it also totally depends on the market in which you're looking to work.

for example: people in Menlo Park CA are gonna pay you a helluva lot more than people in Green River Wy.

you need to feel out a lot of different angles before you can put a price on any job.

Its all relative.

I've had multi-year projects that I've done for the love of it - for free. I've had single-day projects that I would have paid to not have to do (day job, etc).

In between, there is a substantial range in fees. For me, it basically comes down to "How much do I think my spare time is worth", which is usually also relative to how much I earn in my 'day job'.

When I was unemployed, I was very un-picky about what work I would do, and for how much. Now that I am employed, my spare time is very valuable to me.

Also, as another poster said, area matters.. I've seen coders in europe and asia willing to work for pennies on the dollar in comparison to coders in the US. Then again, I've seen some California coders that charge 2-3x as much as other regions.

As a general statement, I consider programming php for anything less than $50 an hour "cheap". Granted, that puts the salary at over 100k a year, but its not salary - its the cost of your *spare* time, not a day job. Plus there are gaps between jobs, and so on.
