Ryno’s TV 7th Birthday

Another year has passed and it was definitely the most rewarding one to date.

2019 saw the beginning of a new era in streaming with the arrival Disney+; Lego Masters built up a lot of buzz; Stan released its first full Australian summer of original content – and all of this helped give the site some its best figures so far.

On the site-front, not much has really changed except for the addition of Amazon Prime and Disney+. I’ve continued to find my groove, churning out the highest number of reviews yet, with Secret Bridesmaids Business smashing it out of the park to be the most successful one of the year. These will continue to be the main focus point in 2020, with so much new content coming through.

I truly enjoy the journey that the site has evolved into, but it’s nothing without the support of some core people. First and foremost, the incredibly loyal audience – from the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading, commenting and sharing. It truly means a lot. To the publicists – there are way too many to mention personally, so a simple thank you for all your support.

Thanks must go to Bianca, Andrew and Laura, for helping get the Twitter-sphere talking. Special thanks to Chris Khoury for being a huge supporter and being there as a sounding board when needed. Also to Ryan Brink, who runs the Brink Of Reality Podcast , I am forever grateful for your advice, support and friendship.

Thanks must also go out to Steve Molk and Kevin Perry at TV Blackbox, Nadine at Gossip Communications, Anthony Farrell at The Pop Hub, and Victoria at  Just Me, Victoria, for their continued support and for answering questions, even though they are in fact running their own sites.

To Courtney Lewdon, you’re always last on this because you’re the hardest to write, so a simple thank you isn’t enough but that’s all I can muster as I look back at the journey that began as a late-night convo.

So, as a spectacular seventh year draws to a close, here’s hoping the eighth one is just as engrossing, if not more enlightening.

Ryno.
