I just analyzed a collection of all images that I had uploaded in 2014... took the total amount of income, divided it by the number of images, and then by the #of months (16 since jan 2014) and the results were a tiny bit better than my Q1 images R.P.I. 

That's probably not an accurate way of gauging it, but it's something.  For instance, some images were uploaded in January, while others were uploaded near the end of the year.  Some were live in the collection much longer.

Paralysis of analysis.  On a positive note, I've uploaded more images in Q1 2015 than all of 2014.  Time for me to go edit some more and feed the beast before I end up losing my afternoon to youtube or social media.

Thank You, Gel-O, for kind explanation.
HC is excellent thema.
And You must really have nice, high quality photos, because 40, 50 sold every day with so small portfolio is simply WOW.
Respect.

En,
30 a day for a weekday is normal, weekends/holidays....not so much.
I think it has more to do with "nursing license/access to good medical stuff" than "nice" or "high quality".
Thanks so much for your kind comments and happy shooting.

The number of sales is not so high, indeed, but April is a great month in terms of $!
It is already my second best and with 2 days left, I might be able to break my previous record :)

I have made collections on SS of images uploaded each year. it is interesting. I totally agree that things would be super painful without the income from legacy uploads.

That's normal fluctuation.  It's perfectly normal to sometimes have 90 and other  days 110.  If it was 40 today then you would have reason to be concerned.

I had a zero download day yesterday on SS on a perfectly normal weekday - something that hasn't happened to me since I joined them in August 2006. I am concerned...

If this is directed at me: I have around 3.400 photos online with SS and add 300 - 400 per year. I never was a big seller, and never will be, but the trickle of sales was always constant... Up to April 2015, that is...

No, I upload my "old" (as in at least one year old) editorial sport shots. That produces (or used to produce) a slow, but constant trickle of sales...

That said, after my zero-sales-Tuesay, I had a perfectly normal Wednesday...

Update: April is not just BME, but the first month to break into 4 figures earnings :)

OK, Friday was a holiday in many places, so sales probably would be low. BUT THIS LOW???
And Saturday...well...is Saturday....BUT THAT BAD???
And then of course Sunday. Well, Sunday is never good. BUT THIS IS DIRE EVEN FOR A SUNDAY.
And FINALLY there was Monday. Outside the UK, a normal day. BUT SALES WERE ON A PAR WITH CHRISTMAS DAY.

Whatever is going on?
:(

I'm more concerned over the fact that SS sold just as many images in April as in the previous 3 months but the return dropped away like a stone.

It's got to be as a result of their "exciting" new terms :(
