CILISOS’ 2014 stats (and a quick word from our editor)

UGAIZ, As we come to the end of a difficult 2014, I’d like to just write a quick note about CILISOS’ first 8 months of existence (Our first article was published on 30th April 2014). We started this site with the goals of creating a moderate, more well-informed, and more optimistic Malaysia, and the response has been amazing. Here are a few brief stats from our first year.

1,47 million users came to our site generating over 2.77 million pageviews.

Our articles (all 225 of them) were shared 198,292 times on social media

Average share per article is 888 shares per article (WAH DAMN ONG WEI)

Yes, to a certain extent, this is a success story for our team, our investors, our writers and our designers. But honestly, when we started out, we weren’t sure if anyone would give a sh*t. With all the negativity that we see in Malaysian press, and the cynicism, we weren’t sure if CILISOS would actually fly. So more than for us, it’s a success for you.

You who forwarded our articles to friends.

You who talked about issues in a constructive manner.

You who liked our Facebook page.

You who let us know that you enjoyed our article.

You who took the chance to advertise with an unknown, and potentially controversial site.

You who had faith in a better Malaysia.

And it is that faith that powers us into a much better 2015. Thanks, and stay positive Malaysia. Because we love this country, and it seems that you do too. So the only way that Malaysia has any hope at all, is if we stay hopeful in a better future. So let’s take a moment to appreciate the optimism that Malaysia has shown in a year that tried its worst to snuff it out.

      Hahaha, Sorry Dan. We believe in taking our time with our content. Right now the commitment is a new article everyday at 8am.

      Publishing more would either require more people or less quality, and currently, we’re not ready for either 🙂

      But hey… if lots of advertisers come in 2015… who knows? 😉

    Truly an entertaining site that manages to provide “real-life” serious news with the right amount of humor. Like Nasi Lemak with just the right amount of sambal. I’ve enjoyed my visits here immensely. Thank you and all the best for the coming year Cilisos!

    (And congrats on the awesome stats lah seriously)

      Thanks Tharmz! We’ll try to keep at it, but we’re also hoping that real news is a little LESS ridiculous next year.

    You all have never failed to embarrassed myself by LOLing in public. Keep the humour as fresh as warm crap.
