Thanks for taking the time to inspire us newbies. I´ve been on my way to set up my websites for couple of years now but being a cronic procrastinator I´m not getting there fast enough. My main motivation for becoming a webmaster is to be my own boss and to be able to earn a living without being tied to a geographic location. It´s just that I get owerwhelmed by all the tings I imagine I need to learn, also I´m technologically challenged and programming reminds me alot of math that was my worst subject in school. I´m also too affected by others oppinions, I sometimes feel that if I´m going to do all that work in solitude I should be striving to become a artist or novelist, that gets respect in society while peoples eyes tend to glaze over when they hear mention of internet, web deveoloping or programming. Then again I haven´t got an idea for a novel but many for websites. Guess the choise is between getting respect but little money as successful novelist or getting money but little respect as successful webmaster.
