in my mind, real world jobs are no more secure than relying on website income. they can both disappear in a month. but at least with website income you can't get sacked. whether you suceed or fail is up to you... people blame panda and stuff like that, but panda is not indescriminate. if you put the work and research in, then you will be okay.
some people (not you) talk as if one day all your income will disappear, overnight, through no fault of your own, and that is why you shouldn't rely on website income. but that is nonsense - there is always a reason.
given a choice between a real world job and this, i will stick with my site. i don't like the idea of being made redundant in my fifties, with a mortgage and payments to make, and me down the job centre again starting afresh. at least with website income its all in your own hands.
