    When you start something and at some point you could even sell your knowledge and experience...with tiny steps your hobby becomes your job.
    Is it a bad thing to transform a hobby into income?
    As a freelancer in web-design area this thought, this question has to many answers!

      I started out years ago designing a genealogy website for my family. I enjoyed it so much I did a couple more sites for non-profit groups and then was contacted by a few small companies to do their sites. So, yes you can turn your hobby into a job. With so many changes over the years and so many inexpensive sites that offer web hosting, etc. the competition is fierce. Income may not justify this a full time job so you may decide to keep it as a hobby.

      Is it a bad thing?  As always-it depends.  Things can get monotonous if there's no variety.  I suggest carving out time for you to explore and play.

    The only frustrating thing I find about being an affiliate marketer and self employed is you constantly have to push yourself to achieve your best and to work!
