That was the week that was!
By Chris Elliott
This past week has been breathtaking with yet another hike in readership leading to a new record reading on Wednesday 22nd January and we would like to say a very big thank you to all of our readers for visiting cyprusscene.com. When we compare readings for January 2013 with January 2014 up to the 25th January there is a 148% increase in readings. So what does this all mean?
Well, daily we are seeing new followers subscribing for news feeds of our latest articles which means they are kept updated with our latest news and review articles. We are seeing many comments being made on our articles plus increasing numbers of people asking for help to locate information and/or people.
Also during the past twelve months we have seen the number of new contributors and writers on our pages increase and we would like to say a special thank you to Bertil Wedin, Chris Green, Ismail Veli, Ismet Üstüner, John L Oakes, John Aziz Kent, Mary Day and Andrew Sings….. for your fascinating and informative articles and reviews.
Of course I should not forget my partner, Margaret Sheard, together with Ralph Kratzer, Trevor Hughes, Nigel Watson, and Graham Brown, GAU Talk plus – from Bayrak International, Can Gazi and Engin Dervişağa who have been so supportive by bringing their own articles and reviews to our pages in the past year and previous year.
What is fascinating is that as all articles remain live and they are continuing to be read along with our current pages and here are some examples:

All articles are published in English but there are facilities to translate through Google and 329 readers have visited this page to translate into 1 of 56 languages. We don’t claim it to be a perfect translation but it helps the reader understand what we are writing about in their chosen language.
