50% of Our Readers Work Full Time on the Internet

By Daniel Scocco - 0 minute read

I must confess that I was surprised with the results. When I launched the poll last Monday asking our readers whether or not they worked full time on the Internet, I was expecting at most 20% of them would say “Yes.”

It turns out that almost 50% of our readers do work full time online (47% to be precise). We had a total of 371 people casting a vote, so the results should be somewhat meaningful. Another 40% of the readers who took the poll said that they don’t work full time yet but are definitely planning to. Only 13% answered that they don’t work full time on the Internet and don’t want to.


Interesting huh?

Anyway, I am glad to know that almost 90% of our readers are either working full time online or planning to. I firmly believe in this professional path (more on this on a future post).

Thanks for everyone who answered the poll, and stay tuned for the next one.

    For me, this statistic is very surprising. Hopefully someday many Malaysian will acknowledge blogging as a professional career.

    Not sure where you are getting your data on the demographics for this site, but quantcast.com is showing a larger 35-49 age group with a high level of college educated users. The way I’m reading that data I would have to say that the 50% full-time results would be pretty close to accurate.

    It would be interesting to do a follow-up poll asking those that do work full-time on the internet to rate their success.

    @Lee, pretty much, but I don’t think that is necessary. I will write a guide on that some day.
