For the last few years there have been loads of easy options for putting a DIY website online. I thought this would eventually affect my ability to earn a living but the bottom line is that I am now in my ninth year of doing this and busier than I have ever been...
There are free and/or low cost options for just about everything. Why use an attorney when you can write a will or contract with free/cheap software? Why hire an accountant when you can use Quickbooks?
Well, you get what you pay for, don't you...

Interestingly, I have been involved in a series of emails this morning that may end up with me firing a long time client. Seems they have a new person heading up Marketing who wants me to be a simple coder. Problem is, I can see this one shaping up as a setup to be blamed for the failure of their "promotions". I have no problem whatsoever working coraboratively, but it chaffs more than a bit to be micro-managed by someone who knows not what they speak of.
Will see if higher-ups have more sense, but I am not feeling particularly optimistic right now :(
