    I was having a mourn to the old lady how I was not making enough from my sites and her response was the topic I choose to develop my sites on are too boring.

    My response was the common stuff are too competitive and does not pay much.

    Do you find your partner business or otherwise supportive of your sites and domains?

    If you don't have any shoe, fashion or cosmetics sites then what do you expect her to say ?

    My other half is supportive since she knows she'll get nice holidays out of it ....

    Mine is most of the time, I do find her getting bored if I talk for too long about a site or something though :)

    Most often her comments are "but you wont make much commission on those as they are cheap"
    or if I say how much I made that day she says "Can I have some to go shopping then?" So I keep quiet now :)

    Mine is fully supportive of spending any money made, but not in the slightest bit interested in what makes it! And she moans about how long i spend on the pc.
    I'm hoping to setup a web based business for her to run, but will have to hypnotise her first.

    Mine was very supportive when I got made redundant and put forward the suggestion of going back to full time through our company rather than my previous full time employed & part time through the company.

    I can even give her a few drop lists every now and then to sort through and she's picked a few good ones in the past :)

    My wife doesn't really take an interest until i tell her that i sold a name,and then it's only "How much?" lol.
    But yes she does put up with me constantly on the laptop with very little moaning,so in that respect yes she is supportive.
