I understand what you mean, but I have an idea to get around that. I can work at a higher rate but put more hours in than I bill, to ensure high quality code.

comment Ruby freelancing: realistic expectations?
I intend on making a few things for myself, so I have something to show my capabilities. I would work for $5 an hour to start; I love programming and $5 * 20 hours (2 days of serious work) is enough to cover a month's expenses.

Yes, I'm a n00b to programming, coming from a philosopher/artist educational background (which is why Ruby appeals to me). I know that there is more work for PHP than Ruby, but if I hate the language, I don't think I'll get really good at it, or be enthusiastic.

@ctcherry, also, about the PHP thing...I thought it was best to focus on learning 1 language at a time, especially as a beginner? X_X

I know this isn't a great place, but I didn't know where to ask =/ do keep in mind I'm a noob. I seem to intuitively understand OOP, but I'm still learning syntax.
