For anyone interested, as if it needed reiterating: Yes, it is possible and actually quite easy to make a good living online. The trick is persistence and the ability to figure things out on your own. The reason for my break is because I've been having quite a good year, business wise, and so I'm going to be focusing a lot more of my time and efforts on that. It's been an amazing 5 years or so with all of you at BHW, I've learnt so much from the forum, etc, etc. I'll probably still be around every now and then, but won't really be too active during my hiatus. Wishing you all the best!
