Welcome To The New rukkle!
Hi there, welcome to the new rukkle. Whether you’re a regular visitor or a first timer, I really hope you’ll enjoy our new look and content focus.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to explain the rukkle journey so far and my plans for its future…
My name is Dave and I’m the founder of rukkle.com. I first launched rukkle back in June 2011 and for the past two years, with the help of some great friends, I’ve enjoyed bringing you the latest entertainment news and videos, each and every day.
Since I began, the project has enjoyed many high points; it has been featured and referenced by many ‘traditional’ media outlets across the world and it has been nominated for a number of prestigious web awards – winning the 2011 Eircom Spider People’s Choice award.
Over the past while however it became clear to me that for rukkle to have a real chance of continued growth and success, it was going to need something else, something that would help it to stand out a little more from the overcrowded entertainment news market.
Rethinking my initial plan was very difficult as any big change would ultimately end up alienating some of rukkle’s existing loyal fans, however, I came to the conclusion this was something I had to take a chance on, hoping you/they would understand my intentions.
With all restrictions taken away and a blank page in front of me, I set about planning what new direction rukkle could take and how this could be achieved without losing too much of what rukkle was created for. After much thought, I decided to take rukkle’s focus away from the wider entertainment news field and instead enter the niche area of gay entertainment and culture coverage.
While this field is being serviced by a number of big players across the world, I feel the new rukkle has a number of different attributes (some of which are outlined in our new about page) that will make it cut through and hopefully become a successful key player in the gay media market.
So what can you expect from the gay rukkle? Well, while I will still post updates on the days top trending stories and viral videos, now from a gay perspective, I will be spending less time on this type of ‘breaking news’ content and more time on writing feature length articles and producing multimedia content that can be enjoyed for longer.
Whether this is your first visit of many, or your last visit following many, thank you very much for your support and I hope you continue to spread the word…
