Good warning Stout.
The OP never really disclosed how he plans on earning money from his endeavor.
I read it as if he plans on doing web development, but now I see that it was ambiguous as to how he plans on making a living from this.
If indeed he plans on trying to monetize from 1 site then I would be a little more alarmed for his chances.
Regardless of how he plans to profit I would say try to find more than one source of revenue. You don't want to spread yourself too thin, but when left on your own you should be working on things that make you money and if you don't have anything to do in that regard then you should be working on discovering other streams of revenue that fit with what you are already doing.
Don't get stuck doing 1 thing. This basically reduces your points of failure. If all you have is 1 site and 1 way to monetize from it, then all it takes is for 1 thing to happen to that site and your income is gone.... with multiple ways of earning, if 1 way fails the others may sustain you until the 1 that went down is replaced or resolved.
