Updated: Our 2 Millionth Visitor Is From Switzerland


Our 2 Millionth visitor to Barbados Free Press is from Switzerland (Brrrrrr… cold!). They visited us on January 1, 2008, 21:44:36 hours GMT from “American Express Bank (Switzerland) SA”

As we see time and time again, everywhere you go you find Bajans. Such a tiny island, yet our brothers and sisters are all over the world.

So hello to our friend at American Express Bank (Switzerland). We hope you enjoyed your 17 minute stay at Barbados Free Press and we hope you return soon!

Original Article…

What A Way To Kick Off 2008!

Hello friends,

We didn’t think it would happen until mid-January, but if the trend holds Barbados Free Press will welcome visitor number 2 Million within the hour.

When BFP published our first article back on January 17, 2006 we never dreamed that so many folks would be visiting us from Barbados, the rest of the Caribbean and around the world. We had no idea how well BFP would be received by Bajans who are hungry for freedom of speech and tired of the corruption that permeates our government.

Now, almost two years later – after two thousand articles and forty-one thousand reader comments – we will say hello to visitor number two million. It is said that wherever you go on this planet you will find a Bajan, and that must be true because we’ve had Bajans log on to BFP from as far away as Finland and Vietnam!

Our 2 millionth visitor will be here within the hour and we can’t wait to see where they will visit us from.

Thanks for your support dear readers. We would be nothing without each of you.

    Congratulations BFP!

    You might be interested to know that the BLP blog has had over 71,000 visitors since it went up in May of 2006. 🙂

    We have done a number of stories on money laundering, but I suppose you would like to hear how Gline Clarke pushed his way to the front of the que in the bank one day and was overheard and seen by those who had been displaced in the que.

    Or maybe it was the story about our new High Commissioner in Nigeria?

    Yep, OK… We’ll try and get it together in a week or so.

    Besides… our credibility would never be at steak… because who can afford steak?

    Hey BFP that must be some kind of sophisticated tracking system that you have where you can actually name the company where your guest surfed from ( I am assuming that it was not an email contact). Perhaps you can also use it to identify the gov’t offices where those slanderous attacks originate and publish the sources.

    No secrets, Sargeant. Several websites provide free online tracing of IP numbers. Mostly they lead to the internet supplier but no further (ie: Cable & Wireless), but when an organisation has a fixed IP it will lead to that organisation. ie: American Express.

  4. So I am here listening to the DLP cultural extravaganza and during John Boyce speech the streaming was interrupted, when it finally came back on it was a repeat mix of music. Makes no sense to me, anybody knows what went wrong?….at this moment the streaming is on but there is silence.

    David Thompson announced that the wires were deliberately cut.

    It wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out by who, from which party, and at who’s behest

    Political sabotage can come from within for empathy. That is what you call propaganda.
