Podcast: Making a living online in 2009

Tech support guru Dave Taylor talks about how he's supporting himself by offering free advice online, and how Twitter has helped his business.

LAS VEGAS--After writing several how-to books about computers, Web development, and other aspects of technology, Dave Taylor decided to take his show to the Web by creating AskDaveTaylor.com, a Q&A site focused on tech. He says that the site, which carries advertising, is bringing in enough money to support him, making him something of a role model for others who are looking for career options. He's also an avid Twitter user, which he says helps him build traffic for his Web site and enhance his other businesses.

At the Showstoppers event at the Consumer Electronics Show, Larry Magid asked Dave about his journey from author to successful blogger.
