The Doomed MV Princess of the Stars

No, I'll not gonna talk about the latest update about this ill-fated ship nor updates about the fatality. Instead, I'll talk about the number of page views from my photo of the said ship.

Before the tragedy, the number of page views was just around 2,000++, but a day after the news broke, I noticed a sudden surge of views, a 100% increase and five days after, a whopping 479% increase. As of today (28 June 2008, 17:03 Manila Time), it has 11,580 number of views.

Along with the number of views, also came the photo's popularity --> I saw it on YouTube, on a number of blogs, on some european tv news network. Comments also came (including nasty ones on some of the pics from my other photostream), a number of email messages also came, invitations to add as contacts, to join groups etc.

No big deal actually, I'm just happy that a lot of people came to view my pictures. Not to mention the piece of information that I have just shared to everybody.

What I fervently wish is that I hope people will put a little bit of space for the credits, (cause a lot of them never did :-( .. whatever!).
