  1. Pamir Times was a window to the world in respect of Attabad landslide.
    I would be surprised if in 2011 PT even gets 33% of visitors of 2010.
    having said teh above,PT needs to focus more on Natural disasters and climate change and other issues of development moving forward.

  2. Of course Attabad landslide had been the visitor’s magnet. But many people have not visited Pamir Times once, I am sure they also revisited it. And that is a sign for good journalistic work. Well done!

    There had been some sources of informations about the Attabad landslide disaster, but not many offered good pictures and different views. And that is important in medias like the world wide web. Readers got the chance to create a little bit of an “own view”, to focus on the aspects they are interested in…

    And even if you visited Pamir Times “just to get an update of the Attabad situation”, you saw other articles, learned more about the entire region. Because of Attabad, many people visited this page, but this way you also got the chance to represent this wonderful area, even make it interesting for tourists. External presentation can be good promotion! And this is the way to reach people from all over the world…

    But – as already said above – time kills all news. Not to lose the readers, new interesting topics must be found. And to cover a broad readership, topics must be spread. A difficult task for a small team, so I hope you are successful in finding new reporters from all over GB. That is not a only a chance for Pamir Times, that is a chance for entire GB and its development, its future. TAKE IT AND CREATE IT!
