Although I am running three websites at present, my earnings are not regular and steady enough for me to become self employed.
So can anybody recommend a good way to earn a living from the web?
This is the true secret I believe. So for each of us it is different. Follow your heart and you will never fail!

I have written some good articles to place up on the sites, and many people have sent me more to put up. The forums, though, are particularly difficult to get going.
Anyway, will persist. Becoming self-employed seems to be the only way I am going to make money at present, as the unemployment situation up here on Merseyside is VERY depressing, with HUNDREDS chasing each job. I can't even get temp Christmas work, that's how bad it is! It is really demoralising and depressing me. Thank God I have my websites for something to do during the miserable, interminable hours of long-term unemployment.
What makes it worse is when these employers don't even have the decency to reply to job applications. It is just plain ignorance!
Anyway, thanks again, everybody, for the advice, and keep the ideas coming for ways I can become self-employed through my websites.

Word of advice...... don't mess it up with those banners, keep it clean looking and uncluttered. Nice layout and I love the images!
Yep, impressive so far.
Oh I just noticed the adsense on it, hmmmm dunno about that. I understand you wanting to make money from it, but is adsense giving the wrong impression for your site?
What do you webby pros think about this..

If you possibly can - then make your own product and advertise it instead of becoming somebody elses employee/affiliate. They don't pay you, unless they earn more than you - on your work. Use it in reverse if you can - and get somebody to work for your product instead - that's a better option to enable you to earn and profit.
Don't tell anybody about your ideas and what you are going to do on a specific level - keep it abstract and general so nobody can pinpoint it exactly - before you have secured your positions in any potential markets surrounding it - especially not people you do not know face to face and on a personal level.
That's my advice, take it or leave it, and be happy :)
Sincerely, and have fun,
