    I dont really even try and make money from this, it is a hobbu. all money is re-invested into the sites i own to make them more user friendly and appealing.
    SEMrush
    One day I will think about making money.

    Sadly no, I do make a little but but I don't get as many visits to my site as I'd like. I really know little about getting my site out there. Hopefully in the coming months that will change!

    I do, I used to be self employed but then got a job as a nightclub manager and spent more time drinking then I did working so now I am self employed again.

    It is better for my health . . . probably.

    It's looking good so far!

    Almost half of us who voted here do make a living as a webmaster, that means it can be done! :)

    I'm Going to give it a damn good try this year. I have a great coach who is teaching me the ropes, I brought more e-books that I have novels. Thats pretty scary since I'm a book hound.

    I'm also 3 weeks into it and Can tell you I see money at the end of this trail.

    I think it is not down to chance, but down to hard work, long hours, learning from your mistakes etc...I have been doing this a year now, and earnt next to nothing for the 30 - 50 hrs a week I have been putting in. Its only just starting to pay off now, but definatly worth the work.

    No. Making money on the net for me requires a ton of work.

    I do it mainly as a hobby because I like doing it but I doubt it will ever become my main job.
