My Situation

I'm Paul and I love talking and writing about rugby. Amazingly there's a whole bunch of you that enjoy listening and reading what I do.

Over the last 5 years DrivingMaul.com has had nearly 700 thousand views WOW! I written over 1,300 posts, recorded over 900 YouTube videos, over 190 podcasts and have 20K Twitter followers (yup I've created a load of stuff). It’s a passion of love and as such I have had to balance my day job (when I've had one) and DrivingMaul. Some ofter stuff I do:

  1. Produce weekly predictions for The Rugby Championship, 6 Nations, International Rugby, Super Rugby, Aviva Premiership, Pro14, Top14, Currie Cup, Mitre10 Cup, NRC and more
  2. Host #RugbyChat show live every Tue 8pm
  3. Host The All Blacks Edition show live every Wed 8pm
  4. Host Preview & Review Shows for Super Rugby live Mon & Thu 8pm
  5. Host Post Match Reaction shows
  6. Write/record opinion, feature and news flash pieces
  7. Write a weekly Newsletter to keep you up to date with everything I'm doing
I want DrivingMaul to give you all of this and more for a long time to come. I can’t do this without your support as DrivingMaul has to start paying it’s way.

What I’ll use the money for

As Patron @EsseHunter said on Twitter “Can’t expect quality service and content for free … easily worth the price of one coffee (or beer) a month. Maybe even more."

Simply the idea is that DrivingMaul creates an income that allows me to work on it part-time and maybe even eventually full-time. Here is where the money will go:

  • Hosting. There has to be a website for you guys to read and a podcast to listen to.
  • Tools. I need help and this comes from tools that help with scheduling tweets and recording videos and podcasts as well as some much needed hardware. These all come at a cost.
  • Me. This is the big one. I need to continue to eat, feed my family, put a roof over our heads, etc… whilst I'm spending time working on providing you with fabulous content. I’m not looking to be a millionaire just to be able to survive doing what I love, which is talking about rugby.

Thanks for any support you can offer, if you decide to, and thanks for being a viewer/listener/reader/Tweeter/etc..!
