I feel much more secure having the FT gig plus the income from the site, rather than relying only on one or the other.
That's yet another excellent reason to not rely on a single revenue stream. Diversifying, as JaneDoe pointed out, is a good strategy. What you are doing is similar, diversifying your income. As you pointed out, rejoining the workforce is probably good for your mental health, too. It gives you the opportunity to socialize with more people on a daily basis.
Great post! :)
