    What kinds of different things do you have to put money into to keep your AM biz going? Obviously the site maintaining, etc. But what are some other things that you guys have to put money into?

    unless you're strictly SEO the most expensive thing is advertising

    beyond the obvious, I pay to outsource content/design/coding. I'm lazy when it comes to that.

    I do all 'digital service' products. If it can be billed to your home phone bill, it's more than likely mine.

    Do any of you guys do this as a stay at home job to make a living? I mean are you confident enough that you'll always be able to make money as long as you put in the time and effort? The reason I ask is because I would love to work from home and in a way, be my own boss. I've been at my current job for 6 1/2 years and am only making $14/hour. After benefits, 401K, etc. I bring home about $500/week. It's kind of discouraging because in Michigan, and especially in my town, it's one of the better places to work and better paying places, but as you can see, I still don't make very much money. I also have a wife and 2 kids to support, so as you can imagine, things get tight when it comes to money. I also have a part time job at a gym, so that is some extra income. Sorry for the rant, but I'm just looking for a better paying alternative-I need to find something.
