Making the Jump to Original Fic

Because this is the most awesome com ever...

I know there are some professional writers lurking here on Spock_Uhura who have made the jump from fanfiction to original fiction and writing for a living.  I'm curious how you've gone about it.

I really like the instant feedback I get online while writing fanfic.  I don't think I could write a 100,000 word story without the constant commentary.  Have any professionals out there written a novel online, then sold it?  Will publishers not touch you if you've put your work online first?

I know in the tech world techies have published their blogs as books and people have bought the books even though all the content was available free.

Anyway...thoughts?
