2019.

Hi, welcome to Sofa Moolah. Sofa Moolah is a blog about dealing with sobriety; a way to force myself to stay accountable so that I don’t relapse. Started in 2012 it has been successful in every conceivable way with the main contributors not having touched addictive substances since inception. Oh wait, no, that doesn’t sound right.

Sofa Moolah was originally created as a way for Dan & I to write about entrepreneurship and making money online. Young, naive and plenty of ideas to write about. Is it ironic that as we get older our ideas become scarce and attention turned to other things we found important? Talk to me about the one constant in my life for the past 5 years and I wont tell you about a partner. I wont talk about a business that is growing. What I can talk about is the dependence on a substance that has the potential to send people to early graves. Was Sofa Moolah created as a diary entry for when I inevitably cash out early? I hope not.

What I hope is that I can take this entry and talk briefly about what I’ve got going on. Let’s talk about making money online and entrepreneurship. Below you will find the 4 projects that are currently active:

  • Wacky Waving Man
  • Upstart Web / Freelancing
  • Upstart Host
  • Knock Off Time

Let’s go through them quickly.

  • Wacky Waving Man

This is my largest project in the past few years. Despite cunts ripping off my idea and creating an inferior product, I’ve still invested just under $6,000 on it to date. I still need to inject a few thousand dollars into it to get a working prototype but I’m hopeful that once I do I’ll have something that is ready for market. Maybe by the end of 2019 I’ll have something that can generate some money.

  • Upstart Web / Freelancing

This is quite obvious. Bills need to be paid and so I took on freelance work. I have very little skills so I opted to build websites for small businesses. We make about $1,000/week so its worthwhile for the time being.

  • Upstart Host

The businesses I build websites for need domains & hosting. After a few months I decided why not offer it myself. Dan & I have a reseller server and make about $500/month with close to 50 active clients.

  • Knock Off Time

I literally started this tonight. It’s a fun project and hopefully it will get me back into the groove of creating products. It’ll be a website where you can find fun drinking games for movies & TV shows. Not the best niche, but whatever.

It’s tough writing this at 11:00pm on a Saturday night, but let’s hope that similar blog posts are coming in the future. Maybe even with increased revenue, more projects or less dependencies.

12 Months After Ending My Sobriety

I was sober for a year between August 2016 – August 2017. You can read about that experience by clicking here. It was incredibly tough and yet I learnt nothing from it. Weird, right? Now a year later I look back on that experience and see where I sit 12 months later.

A Quick, Honest Look at Where’s MH370

I find honest reflection something that very few do. Why do we insist on living in the shadows of our truth? I mean, let’s just be honest, put all of our cards on the table and see where we’re at. If you’ve been one of the (very few) people following Dan & I’s progress over the past… 7 years you’ll know that the projects are slow, progress non-existent & blog posts imaginary. But alas, let’s take a peep at one of my larger projects Where’s MH370.

1 Year of Sobriety

I told myself that I will be sober for a year. It was tough, sure, but I got there. It’s done. First Sunday of August. An entire year. Great, now what? I’m not too sure what the point of writing this blog post is. I don’t want to gloat, I don’t want any recognition, I don’t want to be reminded of this “achievement” as its been nothing but counter-productive. When this weight comes off it wont be freeing, it will be a burden.

Embracing the Useless

For years I’ve said that I build products that no-one wants or needs and yet somehow they find an audience. This couldn’t be more true if you take a look back at my past projects and see how they’ve taken off, and been embraced by people all around the world. From How Many Midgets Could You Eat – the first website I created back when I was a teenager that allowed users to take a quiz to figure out a score to an incredibly stupid question – to Ship Your Enemies Glitter and then to the more recent Hardcore Prawn Lawn.

All of these sites share a similar theme which is why it makes sense that Dan and I would eventually come to create UselessWeb.com, an aggregator of all the crazy, useless websites that people like us have created.
