    Do you make money online? How?


    We're all a bunch of internet enthusiasts here. The great thing about a penchant for programming / internet stuff is that it involves a fairly well tested commerce tool versus say, i dunno, being really enthused about playing halo.

    The point is: there is money to be made with our skillsets (beyond a job and such). How are you using the Internet medium to generate money, and what channels are you employing?

    me:
    I sell advertising on a few sites, mostly employment sites, and I'm launching an advertising community within the next month. I also do a little bit of ebaying - buying computer parts low and bulk and selling high. Also - I host a few sites for people at a monthly rate.

    It's not much, but enough to get me a stable set of machines at a host and fund my horribly un-frugal buying habits.

    What do u do?

    Never argue with fools. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
