One of the more lucrative things an Indie Writer might do with his or her talent is to learn to design websites. With all the Web Design Software on the market, setting up a website is simple. The hard part, at least for most people, is providing the content for said website. That is where you, the Indie Writer, have a distinct advantage considering your hoards of knowledge and your magic pen.
A website (or multiple websites) not only provides hours of entertainment for the Indie Writer, but also provides a valuable service to the public while at the same time making passive money for you... the Indie Writer/Web Designer... through advertisements & sales. While you are off writing your next awesome book or skipping through the tulips dreaming about your next awesome book, your website could still be providing you with residual income.
