    Interesting guys, thanks for all the adive.

    You also don't work regular hours and you are there for your client(s) 24/7 pretty much.
    I guess that can be both good and bad.

    Also, don't listen to so-called "rules".
    Like, "it's not possible to blur an image with javascript", or "you cannot SEO an AJAX application", or "you can't reliably use javascript to create a cross platform multitrack audio engine".

    Just because someone else alerted the world in their blog that they couldn't figure something out, doesn't mean you cannot!

    I'm a PHP/MySQL Developer, but I work for a small company. How much can you expect to make doing this on your own? I assume you have some sort of hourly rate? Anyone willing to share this information?

    FYI, I have experience with PHP, MySQL, Javascript, CSS, XML, DOM, and some Flash/Photoshop (although I have no design ability at all!). Not looking for work, just curious!

    Well I cant tell you what I make =)
    Some months are good, some are bad. Some projects you overprice, some you get screwed on.
    If I went out on my own I believe I could make make more than what I do at my day job. But then I'd have no benefits, steady pay, etc.
    And I quote the project, not hourly.

    But in order to quote, I'm guessing you do an estimate of hours to completion + testing and such. Any ballpark for the hourly rate? BTW, I'm 12 months out of college, thats why I don't know this stuff I appreciate the replies too
