    I'm just wondering who is doing this full time. I used to do this full time when I was fresh out of school, but ever since Google terminated my adsense account, I had to go get a real job and so far I'm not liking this 9 to 5 grind. I missed the good old days where I just sit on my ass and count my money.

    Trying to get my blackhat income up again, so maybe I can quit my job. But I keep thinking what if I get banned from the affiliate programs, which basically keeps me trap into working a regular job.

    Blackhat income is not so reliable, unless you make so much that you don't ever have to work again. So, is anyone out there doing this full time for like more than say 3 years straight? Don't you ever worry about being banned and losing all your income?

    I burned all the bridges when i quit my university and dedicated to (blackhat) internet marketing. I can't go back to a job, as i have no university studies.

    So far i have not had any problems, banking and living well. Will there be a time when i ll regret this decision? No. I am too arrogant to be a slave at work again(i worked for several months part time in university, and 2 weeks full time in a holiday). If blackhat marketing is not going well, i have what it takes to get into online fraud. If online fraud is not going well i have what it takes to go into offline fraud.

    But i have a sick psychology about life and life morals so don't listen to me.

    You do what you gotta do to survive. Simple. No-one wishes to be in that situation but if it happens, you have to man up and do the business.

    I'm a full time web worker (for myself) and mix white hat with black hat. Thinking of devoting more of my energies to blackhat. The advice about banking it and not blowing the dosh on stupid stuff is good - good times come and go. Other than that - diversify your programs and income streams and focus on action, not reading and downloading new stuff (I'm guilty of that!)

    mates be carefully with the fraud thing so ... it is a way, way different level from blackhat. Blackhat makes you get banned by SEs or affiliate networks or whatever ... in the worst case you loose a server or domain .... but fraud can put you into jail very very easily! After this is once recorded ... you are really f***** up and from there is almost no way back.

    By online fraud i mean stuff like sending fake leads to cpas networks, adsense autoclickers, selling warez, etc... not credit card fraud, phishing or something like that.

    Hehe I kinda caught this weird virus you seem to have: I started to be financially independent doing something I love from home etc. when I was 18.

    Since then, it's become pretty much impossible to get a job for me simply because it just feels like the worst possible solution to me.

    One downside of doing blackhat full time is that it's kinda lonely staying at home everyday. Don't you think?
