If this trend continues I will have worst result across the board. Summer or recession?

I'm coming to the same conclusion.  Very Depressing.

I looked back over the last two years, however, and June was bad in each of them. 

July is almost here.   :-\

Yep.  Very depressing month. 

I can only hope this is the worst one this year.  If July and August are as bad or worse heaven help us  :P

My sales have been slow across the board except shutterstock has been my BME. I also bulk uploaded a bunch to them in the middle of the month so I'm sure that had something to do with it.

in that case, you'll need to reveal your strategy. witholding info creates bad karma, you know.  ;)

Oops!   

You are right.  Then I will do some extra good actions this weekend to compensate.

Not bad to me, possibly will end about the same as May.

DT and Fot will probably have BMEs. 
IS slowed right down in last week and will probably end up WM this year. 
SS about normal.

Talking about karma. When I posted here about how bad the month is I got 3 PELs on 123RF. I would call it good start of weekend :-)

A little better than average for me. I think a
lot of it has to do with the composition of our individual portfolios.

For instance, my sales usually take a nosedive in November.
But my port is weak in winter seasonal images & I have zero Xmas stuff.

...while I know that I'm still a newbie (when it comes to microstock), June has been the best month I have had this year (I only started submitting to any micro last Dec).  This month at SS has been nearly double the next highest month I have had to date.  My accepted contributions are still only tiny amounts compared to most around here--far to little to make any extrapolations about the general state of things.  Basically one recent shoot has been well received and accounts for a few dozen downloads in June itself.  

I hope the trend continues, but fortunately/unfortunately my commercial-fashion assignment work has kept me so busy that I haven't had a chance to create many new shots for micro.  Next month might yield some useful info (about SS at least), but it will be Aug. before I can do any significant micro shooting.

NO it's not - sorry for you.
But you can't compare this month to last month or any other month this year - you need to compare to last June. There are too many variables that make month to month comparisons useless. If you are ahead of last June then you are on the right track - if not then you need to be concerned. Personally I have always bested the previous year and don't see that trend changing.

Well, I have twice the number of files and 1/4 the number of downloads as compared to last June on IS.  Guess I need to be concerned....

I am having a great month & summer.  Whatever this "summer slowdown" people speak of is not something I have experienced.

I agree with the month to month comparison, I also think it makes a difference how big portfolios are and how actively they are contributed to.  Someone who consistantly has new content will likely do better than someone who has a stagnant portfolio.

I long since stopped comparing months to other months or years to years. Too depressing. Instead I look upon each sale as a burst of sunshine that defeats the gloom for awhile. Thankfully I don't need to make a living at this.

For me this whole year has been a bit slow, but June is a bit better than the last two months. Only DT is down, but I stopped uploading there and I deleted around 2500 images.

I'm exclusive (and full-time) on iStock and this month is on track to be my second BME.
