TVWriter™ All-Time Top Posts

Holy Moly, Kids! TVWriter™ Turned 20 Years Old This Year & We Forgot to Tell You!

The original TV Writer Home page, with its garish green scroll. Yes, a couple of the images are missing, but we think it’s amazing that a third one, the tiny yellow pencil – and the rest of the landing page – are still up on the web at The Internet Archive Wayback Machine

Talk about embarrassing. Among other things going on during the year 2018 – for better and for worse – this year also marks the 20th Anniversary of TVWriter™, and we were so caught up in the day-to-day chaos that we didn’t just forget to tell y’all, we also forgot the exact date.

So, having checked and rechecked our info, here’s an exciting factoid with which we can close out TVWriter™’s 2018 books:

Our Founder, Larry Brody registered the URL “TVWriter.Com” twenty years, five months, and four+ weeks ago, on July 1st, 1998 and went live with it the next day.

The original heading for the site was “The TV Writer Home Page” primarily because at the time all domains were called “home pages.” Over the next few years the heading evolved into “TVWriter.Com,” and about 4 years ago we started calling it TVWriter™, omitting the “.Com” thing (because we actually had relocated to a “.Net” URL, but that’s a whole other story).

TVWriter™ has been a labor of love for Larry Brody and the various volunteers who have helped him through these years, and we offer both our gratitude and our congratulations to everyone who has contributed so much time, energy, and talent to the site.

Inasmuch as we’re taking a much needed Winter Break right now and won’t be back with new articles and posts until January 2nd, we thought we would give our visitors a treat – and keep you busy – in the form of this linked list of our most popular posts and pages over TVWriter™’s wonderful twenty years of interweb life.

Here they are, TVWriter™’s 50 most visited articles, starting with Numero Uno and working down. Enjoy:
