WebmasterWorld.com should already be paying you, look at the traffic your thread is generating.
LOL. But seriously. It's taken me about 3 years to get to the $100 a day level but I sure have enjoyed doing it. My background is in journalism though, and I know for a fact that literary agents troll blogs in search of promising writing talent. A former colleague of mine is also an amusing writer and got an offer to submit a book proposal based upon his blog. And his blog wasn't drawing a huge number of visitors; it was just very well written. I wouldn't necessarily go the freelance writing route though; it pays so poorly and now they want you to give up all copyright till the end of time. If you can get something that pays and also allows a link back to your blog or that allows you to keep copyright so you can also post the content on your blog, that could work. Good luck!
