How much money can a Flash programmer make from Flash game developing?

Flash game developer make money?
Since start blogging about making money as a Flash developer, I've been filtering the big question of most of the Flash developers out-there: How much money can a game developer make as a freelancer? How much money can a Flash developer make by developing Ad-games? Join in-game-advertising networks? Let's start…

Most of the Flash technology programmers in the world were in some point of her life in the situation where they had to decide: Should I go into casual games developing? This issue was on my mind as a Flash site developer since it’s all about finance questions – How much money will I make if I'll stop developing crappy Flash sites and start develop amazing casual games.
If you try to calculate how much will you exactly make – you're heading the wrong way.

Ask yourself first:

1. Can I run my own business?
2. Can I work from home?
3. Do I have the ability to work alone, in professionalism matters?

4. Am I ready to get into the online life of MySpace/Faceboook/NewGrounds/Xpogames etc…? (If you just said: "Huh?" them forget the rest, you're not ready!).
Check out these few facts:
1. There are special portals for game developers: Kongregate, Armor Games, Miniclip etc. Use them.
2. Mochiads (and Google with new bet testing) can supply advertisers for any Flash game. You get paid per click (for 1000 gameplayes, you'll get around $1).
3. Developing games in Flash is the easiest way (the easiest, not 'easy') to get into the game development world.
