lol.. me and canuk are similar in MANY MANY ways http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif. All the money I make on the net is pretty much money that I can spend anywhere I want, because my parents pay for everything.

Anyway, the beauty of living in Canada is that I get all the things you guys do at same prices, except everytime I get a check in the mail, its worth 1.5x as much http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif.

Well I guess it really depends on the month. I've had various sites and net projects running over the past 2 years. Some have been profitable, most have not. The highest I've ever been able to bring in is $5K a month. Nowadays, I'm lucky to get $2K.

I can't live off it, nor would I want to. I also wouldn't want to make a career out of working on the net. Working on the net is dreary, boring and often depressing. There just seems to be a gloomy feel to the net once you start putting in full time hours.

I'd be happy with a job and a small profitable website on the side.

Coming from a US attached country to Canada for University, the prices are NOT the same. Something you can get at Wal-Mart in the states for $99 cost $350 in Canada including taxes (talking specifically about a stereo). Also have you Canadians ever tried to buy the American dollar with a Canadian ? *ouch* and taxes. wait until you start paying taxes, my uncle and aunt pay over 45% of their income in taxes and it goes as high as 54% of your income.

The joys of living in Canada, and I havent even started on the cold eh.

Ravi

PS. I am Canadian, I just dont live in Canada

HA! i think i am one of the lucky geeks who lives in low cost of living country. i am from malaysia, USD = 3.8XRM, which means if i am earning USD$1500 = RM$5700!!! most managers in big firms are earning less than RM$5700!!! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/eek.gif

well, due to the advantage that i have, i do plan to be a full time webmaster after i finished my degree(end of this year) and further my study(part time) ... i am currently earning around $800/month, which is kind of ok income for me http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif ... so hopefully by the end of this year i will be able to achieve my target of $1500/month http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

in my opinion, we must always prepare for the worst, so its better to have alternative skills/working opportunity rather than just concentrate totally on the internet, as we might not know what will happen in the future ... e.g. cpm will drop 50%/termination of account by sponsors/liquidation of the company/what if you are tired of sitting in front of the computer for 10 hours daily? ... so if internet doesn't work out good ... you will be able to get other jobs http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

10 hours a day? man, how many sites do you people run, and what exactly do you spend 10 hours on? I mean, i'm pry on this computer around 8 - 12 hours a day, but only do actual work for lik 10 - 15 minutes up to an hour on a good day, the rest is either simple or entertaining and i don't really consider it work. Even the 10 - 15 minutes of work isn't hard or boring yet, I enjoy working on the internet, and really hope that I never have to get a REAL job...

Naw, I don't make even close to the amount I would need to call it quits from my day job. I make enough to put a good dent in a truck payment or a credit card bill. I can't imagine that even this will last forever. I enjoy it while it lasts.

Yeah, i don't see this lasting forever either, but I hope it lasts long enough so that I NEVER have to get a job, hehehe (like thats going to happen http://geekvillage.com/ubb/frown.gif ) naw, I enjoy working on the internet. And I must admit, I often come to this site more often than there are new posts... Maybe I'm addicted http://geekvillage.com/ubb/eek.gif yeah anyways (as I ramble on) what kind of work could you do for 3 hours on your page (unless its new) I find that I can update my page and send out mailings in no time, and that if you check your stats more than like once every 3 hours or so you just go nuts...

Yeah basically i work on my computer about an hour a day now (other than checking stats) and i'm probably going to bring in more money than my dad next month, which is going to **** him off like none other.
Most adults get angry when they learn that some teenager is making twice as much as them and they went to college for 6 years... heh

Ok, for me Im online as much as Knix (If not less) and work as much as Johnny on my site http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif. I think I'll give up my opertunity on computers, too dull. I'd rather explore the world being a pilot (or just be one for the New Zealand Air Force lol http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif) http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif. Hmmm.....

My best month so far was $7.000
But now with the decrease of CPM advertising I'm at around $3000-4000.
It is quite good but given my traffic I could easily make $10.000.

I spend around 5 hours daily on my computer.
And I can't tell you it is not easy when you're married and when you've a day job (I do not sleep that much)

I spend most of the time promoting my sites, speaking with people and going to this board.

I'm 31. A lot of members of this board are much younger. I would like to get the time you have to build sites.
If I was still at school I would earn much more than today.
Internet is a fantastic opportunity and it was not there when I was 16-18...

What amuses me is when you tell your parents how much you're earning on the net. They do not believe it is possible.

Their first reaction is "IS THIS LEGAL?" because its hard to believe you could get so much money for doing so little. And mlbs, why don't you buy a laptop and then run your page (15 minutes - 5 hours of work daily) and be a pilot and see the world and stuff, hehe, I think that would be much simpler http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif. I guess I'm just missing the point tho, SO,,,
quick, kick me in the junk!
