Today I have been putting the finishing touches to a presentation I will be making to a luncheon group soon about how and why cyprusscene started.
Basically I had the opportunity of writing for two North Cyprus newspapers in the past and I became frustrated with the knowledge that the newspapers could not tell me what articles had been read and by how many people if they published them and eventually wanting to be my own master, I graduated by creating a website cyprusscene.com which is non-commercial and has become the favourite reading of many people around the world which is so important as we can publish news about North Cyprus that others would not publish.
Cyprusscene is now almost 5 years old and we know how many people read our articles and where our readers live. Oddly the most highly all time read article is TRNC Post Codes which has had more than 45.000 readings. The bulk of our readers are in the UK, Turkey, Cyprus, USA, Australia etc.
Now all of this came about through a lot of hard work and education and we thank all of our contributors who have shared their news and reveiws with us.
Today we received some great news that the much beloved newspaper “Cyprus Today” has gone on line with a website and Facebook page and we send them our warmest wishes for a successful future as they now have a lot of news and reviews to start publishing on the internet and will soon start to enjoy the same successes we have achieved.
