In. I plan on throwing up some Youtube channels in the next couple of months, though I hate doing business with (((censors))). But whether this gets off the ground is problematic. One of the Johnnys (1975 maybe) has tried to light the latent entrepreneurial fires of this forum without much luck (though he did finally get some good feedback on his own project at least when Winston featured it in a thread).

I'm in. In fact I just submitted a rating on Amazon for Expatriation Ragnarok. For passive income, I may turn to D-Tube (decentralized alternative to YouTube) or BitChute.

I would be in except I'm too lazy to get a credit card in order to buy your book. When I finally do I might be in.

Been working on a new forum all year (not in the HA niche). It's *really* hard work now - there's more competition especially from the social media giants. So far I've had a lot of spammers but I do now have a top notch regular poster that isn't just another persona of mine.

My tip is to go nano-niche. I have a lot of competitors and the guys in nano-niches have zero competition. They also have thriving communities because people in nano-niches are super obsessive about their interest in the topic.

Another tip - keep investing in stuff which pays you an income because I made far more from investments than from the online stuff.

I'm in. It's a great idea, Ghost!

Actually, what would be even better would be another website/forum where decent moderation and an organized system be put in place to eventually replace HA altogether. Right now, HA is a mess. Lol

Well, we all remember what a disaster it was when you were moderating this forum, so I don't think we'll be taking your advice there.

HA was better before. Now, we have trolls like PAG and other's trolling the hell out of the forum. It's a disaster, tbh.

Not sure I agree with you, Cornfed.

You were opposed to free speech and arbitrarily censored stuff you didn't like, particularly based on racial grounds. I don't know what the answer is to the current problems, but I don't think it is that.

Can't you use PayPal or a debit card or an ATM card or pay with bank account directly, to buy a book or ebook from Amazon?

Btw Kindle PC is free to download from Amazon so you can read ebooks on your PC or laptop.

This is a good idea. But the exchange needs to be fair. I don't know how it could be enforced though. What if someone gets jipped and doesn't follow through on his part? If so we can at least kick him out of the group I guess. It'd be an honor system where people gain trust by reputation and past conduct. What should the subforum be called? Just "Happier Abroad Support Network"?
