Wanted to see how many of you are working a day job while running your website, or are you making enough $$ to support yourself with your website?

(I am consulting full-time and i run my website at night and on weekends)

Fulltime - for a large retail corporation in house webDude

Part Time - I donate my time to a puppy foster home website I admin it.

Over Time - I work all day and come home work, then try to soak in some learnin'! - Working on SEO now =P

FutureTime - Planing on creating two websites 1 for profit and 1 a non profit site for abused children, and the parents, spouses, siblings of abused children past or present.

Currently I make no money except for the day job... what ashame I guess I like donating my time...

Ah, but ID LOVE TO ACTUALLY MAKE SOME $$$

Cheers-

A feeling of great happiness or well-being.

part-time, learning as I go - operating a site as a volunteer for a NFP youth organization. Our base territory covers about 1/3 of my home state's geography, although we also seem to be having a steady increase in visits from out of area visitors as well.

Still contemplating making myself dive head first into all those CSS posts to cure page bloat, but so far I'd either have to give up camping, or ww world, or the day job, and well, all three are right important to my mental well being.

My day job is as an intranet developer - columns of numbers from the main computer system. The interesting stuff I do part time, some for money, and some for the experience (and maybe future money), There are not enough hours in the day.

Edited to fix typo

I can't afford to be full time :)

Not on my own anyway. Business is good some quarters, bad others. I'm the lead for an SEO firm in the daytime, and an independent contractor whenever I have free time (though I find I end up working on projects with friends more than anything in my free time).

Nice thread Webdevsf :) Good to see lots of us 'newer folk' coming out to play :)

I'm 2 months out from quitting my full-time job (tech engineer to 1500 computer abusers), leaving my home country, emigrating 20,000kms to a non-english speaking land (big city to pathetically small village), and devoting 24/7 (and then some) to this webmaster lark.

**gulp**

And it's all WW's fault.

2odd...

(thanks WW :)

Full Time = Webmaster / Developer / Marketer / SEO / System Admin / Troubleshooter / Tech Advisor / Excel Expert / ... So pretty much everything to do with technology for a small fence company that went online at the beginning of the year.

Part Time or when I find time = Run 2 personal sites and trying to get a business and site up and running, but haven't had time latey because I just bought a house. Also have aspirations of affiliate site in the future.

On my own time. Work a 40+ hour work week for someone else. My own two sites are not paying yet, they both cost at this point. Too much competition for me to make a go of this as an independent, but do home to get some work on the side in this or other computer related activities.
