I'm reading the book "Making a Living Without a Job" by Barbara J. Winter. Talk about the right book at the right time! My copy was published in 1993 before web sites and blogs, so I googled her and found her web site with all kinds of additional information, resources and inspiring articles and stories. I highly recommend checking out her website. There is also an updated version of the book.
I even posted on her blog! Such a daring move for someone who usually likes to lurk unknown in the background.
Here's the link to her blog if you're interested:
