I have a question for all you web designers and tech writers. Living in San
Francisco, quite possibly the most expensive residential rental market in
the country (or world?), I am wondering if the salaries for web and tech
writing positions are in line with the costs of living, or would I make
nearly as much living in a cheaper city like San Diego (and therefore be
able to afford my own tiny little studio apartment which I can't even do
here on my measly desktop publishers salary!)

Just a thought. Seems this area is so bogged down with talent that the
competition makes it a tough market, with Silicon Valley and all. Is it too
much to ask to want to do web designing and tech writing and afford a
private apartment? Ye gads I'm not talking about living at the Fairmont! (of
course here I dont need a car).

Living in the land of $1500 a month studios!
