If you are on tilt then don't move until nl25 since the rake is highway robbery. But on any other site moving to nl10 is fine. So i'd either switch sites, or play sngs until you are rolled for nl25.
The major adjustment you have to make from sngs --> cash is learning to play deepstacked; the most important of which is learning to fold. Since the stack:blind ratio is so much smaller in tournaments than in cash, you have to be able to let go of hands alot easier in a cash game. In a sng it is rare that you will ever fold tptk but you have to be able to do so in a 100bb+ cash game. Basically, you can stack off with a much wider range in sngs/mtts than in tournaments. I think alot of people don't realise this for a little while, and just bleed money in all in pots when they make the transition (i know i did it for a period when i first switched to cash).
