The Association of Shareware Professionals has posted the results of 
their September 2004 survey:

Don't let the term "shareware" throw you.  Very few members of the ASP 
turn out true "shareware", in the sense of fully-featured apps that rely 
solely on the honor system for compensation.  Today's ASP membership are 
for the most part turning out commercial wares, with semi-functional or 
time-limited demos just like the major vendors.  In other words, ASP 
members are individuals and small businesses who turn out commercial 
software, just like you. :)

The report contains some interesting and perhaps inspiring info.  Most 
noteworthy is that such software tends to fall into two groups: 
hobbyists, which make relatively little money, or really successful 
professional efforts that pull in far more than the average per-person GDP.

Worth a read....
