I often get ask how I earn my money or what my job is. I’ve serious problems to describe it in few words. Often I get responses like “you do homepages?” or ”$ 15,- for over a month of work?” or “Can you check my PC, some strange things going on?”

How do you explain your job as author to people with no sense for digital media? A one sentence solution would be perfect ;)

I find my self in the same situation, and telling them that I do ‘freelance’ would lead to other several questions, so I guess I’m going with ‘unemployed’ from now on…

Undercover agent maybe? :D

I don’t know, maybe a simple “I work on internet” would do the job.

I simply say I make websites.

Sidenote: I’ve been married for 4 years and my father in law just really figured out that I actually run a business and I’m not “living an artist lifestyle.” His respect for me went through the roof. It’s quite funny.

Self-employed – which stands to be the best answer. Truly you are self-employed. You work when you want to without been pressured and you earn even more than some people that are employed.
