WordPress Based Sites
For basic website stuff that other people are likely to have to maintain I use WordPress. A third of the world’s websites use WordPress. It’s easy for others to learn how to use once I set it up.
My band website is a good example of a simple WordPress site built to showcase music. It has all of the basic things implemented. It also has a grip of features that are deployed but not being utilized. I had originally envisioned other band members helping me with the website but that was a pipe dream. If you’re interested in combining website design with event promotion you can message me for a look at how the back end is set up as it’s probably my portfolio’s most extreme example of a group managed event site.
Checkered Hat is on the other end of the spectrum of complications. It’s simple, looks good on all screens and ranks really well in search. Checkered Hat also has another component listed in the non-WordPress section.
I built a dropshipping store using WordPress, Woo-commerce, and Shopmaster. It’s completely automatic, sorta… If I had time to actually play with product descriptions and promote it, the site would actually be completely functional. It’s got sort of a home depot warehouse kind of feel.
Source Passive is also built on WordPress. The site is more marketing-focused than the other sites. The site is smooth and pretty but keyword ranking and marketing tools are the focus. If you play with it you’ll be prompted to get notifications and join a mailing list. The lists and notifications are automated to promote whatever gets posted.
Sleeping Stagehands is the most feature-rich of the WordPress sites I’ve built. It’s Yelp, Facebook, Reddit, and a dozen other sites rolled in one and oriented towards stagehands. It has a few users and a few articles. It also has a store that resells stuff off the first store.
My personal site runs on WordPress as well. It’s a simple portfolio with Google Calendar integration.
I have a couple more WordPress sites but I’ll save those for the bottom of the list. Just in case you have a tendency to get distracted.
Sites without WordPress as a CMS
Ad Lotto is the glue in all the cracks. It’s a gamified display ad network that pays Bitcoin to some of the people who see ads. Currently, it’s not connected to the Bitcoin mainnet. If you make an account and create ads, they’ll run. I’m implementing ad zones across my sites and until I switch over to real money I encourage you to run ads until your heart is content. It’s a very utility design but has a very deep functionality. The site is already providing ads to numerous sites listed here and will be fully integrated with Checkered Hat Live soon.

Bad Lot is a security tool designed for the needs of my more risque websites. The site’s target market is the developers of cryptocurrency, porn, and gambling sites. The website you see actually is the default response of the API I built to handle the requests. If you’re paying attention you’ll see how I stagger the image loading to briefly flash the outline of a hacker in the Matrix numbers before covering it up with the Bad Lot image. During the split second between image loads, the site is analyzing your IP in order to display the details about it when you scroll down. All of the other sites listed here (and a few others) rely on Bad Lot for some element of their operations.
Metafaucet is a crowdsourced cryptocurrency rotator. It’s a simple way for me to make sure my porn sites don’t run out of payout money between my advertiser payouts. It takes people from one Bitcoin faucet to the next and every time someone collects, I get a commission. The commission automatically funds my faucets.
This one is a simple front end for a calculator The nontraditional, two-color palette and pretentious choice in fonts provide the basis for how the site feels. If you’re on desktop, try resizing the window and you’ll see how I’ve designed the site to look good at any size.
Stagewash.co is going to be my equipment company. At the moment it’s nothing but an example of branding based design. Note the simple color palette.
Subversi.co is my plot to overthrow everything with blockchain technology. Design-wise I was focusing on images, colors, and feel.
Adult Themed Websites
I have built two adult websites that utilize WordPress for a CMS alongside a dizzying array of plugins and custom coding.
The original website that pays you to watch porn. This website is battle-tested and utilizes an array of different tools to lighten the load on the server. It’s getting enough traffic that it’s still swamping the server it’s currently on during peak loads. The site currently hosts over 80,593 videos.
Porn Faucet is a slightly different take on the same concept as Porn Fountain. All of the categories and whatnot were chosen based on hard data collected on the original site. The site is still young but already hosts over 30,783 videos. Once I switch to the new server I will be integrating a cam service with it which utilizes the same video streaming as Checkered Hat Live.
