‘@brinjah yeah, and what about that umbrella!’, and with that you’ll participate in an important global movement.
    However clumsy the remaining weblogs may seem nowadays, I still like to follow a few of them.
    Right now I’m completely addicted to Brinja’s Blog, a woman from Kopenhagen who I don’t know personally. I do not recall how I ended up on het blog, but in the meantime I have become fairly involved in her daily life.
    Brinja is about my age, but that is where comparisons end. Brinja has her own shop, for which she makes clothing and hair ribbons. At home she works on a perfect model of her appartment, furniture and all. And she has a boyfriend called Anders, a baby under way – for whom she knits socks & sweaters – and a bunch of friends with whom she often goes out to eat lovely dishes. (Her most recent post is titled“Smorrebrod)
    So, I’m deadly jealous of Brinja. Her own shop. Working on a miniversion of her own home. And Smorrebrod. That is, in a nutshell, my ideal life.
    It’s not good for me to check out her site, because I’ll see her sitting on the couch with cosy socks, knitting a babycap. Especially the pottering around is bugging me. You see, I think I have the pottering–gen in me, that’s why I’ve been in a knitting-class for years now- but actually, I have not yet completed a single sweater.
    Brinja has. And more. Very pregnant, whith a shop to run, she recently decorated storage boxes with vintage wallpaper. I wish I would do that in my scarce spare time. But I squander it by 1. Googling for an apartment 2. running on a treadmill in the gym – ah well walking, and 3. exhaustingly checking out the weblogs of Danish women.
    In that time Brinja has completed an Alvar Aalto chair for her minihome.
    Still I go and look her up. Every day. That’s where I get my shot of jealousy. We have known it for ages: Internet brings out the worst in people. Fortunately Brinja herself, is blissfully unaware of this.

    I’m a Dutch girl living in Stockholm. For a couple of weeks ago I spend a weekend in Kopenhagen. I noticed that the design was quite like the Dutch one. All the colors, dots, flowers etc were very simular to Dutch taste. And of course all the (decorated) bikes! So that may be why you have so many Dutch followers.

    Hej! It seems an article in some newspaper lead to this interest. I have been in copenhagen and other parts of Denmark. Funny that Denmark from all perspectives is so similar to us (even the bloody weather), I’d say much more than any other country including Belgium, but there are no real historical corrections. But then again The Netherlands seems like a loose part of Scandinavia anyway..
    Even Danish is an easy read (well, with some effort)…Strange.
