Currently I work full time in a non technical, non web job. I have been learning html, css, javascript and jquery for 3 months and have built a couple of sites in my free time. I'd like to start building web sites full time so that I can devote 70hrs a week to it (as opposed to the current 50hrs day job, 20 hrs web design). I'm not looking to get rich, just get by, while I learn.

I'm thinking of learning Wordpress to start doing client work since it is a quick and easy.

I've also thought about applying to a few web dev jobs and hoping that somebody takes a chance (maybe offering to work for a reduced salary).

Can anyone make any suggestions or share how they got their "big break"?
