    Define Webmaster. Do you mean a person who designs and develops Web sites (which are by definition Web Designers and Web Developers) or merely the people who are responsible for the day to day maintenance of said Web sites (which would be the Webmasters).

    In both cases of Dan's definition yes. My day job title is Application Developer and Webmaster. My night job title is Freelance Web Designer.

    I make money, and if my situation was normal it would be enough to do a living... since my expenses (for reasons that I will not explain here, else the thread will go for ever) are so high, no, I don't.

    I do.

    My 9-5 pays the bills and my freelance stuff pays for fun.

    Very very busy, though.

    I am 100% self employed working from home doing web development. Strangely enough when I first started I had no plan, and nothing more than $5K in the bank.

    Im now living comfortably but definitely in a minimalistic sense.

    I certainly do.

    I am the Corporate Webmaster for a large Fortune 500 Company.

    All of my side projects are just creme cheese on the cake.

    Well I guess so, buts that's just because my expenses are next to none. And that's because I live at home [18 yrs old] so my only expenses are nightlife and fun.

    But yeah, that's definitely the goal - and the dream. :P

    Though I technically don't have to earn a living at the moment, yes, my network if websites is my full time plus job and, in many ways, my life.
