otok-Hvar.com: filming is complete, we are ready for GAST

We have to admit that none of us here at the otok-hvar.com portal is a fan of self-promotion. Somehow we always prefer that our actions speak for themselves. Your supportive emails and phone calls mean a lot to us and we hope that in the years to come we will have the strength to keep you interested as well as justify the trust of our audience and the advertisers.
If the number of clicks and statistics provided by Google Analytics are a relevant fact on which to go by, then indeed we have a good reason to be satisfied.
Unfortunately we live in times when branding and self-promotion is an inevitable part of marketing. Profiting from other people’s work is not uncommon in the meadia reality of today so we hope you will forgive us for this following digression from the classical framework of news but we feel obliged to tell you how things really are.
We are trying to portray Hvar outside of the narrow box where we are placed by local, foreign and other media. Why would some prince be in every article of our portal or a number of other portals and why should we have to mention that one pregnant world diva had a swim at Pakleni Otoci!? Just so that Google would rank us better and that Hvar is continually described as a party destination!? No, thank you.
