2012 in review

Just in time for the New Year to truly start at the international date line, the stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt for all you stats lovers:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 9,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 16 years to get that many views.

Not surprisingly, maybe, this blog was mostly viewed in the UK, Greece and Germany and here’s a big thank you to the Octopus, Tilos island and Lifo Magazine for being among the top referring sites spreading word about us.

Seeing that THE ISLAND BUS is all about a multi-national community in a miniature “global” village (well, make that two villages, a ghost village and two hamlets, in other words Tilos Island), I’m especially fond of the map section which you can see if you scroll down a bit.

Click here to enjoy the screen fireworks some clever developers have created for our viewing pleasure and see the complete report.

There were views from 83 countries in all! From the tip of Northern Canada to the South Island of New Zealand, from Siberia to Patagonia, we’ve had visitors from every continent – but Antarctica. (What’s up down there, guys? Don’t you like buses?)

Thank you for your interest in our documentary and see you again next year!

Happy 2013!
