No. Web anything is shit. If you have a genuine interest in that stuff find a decent job inside a company then work your way out.
Its perrenially undervalued, there are low barriers to entry so supply is high, it looks easy, it takes artistic talent or extensive AB testing and in general a company can farm it out to a contractor for sub-minimum wage.
