Just interested. I know that a waiter in the US makes about $1500-$2000 a month. You can earn with your blog, focus groups etc about that and I know that not all of people have a higher degree(so they work as waiters, shop consultants etc), so why don't you want to eat from Internet, at least those of you without a diploma? I lived on about $1800 a month in Illinois for a whole year and I was eating only from restraunts(IHOP, McDonalds, Subway, Papa John's etc)(which are expensive) and my apartment for three month was about $1000 a month and then $500 a month(which is expensive again). I also was buying clothes at malls(not Walmart).At that time I was stupid and wasted my money. But it was a pretty expensive life, pretty comfortable and tasty life. After that I've cut my expenses more than in a half(still being in need of a room for rent), but still I was eating a lot of stuff from bananas and olives to ice-cream and cookies. And it was again a good life. Americans can get a lot of money from Internet, then why don't you live on it, instead making it your "extra" income?
