    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!

    Hey enjoy your time away we will be here when you decide to become more active again. I am sure you deserve your time away to spend time more offline.

    LOL. I saw t0mmy's departure thread right before I posted this one actually. I'm sure I'll be back from time to time, once I give myself a bit more room to breathe.

    It's like 9/11, but then two months later American Airlines Flight 587 crashed into a busy part of Queens and killed 250+ people, and nobody remembers that it happened.

    ...Except instead of plane crashes it's BHW members. And 9/11 was @t0mmy. And AA 587 is you, @Conor.

    Just kidding. Will miss your wisdom nuggets around these parts. Drop in occasionally plz.

    I suspect someone set up a competitor forum that's gonna surreptitiously show up somewhere soon.

    These recent threads smell fishy.

    And you blamed my thread...

    That's why I made it...I predicted another reputable member will go off.

    Just to be clear, and you can quote me on this: My reasons for the becoming less active on the forum have nothing to do with any other members on the forum, I have no interest in starting a competitor forum, nor am I working in collaboration with anyone else on this forum. I'm a web designer who happens to be having quite a busy year so far. The time I chose to become less active (and post this thread) is also totally unrelated to the recent departures of any other forum members.

    Anyone can find me fairly easily on Google, should they suspect me of having some sort of hidden agenda.

    Good on you mate, it's obvious that the successful, busy people don't have time to sit around BHW. I mean there are successful people who've automated their money-making and continue to hang around BHW because it's a nice community that they feel a part of, but I can completely understand choosing to focus on your work if you're actively working and have a lot of business to attend to. In that case BHW can really become a time-suck and productivity drain. Good luck with your endeavors!

    So you're the designer?

    Who's gonna be the back end developer :p ?

    Haha. Take it easy Conor, just messing with you. Several threads saying "guys I'm leaving goodbye" ...so you should expect some jokes. I mean you gotta admit, quite the coincidence don't ya think? Similar motives too..."gotta work on my projects"... I mean how much time does this forum take from you that you couldn't stay with us and still do your projects? Why announce you're leaving?

    But anyway, take it lightly, I'm just fooling around. No offense. And no I won't be searching for you anywhere or on google, I got more valuable kw's to work on.
