If you're currently looking at this, then I must thank you already.

Who we are...

My name is Pete and along with the love of my life; Lucie, we are trying to create something new. For too long we have struggled, trying to make ends meet, just put food on the table. You see all these get rich quick scheme's on the internet, but let me tell you. They don't exist. There is no easy way to make money out there!

We live a life of mediocrity, working jobs that we don't want to work. With people we don't want to work with, just so we can bring home the minimum amount each month and survive for another month.

That is why, between us; we wanted to create something new for ourselves and our children. There are many blogs/entertainment sites out there at the moment, most of them very successful. We want to be one of those success stories.

We're not asking for the world, we'd just be happy with our own house.

How we started...

theSponge came about pretty quickly. Lucie said she wanted to create a fun blog and create articles that people wanted to read.

But alas, she didn't have the skill to create such a blog, so she decided to ask for my help.

I on the other hand am currently trying to get into web development. Trying to teach myself how to code; so I thought why not give this a go?

The name theSponge is very apt, just like a sponge soaks in water; theSponge helps you soak in fun stuff.

After some trials and tribulations, I learnt a lot of things about hosting a website such as this. Within the first month, something had gone wrong. The website started using too much resources and I didn't have a clue how to fix it. Then before I knew it the website was offline!

Luckily, thanks to the support at my host we manage to get back online.

We've only been going for about two months now and this is a very fun thing to do. Already with over 35,000 page views in those two months; we are truly blessed that so many people have visited us already!

What we do...

I think we're still trying to figure that out at times.

We report on the top news stories, post parenting tips, life hacks, subscription box reviews, places you should travel and basically anything we is awesome, and think you should see it too.

We're very social on the media's like any new blog should be, but it's a tough old place out there!

What we want...

Honestly, the biggest thing we want to be is successful. We want to have a popular place people can go and check out the latest cool stuff.

You see all these places that do tech reviews, movie/television reviews, showing everyone what's decent and what isn't in the world of shopping. Well, we want to be those people too!

Now you get to be apart of our exclusive community and get access to lots of cool stuff!

What we'd spend it on...

Upkeep of the site. - Unfortunately running a site like this does have its downsides and one of them is the costs of running the thing.
Paying contributors. - We'd love to actually pay people to come and write for us.
Working for theSponge full time, having the dream job we'd always hoped we'd have.
Taking on additional part-time staff in editorial and web design.
Giveaways/Competitions - The best of all, just like we have a giveaway on right now, we'd like to do these monthly. Giving back to the people that give us their time of day.

What you get...

The most important section of all... What do YOU get out of it? Apart from being in our new exclusive community, you'll automatically be entered in our giveaway's where you'll have the opportunity to win free stuff!


People love free stuff, I know I do!
